Bottle. Orange color. Grapefruit and melon in the aroma. Firm citric hopbitter flavor. Thinnish, but characterful ale. Oily, earthy hops, citrus and melon in the aftertaste. meerbier (1474) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - JAN 2, 2012

Floral, fruity, herbal and malty aroma. Yellow, fine white head, good lace. Sweetish, light bitter, herbal, hint of toffee, malts. Medium body, flavourful, easy.
Tasted this at the Paisley Beer Festival in April 2002. Cask, handpump dispense. Crystal clear garnet in colour with a thin white head. Slight hint of berry fruit in the short malty aroma. Thin but refreshing mouthfeel and good lacing. Mixed malts give a fiery digestive biscuit base with tart redcurrant fruit present. Strong hop resins present in strength in the metallic tang to the dry aftertaste. Finish is rather dry with oak cask notes and crushed grape skins. This is not a Scottish 80/ but more of an English ESB in style. A decent session bitter none the less. reebtogi (6326) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 13, 2011
500ml bottle pours a slightly cloudy golden orangeish color with about a finger and a half of white head settling down to some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is light caramel malt and some earthy and citrusy hops. Taste is light caramel sweetness with an enjoyable earthy and citrus hoppy bitterness. Light to medium in body and fine carbonation leave a pleasing tingle on the palate. Nicely balanced, but just a tiny bit light on the body. Overall, this is a pleasant, easy drinking bitter. presario (4916) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 11, 2011
Bottle. Amber with a fair head and lasting skiff. Light golden ale scent. Thin malt and a hint of spice. Mouthfeel has a bit of a spritzy feel to it. Gentle spice rolls from front to back and lingers. Malty with caramel and toffee when you look overtop of the hops. Leaves me wanting something a bit more.
