Bottle at home from oddbins london bridge. orange / light amber colour with a lasting thin white head. Aroma is nutty malt with some caramel and berry english yeast esters. Some mineral character in the nose as well. Flavour is light honey / nutty malt, some caramel sweetness, mineral and english leaf hops. Solid earthy bitterness in the finish. Palate is fairly light medium body and slightly thin with a fairly dry finish. MichaelAwesome (6516) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - JAN 1, 2014
A nice and easy to go piwo with its fine caramel moments. Drinkable all the way but maybe every beer on the 31st of December is. McTapps (6856) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - DEC 31, 2013
Pours out of the bottle in a deep amber colour with very low head and medium body. Nice aroma of of nuts and straw. Taste of hops, caramel, chestnuts, nuts, malt and mild chocolate. Very easy and nice to drink with a very smooth and mild finish. Nice one. kufdam (159) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2013
Cask at The Windsor and Eton brewery. Flowery hops on a rich pale malt make this eminently drinkable.

Bright and coppery. Aroma is toffee and NS hops behind a Crystal Malt wall. Taste is malty toffee, hops quite subdued, but some tropical hop bitterness coming through. Quite clever actuaaly, crystal toffeeness and pacific combo.

Bottle from AlesByMail.co.uk. Nice head with good duration. Color is amber. Aroma and taste are rich flowers, bitter hops, malt, caramel and fruits. Nice bitter finish. ianwelby (1368) - SCOTLAND - JUL 5, 2013
Clear, deep gold beer with a frothy head. Peachy, hoppy scent. Peach in the flavour but itís predominantly the dry hop flavour coming through. The finish is dry but with a sour, sweet tang. MartinT (9795) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 3, 2013
My Bottom Line:jackl (8013) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 18, 2013
This leafy Bitter benefits from some fruity esters and lightly caramelized cereals to create balance even before the spicy, citrusy hop bitterness kicks in.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam circles the clear amber.
-The mouthfeel is rather loose. Could be more polished, in other words.
-The body is slender, which helps drinkability.
-That bitterness is surprisingly long lasting.
-Although this was a more than decent Bitter, I have to say it was quite forgettable overall. Too classic an interpretation for my tastes that day?
On cask at Wenlock Arms.
Cask @ The Duchess Of Cambridge. The pourís amber with a tiny head. The nose is sugar cookie. A touch of toffee, brown sugar. Summery peach, general orchard fruits. The taste is light honey, a touch of citrus. Pears, peaches. Soft breadiness. Light body, fine carbonation. Overall, quite enjoyable. Nice. Rasmus40 (20303) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - MAY 2, 2013
