500ml bottle (ChrisO’s, post RBESG2011 Sunday) BB200904, drunk 201108
Sweet malty aroma, dull. Dark, but in a clear bottle. Naughty naughty, 4 becomes 3. Toffee and caramel dominate the taste. Super dry despite that. This has aged past its BB very well. Was probably quite a different beer when younger though. Finish is more toffee.

Ungstrup (29081) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 7, 2011
Bottled. A nut-brown beer with a yellowish head. The aroma has notes of hops, elderflowers, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of hops, malt, and caramel, leading to a dry roasted finish.

urbanviking (26) - Devon, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2011
Good all round ale. Nice creamy head. Malty taste which lingers. Great value too.

planky84 (1907) - , Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2011

will1 (140) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2011
Rich, dark colour, light head that clings to the glass. Spicy aroma and taste of very well roasted malts. Light fizz and quite bitter, medium bodied. Surprisingly good for the price.

undercurrent25 (1372) - Barnton, Cheshire, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2010
Quite a malty tasting beer, off brown in colour, tastes ok but not something I’d go back to

KUEric (886) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - SEP 25, 2010
Very light golden orange color with a minimal head that goes away and remains like an IPA usually does - you know that half ther, wholey ugly that’s just beautiful to a beer geek like you and I. There’s a light hoppy flavor and while it’s a bitter, I thought it could have been an IPA.

mike_77 (2966) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 3, 2010
Light brown colour. Quite a sweet and lightly fruity aroma. Medium body, clean and easy to drink. Soft malty flavour, slight hop dryness. Good session beer.

Flanfl (80) - USA - JUL 26, 2010
Bottle. Golden colour. Aroma of malt, flavour of malt, some bitterness in the finish. Medium body. This is not a good beer.
