Bottle. Malty (caramel, toffee). Fruity (citrus, oranges, peel). Hoppy (floral & spicy hops). Great Malt/Hop balance. Sweet with citrus hoppy bitter edge. Lingering malty fruity finish. Easy drinking beer. (2008)

rodsquad (205) - Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - FEB 12, 2017
Bottle as gift. Pours clear ruby-copper with a light beige head. Nose of toffee then buttery brown bread, mild warming malts then lemonade. Taste is sweet syrupy malt with a mildly bitter citrus peel hop and more buttery bread on the finish. A soft body with moderate carbonation with an oily finish. Overall the sweet buttery malts and nice balancing citrus hop work in harmony making it smooth and refreshing.

blackradioboy (202) - SCOTLAND - FEB 11, 2017
Bottle. Unpleasant-ish smell on first pour. Deep amber colour. Fairly shallow flavour. I first tasted this years ago and couldn't remember what it was like. Five minutes after drinking this bottle, amnesia returns. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

zacgillbanks (5078) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2017
Bottle from Morrisons, Birtley, Gateshead. Bright amber coloured with a thin white head. It has a woody, gentle pine and malty flavour followed by a slight almond and grapefruit finish. Not bad.

Caramel, bread and freshly mowed grass, none of them particularly strong, are released in the attractive pour over a copper-penny ale. Good balance of bitter and sweet with just a little more sweetness than lingers into the finish. Could easily drink a few of these in a sitting.

Im not going to remember this beer after Im done drinking it, so its hard to really judge it beyond "Its not terrible." And it isntits got a njfe smoothness to it that makes it easy to drink, but thats kind of all it has.

madnorwegian (209) - FRANCE - JAN 28, 2017
Reminds me of a bad version of Sam Adams Boston Lager. Red amber color. Not much head. Malty flavor with a slight bitter finish. Underwhelming.

Rorys Birthday bottles. Pitched as an English bitter this was more a malty Scottish eighty shilling. Little bitterness but pleasantly malty with nothing on the nose.

MrW (640) - Mechelen, BELGIUM - JAN 17, 2017
On tap. Aroma of Apple, herbs, fruity hops. Poured orange blond with an off white head. Malty taste, caramel, turns into a more bitter taste. Dry bitter finish. I liked this. Easy drinking.

BrewWhatIWant (168) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 4, 2017
Pours copper with a fluffy off white head. Aroma of toffee and malt. Taste is slightly sweet with notes of grains, light malt, and earthy hops. There is a tangy vinegar off-flavour and metallic note that I dont remember when I had this about a year ago. It might be just a bad can but its so off putting I dont think I will be trying this again.
