JPC1524 (206) - Devon, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2016
Bottle from Morrisons. Beautiful golden pour with small white head. Not much of an aroma. Sweet and malty with a touch of fruity bitterness to finish. Very easy drinkable, nice enough but very simple.

Light yellow beer with not much head. Standard English bitter fare... light malt, slight fruitiness, mild bitter... drinkable.

Vighals (3988) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - MAR 22, 2016
Lys brun klar med fingerhøyt hvitt skum. Lite lukt, noe karamell. Også lite smak, men den er sødmefull. Typisk engelsk pubale fra tapp. Kort.

Itstasty (99) - East Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2016
Bottle. Golden hue, white head which fizzles out after a minute or so. Loose mouthfeel. Light malty taste with medium bitter finish. Ok sort of beer.
