Brewed using the highest quality barley grown on UK assured farms. Golden in colour with a light, dry palate & a fresh, fruity aroma. Perfect with bangers & mash or roast beef.
Matured live in the bottle for a fresher taste. Can be enjoyed cloudy, but ideally pour slowly leaving the last few drops in the bottle with the yeast. For best results store upright & serve at 10-12°C.

Hazy yellow. Cloudy with nice head. Like a darker Hoegaarden in appearance and lemon nose. Gor bit sickly towards end for me.this bottled conditioning goes for my head- ie feel drinker sooner.

Sometimes you want a beast of an imperial stout to sip and savour sometimes you just want a simple bitter to wash down a Chinese takeaway own a Friday night slightly creamy small hops bitterness it’s fine.

Rasmus40 (22174) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - APR 20, 2017
Bottle from Craft Beer Store, Hamburg. Light hazy golden with a white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, yeasty and apples. Flavor is medium sweet and light bitter. Sweet and light bitter finish. 200417

PilsnerDoctor32 (504) - madrid, SPAIN - APR 9, 2017
Botella 0,5L. Color dorado turbio, espuma blanca, fina, alta de 2 dedos, resistente. Aroma malta, lupulo,cereales. Sabor lupulo con amargor notable y fresco que se queda en la boca.Algo acuosa.

rostetti (385) - Oulu, FINLAND - APR 9, 2017
Bottle. Pours dark golden with small white head. Aroma and taste have some toastiness, some sweetness but this is pretty tasteless after all.

kaserov (1111) - Oviedo, SPAIN - MAR 12, 2017
Color dorado turbio, con capa de espuma blanca de tres dedos de grosor (muy poca retención). Carbonatación mínima. Textura acuosa. Aroma herbal, algo de malta y lúpulo ligeramente rancio, terroso. Sabor que sigue al aroma completamente, con una mínima dosis de amargor final que no puede considerarse amargor siquiera. Beberse una botella de medio litro de algo tan plano es francamente difícil.

rumore (880) - Rimini, ITALY - MAR 1, 2017
From 50cl bottle. Pours fairly crisp intense gold, with medium foam (high in the beginning, but fading fast). Aroma is fruity, barnyard/hay, earthy. Body is medium, with medium carbonation (actually surprising for a bitter). A bit of a metallic feeling. In taste, low bitterness, some noticeable bitterness, of the traditional type (slightly herbaceous, terrain). Finish is relatively long, with lasting bitterness.

john44 (3456) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2017
Bottle. Orangey gold in colour. Sweet fruity. Malty base (buttery caramel). Hoppy (grassy & earthy hops). Long dry bitter finish. OK bottled bitter. (2008)

Stew41 (2118) - Phuket, THAILAND - NOV 23, 2016
Classic of the genre. Subtle but full of character - aniseed, soft pepper hops, dry palate. Not a beer that shouts but has plenty to say. (170 baht Villa Market)

labeerinthum (1165) - Milano, ITALY - SEP 5, 2016
Bottiglia. Il gusto al naso ritrova orzo e alcol. L’intensità olfattiva è normale e la persistenza olfattiva è sufficiente. Il cappello di schiuma ha una buona tenuta e finisce con un pizzo sul bicchiere. La grandezza delle bollicine è media e la carbonazione è abbondante. La consistenza del liquido è limpida. La grandezza delle bollicine è media. La carbonazione è esuberante, persistente ed insistita. Il colore è ambrato. Il corpo è pieno. Il dolce è medio. L’amaro è deciso ma non così carico come il nome farebbe supporre. L’intensità gustativa è elevata e la persistenza gustativa è buona. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono luppolate. Il finale è amarognolo e pulito. L’aroma in bocca racconta impressioni di miele, frutta secca, luppolo e resina.
