Clear orange-red amber with medium off-white head. Aroma is grass, honey, caramel, pear and apple, slightly nutty. Taste is caramel, pear-apple notes, yet again - slightly nutty, pleasantly bitter with a slightly dry bitter finish. Medium body with medium carbonation. Extremely enjoyable and easy to drink, very descent bitter!

Bottle from Cheers in Mumbles.
Appearance - amber and cloudy with a nicely proportioned head.
Nose - a little dried orange but mostly grainy.
Taste - very grainy indeed. Looking for fruit and hops but not finding it.
Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a fairly good finish.
Overall - hard work.

Bottle at home from notes. Pours a clear amber color with a small white head. Aroma was mainly, caramel, some nutty character and fruity hops. The flavor opens with light toasted malts, caramel and fruit. A slight cardboard note, mild bitterness soon follows. This is just ok. Medium bodied, smooth and not to be revisited.

The_Osprey (9343) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2014
500ml bottle from Wyevale Llansamlet. BB July 2015. Dark orange, pretty clear, highly sparkling, big foamy off-white head. Aroma is syrupy molasses, caramelly, gets a bit metallic over time. Body is light, very foamy, soft caronation. Taste is toffee malts, dark treacle, light chocolate, some resin, soft bitterness. Good full flavoured bitter. Silly drinkable.

Bottle received as gift. Pours deep ruby colour with creamy head. An odd blend of rich flavours but very satisfying too
