rosenbergh (11947) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 21, 2012

Dark copper colour with small light tan head. Very dark malt, caramel, nuts, wood and mild bitterness in aroma. Dark malt, dry wood and dry mild bitterness. Dark English style IPA.

Leighton (22814) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2012
Bottle in the hotel room, Aberdeen. Pours clear copper with a fizzy, white head. Modest toasty malts with hints of leaves and fruits in the aroma. Lightly sweet flavor, some slight caramel malts, leafy bitterness. Light bodied with average, tingly carbonation. Light sweet finish, mild dryness, leaves, faint berries. Rather bland overall, but it’s drinkable.

Martin243 (1245) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2011
500ml bottle served cool. Dark Brown with a thin offwhite head. Definitely not Ruby Red. Aroma of hay and barnyard, taste of dried fruit and smoky leather. I have an aversion to smoky flavours in beer, so I might not be doing this justice. O.K. but a bit "meh". Good luck if it’s your bag.

Benjii (3050) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 27, 2011
330ml bottle from Waitrose. Pours an amber colour with a thin beige head. Aroma of caramel and treacle with some yeast and grassy hop notes. Malty flavour upfront with caramel and a bitter - dry finish. Moderate CO2 prickle also. Not bad.

3.2
imdownthepub (15524) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2011
Bottled, 330ml from Asda in Berwick upon Tweed, Northumberland. Reddish brown with scummy head. Sweetish malty fruity beer, there is a slight twang, blueberry note Sweet finish. Ok

JohnRMurdoch (5149) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAY 8, 2011
Bottle from Peckham’s Rye. Rich medium brown colour with a massive foamy head. Strong resin malt aroma. Big oaty malty flavour. Quite fizzy & sharp. Nice bottle but not much else to like about this one.

stobbe74 (3790) - DENMARK - APR 15, 2011
Bottle. Pours a clear and copper beer with an offwhite head. The aroma is weak with malt and hops with grass and earthy notes. The flavor follows the nose closely. The palate is dry. Overall an average beer.

flying_pig (1686) - SCOTLAND - MAR 23, 2011
Bottle (330ml) - Quite like a lot of English bitters with hints of toffee & some malts on the nose. Dark fruits & a pleasant berry smell along with some caramel can also be detected. Dark Copper with a nice, dark white head that settles to a half centimeter of lacing around the top of the glass. Quite dark but clear with no bubbles. Rather like the smell with dark summer fruits such as berries being the main flavour detected. It mirrors the smell with toffee & hints of caramel. There is a quite bitter aftertaste. Quite light on the palate with lots of carbonation &quite a bit of fizz on the tongue as it is drank. I found this one just a little too watery although it was very easy to drink. I doubt I would purchase this beer again although wouldn’t rule out drinking it again, it’s just that there is a lot of much better bitters out there. - - - /

douglas88 (9797) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 10, 2010
500 ml bottle. Pours a clear ruby color with a medium white head. The aroma is caramel and light fruit, sweet malty. A easygoing rich caramel backbone aside the more fruity almost yeasty presences. Thin and very watery. Easy to drink. Decent. Earthy grains as well.
