Deep gold/pale amber body, good clarity, sturdy white head.
Nice aroma; sweet biscuity malt, orange citrus hop, quite pungent and zesty with underlying spice and dried fruits.
Full body, nice chewy malt texture, moderate carbonation.
Sweet malts fill the mouth, good citrus fruit flavours, more hints of dried apricot and sultana in the background. Lingering finish, slight phenolic spice and relatively high balancing bitterness.
Well made and tasty bitter. Plenty of flavour and balance to entice. OzarkElmo (329) - Poplar Bluff, Missouri, USA - OCT 30, 2009
From botle. Pours a medium, mostly clear amber with slight off-white head. Definite nose of fruits, honey and caramel malt. Very well done brew, well balanced with hops and malt presence, but neither overbearing. Lacing throughout. A very enjoyable beer with medium body. Not too sweet, not too fruity, not too dry - Just perfectly bitter for my taste. Very surprised at the great taste since this is from bottle and not cask. CHEERS to Thwaites! sfhodense (4788) - Odense NØ, DENMARK - OCT 4, 2009

Bottle Clear, golden body, hardly no head. Aroma of apple. Lightly bitter, lightly sweet flavour. Bit hoppy, but quite weak. Still ok. Maria (10211) - Thisted, DENMARK - AUG 18, 2009
It is dark golden with a creamy head. The aroma has notes of fruit and malt. The flavour has a light sweetness and it’s very smooth and fruity with notes of malt, caramel, fruit and citrus. It is very full-bodied, charming and easy to drink. PorterPounder (8363) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 28, 2009
