090717. Can at home (abm). Pours clear copper with a disappearing head. Aroma mild hops, caramel. Rather British feel to this. Honey like tone to this. Nothing offensive but dull. dsimmons66 (18) - - MAY 11, 2017
Hoppy but light. Can exploded though! Easy drinker, good afternoon or weekday beer

Cask at The Albion Kingston. Some biscuity malt, a little toffee sweetness, some nuts, fairly light hop. Nice enough. BlackHaddock (7514) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 25, 2017
Hand-pulled pint in The Codsall Railway Buildings on 24th March 2017. A deep golden body with a decent off-white head of foam. Nice blend with neither the hops nor malts overpowering the other. Maybe more hops in the nose and more maltiness in the taste but only marginally. Subtle aroma and flavours, but easy enough to quaff. olio (10408) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 21, 2017
50 cl bottle @ home.

Pours clear golden color with a small white head. Aroma is quite clean malty and nutty with mild hops. Flavor is nutty dry and malty, mild orange notes, some bitterness, very typical English Ale all-in-all. Clean, simple, just not my kind of beer.
Copenhagen 16/1 2017. 50 cl bottle from Meny. Must be the most boring label on the shelf. Grey with a gold logo - and not much else. Pours slightly hazy golden yellow with very small head. Disappears almost instantly. Fruity and hoppy aroma. Some sweetness - but dominated by more citric odeurs. Pleasant but not very intense. Quite low carbonation - pretty flat - and slightly thick palate. Flavor is medium sweet followed by nice medium bitterness. Quite well balanced. More exciting than indicated by the label even though it’s a bit flat. leaparsons (10655) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2016
Bottle, Wine Tavern, Leicester. Hazy golden with an off white head. Biscuit and caramel with lemon. Lime rind with green apples. Floral with hints of wild strawberry. Not bad. R4N5H (1271) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 20, 2016
50cl bottle at The George, London on 17-Oct-2016. Clear golden amber colour with a medium sized white head. Malt and fruit aroma. Light body and carbonation. Fruity flavour - with malt, herbs, rose and light hops. Light bitter finish. Decent, but not outstanding. Plovmand (8530) - Grindsted, DENMARK - OCT 14, 2016
Bottle. It pours mostly clear deep golden with a medium white head. The aroma is caramel malty and flowery hoppy. The flavor is citrus and flowery hops. Caramel malts. A whiff of diacetyl. Ok. FatPhil (16635) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 11, 2016
Draught (Kitty’s, Helsinki)
Mid orangle tight head - maybe a touch under-conditioned, but still looks good. Lovely sweet honey malts and black tea aroma - classic bitter aroma. Some dark tracle too. Taste so simple, it’s just a bitter, but by heck it’s a proper bitter and that tastes great. Feels good on the tongue, good drinkabiliy, and a pleasant soft carbonation. F’kit, this might be an over-rate, but this is a textbook example of how even a "boring" real ale can be better than an on-paper more exciting kraft monstrosity. Finish is gently nutty and a touch sweet. Puts a smile on my face, and isn’t that one of the most important features? Oh, and the fatty bitty hops, did I mention the fatty bitter hops: Because I really should have mentioned that seared fat, but alas I was too rushed...
