mezr (126) - California, USA - SEP 8, 2016
Poured from a bottle into an English pint. The color is a stunning, clear copper with a tight, tan head that nicely laces the glass. Malty aroma of caramel, medium body and average carbonation. Moderately bitter with a lingering finish. Very satisfying.

alexmate (173) - South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2016
Appearance: Amber\copper colour with good lacing. Nose: some creamy vomit notes, caramel, malt and yeast. Taste: semi-sweet with some caramel, yeast, hops, roasted malt and a bit of bitterness on the aftertaste. Fairly mediocre, but a good session ale and often readily available on draught. Price Paid: around £2.

jamestulloch (4058) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 30, 2016
Bottle. Clear golden/amber body with a thin white head. Steady carbonation. Thin white head. Good lacing. Aroma of earth, biscuit, wax and dried leaves. Flavour of lightly roasted malt, grass and biscuit. Thin to medium body with a light, oily texture. Well balanced and easy to drink.

sarauckelman (532) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2016
Dark amber with scummy head. Aroma of stale popcorn/puffed wheat cereal. Short-bodied and grainy. Smooth.

sinfull (1633) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUL 12, 2016
Amber color . Big , white head. Aroma of malt , fruits, skunk and minerals. Malty taste with distinguished bitterness at the end. English hops are notable . Decent beer.

FearBeoir (2) - - JUN 26, 2016 does not count
Light but attractive hop aroma . Attractive amber colour and a good robust foam . Taste is clean with a nice amount of bitterness and hoppiness , the malt element is equally clean but not as layered as I had hoped for (reading the label) Still, at just over 4% ABV its very pleasant -would love to try the cask!

3.2
ryecatcher (1433) - Bridgeport, Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 5, 2016
500mL bottle. Pours an ever so slightly hazy, deep golden color, big rocky white head with unbelievable retention and lace. Nose is bready malt, minerals, faint skunk (which kind of fades as it opens up) Mouth is medium bodied, malt forward, mild sweetness with a decent balancing bitterness, grass, malt, toast. Not the best bitter I’ve had, but decent. I’d prefer to have this in Blighty, from a cask, which is likely a completely different experience.

3.9
ekstedt (6708) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 18, 2016
Bottle (50 cl) from Systembolaget. Clear amber, medium white head. Bready malt, fruity notes, floral hops. Medium bodied, medium carbonation. Semi dry to dry, medium bitterness.

3.6
Pyobon (1392) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 15, 2016
(Bottle) Pours slightly hazy golden amber with big dense white head. Pleasant subtle fresh hoppy aroma - hints of grass, tea, seaweed and citrus. Light bodied with plentiful pleasant carbonation. Well balanced taste with soft malt at the start and hops coming in over the top. The cask version of this was one of my favorite beers when I lived in England. Don’t think I tried the bottled version. Very drinkable.

3.7
cjennings1987 (47) - harwich, Essex, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2016
Bottle bought from the local coop. What you would expect from a commercial bottled beer. Simple taste that fails to stand out. Very drinkable though and can imagine drinking a few bottles quite easily.
