500mlFlasche. Kupferrotes Bier. Heller Schaum. Sehr schöne Optik. In der Nase nasses Holz, Kork, Malz. Wenig spektakulär. Sntrunk bitter. Dann Malz und Metall. Etwas Weinbrandt und Pilze. Es bleibt ein Hauch Eisenkraut auf der Zunge.

Leighton (21296) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2017
Bottle at home in London - sourced via Ocado. Pours totally clear burnished gold with a creamy, mostly white head. The aroma holds lightly toasted pale bread, a little citrus peel, faint leafy hops. Light-medium sweet flavour with basic bready malts, hints of toasted sugars, vague orange, mellow leafy bitterness. Light bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sweet finish, with lightly toasted bread, low bitterness. It doesn’t set the world alight, but it drinks OK.

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 (1404) - 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 (86) - 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

LazyPyro (1214) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2017
500ml bottle. Pours clear amber with a one-finger off-white head. Aroma: malty, caramel, fruit. Taste: sweet fruity malt, caramel/toffee, citrus, some bitterness but the finish is actually sweet. Medium-full body, smooth mouthfeel, good carbonation.

Cristobal37 (1143) - 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 !

kapusil (1432) - Budapest, HUNGARY - SEP 14, 2016
0.5l bottle. Hazy deep orange body, thin white head. Aroma of caramel, biscuit, orange zest and floral hops. Taste of biscuit, orange zest, yeast, caramel and floral hops. Nice English ale.

FatPhil (16102) - 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.
