3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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"

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. I_LUV_BEER (231) - - MAY 16, 2016
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. shoestring (401) - larkhall, SCOTLAND - APR 15, 2016
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 MarcinG (864) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2016
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. redders1974 (1461) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2015
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 Godfather50 (238) - SCOTLAND - SEP 25, 2015
Sharezie from Rory Duncan watching rugby World Cup. Malty ale with brown ale overtones. Hopping to balance but overall sweet. hohops (997) - 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. kjoannak (37) - - JUL 12, 2015
