sebletitje (9951) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 15, 2015
50cl bottle split in two, thanks Pierre T. Ambre, col blanc-cass. Arme au bouquet malt plaisant laissant un agrable ct biscuit et caramel. Le tout est accompagn par un houblonn fleuri assez dominant. Palais est lger, malt avec encore une pointe de biscuit trs plaisant, amertume reste fine et noble anglaise. Fleuri et citronn rappelant un EKG. Amertume est prenante sans tre trop devant.

AshtonMcCobb (6457) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 2, 2015
Bottle from Harveys online shop. Appearance - deep amber and clear, almost a red glow. Nice head. Nose - light apple or grape, muesli. Taste - apple and dry biscuits. Going into a orange tang on the finish. Palate - light bodied with a creamy texture and a fairly tangy finish Overall - I think this is decent given the low ABV.

Scopey (14219) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2014
Bottle from Middle Farm. It pours clear amber with a medium white head. The nose is toasty, grain, oatcakes, cereal and light caramel. The taste is toasty, light bitterness, lemon zest, cereal and dull wood with a short, dry finish. Light body, average carbonation and slightly watery mouth-feel. Light and simple. Not whole lot going on, but drinkable enough.
