Amber ale, helder amber/koper met witte kraag. Aroma van mout, caramel, erg weeig. Smaken dun en waterig, zwak bitter, matig zoet, weeig, caramel, niet bijzonder, iets muffig, biscuit

beeebon (463) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2017
Bottle from home bargains. Pours brown amber colour with minimal off white head which doesn’t last long but leaves some lacing. Aroma is biscuit malt, a touch of caramel and some grassy/vegetable hops also slightly metallic. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter with a somewhat watery mouthfeel. Lingering finish but not overly nice. An ok bitter, better than lager but really nothing special

Almogabar (61) - MARIA DE HUERVA (ZARAGOZA), SPAIN - AUG 1, 2017
Botella de 50 cl adquirida en Lidl. Color ámbar oscuro, perfecto para una cerveza inglesa. Espuma blanca ligera y poco duradera. Aromas prácticamente nulos, notas a malta, grano tostado o pan. Sabor plano, ligeramente a caramelo tostado, nada persistente. Prometía pero no, demasiado floja.

Kita (2175) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JUL 30, 2017
Bottle, 0.50l. Clear deep amber color with thin creamy off-white head and soft visible carbonation. Aroma is grassy, grainy, caramelly and floral. Taste starts with light sweet caramel, following is citrussy, floral, fruity, mild herbal and a bit peppery, mouthfeel is smooth, while finish is mild bitter. Light to medium body, creamy texture and soft carbonation in palate. Better than expected...

AleMan84 (8) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2017 does not count
Nice aroma and color but a disappointing and uninteresting flat bitter taste with a dry finish, drinkable if nothing better is avaliable but not a great bottle conditioned beer no visble yeast either which was odd.

Marko (5759) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 22, 2017
Bottled. Dark amber body. White head. Cooked apples and maltiness in the aroma. Flat taste, dull bitterness, herbal, stale maltiness. Just dull and not worth the money.

corkyrory66 (2071) - BELGIUM - JUL 19, 2017
Bitter de 4,5 %, qui a été relooké depuis la photo de ratebeer. On l’appelait alors parfois la "P"... On y voit maintenant le portrait de George Peard, qui fut head brewer à une certaine époque. Eau de Burton, orge Maris Otter, houblons fuggles et goldings. Mon exemplaire était à 4 mois avant sa date. Couleur ambre moyen, à la clarté nette. Bulles fines, en fontaine centrale, à montée lente. Mousse beige clair, crémeuse, stable à 2 mm. Arômes de très beau malt, caramel, pointe de candi. 1ère bouche souple, à l’entame malt/houblon très plaisante, malt grillé. Arrière-bouche sur une amertume précise, avec du zeste. 2ème à la belle texture, mais les saveurs sont moins précises. Arrière-bouche un peu aqueuse, pointe d’épice. 3ème aux saveurs agréables, mais sans ampleur. Arrière-bouche vague, comme passée en arrière-plan !! Longueur qui fond un peu les saveurs, et on trouve un certain intérêt à la dégustation. Jambes fines, serrées, longues. Levure basique. Alcool inefficace, il semble indifférent aux saveurs. Finale banale. CONCLUSION : bière dont on retient le beau visuel et la belle texture .. Le reste ne fait pas partie du pedigree !!! Par ailleurs, elle permet de prouver magistralement que les meilleurs ingrédients ne font pas d’office une grande bière … bravo pour la démonstration !! (5/4/4/4/8)

500ml bottle. Clear amber with an a moderate white head. Malty aroma, taste is well balanced malt and hops. Not exciting but not bad

Borup (14730) - Albertslund, DENMARK - JUL 11, 2017
50 cl. bottle. An amber coloured beer with a small white head. Aroma and flavour of malt, hops, fruit, caramel and with a bitter finish.
