john44 (3101) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2017
Bottle. Ruby coloured. Very malty (toasty malts, grainy, toffee, caramel, burnt sugar, nutty notes). Fruity (dark fruits). Earthy hops in the taste. Lively carbonation. Sweetish. Dry throughout. Long, very dry, malty finish. (2008)

Derbeth (946) - Kraków, POLAND - JAN 31, 2017
Bottle. Ruby colour, clear, small head. Aroma is nuts, toffee, a bit of herbal hops. Medium bitterness, no sweetness. Smooth, easy to drink. A very good example of English bitter.

Mishnok (308) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2016
From 500ml bottle. Little aroma, nutty brown colour with little to no head. Nutty, subtle malts, earthy taste. Light bitters coming through. Weak body. Nothing bad, but just not that remarkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MrTipple (4968) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2016
Grain and intense cereal malts, dust, straw. Hazy, dark brown, small, creamy, beige head. Light bitter. Bitters continue and intensify, grain and cereal malts, some floral and grassy hops. OK Bitter, nothing too spectacular though. Pint at The famous Royal Navy Volunteer, Bristol.

ozzatoadisback (173) - ITALY - MAR 30, 2016
Light brown/dark red, small and weak head that recedes quickly. Aroma is fruity (cherry?), slightly nutty, maybe with a hint of earthiness. Taste is mostly sweet with toffee and some fruitiness. A hint of tea-like bitterness in the finish and in the aftertaste. Light to medium body, very light carbonation; smooth and easy, a bit too thin. The overall feeling is good as the beer is very smooth and drinkable; still, not much is going on

Enjoyable, though it does not improve over time, making the bottle a little too big.

Ozmag (1) - Cammeray, AUSTRALIA - AUG 16, 2015 does not count
I really enjoyed this beer it is a very slow to pour beer that must not be served too cold

ManVsBeer (10476) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2015
Cask @ Marriott Hotel, Durham. It’s a brownish ruby-red ale with a creamy head. It has a bushy sweet berry and floral aroma with a dry and fairly unexciting flavour in this respect.

s_hartshorne (2784) - wakefield, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2015
