Clear copper color with small white foam ring. Aroma is quite hoppy, so is taste. Nice bitter beer. Aftertaste is dry, wheaty. (Velp 201304) olliejobbins (1578) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2013
500ml bottle. Pours a clear reddish colour with small head. Aroma is of hops, hap and grass. Tastes of hops and Malta but no complexity. Wouldn’t have again. meerbier (1474) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - FEB 2, 2013

Orange, herbal, toffee aroma. Light amber, off-white head, fair lace. Caramel, herbal, sweet, bitter. Medium body. Bitter yes, hoppy no. Bit boring.
Bottle. Clear amber ale with a sweet, floral nose. Bittersweet with a soft elderflower and grapefruit taste. Short finish. Drinkable but not anything special. BlackHaddock (7233) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2012
500ml Bottle: best before Sep 20013, poured into a UK pint sleeve @ home on 8th Dec 2012.
Amber, clear and bright, sadly the head left before I had a chance to appreciate it (I hate that).
I expected the nose and taste to be Hoppy, but it certainly isn’t overly hopped: the main aroma being caramel and other semi-sweet malts, as is the taste. The Progress hops do give the beer a crisp hop finish but there are not enough of them to take over from the dominant malts within the brew.
I like malty beers and I enjoyed this, just thought it was going to be hoppy because of the name.

Medium body with a soft carbonation. Finishes slightly bitter with resin hops, fruits and heather honey. An enjoyable bitter. Dedollewaitor (16056) - Odense, DENMARK - NOV 2, 2012
Bottle @ Bandlys Blålys, Odense 2012. Pours clear dark golden with a off white head. Caramel, toffee and fruit. Medium bodied. RichTheVillan (7766) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2012
Retro review from Spring 2012 Wetherspoons Beer festival; this beer should be reported to trade descriptions the pump clip suggests hops, but I can’t find them smell them taste them. Other than that a decent English bitter. Vaiz (4460) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 9, 2012
Bottle at home. Clear amber pour, thin white head. Aroma of black tea, grains and floral hops. Flavor has a bit of diacetyl, black tea and is very bitter. A bit one-dimensional.
