JohnCook101 (535) - - FEB 7, 2013
500ml bottle. Pours copper with a good off-white head. Malty and yeasty aroma. A good amount of malt to taste, offset well by a touch of bitterness. Slightly sweet toffee and toast. A touch of honey and light floral notes. Not as heavy as it looks. A very nice, well balanced beer.

Bottle. Clear Orangey Gold in colour. Average foamy off-white head. Fruity; orange citrus. Hoppy; grassy and earthy hops. Malty; bready malts, caramel. Tastes a bit metallic. Moderately bitter citrus fruity and dry throughout. Easy drinking. (2015-09-26)

Pyobon (1358) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 6, 2017
(Bottle) Pours clear amber brown with good beige head. Nice aroma - herbal / seaweed / tea and some caramel notes. Medium body, good carbonation. Foretaste is a nice mix of caramel and fruity notes. The fruity notes are steadily replaced by a nice hoppy bitterness. Nice beer.

Onesimus (22) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2017
A balanced beer, foremost is the herby giving way to a light malty flavour. Easy to drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cristobal37 (870) - Budapest, HUNGARY - SEP 14, 2016
Bottle. Bubbily little head, bronze. Strawberry and malts aroma. Fruity and malty with a nice dry finish. Not your typical English bitter, light and tasty. Super drinkable and something I could definitely session. Thanks for sharing @kapusil !

FatPhil (14896) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 28, 2016
500ml bottle (Sip, Tallinn)
Clear amber, tight head. Sweet milky black teabag tea aroma, a bit fruity. Sweet fruity taste, toffee-ish malts, some toastiness. Medium palate, a little bit smooth from sweetness, but pleasantly carbonated too. Milky black tea comes back in the finish, and a delicate resiny hoppiness - nice. Lovely malty English ale. So simple, but so delicious.

Pours clear copper with low white head. Aroma of citrus, light fruit, caramel. Taste is sweet, initially somewhat fruity, followed by a caramel sweet finish. Thick bodied and creamy with soft carbonation.
