500ml bottle. Pours dark golden with moderate head. Yeasty and slightly floral aroma. Sweet brown sugar flavours, light toast and mild floral notes offset with a good amount of bitterness, though it’s the sweetness that carries through - perhaps a little too much. Very drinkable if not perfect. unstablefable (233) - SCOTLAND - JAN 24, 2013
Pours translucent golden with a two finger dense white head. Aroma is citrus but more bready or light wood, taste is bitter fruity hops with a strong bitter finish, some malt in there but not enough to balance it, dry finish mr_h (5476) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - JAN 24, 2013

Bottle shared with McTapps. A classic ale. Not outstanding but honest. Bit of roasted malt and grains in the aroma. Interesting dry and slightly bitter hops finish. alright beer.

Golden yellow, sexy sparkle Nice and very long spicy bitterness with honey and a firm rich chewiness. Rugged to a a degree and restrained there is depth and power without any sense of the extreme. pivnizub (10612) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - OCT 15, 2012
Bottle:Deep golden, with an orangey sheen and hazy, stable small off-whiite head, moderate fruity nose over a well detectable hoppy base; moderate to solid bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied; lingering, not overly dry, hoppy and fruity-malty finish. Despite of its strength a nice session-beer… Idiosynkrasie (7508) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - SEP 15, 2012
