Dashimus (229) - London, Greater London, - JUL 16, 2013
Cask at Cask Pub & kitchen. Puts dark amber with a thin white head with poor lacing. Aroma is light hop with a fruity, bitter orange bite. Quite a lot of malt. Taste is slightly malty, mostly bready with fruity hops. Minimal carbonation.

I had a number of pints of this last night. A decent quality session bitter, rich malty and nutty aroma with some stewed fruit. Nothing complex but an enjoyable drop indeed

Half pint, cask ale, shared with Finn at Bread and Roses. Clear amber body with a shade of red. Dotted spots on the glass. Filmy layer. Smell of tobacco and dried fruits. Mixed taste of tobacco, toffee and dried fruits, Mild bittersweet finish. Satisfying (Plymouth 25.09.2016).

TheKernOwl (202) - West Sussex, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2016
Not getting much out of this; again, that may be due to bottle being four months past best before date (my careless stock-rotation...). Similar nose to the same brewerys Light Ale, albeit with more pronounced toffee and caramel nose and in the mouth, and accordingly a slightly stickier mouthfeel (no bad thing) . Its somewhere between an "amber light" and a "red light" for me, this beer, though - I would stick to others in this brewerys range.

500ml bottle. Clear, copper colour with average to huge, foamy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Minimally soapy and floral, fruity hoppy aroma, notes of red berries, gooseberry, fruit parings, biscuity malty background. Taste is bitter hoppy, minimally soapy, cautiously floral, hints of unripe, green fruit, gooseberry, kiwi, cautious biscuity malty basis; (too) lively carbonation.
