harrisoni (17993) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 3, 2011
Bottle at Chriso Patriks Bday tasting. Clear light briwn. Lasting white head. Not a great aroma. Its a bit infected strong malt and then dies a bit. Bit of malty cake.

sm89walt (2054) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 19, 2011
500ml bottle. Fine, fading loose white head atop a clear, lifeless looking light amber body. Sweet buttery, caramel, bready crumpet aromas & some dryer yeast notes. More buttery toffee tones on the palate with a delicate mid fruit edge and additional boiled sweet undetone. Slightly grassy & toasty in terms of bitterness, though generally a bit on the watery side. Short finish, light to medium body, soft to medium carbonation. Needs to be crisper, brighter & less muddled - though remains drinkable as is.

planky84 (3086) - Lee, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2011
Bottle from Sainsburys. Amber pour, white head. Strange aroma of sour milk with a bit of vanilla and cream which doesnt give any hint towards what the flavours like- ginger, hops and a light bitterness. Bitter finish. Boring stuff.

(Cask at Edgar Wallace, London, 24 Nov 2010) Amber colour with brief, off-white head. Fruity, hoppy nose with orange, dried apricots and floral hops. Fruity, hoppy taste with notes of apricots, floral hops and a light malt character with hints of crystal malt. Rather light body, with balanced sweetness. Refreshing and very drinkable. Quite nice.
