eastkenttom (128) - herne bay, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2015
Solid bitter, but just not sure I’d seek it out again. Might buy if it was on a special offer but this won’t live long in the memory. Fair.

3.6
Stuu666 (13435) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 2, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours light brown, nose is floral, light caramel, taste is similar, rich, chewy.

3.3
Fukito (1059) - Santiago, CHILE - JAN 2, 2015
Bottle. Pours a shinny orange/ light copper with golden hues with a medium, persistent creamy white head. Aroma is very faint yeasty fruitiness with a touch of butterscotch. Flavor is light crystal malts with flowery/ tea english hops, a touch of stale oxidation but fortunately fades. Medium to light palate, enjoyable and sessionable kind of heavy mild.

3.3
thomat (3868) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 17, 2014
British tasting @ Haket Bar. Pale amber with a tiny off white head. Fruity and hoppy tones. Medium to light body with a dry finish.

3.4
Simmo (27) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 14, 2014
Strong arome of various fruits and honey. Pours deep orange and slightly hazy with a thin beige head that lasts. Some lacing. Full bodied with average carbonation. Slick texture yet slightly sticky on the lips. Taste is light bitter with a medium/heavy sweet finish. Lots of fruit and honey flavours so if you like sweet fruity beers you’re likely to enjoy this.

3.4
hohops (998) - Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2014
Amber and clear, half finger off white head. Aroma- malty, caramel, raisin hints, hoppy. Taste- bitter hops, spicy hints, medium in the mouth and quite satisfying, bitter finish, fruity undertones, some toffee, hint of pine. Nice ale.

3.4
Lagerboy (2206) - British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 1, 2014
500 ml bottle. Clear brownish orange, off-white fading foam. Aroma of fruity c-malt and herbal hop. Taste is lightly bitter, herbal and grassy, berry fruity caramel/toffee malt, slightly floral, some spice. Soft carbonation, light-medium bodied, lightly hopped. A better bitter. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

Idiosynkrasie (7539) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - SEP 19, 2014
500ml bottle. Clear, amber golden colour with small to average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Typical British hop aroma, notes of gooseberry and red berries. Taste is dry hoppy with identical fruit notes, subtle malt sweetness, some biscuit. Nothing special.

3.4
Kauge (1958) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 6, 2014
Bottle from a Selver in Tallinn, Sept 2014. Pours a nice clear copper with a creamish off-white, retaining head, also gives good lacing. Nose... autumn fruits and malts most apparent, also toffee and slight caramel. Taste is grainy malts and near putrid fruits at first, then more sweet (toffee or caramel) in the middle, with a fair deal of hop bitterness in the finish. Palate is silky smooth with very little carbonation, yet the bitterness brightens it all up. A good, unpretentious and relatively cheap beer to down a few while watching some stand-up.
