This powerful, yet easy-drinking, golden brew is developed with a combination of old and new world hops, resulting in a beer with fragrant hop aromas, a smooth, balanced, malty character and a lingering hop bitterness in the finish. Named after Wojtek, pronounced

Nilz (503) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - OCT 7, 2012
Bottle pours a clear amber with a slim persisting white head. The aroma has a fruity hopiness. Taste is a nice mix of subtle fruit flavours, malt and bitterness; all in all very drinkable.

bottle pours orangey old gold with vibrant white head that stays . bold resinous pine fragrant aroma . taste starts muted , slightly sweet and malty then the hop bitterness kicks in a la IPA . Long lingering IPA style finish . quite full carbonation ok but a bit one dimensional

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2012
Bottle in Spainsbury’s beer-off. Bright orange-gold with a slim white head retreating to the edges of the glass. Good buttery orange, wine gum, US IPA peachiness, Lockets, slight leafy nose. Soapy throatsweet, stale sherbet, peach iced tea, chipshop battered sausage batter, flowery, Sheps/Alesmith IPA flavour. Not for me.

This is a pleasant enough beer but it suffers from not having one strong flavour. There’s a malty, sweet aspect with a bitter, hoppy edge but nothing really stands out. It could have been great if it wasn’t trying to do a bit of everything.

rauchbier (3808) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2012
Bottle, from Sainsburys Hessle. Gold, thin but lasting white head and moderate condition. Pleasantly hoppy nose with hints of grapefruit citrus and a suggestion of celery, along with gentle grainy malt, Quite dry in the mouth with a dominant hop bitterness that dissipates to allow a sweet maltiness to gain a foothold briefly before the hops return with a vengeance in the finish leaving a lasting spicy tingle in the back of the throat.

Pale in appearance, hoppy and fruity and somewhat lager like, overall a fairly good beer

Crosse Keys Spoons. Hazy gold beer. Residual white head. Smooth palate, semi dry. Fairly low carbonation. Sweetish hops. Peach, tangerine, tropical fruits, grapefruit, even a little Sorachi Ace lemon flavour. A really nice medley! Finishes semi dry. Lip smacking hops. With some condition this would have been an easy 4+
