Leighton (20529) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2009
Growler. Pours a nice, light amber-red hue with a fine, white head. Nose is hoppy with some malt undertones. Flavor is decently rich with nice character of lightly roasted malts and a kick of hops on the tail. Crisp, bittersweet finish. Quite tasty.

fiulijn (20218) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 1, 2012
Draught at Moeder Lambic, Fontainas
Hazy dark amber color, with big creamy head. Very nice malt and hop aroma, toffee, toasty hop resins, biscuits; later, light feety yeast. The body is weak and the mouthfeel dry, with a very nice flavor of toffee, cookies and roasted nuts. The final is bitter and long, with some hop resins; possibly the bitterness is just too high. At this low ABV, pleasant.

Bottle at the Sussex Arms, Twickenham Green - 30/09/12. Pours a hazy amber brown with a few floaty bits. Big caramel malt dominated nose, hops and fruity tones. Taste follows exactly. Medium bodied with a little spritzy carbonation.

harrisoni (17994) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2009
Bottle from Utobeer. As a British ale drinker, this is really interesting and exciting. A best bitter strength beer made for quaffing, but in a suprisingly small bottle. Looks beautiful. Mahogany, lasting thick beige head. Spicy hop aroma, bit of ginger to go with the grapefruit. Yep. Just as I feared an unbalanced best bitter. You just cant stick a load of floral and spicy hops over a beer without the malt backbone to keep it in balance. Yes the aroma is glorious, but its just got no middle and then sweet toffee and stinging harsh hop on finish. Where Thornbridge Lord Marples shows how to do this style of beer well, this doesnt which is a great shame as it could be so much better. Yes the hops are fun. I mean really fun. But the rest just falls away and the finish is too metallic.

Bottle. Nice head with good duration. Color is amber. Aroma and taste are rich caramel, toffee, malt, hops and fruits. Probably a bit old, since hops havefaded a bit.
