danlo (3237) - Darlington, Durham, - NOV 14, 2012
Pint at Number Twenty2 Darlington. Clear yellow golden colour, creamy white head leaving lots of lacing and slight malt aroma. Light caramel malt taste with some bitterness, biscuit notes, and leaves a lingering dry back of the throat bitterness. Light body, quite drinkable.

foxo82 (927) - Bromsgrove (via Leicester), Worcestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2017
Bottle. Looks great - cloudy orange with a large head. Taste packs a fair punch for a lower ABV. Bitter grapefruit. Very good session beer.

alexmate (285) - South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2017
Had a weird smell, mainly malt, hops and a stale yeast smell. Taste is of caramel and bitter hops. Nothing remarkable, but quite interesting. Price Paid: £1.75 - 330ml bottle.

KikoDucky (179) - Trenčín, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JAN 18, 2017
bottle from Tall Boys beer market, Leeds. Pale golden colour, low aroma of citrusies, some herbs. Taste is easygoing, very fine full-body taste, good bittery, tangerines, floral, herby. Good.

comperchris (142) - - DEC 24, 2016
Pours golden but very hazy. Smells strongly of hops, tastes the same with quite a long bitter finish. Not bad but won’t be in a rush to have again. Nothing special.

weordie (1401) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - NOV 13, 2016
Pours golden with a fluffy head. Aroma is a nice hoppy aroma without anything to distinct. A nice, refreshing beer with a decent bitter finish. Nothing special but a nice beer.

berkshirejohn (6655) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2016
33cl bottle from Beer52. A hazy pale amber pour with a thin white head; citrus aroma with some yeast; smooth and surprisingly full bodied with a bitter lemon taste; and a clean crisp fresh finish with some tart fruit from the Nelson Sauvin hops. Very good.

matstrange (247) - Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2016
Bottle from Beer52 mail order box. Thin head and very cloudy with lots of bits floating. Nicely hoppy although slightly metallic similar to low alcohol beers. Goes well with dinner though.

Stuu666 (14843) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 3, 2015
Bottle at Craig’s. Pours golden yellow, nose is light toffee, taste is sweet, light fruit, dry burnt toffee.

Florya (2027) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 29, 2015
How : bottle Appearance : pale yellow, minimal white head. Aroma : mild fruit, berries, herbs. Palate : light body, soft carbonation.

jackafholmes (1021) - - JAN 17, 2015
Bottle from archer road beer shop, sheffield. Very pale with a small white head. Aroma is dry grassy hops and fruit too, lemon zest. Taste is crisp and refreshing, slightly bitter. A bit on the thin side.
