500ml Bottle This is my long term favourite beer. It is just sublime. Its only fault is the sometimes spot on, sometimes so so carbonation from Skinners. If they could sort that out it would be perfect!! Aroma, toffee malt and hopes with a citrus zesty note. Appearance is dark amber with as mentioned an unreliable head. Get a good bottle and the head will be thick and creamy to the bottom of the glass. Taste is a malty biscuitness and hop developing into toffee and lastly a orange fruitiness and then a bitter finish.. theres something else in there that i cant quite make out too - theres a lot going on in there- but its all good!!!

thb (825) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 10, 2012
Pours a clear bubbly burnt orange with lots of bubbly head that lasts pretty well. Gentle Caramel/fruity malts plus floral hops. How english. Taste is similar. Gentle bitterness from start to finish. Drying. Quite bubbly. Very much to style. Would like a little more sweetness.

DuffMan (10070) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 17, 2012
Bottle, shared with Parksy. Medium amber with a pretty decent white head. Slightly toasty with marmalade hops stepping lightly across the palate. Decent light session ale.

Gerbeer (3534) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 1, 2012
500 ml bottle from 16th St. Pours and orange amber with almost no head. Aromas of cereal and toffee with a bit of hops. Initial malt flavor, followed by cereal, light citrus and hops. Nice enough to have another.

BlackHaddock (6980) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2012
500ml bottle (best before 28 July 2012) poured into an Abbot Ale glass tankard on 9th May 2012. Light to mid brown in body colour, clear and clean: on top an off-white crown of foaming bubbles. Good malty nose and taste: molasses and malt biscuits stuck together by a mildly hop presence. Almost as good as the cask version: a fine blend of flavours and very, very drinkable.

VertBaconStrips (2380) - Blerkablerka, VENEZUELA - MAY 6, 2012
Tired. And drinking a boring beer to boot. Deep amber with an ok sized foamy white cap. Dull grains and a light grass feature, decent fruit on the slightest of the tropical side, thats about it for aroma. The taste is plain as well with a notable spice and dryness, grains, a weak fruit, light toast. Short finish. Meh meh.

500ml brown bottle. Gold pour, clear, big white cap, light lacing. Light caramel nose. Taste has mild grainy malts, caramel, light grassy and citrusy orange peel-ish hops. Light body with average carbonation. Overall a pleasant and drinkable brew with decent hops notes for the style.

reebtogi (6149) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 22, 2012
500ml bottle pours a pale amber color with a finger of white head that retains quite well and reveals some thin lacing on the glass. Aromas of caramel, light fruit and floral hops accompany this ale. Taste is malty sweet at first with some fruit and builds to a pleasant citrus hop bitterness. Body is quite full considering the low ABV and carbonation is decent. Overall, an enjoyable bitter.
