Indifferent bottled ale, ruby coloured with a thin head, aroma of berry fruit and bitter hop. Dominant hop flavour with a bitter aftertaste. downender (9008) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2007
Bottle. A standard strong bitter. Amber coloured with little head. Red fruit and grassy hop aroma. Flavour had some biscuit malt and fruit, before a decent bitter finish. Ok. Maria (10211) - Thisted, DENMARK - DEC 15, 2007
Scotland August 2005, the last evening... Amber with a nice head and good lace. The aroma has aroma hops and the flavour has even more of it, and it also has notes of fruits and caramel. the finish has a nice bitterness. It was a nice surprise and I liked it... omhper (25958) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 26, 2005
Bottled. Dark amber. Papery aroma. Dry and ashy with some crystal amlt and clean, hard mouthfeel, low hop rate. Short, empty finish. Simplistic and uninspired. British beer? I guess so. Great? No way! johndoughty (5600) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2005
Golden with no head upon pouring.Bitterness dominates although there are other flavours present-its just hard to find them.A bitter that lives up to its name.

Poured from the bottle, a light brown, slightly cloudy but with a brilliant big rocky head. The aroma was a good blend of hops, malt and fruits which was reflected in the flavours. On the palate, a nice hoppiness was left in the mouth. I certainly got a lot more from this beer than I was expecting, will be a regular in my house I think. scotty (1235) - SCOTLAND - JAN 11, 2005
Initially very little aroma, but after a few minutes it opens up into lovely mix of malt & hops. Lovely mid-gold colour and a good botte-conditioned head that lasts. Not the best, but well worth a sup. nigos (631) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2004
This beer is Threshers own brand beer and despite working for them I have to report that it is distinctively average. The beer has a copper hue with a small foamy white head. Rich toffee and woody nose. Nutty roasted malt flavours with rusty hints and a slightly watery feel. A very short after taste of nuts any hoppy character.

Bottle. Very clear amber coloured beer with thin white head. Aroma is oaky, fruity, malty. Malty, caramel flavour; some hops some fruit. Thinish mouthfeel. Average, nowhere near great. Hopback shouldn’t have bothered. JoeMcPhee (10137) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 1, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 23, 2005 500 ml bottle brewed by Hopback. Dark amber colour, rocky, fast-fading off-white head. Aroma is very woodsy and oaky with a bit of orange/blackberry fruitiness. Flavour is slightly malty, a bit fruity and shows some woodsiness. Gets cloyingly sweet. Yeast seems to have thrown off some nastiness as well, a bit of DMS. Not enough bitterness for my liking either.
