Clear dark amber with small white, fading head. Aroma and taste are mostly sweet caramel malts. Good lively carbonation, nice medium body. Jado (805) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - JAN 6, 2012
500 ml bottle. Pours a deep amber with a tight off-white head. Can pick up bread and clove on the nose, but the real action happes after you take a sip. Fruity hops are the first thing you get, but then rich malt comes through. The palate goes on all day. A finely balanced and refined ale. planky84 (3493) - Lee, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2011
Amber pour with a white head. A little citrus, summer fruit and pear aroma. Citrus and pear flavours with a fruity malt bite. Light bitter finish. dogbomb (1257) - ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2011
Pours golden with a nice white froth. Mild hoppy, floral scents with a hint of citrus. Bitter on the tongue, but it’s mild with a slight sweetness. Quite a creamy texture with mild carbonation. Nice long bitter finish. Easily quaffable and quite sessionable. Dervock (1506) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 19, 2011
Bottle - Pours Copper with a big white head. Bread with some sweet cereal malt aroma. Picked up a bit of leather when the head was just poured. Sweet malt up front then a hint of dry hoppiness. medium body, soft and creamy. Really like this.

Bottle. Enjoyable bitter with strong hoppy taste,dry finish and long palate. johnnnniee (4457) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 11, 2011
Brought across the pond and shared by a friend. Pours a bright amber color with a decent off white head. Smells of sweet bready malt, slightly earthy hops, with hints of butterscotch and a touch of skunk. Taste is sweet bready malt with hints of toffee and caramel with earthy English hops and just a hint of butter. This is probably the first beer that I can say the diacytl actually works well in. Medium to light body, moderate level of carbonation with a sweet slick mouthfeel. I quite enjoyed this one, I wish it were a little less elusive in the States.

Clear orange-brown, light beige head, stays.
Faint bready aroma.
Light caramel malts, earthy hops.
Palate is light, watery, carbonated.
Well balanced but palate isn’t great and bit lacking in flavour. ken1 (2202) - DENMARK - OCT 7, 2011
Bottle in London. A pretty good english pale ale. good colour and nice head. A good hobby taste.
