Jimthechap (2064) - Christchurch, - MAY 12, 2012
Good bitter amber colour with a carpet of white head and plenty of sparkle in the glass. Maris Otter malt dominates the aroma spectrum with some useful mandarin juice and tangelo aromas. Slightly tropical flower scents too, hibiscus perhaps? Plenty of prickly mouthfeel and then just the most succulent citrus sweets. On-going carbonation and and slight grassy bitterness, as if youve picked a piece of grass and sucked some of the juice from the end. This is a good ambassador beer, not just in the style but also for the brewery. It hasnt the body of a lot of British bitters, but it has character in spadefuls.

PanMarek (419) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 24, 2017
Dark, clear amber pour with relatively scant beige foam. Bready malt in the nose with some floral hops and touches of toffee. Medium / light body, little fizz, slightly water body with a bitter finish. The malt dominates the taste more than the nose and the hop flavors are a little subdued.

radassace (264) - SCOTLAND - MAY 20, 2017
500ml bottle. Pours dark gold with a small white head. Nose is biscuit, bread, straw, spice and citrus. Light carbonation, soft mouth feel. Taste is brown bread, biscuit, orange rind, some spicy floral thing and a slight hop resin. Finishes medium dry with a lingering bitterness. Very tasty, and drinkable.

Leighton (20814) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2017
Bottle at home in Hackney - sourced from Ocado. Pours clear gold with a fine, creamy white head. The nose holds a bit of citrus fruits, pale bread, touches of biscuits, lemon rind. Light sweet flavour with more biscuits, hay, tangerine, a little rindy bitterness hints of pine. Light bodied with average carbonation. Clean and balanced in the finish, with more citrus fruits, sun-kissed pale malts, biscuits, some straw, more rind, faint spicy pine. Just an all-around damn drinkable beer.
