Bread, toffee and red fruity impact to the flavour character. Slightly jam-like. Dry, bittersweet finish. Smooth. Decent version of the style (Newton Abbot 27.04.2017).

Quack-Duck (9392) - Down South, GERMANY - AUG 31, 2011
bottle from Trumps, Sidmouth. Golden colour, lovely hop aroma. Malty base, the hop profile is brilliant: fresh, slightly resiny with a citrusy touch. Smooth palate. Anytime again.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2011
Bottle from some random offy in Devon, shared with our Mes. Slightly murky orange brown, the colour of a slug, big bubbled off white head. fairly standards stuff, some malts, some hops, some bitterness. Uneventful but certaiily drinkable. Bit thin all round but not bad.

berkshirejohn (6410) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2011
50cl bottle from Moor & More Beer, Plymouth. Golden amber with a loose white head; aroma of leafy hops and damp straw; slightly sour fruit taste - with apples and pears, and a farmyard fee; the finish is fresh with crisp apples and is also slightly salty. An OK bitter.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2010
A Mes rate. Bottle from some random offy in Devon thanks to our Weasel.
Cleanish orange amber colour with a thin white head. Reasonable bitterness, faint citric character, a fair bit of wet cardboard spoils it rather too much. Faint metallic notes too. Basic and uneventful.

harrisoni (18230) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2010
500ml bottle that was a present from someone and I should have drunk ages ago, but never got around to it. Rich deep amber with lasting beige head. Its kept very well considering its over a year old and the malts are good, some decent English hops on the end. A very passable bitter. I rather like it and I bet it would be good on handpull fresh.
