Bottle, well it never actually left. Reminds me of an english bitter, the body was thin simple a bit grainy, not really my style. Hops were just a bittering end, goldings it says not my favorite. I fell asleep before i finished the pint. No loss.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - MAY 22, 2009
Pint bottle. Pours a slightly hazy copper with a lacy offwhite head. The aroma is on the fruity side (canteloupe, green apple, some citrus) with a hefty dose of malty sweetness and caramel. The flavor is caramel, green apple, a little bit of woodiness, and hints of lemon and pine. There’s a gentle bitterness to the finish with a tiny hint of earthy spice. Unadventurous, but quite drinkable.

Pours a three finger cream head that fades slowly, leaving a good lace. Clear amber color. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Sweet malty nose. Flavor has hints of caramel, some bitterness, good session beer. $4.45 for a 500ml bottle from Colonial Spirits Acton, Ma.

demdeac40 (299) - Etowah, North Carolina, USA - APR 7, 2009
Pours a cloudy amber with good carbonation and a beautiful white head. The nose is floral hops with a sweet background. Just a hint of caramel hiding back there. Easy drinking, crisp and clean. Good malty sweetness, mouth filling and full in the mid palate. Finishes crisp and clean with just a slight bitterness.

Pours and looks like an average bitter. It stinks! smells like chicken feed. Nasty cereal aroma. Taste is the same. D-

nick76 (4404) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 25, 2009
The aroma is watery and slightly toasted with diacetyl and phenol elements. here is also grassy hops. The appearance is orange gold with an average head for the style. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall this is decent but has an unpleasant cardboard finish.

not much on the flavor front. the taste feels weak and watery. low on the malt flavor. not good as a session.

thornecb (6186) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 21, 2009
Pours amber into an English pint. Offwhite micro head with good retention leaves spotted sheets as it recedes to coat surface. Sweet pit fruit aromas. Full and bready with caramel and raisins upfront, turning slightly metallic toward the bitter hop finish. Nice flavor for the abv.

3.2
lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 12, 2009
The Welsh get instant points for having a word for beer where the Ws are the vowels. This pours a clear amber orange with a quick off white head that leaves some thin sheety lacing. Very toasted grainy malt aroma, some grassy herbal hops. Taste is a earthy caramel body, grassy hops, lightly bitter. A decent beer.

DrBayern (1140) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - FEB 23, 2009
500 ml. bottle on 2/23/2009 from my brother in law who brought it back from Wales for me. This really is a lovely beer, clear amber with a big off white head that settles slowly leaving a delicate lace that replenishes itself after each swallow. Toasty grain aroma, a faint woodiness, some earthy hops, and a little caramel. Medium body, lightly carbonated, smooth, yet leaving a clean palate. Solid maltiness up front, spicy bitterness comes through quickly to usher in a long dry finish. Very drinkable, enjoyable, and the low alcohol certainly qualifies it as a solid session beer. Based upon its ratings, Seems under appreciated to me.
