500ml bottle. Aroma of toffee and biscuit. Colour strong gold. Head small and white. Taste is vanilla, with some delicate hops and light bitterness. Finish is short and malty. Very nice.

dość specyficzne piwo jak dla mnie. W smaku jest dobrze, aromaty cytrusowo-chmielowe są bardzo intensywne, lecz o pianie tego nie można powiedzieć. Wielkości zaledwie palca, a i tak szybko znika że jej się prawie nie zauważa. Miałem wrażenie jakby było lekko mętnawe. Wytrawny i dłógi finisz. StuffWine (167) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 25, 2012
Poured a honey amber hue with a head that took much encouragement but formed up nicely, creamy of very slight off white, reasonably lasting. Aroma a delightful whack of caramel malts with slight touch of honey and perhaps grassy/floral hints. Taste of a classic enlish bitter mith a mix of orange rind and honey coming through niecly, followed by a mild bitter finish that sticks around. Palate let this beer down, was thin and a little too oily with hardly any carbonation (intended?). Overall, a nice beer that actually gives the full impression of Britishness!.

Hazy light brown /orange, thin head is gone too fast. Citrus-fruity aroma has also peach, malt under this. Medium body and oily feel, soft carbonation, dry and bitter, finish long and quite bitter, malting more evident in flavor than in aroma, earthy notes, nuts, bread. Not bad, fruity fresh and easy to drink. thb (829) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 15, 2012
Might be an older bottle over here in Canada. Pours deep gold/amber with thin white bubbles. Aroma is quite malty (which leads me to believe it might not be fresh, given the description). Biscuit and honey. Gentle floral/citrus hops. Sweetness overwhelms balance.

500 ml bottle poured into a Pint glass
App-----amber colour with a white head (1,5 finger) not lasting
Aroma------ malt, citron and wet herbs
Taste------ starts with a mix of light citrus and bitterness, bitterness lasting for a good while in a dry finish (for an English ale)
Mouthfeel-----& medium body & carbonation, great balance in mouth with a nice dry finish
Overall------ balanced and classical but the dry touch at the end adds a little innovation for an English ale

Dark amber with a short lived small head. Light fruity scent. Flavour starts with a bit of roughness and then moves on to a fruitiness matching the aroma. Seems somewhat oxidized. bartlebier (3982) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - NOV 16, 2012
500ml bottle Bierpost. - One of the best thirst quenchers under 4.5% I’ve had. Light, yet with quality biscuit malts (some caramel) in the back and a very pleasant Fuggle/Willamette hop aroma, prominent citrus/orange. Light mouthfeel, watery - for once, in a good way. Almost like fermented Lady Grey hop tea - could easily make this my session beer for the coming spring or just when thirsty and not in a Pilsy mood (= often).

500ml bottle. Light amber with a white head. Quite a dull aroma of grain and old hops. The taste is thankfully an improvement. There’s some nicely balanced orangey notes and a resinous consistency that make it quite refreshing. Nothing exceptional but quite a nice bitter once you get past the aroma.

Gyllengul öl med lätt vitt skum. Malt och skorpor i doften. Lätt maltighet, hö och en antydan av citrus och karamell.
