Some malt aroma. Amber mid brown coloured and toffee flavoured with a hint of fruit. A little dry in the finish. sebletitje (10287) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 24, 2009
sample at Crown & Goose, Knoxville, TN
pours golden, white head.
aroma and taste, bitter hops with hints of citrus, not overly bitter and keeps some soft malt balance.
I liked their IPA version a lot better. astrofrk (341) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 21, 2009
Cloudy orange. Medium head. Aroma: English bitter hops. Flavor: Sweet, caramel, then the bitter kicks in to finish. JohnQPublic (387) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - DEC 28, 2008
Draught. Pours a clear orange-gold, with a bit of a white head. Nose is sweet caramel malt, a bit of biscuit, some citrus peeking through as well. Taste is sweet caramel malt blending with a nice, biscuity malt presence, with a finish that allows some citrus and pine hops to poke through just a bit before a nice, dry, bready finish. Mouthfeel is smooth, medium-low carbonation and a light body. If rated against the style, this one is not a very good bitter - but it is a fantastically drinkable session beer in my opinion, that I could have downed all night.

Draft at Crown & Goose. Poured clear dark copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted malty aroma. Medium body with a slick texture. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Drinkable brew.

Draft at the Crown & Goose during half price pints and half price fish and chips Mondays. Semi hazy brownish orange color with a slight white head, no retention but some lacing. Nice caramel sweet aromas, some malt graininess, and lemon or citrus zesty hops. Pretty sweet malt body with a great hop bite for a crisp finish.

Golden orange, thin head. Aroma is rather faint, but seems grainy and juicySome subtle sweet, fruity notes, and a crisp, understated bitterness. Tasty session ale. NachlamSie (3534) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 19, 2008
Draught. Pours a hazy light gold. The aroma is pretty weirdly floral and sugary. I found the beer to be sharp, like water from a garden hose, though fairly zesty. Wild flowers are noted. Overall, the beer is pretty sweet for the style with some characteristics of gingerbread cookies. I can’t say I like bitters in the first place, this was no exception. decaturstevo (6343) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAR 19, 2008
On tap. I guess it was a light almost copper not gold not red. Aroma was just a hint of malt for me. Flavor of semi sweet maltiness and tones of hoppiness on the flavor. Not much of a bitter finish but I’m not sure there should be. A pretty nice refreshing drinker I would recommend to anyone. SpringsLicker (3665) - Tennessee, USA - MAR 13, 2008
Fairly clear medium gold body small white head.
Light malt aroma, little hops.
The hops make an appearance as a touch of bitterness in the flavor, but this one really comes across as a bit sweet for what I expect in a Bitter. They serve them a bit cold for an authentic British Pub, but they ar working on it. But a very drinkable brew, well crafted.
