JorgeLee (2260) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 26, 2017
Cask, Free Press Cambridge. Vaguely red amber bitter, white foam. Sweetish, thin, pretty much devoid of hops, lingering hint of GK dishwasher house character. A supreme waste of effort.

mr_h (6011) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - DEC 11, 2016
Cask, festive ale, 1/2 pint, hand-pulled at Hengler’s Circus, Glasgow on 8 Dec 2016, floral, toffee aroma, amber brown with a thin bubbly cream head and patterned lacing, fruity, raisin, toffee flavours, subtle spice, creamy.

stevoj (5638) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 6, 2016
Cask draft at the Angelsea Arms. A bit more red and hoppy than the average bitter, bordering on an amber ale. Sharper and hoppier, some savory zest as well. The normal caramel notes were muted by the extra hops.

Mr_Pink_152 (5637) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - DEC 3, 2016
On tap at the Vic. Lincoln. Ruby colour with an off white head. Malty sweet aroma and taste. Nice enough.

Don2711 (494) - - NOV 28, 2016
Caramel aroma with toast. Mild on palate. Amber appearance. Malt hints. All in all not bad but nothing special.

stravale (3145) - Co. Westmeath, IRELAND - JAN 1, 2016
Cask @ The Linen Hall JDW, Enniskillen [301215]

Dark amber, clear, thin white head

Aroma of soft caramel, soft twiggy hops

Taste of soft caramel, light bitter twig hops, dab of GK yeast, bit earthy, dab of bitter toast, light spicy

Palate - Medium light body, light bitter. Finish as main flavour

Overall - Typical BBB twiggy hops, not my cup o’ tea

kermis (14716) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 24, 2015
Cask at the Goat and Tricycle, Bournemouth. Clear amber brown with a bubbly tan head. Aroma of fudge, toffee, caramel, malt and light dark fruits. Flavour is light moderate sweet and bitter. Light to medium bodied with very soft carbonation.

amhart88 (136) - Manchester, Lancashire, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2015
Smells of chocolate. Palate thinner than expected. There’s a sort of sickly sweetness to it which I don’t find appealing. Fans of sweet ale might like

Cokemonkey11 (1106) - - DEC 19, 2015
Cask, Pint, scotch Hop. Pours medium hazelnut brown with a medium tan head subsiding slowly. Carbonation throughout. Scent is very mild, little bitter. Taste is medium hazelnut ale yeast with light frothy body. End is a little bitter and even a tiny bit sour. Good but uninteresting.

jmgreenuk (10104) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - DEC 16, 2015
Cask at the Pump House, Shirley. Poured a crystal clear medium amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is light hop. The flavour is moderate to light bitter with a malt, grainy, light woody hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.
