500ml bottle - Golden amber body, thin white head. Nose is hoppy with some grapefruit and tea notes. Taste has a refreshing light hoppy note with tea and grapefruit featuring again with a malty element. Quite nice and simple.

Goddards standard ale. Ett bra hantverk men inget som stack ut. Typisk engelsk EKG karaktär.

Bottle courtesy of shubber85. Light amber with a small white head. Sweet malty aroma with a faint hint of spice... almost like cinnamon. Slightly sweet biscuity malt and a light herbal hops finish. Light bodied.

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.

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.

Bottle. Light hazy golden with a small off white head. Brown sugar, caramel, grain, light wort. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation, medium sweet and light bitter. Sugary, uninteresting.
