Bottle, 500ml obtained by Sandra from a B&M, probably in Banbury, Oxon drunk at the Jamboree Barbecue. Gold with white head. There is a boiled caramel hint to this, some cereal then an earthy hopped note. Some bitterness, some leafy notes. It’s okay. john44 (3544) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2017

330ml bottle from b&m. Pours clear dark amber with a this chi, rocky off-white head. Aromas of toffee, nuts, light raisins. Taste is mineral, iron, toffee, more nuts. Chalky finish. Not bad. Mr_Pink_152 (6035) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2015
500ml bottle from b&m. Colour Amber with a thick white head. Nutty caramel aroma. Taste is a touch sweet BlackHaddock (8141) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2015
Live rate on 16th June 2015 while cooking a minced beef chilli after cutting the lawns and walking the dog: this is my reward to myself. Tangerine orange body, not quite fully clear when poured into my Abbot Ale glass tankard. The head is deep and full, off-white blanket of uneven foam which appears to be lasting. Malt lead in both the aroma and taste, semi-sweet initially with toffee and caramel hints, grapefruit flavour mid-sip, with a dry hoppy finish that seems to have a peppery and metallic twang to it. All good apart from the finish: what a shame. Bought from B&M Bargains, so cost cock all but my score is lower because of that metallic like feel in the finish.

Bottle from B&M. Dry and harsh in the old school Northern fashion; the bitterness of hop without aromatic complications or owt fancy; toffee hints, background dried fruit and creamy fig attempts smashed by bitterness. Back of tongue bitter linger. Metallic aroma with more pleasing fudge as it warms. Honey amber with a loose and transient foam. Not loveable.

Bottle from B&M, amber-brown with a medium head, peppery hops and a little toffee malt on the nose. Dry and lightly toasty, with a firm hoppy and burnt bitterness. christhoel (286) - chesterfield, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2015
clear amber with a fruity hop aroma. The taste is similar - apple, citrus and hop flavours swirl together on a smooth palate and a long bitter finish gives you time to enjoy them. A very nice bitter. zacgillbanks (5768) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2015
Bottles from b&m, Team Valley, Gateshead and York Beer & Wine. Golden coloured with burnt toffee and orange marmalade flavours followed by a bitter grapefruit finish. anfractuosity (495) - - APR 13, 2015
Nice ale, good bitterness, maybe a bit of nuttiness coming through from the malts.
