thejackpacker (374) - East Sussex, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2017
Bottle from brewery in Lewes. If this is what beers were like being sent around the world in the 19th century, take me back! The Star of Eastbourne is delicious. Strong, full of flavour, slightly sweet and slightly bitter. You must be in the mood for a more meaty beer, but if you are, enjoy, its a stayer.

pivnizub (10512) - Bochum, Porř, GERMANY - NOV 6, 2016
Bottle: Deep golden, clear, persistent white head with a little lace; bitter-sweet fruity (raisins) and malty nose with mild, but distinctive traces of herbal to "medical" hops; moderate to solid sweet-bitter flavour, medium bodied, soft; lingering drier and "hoppier" finish, balanced by juicy malt. A pleasure...

EdKing (2550) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2015
Bottle in the Royal Oak, Borough. Served room temperature. Clear light chestnut brown, thin white foam head. Nose is caramel, crystal malt, boiled sweet, slight earthy English hop, some biscuity malt. Bit dull really. On the taste its as above but theres some earthy dry hop, bit of ale fruitiness. Old fashioned caramel and boiled sweet bottled bitter. Bottle condition for Gods sake.

McNeillR (2298) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 27, 2015
Paler amber than the bitter, slight buzzy head. Toffee and pineapple nose. Lean grassy bitterness, the "full hop" is a bit of a melon and lime stretch and it finishes clean enough. Agreeable enough finish, firm tinny bitterness.
