johndoughty (5504) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2016
Bottle. Bronze with a small head. Clear and quite bitter but not overpoweringly so. Sligh metallic flavour in background which was a bit offfputting.Pleasant but thats about all.

zacgillbanks (5356) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2016
Bottle from Booths, Keswick. Bright amber coloured with a thin white head. It has a nutty, earthy and chocolate flavour followed by a bitter-sweet, dry finish. Pretty good for the low ABV.

sarauckelman (550) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2016
Medium red-amber with little head. Pleasant sticky-fruit/slightly orange aroma. Jammy flavor without being too sweet, with a bit of grain underneath, and finishing a bit hoppy. Medium bodied. Tasty.

uckelman (813) - Durham, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2016
Pours apricot-copper, clear. Some light tan head, quickly reduces to a ring. Spicy aroma. Medium sweet. Medium-light body.

blackradioboy (219) - SCOTLAND - MAY 7, 2016
Bottle from Coop. Reduced to £1.49 for some reason. (Over-stock?) This is ok. It's slightly sharp. But overall, punches well above its' weight for a 3.7%. Worth a go. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mjp12 (1918) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2016
Tasted nut aroma, looks good from the bottle, clear copper, with a head that keeps going. Light hop finish. A decent bottled session bitter

Svesse (8682) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JAN 24, 2016
(Cask at Craft Beer Co Clerkenwell, 27 Nov 2015) Brownish amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Malty, fruity nose with notes of apricots, orange and toast. Malty, fruity taste with orange, toast, apricots, caramel and a balanced, slightly earthy, bitterness. Light body, with a touch of sweetness. Tasty and well balanced bitter. Quite nice.

mike_77 (6876) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - JAN 22, 2016
Light brown colour. Aroma and flavour are strong in maltiness. Quite toasty with a light dry hoppy finish.

BlackHaddock (7514) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2015
500ml bottle from my local Morrison’s Supermarket and drank at home during an English tasting session with myself on 31st Dec 2015. Poured into a UK pint sleeve it looked fine, a decent amber/copper coloured beer with a creamy head in colour and texture. Malts lead the way with a definite caramel and toffee feel to the nose and taste, not overly sweet though, nicely balanced with the malt content shading the hops.

mr_h (5718) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - OCT 10, 2015
500ml bottle at home, from Morrisons, Ayr, nutty, toasted malt aroma, amber, brown with a negligible head, nutty, some toffee, balanced by a bitter hop finish.
