Bottle from Morrisons. A nicely balanced and fairly robust ale with a nice apple tang from the Bramling Cross hops. Some fizz, but not too aggressive, and the barley sugar taste of the pasteurising is not as noticeable as in some other bottled English ales. An OK drink. Buttery and fairly pleasant.

Bottle from Tesco. Clear copper in colour with a white head that quickly subsides. Perfume hop aroma. Good balance of malt and hops on the tongue and a bitter finish. Not a bad effort but nothing exciting. Bullit (4633) - Burgos, SPAIN - NOV 29, 2008
Amber colour, off-white head. Aroma has some grassy hops, and the flavour some caramel malts. Just the average bitter. jfb (6256) - GERMANY - NOV 20, 2008
(bottle) pours a clear amber colour with a small, foamy white head. refreshing aroma of fruity hop spices, orange and lychee, and caramel. same flavour with light grainy pale malts. smooth carbonation, medium body, bitter finish. JorisPPattyn (9981) - Ursel, BELGIUM - NOV 17, 2008
Very good hops nose –bit like USA hops, as well as some caramel. Nice hops in the taste, but this time clearly UK hops. Clear, crisp palate, the bitterness not fading away. Very nice golden bitter.

Bottle, Morrisons, West Kirby. Dark amber with a thin dissipating head. Aroma was caramel and hops with a similar theme continuing into the flavour with some light fruit and a dose of maltiness getting invoived too. All quite inoffensive and drinkable. jercraigs (10365) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 30, 2008
2008-09-28. Golden amber body with a modest fluffy white head. Pleasant aroma, mild interesting fruit I can’t describe over malt. (6+) Flavour is similar, modest fruit over mild sweet malt base. Light balancing bitterness. Light toffee rises in the finish as it warms, with just a glimpse of what may be oxidation? Average palate suits the beer with appropriate carbonation. Pleasant.

bbf sep 08 (that’s now!) clear golden, nice offwhite head.
aroma is aged beer, dark fruits, much heavier than i had expected, perhaps the aging has given it some dark flavor charactes.
flavor : dark fruits, sweet stuff, slightly roasted stuff, intersting bitterness, quite good, sort of leaning towards less agressive belgian brews. it’s nice, but caught me totally off guard. nice beer, but akwardly straddeling betw. belgian and english styles (imho).

clear orange/gold, no lacing, small whtie head. caramel malt aroma. light and crisp palate with a good amount of carbonation. moderately dry finish. hoppy with notes of lemon and bready malts. thebeertourist (5189) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 8, 2008
Bottle. Hazy amber. Fruity fudge aroma. Quite bitter, fruity hops, some fudge. Uncomplicated, but enjoyable.
