500 ml bottle sampled in 2009 as On the Tiles. Golden body with a big, dense off-whiter head. A bit weak aroma of malt, caramel and toast. Flavor is light malty, caramel and moderate bitter. A bit watery body and short aftertaste, Drinkable, but rather boring and uninspired. tampierre (1387) - Pilsen, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 17, 2013

Pleasantly flowery aroma with a little bit of malt sweetness, Flavour is gently bitter with a mild biscuity maltiness. Over all a pleasant but not remarkable beer. zacgillbanks (5180) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JAN 19, 2013
Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. An amber ale with a strong woody and spicy floral fruity flavour and a dry bitter finish. RichTheVillan (7852) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 26, 2012
Cask at Arthur Robertson (JDW); Uninspiring English bitter, brown, feint hops, slight malt , watery texture and taste, why did I buy a full pint of this.

Amber, thin bubbly head, some lacing
Aroma - light fruity pale malts, soft spicy hops, soft yeast
Taste - fruity pale malts, quite spicy hops, pale caramel malts, touch peppery, hint of background honey, touch herbal, slightly aromatic, bit unusual, quite nice
Palate - soft carb, thinnish body, bit oily, spicy bitter. Finish - dry as main flavour with more cereal malts, very lingering bit peppery aromatic dryness
Overall - Quite a spicy beer, more flavour than usual for 3.9%
Cask @ The Willow Walk. Pours medium amber with a tiny white head. The aroma’s pretty standard brown bread with hints of toffee. Not much of a nose, really. The taste is crystal malt, toffee, hints of peppery meadow. Dry finish. Light body. Overall - fine. There’s not much to this. OK, I guess.

, walsall. Amber colour small head that laces well. Aroma is mild malt and hint of hops. Taste is of dry hops a little dry bitterness in aftertaste. Average session bitter.
First tasted this in the Guildford Arms, Edinburgh in February 2000. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear reddish amber in colour with a thin creamy white head. Dusty hops present in the short aroma. Resiny thin mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malts give a digestive biscuit base with marmalade fruit notes evident. Strong quota of hops come through in the dry, resiny, bitter aftertaste. Finish is malty with vinous fruit coming through. An ok session bitter but outclassed by East Street Cream though. hawthorne00 (3951) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 3, 2012
Bottle. Amber with a medium-sized white head. Aroma of lemon and flowers, light biscuit. Sweet with peaches and a little caramel, lemon and a little pepper. Thinnish mouthfeel, a little overcarbonated. Solid bitter finish. A decent bitter in good nick.
