Fruity aroma. Typical bitter appearance, rich orange, small head. Simple malty body, but with some well balanced hops poking up occasionally to. Soft palate, carbonation low. Fairly dull bitter, but certainly passable.
Cask, Criterion, Leicester. Hazy gold with a white foam. Aromas are autumn fruit with lemon. Lightly floral with caramel, apple and woody aspects. Flavours are stewed pear with green apple and some citrus. Peppery with dry, woody notes and a fruity, bitter finish. Average. wheresthepath (2334) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 27, 2011
[500ml bottle from The Bottleneck, Broadstairs, that Dad shared with me - cheers!] Golden-amber, slight white head, slight fizz. Bitter, herby, resinous, a few flowers, but just didn’t work for me I’m afraid. rosenbergh (11532) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 22, 2011
