Traditional English bitter, but with a slightly more than needed bitterness. Very little aroma, very little glass activity. Average. Bov (13005) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JAN 27, 2004
I had this beer many years ago at one time when I was too lazy and stupid to write my thoughts. I will update this as soon as I get my hands on this beer again. crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - APR 27, 2003
smelled carmelly, had a nice amber colour, a watered donw hops flavour. The only up note on this beer was that it was a gift from england. reebtogi (6326) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 22, 2012
2L brown plastic bottle sampled many years ago poured a dusty light brown color with a huge white head that retained well and left a few spots of lacing as it settled. Aroma was nutty and earthy with some toasted grains. Taste is an earthy hop bitterness with a nutty butter flavor and a toasted malty sweetness. Light bodied and was surprisingly tasty despite its low ABV. A little bit musty for my tastes, may have been an old bottle. Ungstrup (38140) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 7, 2005
An amber beer with a small orange head. The aroma is spicy with a sharp hoppyness. The flavor is sweet and very dry hoppy in the end.

Draught at Cheshunt Rugby Club. It was served very cold, but still had some flavour - a tea-ishness with hints of citrus. Any hoppiness that may have been there was frozen out and the serving temp. also killed off the finish. However I enjoyed it - it was a most refreshing post-match pint.

reddish copper. Pleasant foretaste, slightly nutty. Good finish............. ThomasE (5174) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 24, 2005
Reddish amber colour with small off-white head. Slightly sweet malty aroma with hints of hops. Flavor again has some sweetness combined with a bitter finish. DruncanVeasey (8261) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2008
Searles, Hunstanton. Thin nutty malt aroma. Biscuit, vanilla, chalk and vegetable water. Heavily diluted gravy, varnishy bitterness. Pretty awful, but bearable. Makes total sense it’s brewed by John Smith’s. jfm (1724) - Holbæk, DENMARK - SEP 1, 2004
Light malty start with some bittterness in the finish. Feels rather thin and watery. Not the best bitter out there.
