Bottle from local Sainsbury in Canterbury. Dry and crispy bitter with notes of citrus. Easy drinkable. Not bad.

KoNrRiI (1624) - Århus, DENMARK - JUL 19, 2015
0.5 bottle. Clear, copper color and a small, white, rapidly disappearing head. Aroma of hops, caramel, spices, coriander, and fruits. Taste of caramel, some grains, and delicate spices. Light body, thin texture, and soft carbonation. Finish is short and watery like the rest. Overall the beer does not deliver the difference promised, although the packaging is very convincing.

Pours dark amber, frothy head develops due to quite high carbonation. Nose has hops, coconut, a metallic hint, touch of staleness. Taste is okay; non descript hops with a little sweet biscuit. Short slightly bitter finish with a metallic hint. Watery palate. I’m afraid I didn’t taste the difference.

AWS9 (742) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 25, 2015
Bottle. Sweet, sugary caramel. Mild malt, a touch of cereal and fruit. Mild buttery bitter finish (i.e. a typical flat bitter finish). The sweetness gets a bit much by the end, but certainly drinkable. Frankly expected worse from Sainsburys!

tomer (3743) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - NOV 15, 2014
Bottle, thanks Roe, clear lightish copper colour, medium stable frothy head, aroma of herbs and caramel with a touch of honey, flavour of caramel and a cake maltiness with an empathic herbal bitterness. Nice session bitter.

2.5
sarauckelman (550) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2014
Clear amber with long-lasting head. Aroma of grains with a bit of a skunkiness underneath. Round palate which leaves a bit of stickiness in the mouth and a hint of bitterness. No particular flavor jumps out. It’s a fine beer.
