COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled, pasteurised;
It’s 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.

PlainsDrifter (96) - Adelphi, Maryland, USA - MAY 24, 2010
This is not a good beer. Pours amber, light white head. Skunky, metallic aroma, bitter finish. I will not get this beer again, unless I forget how bad it is.

Bottle from Lidl drunk at home. Pleasant golden amber, slightly bready yeast, adequate mouth feel, moderately bitter finish. A competent but too ordinary craft beer.

WaddlingPlatypus (186) - Durham, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2016
500ml bottle at Purecraft Bar, Birmingham. Amber with a fine white head. Aroma of freshly burnt Christmas pudding and rich brandy-soaked fruits. Golden flavours of biscuit and butter.

alexmate (286) - South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2017 Fairly pleasant. Has a weird reddish hue to it, Taste and aroma of toffee, malt, caramel and a classic English bitter hop aftertaste. Better than many other macro ales.

JulienLaforgue (3) - FRANCE - JUL 26, 2016 does not count
Cette english ale présente une belle robe ambrée transparente surmontée d’une fine mousse. Au nez, on décèle des arômes de prune. En bouche, les saveurs maltées et les arômes fruités s’équilibrent bien. Son corps léger laisse les saveurs grillées s’exprimer pleinement. Le toffee contrebalance l’amertume ainsi la dégustation se termine sur une note sèche. Mêlant saveurs maltées et amertume, cette ale se révèle très facile à boire et rafraîchissante.

seymour (2120) - 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. I’m sure the fresh cask version is better, but this is an enjoyable and authentic English bitter.

50 cl bottle. Pours a clear amber with minimal white head. Aroma of toffee and hops. Taste is sweet initially and then a little bitter. Palate is light and dry. Overall good beer.

Vermelha, límpida. Espuma abundante de média duração. Aroma adocicado, levemente metálico. Sabor amargo equilibrado, com notas de caramelo e fortes notas metálicas. Retrogosto amargo e metálico.

2.2
