cask at gbbf 2011 ... golden amber ... soft sweet fruity hop nose ... zezty light pine hop nose ... soft malt base Stew41 (2062) - Phuket, THAILAND - OCT 24, 2007
I liked this. Good example of the classic UK style but carries a touch more alcohol and caramel / toffee malts to create a slightly bolder flavour profile. Nice mild bitter finish. yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 18, 2006
Tasted 17/05/2006. 330ml bottle from Miramar Liquorland.
Gorgeous red-gold, bright, with a very light-tan head that collapes, disappears, and laces lightly. Toffee apple, grass and some mineral-like yeast notes on the nose - quite mild. Some nutty almond notes come through later. Dry malt in the mouth, well attenuated, with a strong grassy bitterness, a metallic note in the middle, and a lingering grassy hop finish. Light medium weight with a medium carbonation. Lacks a bit in the malt profile, only slightly more than an extra hoppy kiwi brown. markas101 (2482) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - MAR 3, 2006
Faint caramel aroma, deep amber colour, lightly sweet and bitter, slightly floral. omhper (25372) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 11, 2006
Bottled. Nut brown, brief head. Sweet with rounded moutheel and some resiny hoppiness. Very fruity and somewhat yeasty with lingering very bitter finish. Uncomplicated.
