Poured from bottle. Medium frothy head and light Amber in colour. Slight citrus nose. Crisp, with a slight grapefruit flavour and a small amount of vanilla, very subdued. Not much on the palate

Bottle, 330ml. Clear amber with an inch of off white head. Aroma of grapefruit and lemon blossoms, caramel, some bread. A fair bit of body for under 5%. Lowish carbonation. Sweet gives way to bitter pretty quickly in the taste. There’s some dried fruit in with the toffee and citrus flavours. Floral and herbal lemon dominates at the end. A trifle overhopped for mine, but pretty good. waiake (606) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 18, 2015
500ml bottle considered an amber ale & sure looks like one poured cloudy amber gold & amazingly frothy with an enticing fruity aroma taste is lovely caramel malty sweet but tangy fruity flavours come through real well & a fruity bitter finish left me wanting more k0mpsa (3028) - Tuusula, FINLAND - MAR 4, 2015

Bottle from Wine Emporium 220215. Murky looking deep shade amber colour with a splash of foam across the top. Quite a malty drop with a hint of toffee and caramel in the flavour. Enjoyable. ab29 (59) - - DEC 4, 2014
Nice fruity hops on the nose, can smell from a short distance away. slightly bread.
looks a dark amber colour, with the head retaining well.
Easy and light, with some strong fruity hoppy undertones, leaving a long taste.
500ml bottle 3fourths (9351) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 29, 2013
Hand pump (keg) at the Hop Garden in Wellington. Hazed dull brown body with a film of large bubbles on top. Caramel malt, candied orange, herb / grass / spice, bread crust, toast and nut aroma and flavor. Medium-low sweetness, similarly matched bitterness with a lingering EKG-like herbal lemon oil / spice flavor late. Carbonation is low, yeah it’s "cask" so it should be low but this is basically flat rather than naturally carbonated. kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 17, 2013
The head is ok, the body brown-red. It smells hoparomatic, bit malty, bit dry. The taste is hoparomatic, bitter, bit malty, bit fruity. beer-yum (1836) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 27, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 11, 2014 An enjoyable English ale that makes a good addition to Townshend’s range of sessionable brews. Definitely one for the handpull...
