COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle; Pasteurised.
"Beers for bottling are drawn from brewery conditioning tanks and transported by road tanker to our bottlers. There they are chilled, stored for ten days, then filtered and bottled. At the end of the bottling process, the bottles are pasteurised, labelled and packed."
"Brewed with many generous handfuls of choice Golding hops, it is full flavoured ale with a rich fruit nose. The bittersweet malty taste is followed by an uncompromising long, dry and bitter finish. This beer was the first, most successful, of all of our bottled beers."

Ungstrup (29335) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 12, 2002
An orange beer with very little head. It has a very nice fruity aroma of orange. It is slightly bitter with hints of orange. A very refreshing beer - that I’ve like to have again.

[Bottled at East End Brewery, Quarry Bay, Hong Kong] Brownish amber, clear, firm head. Pleasant mangoish hop aroma. Dryish with clean mouthfeel Pleasant biscuity malt flavour. The moutfheel is short and quickly replaced by grassy bitterness with a touch of sulphur. Unadventurous, but well crafted.

harrisoni (13738) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 10, 2007 Bottle at Fountain, Seabrook, Kent Copper coloured with off white thickish lasting head. Resiny hops with good biscuity malts, very bitter on end with good longish finish. Would definitely drink again. Re-rate drunk a bottle on the train on the way home from work and I gave it exactly the same score. Amazing. Little bit more put off this time by the pasteurisation and candy sugar, but there is a definite attractive yeast, hop, malt balance and a sharpness from the yeast and hop on finish is very good. 737314
