Level 42 Bottleshare. Thanks to Fergus. Light haze on this gold beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is light and semi dry with reasonable carbonation. Smooth malts, mildly sweet, trace of rye tang. Whisper of paper. Mild floral fruits and mild spicy bitterness. It’s not awful!
Bottle shared in London - thanks to Fergs. Pours totally clear gold with a frothy, white head. The nose has some white grape, pale bread, ripening lemon. Medium sweet flavour with more white grape, lemon candies, melon, white bread, low bitterness. Light bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sweet finish with OK balance, more pale bread, hay, white grape. Pretty simple, but drinkable. Theydon_Bois (20905) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2016
Bottle at Level 42, thanks to Fergoose, 14/11/16. harrisoni (19413) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2017
Light haze on a golden orange with a decent off white cap.
Nose is damp straw, orange peel, straw, biscuit.
Taste comprises melon, straw, tangerine, light perfume, grains.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close.
Ok middle of the road affair, not unpleasant.
Bottle from Tesco and drunk at home. Amber slight haze lasting white head. Some rye on the aroma. It’s an odd beer. Some spicyness. The aroma isn’t great. Some malt, a little hop on the end that doesn’t have huge character. Yes some spicy rye but that’s about it. A bit boring. Ok but apart from the rye there isn’t much to this beer.

Bottle thanks to Fergoos. It pours clear deep gold with a thick, fluffy white head. The aroma is bready, spice, paper, earth, hay, damp wood and porridge. The taste is crisp, bitter, soapy citrus, porridge, bread, straw, cereal, grainy and light spice with a dry fine. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Fairly basic stuff. bhensonb (15843) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 4, 2016
Bottle from Wine & Cheese. Pours very hazy gold with a slight white head. Aroma of sweet pale prunus fruits and I think rye. About med body. Flavor is rye spice, pale prunus fruits, and perhaps some citrus, grape and floral. I think it could stand more rye. It’s certainly not dry, and it’s only moderately bitter. But the combination of flavors works very well for me. I think it’s quite nice. Ratman197 (15456) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUL 28, 2017

Bottle. Poured a dark copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate complex hop and earthy aroma. Medium body and a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good drinkable brew.
