500 ml Bottle, cold. Pours amber with a dense white head. I get Garibaldi biscuits, and a lovely balance of malty flavour with hop bitterness; Sometimes you wish a "balanced" beer would committ itself, but with this stuff, it feels more like co-operation than compromise. Really nice beer, but I wouldn’t call it a "Strong Ale"

The local off license sells this out of date. Three bottles for £1. An absolute bargain although I feel that I just constantly poo foam all of the time. Not a recommended session beer. Biscuity tones (more an Oreo than a custard cream).

Bottle from B&M, Team Valley, Gateshead. A golden beer with a toffee, malty and caramel flavour followed by a slight floral hoppy bitter-sweet finish. Ok.

Served in a snifter from a 500ml bottle. Pours clear amber with a white head. Aroma is caramel malts with bready notes. Taste is bitter-sweet, predominantly malty with notes of caramel and biscuit, with a short soft bitter and hoppy finish. Medium body with medium carbonation. Very drinkable, refreshing and enjoyable. Nice one.

Lovely stuff. Poured into ceramic stein as outdoors . Light light tasting. Refreshing lemon slice aroma and in mouth. Creamy pine in there too. So easily sunk. Did not drink like 5.1%. Would be great for session

Butelka. Zlota barwa. Piana biala mala. W aromacie orzechowe nuty. Owoce. Wodniste. W smaku plytkie o goryczkowym finiszu. Nic wielkiego.

Bottle from M&S Stratford and drunk at home. Clear copper amber colour with lasting ivory head. Malty pasteurised aroma. Some fruity malt flavour later on . Not much hop. Just the pasteurisation doesn’t help. Gets better later but still not great. Don’t pasteurise beer please.

Don’t know if it’s a English strong ale more an e.s.b thin head floral hints some stone fruit bitter hoppy finish

Sharezie from Rory Duncan watching rugby World Cup. Malty ale with brown ale overtones. Hopping to balance but overall sweet.

hohops (1157) - Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2015
Appearance is copper, hardly any head. Aroma- toffee and caramel, raisin hints, malty, brown sugar. Taste- brown bread, lots of caramel and treacle, brown sugar, yeast, malty finish. Very nice.
