Its rich amber colour and superb fruity aromas are complemented by a delicious blend of malty yastes. Toffee and malt combine with bitterness on the back of the tongue to give a balanced sweetness. This is followed by a refreshingly dry finish.

Cette english ale prsente une belle robe ambre transparente surmonte dune fine mousse. Au nez, on dcle des armes de prune. En bouche, les saveurs maltes et les armes fruits squilibrent bien. Son corps lger laisse les saveurs grilles sexprimer pleinement. Le toffee contrebalance lamertume ainsi la dgustation se termine sur une note sche. Mlant saveurs maltes et amertume, cette ale se rvle trs facile boire et rafrachissante.

seymour (1957) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - JUN 29, 2016
Poured from clear pint bottle into a nonic pub glass, a crystal-clear orange amber colour with thin but persistent beige foam. Mild caramelly malt flavour plus simple sugar which coaxed extra fruity esters from this historic Morlands ale yeast. Subtle balance of Challenger and Goldings hops. Slight mineral water and tea-like tannin essence. Moderate carbonation, light body, a bit thin, but to be expected at this low-gravity/low alcohol point. Tame, easy drinking, refreshing, albeit with some light metallic and oxidation faults. Im sure the fresh cask version is better, but this is an enjoyable and authentic English bitter.

Nevalainen (692) - FINLAND - NOV 20, 2015
A can, 0,5l, 5%. Bought from a lokal supermarket on Lanzarote. The color is clear amber with stable off-white head. Fruity and hoppy aroma. Taste is very mild with hoppy notes. Lightly bitter finish. Smooth to drink, but Im missing a bit more taste/alcohol in it. But anyway, enjoyable beer.

Rhombic (129) - SPAIN - NOV 15, 2015
Pours clear reddish amber with a small white head, mostly diminishing. Crisp hoppy aroma, grassy, like that of a strong pilsener. Flavour is light hoppy with more malt coming in through the finish. Refreshing feel. Carbonation is medium to high, texture is thin oily, body is medium with a clear hoppy finish, on the long side.
