Ktwse (5458) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2017
Pours clear copper with low off-white head. Aroma of nuts, citrus, toffee, malt. Taste is initial nutty sweet followed by a mellow and roasty bitter finish. Light and smooth body with average carbonation.

Scopey (15704) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2016
Bottle (lot no 032, BBE 06.2017, 4.1%) from Old Chimney. It pours hazy amber with an orange hue and medium beige head. The aroma is bitter - sweet, rich wood, old leather sofa, caramel, toasted nut and a touch of orange marmalade. The taste is bitter, wood, twig, earth, dirt, leather, light spice and orange peel with a dry, earthy finish. Medium body and average carbonation. Decent enough bitter, but no game changer.

BlackHaddock (7690) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2015
500ml bottle conditioned: Lot 841, BBE 01 2016. Obtained from the brewery on a visit early 2015: shared with no body, at home on first of 07 2015. Poured into an Abbot Ale badged UK glass pint tankard. Slight haze to the dark amber body with a terracotta brush stroke of orange, the head an off-white cloud of bubbles. Malty start, middle and finish with toffee apple like aromas and flavour, yet not overly sweet. Carbonation a little high for my palate, but normal for the regular ’fizzy’ type guys.

prawlie (1675) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2014
Amber with short-lived head. Creamy, malty bitter. Good English bitter overall, I’d happily have it again.

jmgreenuk (9990) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - NOV 30, 2013
Bottle from the brewery. Poured a hazy medium amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is a little fruity lemon malt and weak hops. The flavour is medium to weak bitter with a zesty malt palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Very drinkable.

EdKing (2648) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2012
Bottle from Old Chimneys. Pours touch hazy orange amber, with thin white head. Nose is husky grain, cereal, malty. Taste is very light, cereal husky, touch of barley grain, touch of caramel or candy sweetness and slight touch of bitter. Very mild bitter and body is light. Finish has that husky grain flavour again from the malt.

Thanks joes for sharing. I don’t really like the low alcohol English beers. Not very bad, but it’s lacking in body, like most of these.
