Nice amber colour. Aroma a little astringent and malty. Taste bitter with fruit hints. Fair bite on palate but overall disappointing.

rok1024 (1273) - Maribor, SLOVENIA - AUG 23, 2014
Clear amber appearance, medium head. Fruity aroma, semi dry taste, toasted nutty notes. Not too long aftertaste. Below average for a Premium Bitter style.

Oakes (17172) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 14, 2014
Earthy sweet caramel, crunchy malt, touch of yeasty apple/pear character. Good basic bitter, though billed as Irish Red.

AshtonMcCobb (6476) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 30, 2013
On tap @ the Haymarket. This is somewhere between an Irish Red Ale and an English Bitter. Fruity and malty notes dominate the nose and the palate. There is reasonable balance even if there is some malt astringency on the finish. It looks attractive!

Beesbeer (452) - WALES - AUG 10, 2013
It was a hot night in Belfast and this was a great pint at The Crown. Aroma fruity, taste of sweet citrus tangerine and honey, followed by a long refreshing bitter palate. Lovely.

larsga (7497) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 9, 2013
Small offwhite creamy head doesnt last. Hazy amber body. Light fruity dusty aroma, very faint. Sweet smoky earthy musty taste with dusty fruity notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft, flat mouthfeel. Dryish dusty smoky toffee aftertaste with banana notes. Its surprisingly smoky and sweet, but quite nice, all the same. (0.284l cask, at The Old Swan Inn, York.)

foxo82 (890) - Bromsgrove (via Leicester), Worcestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2013
Cask at The Old Contemptibles, Birmingham. Dirty cloudy amber ale with a citrus aroma and citrus ginger taste. And another country ticked off.
