johndoughty (4234) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2008
Bottle. Tawny appearance and a pleasant freshness about it. Slightly malty with a medium body. Impressive.

Mungo (2471) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAR 25, 2008
Bottle. Overly sweet with lots of toffee, fortunately there are some toasty flavours to provide extra interest.  Slight boiled bottled flavours to the malt, hops not noticeable other than as a bit of mild bitterness in the finish.

DruncanVeasey (7633) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2008
Bottle. Sourish, nutty, slightly cabbagey malt/yeast aroma almost exactly like Westvleteren 8. I’m not making this up. Onion-like hops in the snout as it cooks. Wet dunked doughy biscuit and vanilla egg custard with nutmeg. Yep, that’s exactly it. All Badger’s bottled beers have that signature taste, and I like it. But it’s predictable.

joe19612 (2107) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2008
Bottle. Poured a dark amber colour with a small thin white head. Their is not much aroma but just a hint of malts, with citrus and hops. The taste is citrus with a large hint of spices with a dry bitter finish.

downender (6890) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2008
Bottle. Deep amber with a big, off-white head. Subdued malt and spice aroma. Flavour of dried fruit with some caramel and a decent bitter finish. Ok.

johninmelb (1127) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2008
Slightly soapy but strongly flowery and spiced nose. Pours ruby/copper with a persistant beige head. Good nutty malt balanced with a strongly dry hoppy bitterness in the flavour consistently from start to lingering, dry finish

sm89walt (1799) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 14, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 22, 2009 Bottle. Pours a dark copper colour with a thick off-white head with good retention and which leaves behind a nice lacing on the glass. Quite carbonated in the beginning but this soon dies down. Its aromas are hoppy - citric fruits and a floral element - but also a touch metallic at times too unfortunately. The flavours are of an obviously pasteurised quality: generic malts, fruit and floral notes. A fairly thin mouthfeel with a relatively decent finish.

RichardGretton (4407) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2008
Bottle. Dark brown beer with a fairly strong head. The aroma is roasted, warming, toffee and dry. The flavour is very bitter with a roasted and toffee feel. Overall a fairly average beer.

Amber with a white head. Sweet slightly buttery malt aroma. Malty taste with some sourness and a mid bitter finish. Good winter beer.
