hohops (964) - Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2014
Orangey amber in colour, a small white head. Hoppy notes in the aroma, a bit of citrus there as well. Taste is fresh and a bit floral, hop bitterness, quite a lingering finish. Pretty good.

a_cross (639) - Poole, Dorset, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2013
Cask at The Bermuda Triangle, Poole, badged as Special Bitter rather than Scrumdiggity; amber-brown; moderate white frothy head; unassuming fruit and malt aroma; fruity ripe citrus flavour balanced by plenty of developing woody hop bitterness; a straightforward, sessionable bitter.

ManVsBeer (10022) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2013
Slightly cloudy amber coloured with a thin head and a small fruity aroma. Has a sour bitterness that lingers.

jmgreenuk (9150) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - FEB 28, 2013
Cask at the Craven Arms, Birmingham. Poured a clear amber with a thin bubbly white head. The aroma is malty, but weak. The flavour is weak bitter, a little malty and some citrus hints. A very agreeable and drinkable session beer but I would prefer a little more bitterness if im honest.

SarkyNorthener (4489) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2013
[email protected], wolverhampton. Amber coloured, medium head with good lacing. Little aroma. Taste is a dash of pepper and nothing much else. Pretty dull. Not a good beer at all.

Draught (Angleterre)
Lovely dry black tea aroma. Some earthy bitterness. Very well attenuated palate, but a little watery. dry earthy hops, quite thin. Carbonation low. Well made and easily drinkable, but a bot watery for me.
