Clear golden pour. Medium off white head. Subtle bitterness. A little nutty in the aftertaste. Decent
Bottle. Amber in colour. Malty (biscuity malts, caramel, toffee). Fruity (citrus-orange). Hoppy (floral hops). Full flavoured. Nice malt/fruit/hop balance. Tasty. Very drinkable. (2008) GSAP (761) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 7, 2017
500ml fles, schenkt helder koperkleurig mengsel met slordige kraag. Smaak is verrassend pittig van de hop, fruit tonen als mandarijn en mineola, met bitters die links en rechts prikken. Ook lange afdronk. Aroma is als premium pils met toffee, steeds binnen het groene bereik en niet vies. Dat voor 5%! wheresthepath (2405) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2015
Bottle, gift from Jim- cheers. Amber with a small white head. Malty malty malty with some blackcurrant. A little dirty hop note in the finish but not enough to spoil a good malty English bitter.

Cask-conditioned at the Three Tuns, Bristol March 2015. Amber in colour, with an off-white head. Sweetish, cereal malts, a touch of hedgerow fruit, honey, and moderately bitter finish. Good. Stuu666 (15056) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 23, 2015
Cask at the hanging bat. Pours clear golden, nose is toffee, floral, taste is wishy washy, toffee, floral. BlackHaddock (7746) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2015
500ml bottle: drank at home on 14th Mar 2015. Poured into an Abbot Ale badged glass tankard and shared with no one. Lively bit of kit, a huge off-white billowing foam head only allowed me to fill half the glass with beer, copper hue to the clear amber body. Nice blend of flavours and well balanced with neither the hops or malts ruling the brew. Woody, nutty and tasty. Semi-sweet malty molasses vie with the mildly bittering hops for your attention and dance around the mouth in perfect harmony: a great start to my evenings mini rating session.

Bottle from Darlington railway station. allmyvinyl (11073) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 23, 2015
Appearance -dirty honey colour and decent head.
Nose - honey, toffee and hazelnuts.
Taste - yep praline again, light biscuit bitterness.
Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy yet tangy texture and a tangy and fairly dry finish.
Overall - quite complex but slightly sweeter than I’d have made it.
500ml bottle from Ashton McCobb - cheers Ash! Pours hazy amber, thin white head. Aromas of praline, light malt sweetness. Taste is honeycomb, light bitterness at the back. Medium body, good balanced finish.
