A new favourite of mine. A lovely aroma. A lovely looking pint with a head that stayed all the way down the glass. Taste was wonderful and one of those that I could drink all day. Lovely aftertaste and overall a great beer! I will be stocking up on this mike_77 (7022) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - NOV 10, 2011
Aroma has some sweet tropical fruits. Flavour is sweet and fruity with some passion fruit and orange. It leads to a drier hoppy finish with a sweet citrus edge. johndoughty (5521) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2007
Bottle. Copper coloured and very clear. For some reason it was far more bitter than I had expected. Slightly fruity and reasonably complex with a variety of flavous. Easy to drink and quite interesting. beervis (243) - Taylor’s Country, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2007
Bottle. Hoppy, crisp, fruity aroma, Pours a nice golden copper, thin white head with some lacing. Slightly prickly, light mouthfeel, alcohol and orange peel on the finish. Balanced by a bit of soft malt, but crisp refreshing hoppiness is the dominant character here. Easy drinking with a clean tangy bitterness, rather like an IPA. Good.

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!

Pleasing orangey-amber colour. The aroma is spicy, marmaladey, with a warming fresh bread character. Medium body, toasty malts with a hint of biscuit. The hops are gentle, well-integrated and the marmaladey Bramling Cross note is a breath of fresh English air. Tasty stuff. joe19612 (3020) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2007
Bottle. Pours a dark copper colour, with a thin white head. Malty aroma with a complex fruit in the taste. A easy drinking beer. Well crafted. johninmelb (1127) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2007
Bottle. Liquored orange nose with some sharp apple. Pours copper with a disappearing pale tan head. Flavour is great - an archetypal bitter with just enough distinction to make a classic of the style. Some broad orange hops on the middle back of the tongue balanced with a slightly citric sweetness (contradictory as that may sound). Finish is well-hopped, long, pleasingly bittersweet and refresing. A great beer. JonMoore (2067) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2007
Bottle. Light amber colour with a thick off-white head. Aroma has malt, hops and toffee. Smooth and well balanced with the same elements in the taste department with a pleasant bitterness throughout. This is good bitter.
