Jonb5 (520) - Greater London, - DEC 12, 2012
Half litre poured into standard pint glass. Auburn colour, clear, 1 finger tanned head, decent retention. Initally aroma was weak but some citrus fruits and notes of Cascade hop came through. Had a bit of farmyard to it, but in a pleasant way. Tasted fruity, had notes of grapefruit, balanced bitterness, finish was long, bitter and wheaty. Medium body, well carbonated, slightly coarse. Pleasant ESB, refreshing decent amount of character.

Served in a tulip from a 500ml bottle. Pours clear brown-red amber colour with a medium light beige head, nice lacing in the glass. Aroma is grass, toffee, herbs and a hint of honey. Taste is caramel, toffee, herbal notes, medium herbal bitterness throughout and in the finish. Medium body with medium carbonation. Very easy to drink and enjoyable. Nice session ale!

Bottles from Sainsburys and B&Ms, Gateshead. Amber coloured with a sweet red fruity and slight burnt toffee flavour with biscuit, sherbet, almond and dried fruit on the finish. Nice.

Poured from a bottle in a long flute glass. Unenticing aroma but perfectly drinkable if bland red ale.

UPDATED: JAN 22, 2017 Karmelki, przyjemne nuty owocowe i opiekane, średnia, krtka goryczka. Dobry balans. Moim zdaniem prawie najlepsze z piw, ktre przewinęły się przez lidlowe promocje.

500ml bottle from Sainsburys. Pours coppery red with dirty grey head. Aroma sightly metallic with walnut, wood shavings and hay. Good bitterness with some gingerbread aftertaste. Can see how this fits with an autumnal feel (clearly sampled this at the wrong time of year!).

Barwa ciemnej miedzi, klarowne. Piana drobna, ciemnokremowa, obfita. Dziurawi się. W aromacie chmiel i czerwone owoce. Przyjemnie , świeżo pachnie. W smaku kwaskowate, goryczkowe. Trochę palonego karmelu i kwaskowatość owocw. Pozostawia przyjemny cierpki, owocowy posmak. Udane piwo.

czlowiekwiadro (763) - POLAND - OCT 21, 2015
zapach przyjemny, ale dość lekki. toffi, karmel, owoce jesienne (dojrzałe gruszki, jabłka, trochę moreli). piana raczej mało obfita, stara się trzymać, ale jej nie idzie. kolor karmelowy/rubinowy, głęboki, klarowny, ładny. w smaku pełne, chlebowe, karmelowe i toffi, okrągłe, słodkawe z bardzo lekko palonymi nutami. goryczka wyraźna, karmelowo ziołowo przyprawowa, z lekkimi nutami tytoniu, ale nie bardzo wysoka. dość krtka. nasycenie raczej wysokie.

Smells like popular bar beer. Very nicely red, nice uneven head too. Caramel is present, watery. Funny, not special. gift from uckelman.

Marek13 (289) - Brzesko, POLAND - OCT 4, 2015
Bottle 05-2016. Aroma of toffee, herbs and strong iron. Beautiful dark red coloured beer, clear. Light tan, two fingered head, reduces to flat. Quite nice lacing. In taste british malts - caramel, toffee, but not very sweet. Earty and herbal aftertaste. Theres also very nice and slightly diacetyl. Full bodied, but refreshing. Medium herbal bitterness, grows during drinking. Carbonation is too strong at beginning, then turns very soft and dissapears. Alcohol isnt sensible. Very nice, sessional beer, but with iron.
