From a bottle. Pours a clear dark amber, faint aroma of toffee, mild bitterness with a lingering hops aftertaste, smooth and quite nice.

½ Pint keg @ hostel. Got a voucher for a free drink as welcoming gift. Neat, no great options obviously but hey they had this to tick. Dark amber. Nose is bland stale caramel, paper, cardboard UK malts, old cereal. Taste is stale cardboard UK cereal caramel malts, unpleasant bitter cardboard finish that got quite off-putting overtime.

Great Kentish Ale from the South East of England. This beers celebrates the Battle of Britain. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma: toffee and grassy malts. Flavour has some toffee, butterscotch and woody notes. Lovely faint herbal and grassy tones. I really enjoyed this one.

Clear copper coloured beer with small white head. Aroma is malty, caramel and something bitter. Taste is toasted malts, herbs, nice bittersweet. Easy drinkable descent beer.

Na prvy pohlad pekna farba piva. Vone nevyrazna. A chut prijemna s krasnym horkastym zakoncenim.

Greetings from Bydgoszcz, Poland to all Beer Geeks and Hopheads around the world!

Mishnok (355) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2017
A pretty typical large volume bitter that are ubiquitous at most supermarkets in the UK. It is malty and caramel, nice copper colour with decent lacing. Nothing particularly wrong about, it's just that it's a bit 'meh' ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

guzgorog (899) - FRANCE - AUG 18, 2017
Robe rousse, caramel avec des reflets rouges, limpide, fine mousse blanche de mauvaise tenue. Nez toffee et herbes. Bouche bien balancée entre le malt (caramel, candie, toffee) et le houblon (herbe, terre). Carbo faible, longeur moyenne, corps et alcool faible. Une ale anglaise pas mauvaise...

Još jedna loša lidlova "craft" piva. Ova je posebnija od prijašnjih zato jer ima nekakvu gorčinu u sebi.

OminouSC2 (794) - Mora, SWEDEN - AUG 10, 2017
Copper colored, small white head. Aromas of malt, caramel and slight bitter hints. Bittersweet taste with caramel, malt, bread and slight hops.
