Copper colour with a big frothy white head. Medium to low carbonation. Hop, fruit and malt aroma. Hops and malt in the flavour. Nice well balanced bitterness with a smooth finish.

JamieFerdinand (163) - Hove, East Sussex, ENGLAND - JUL 14, 2010
Draught at Atlantic House Hotel, Polzeath - 5/7/10. Thin head. Sweet honey taste but not cloying. Some straw in the nose but the main aroma is honey unsurprisingly.

3.2
will1 (140) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2010
Bottled from Aldi. Quite lively carbonation, soft head and quite a syrupy palate. Quite fragrant and fruity for a bitter. Honey aroma and flavour quite apparent. Not too heavily hopped. Refreshing.

2.3
Beth101 (531) - West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2010
bottle from Waitrose. Aroma of malt honey and apricots. Copper colour with a very thin off white head. Pleasant mix of malt and hops. Sweet with a bitter aftertaste. A bit flat

3.2
evergreen0199 (3323) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2010
Bottle from Waitrose, Northwood. A deep amber coloured pour with a slight white head. Malty, hoppy aroma. Tastes crisp and refreshing, slightly sweet, hint of honey, malty, slight bitterness. Quite pleasant and very easy drinking. A good beer to introduce my teenage nephew to beer.

2.5
DruncanVeasey (8225) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2010
Fresh on, Driftwood Spars Hotel, Trevaunance Cove, Cornwall. Copper slicked with white. Nothing but sulphur aroma. Watery and hopless with hints of berries, tea, astringency and wood shavings. Dismal.

3.5
sm89walt (2064) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 23, 2010
Bottle. Poured a light, coppery amber with a small frothy, lasting white head with good lacing. Sweet notes of caramel and a delicate honey tone with a herbal hoppiness on the nose. Flavours of caramel/toffee, subtle honey notes and a pleasant, subdued hoppy bitterness. Great on the palate, light to medium carbonation and really quite crisp. Fantastic conditioning.

2.4
BeerViking (4712) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2010
50cl bottle, pours a tan/amber with not much head. Some toffee sweetness on the nose, maybe a little orange and honeydew melon, and a little floral hop. Quite sweet on the palate with slightly drier finish that has a bit of pine and ginger coming through, its still sweetish in the aftertaste though, which makes it less refreshing than it might otherwise be.

April 2008. Smooth ale with a tart hoppy bitterness. Very faint honey on the finish. Well joined up.
