SarkyNorthener (4343) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, - JAN 29, 2013
Bottle. Amber beer medium head. Toffee aroma. Taste is sweet toffee with some malts. Weak on the palate. Easy to drink just dull.

jjsint (2771) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2017
Cask at the Rock, Cambridge. Amberish brown with very little head. Pleasant if very muted biscuit aroma with a hint of cinnamon toast. Taste is sourish sweet, with a woody tang near the end of the sip. Medium body, a bit on the oily side. It tastes stronger than 2.8%, although its a fairly standard bitter otherwise.

Tastes ok but watery. Little aroma or palate. Looks nice enough, probably wont have again.

DanielBrown (4457) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2016
Bottle as a lovely gift. Initial and post-initial impressions were: this is poor. Have to say though, the last few mouthfuls were a marked improvement. When warm, this took on a smoked edge, masking the cereal somewhat.

canddw (100) - - MAR 25, 2016
Bottle. Clear deep amber beer with white frothy head. Stale nose of hops and peppermint. Thin watery taste with cream, pepper and metal. No finish, just a residual staleness. Truly rubbish.

deanso (9862) - Chiang Mai, THAILAND - DEC 7, 2015
50cl bottle from Kellys Expats shop. Thick creamy white head. Clear light amber pour. Subtle bitterness.

uckelman (741) - Durham, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2015
Pours clear amber, some off white head. Aroma is sweet and musty. Rather sweet and vegetal. Heavier than usual body for an English bitter. This is ok for a low-alcohol beer, but really suffers from not having a bit more fermentation.

sarauckelman (492) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2015
Dark amber with thin white head. Crisp, fresh aroma with a bit of citrus. Quite sweet and sticky, and yet also very hoppy/vegetal. Lacks the usual mineral notes of an English ale.

Cunningham (7470) - Halden, NORWAY - MAR 15, 2015
Clear nutty golden color with a fine white head. Grainy and caramel malty aroma. Ok body for an 2,8% beer. Moderate sweet and an ok bitterness. Average carbonation. Caramel malty, grainy and herbal flavor. Quite nice bitter.
[Bottle from an Off License at London Bridge in London, England]
