Bottle at home in Salisbury. Pours perfectly clear gold with a moderate, creamy head. Nose has dry hay, husky grains, dry orange and various stone fruits. Light to medium sweet flavor with melon and peach, some bitter citrus rind and pine, touches of bubblegum. Medium bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Not warming on the finish but does provide some boost, along with further melon, light bread, peach, orange and pine. Nothing wrong here. mcberko (19886) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 23, 2012
12 oz. bottle, pours a clear golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of oranges, sweet caramel, some syrup tones and bready English hops. Flavour of English hops, bready notes, caramel malts, finishing on slightly sweet, very bready English-style hops. Definitely English-styled, but lacking dynamics. A little dull and lifeless, but solid enough. Ratman197 (15636) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - MAY 23, 2013

Bottle shared by b3shine. Pours a clear amber color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor have faded hops, grass, toasted malts, caramel. I am curious as to the age of this. Just seems a bit past its prime. Mild bitterness to the finish. DocLock (11191) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 19, 2015
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours hazy dark straw toward brown with 1-finger, frothy, off-white head. Nose is noble hops, caramel malt, mild oak. Tastes malty, hoppy, with some earthy and oaky notes, and a hoppy British bitter-like finish. GT (10017) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 5, 2013
355mL thanks to BrewtopiaofPJ. Pours a clear amber, deep orange. Medium white foam. Okay to weak retention. Nose is cheesy, sharp lemon verbena, sugary grapefruit candies. Taste is stickier specialty malts, harsher astringency. Tea tannic finish. Showing all my pet peeves for this style. DrSilverworm (10000) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 17, 2013
