3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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 you’ve 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 hasn’t the body of a lot of British bitters, but it has character in spadefuls.
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2017 bottle at home bought from local supermarket. ha vent had this for awhile now so wanted to give it a go. I guess I've been spoilt this is just isn't very hoppy or great to drink. paigntonpete (2) - Paignton, Devon, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2017 does not count
My Perfect summer ale. Strong enough flavour to withstand being chilled. Flavour lasts right to the last drop, very moreish ale from a quality brewery. Bijl (770) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 23, 2017
Goudgeel/licht koper, witte schuimkraag, helder en redelijk wat koolzuur.
Aroma: Moutig/granig, iets Citrus, heel licht karamel en licht spicy hops.
Smaak: Een zoetje in begin met wat fruitigheid, wat moutig en lichtere graan, redelijk spicy en iets bite van citroenschil en een prima bitter op het einde maar niet veel hop smaak.
Medium body, makkelijk drinkbaar, voldoende koolzuur en een vrij bitter droge afdronk. Beese (3064) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2017
500ml bottle from M&S, Watford. A while since I've had a bottle of this... very wet grass aroma, kinda musky. This isn't a damning criticism, but it isn't exactly an overwhelmingly nice beer. miniash891989 (137) - - AUG 4, 2017
Bottle, brought from Marks and Spencer. Quite a musky malt aroma with a copper appearance. Subtle citrus and tart palate that falls into a bitter finish.

Barwa bursztynowa. Piana srednia drobnopechezykowa wolno opadajaca. Aromat slaby slodowy .Smak plaski z lekka goryczka bardzo wodnisty. Dosc wysokie nasycenie. Piwo raczej slabe bez ciala. Nie polecam. PanMarek (462) - 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.

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. john44 (3331) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2017
