john44 (2608) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2017
Bottle. Golden in colour. Sweet Malty; caramel, toffee, toasted malts. Quite Fruity (apple, citrus-orange). Some, but little, hops. Sweet throughout. Bitter-sweet finish ending dry. A bit disappointing! (2014-10-13)

ogivlado (7539) - Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 30, 2016
Bottled 500ml. -from Vrutak Zagreb. Darker golden coloured, minimal white head, mild caramel nose. Sweet malty, caramel, herbal hops, mild fruity and again notes of caramel in the finish. Drinkable but thin. "Just to brew something" beer.

vinivini (1694) - BELARUS - NOV 11, 2016
Pale amber, medium white head clutching at glassware walls. Thick lacing after the froth has broken down. Malty aroma. Candy, caramel, Fruity esters, a minimal phenolic note. Light to medium body. The flavour is malty as well. Caramel, candy, esters. Floral hops deliver light bitterness. Hoppy finish & aftertaste. Generally not my model of the style still enjoyable enough.

I_LUV_BEER (223) - - NOV 8, 2016
Served in a stemmed tulip from a 500ml bottle. Pours deep golden amber colour with a thick off-white head, leaving nice lacing in the glass. Aroma is caramel, grass, biscuity notes. Taste is caramel, grass, slightly nutty, bitter-sweet with a subtle bitter finish. Medium body with medium carbonation. Very solid, nicely balanced, enjoyable and moreish brew!

explosivedog (659) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 2, 2016
500ml bottle. Pours gold with a thin, quickly disappearing head. A dry spicy aroma, with the flavour mostly bitter and a bit muddy. This is one of the most disappointing bottled ales, especially considering the exceptional quality of the cask version.

beeebon (429) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2016
From bottle, pours copper gold in colour with minimal head which doesn’t last. Aroma of fruit cake, slight lemon zest, grass and a bit of a metalic caramel whiff. Taste is quite lightly sweet and soapy bitter. Noticable artificial carbonation and quite watery. Overall very average supermarket bitter.
