bembelembe (216) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 5, 2009
Bitter with herbalish hops and sweet malt. Rich orange flavor with honey, nutty and burbon notes. Golden-amber body, low carbonated. Pleasant aftertaste.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JAN 2, 2009
500ml bottle, 23rd Dec 08. Amber with a smooth white head. Feels a bit artificial and lacks aroma. Quite dry and sharp, some hop flavour but overall bland and average.

Bottle at home... This is one of those beers that i wasnt looking forward to that much but from the first taste found to be a delight ... slightl hazy amber ... sweet metalic nose not so nice ... sweet (prob why i liked it ) fuirty juicy and in tasting (not drinking) the metalic flavour is more present ... on drinking the metalicness is barly noticible and your left with a nice caramel malt with a ligth hop

bluevegie (3058) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 29, 2008
500m bottle. Got a better head on the second pour, though still didn’t want to stay around for too long, orangey body. Nose was quite promising, piney hops, flavour follows through to the taste but just lacks depth and even a little watery.

Gethinbeer (2193) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - AUG 30, 2008
Bottle. A bit of a skunky aroma. Clear golden colour. Decent white head. Rich, honey flavour. Bit of fruit, malt , hops. But overall rather dull.

DruncanVeasey (7309) - NUNEATON, Top 23, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUN 26, 2008
Signature yeasty aroma with honey, sherbety fruit, sulphur, musty Goldings, pencilly conifer. Some citrussy hop, Fairy Liquid lemony soap and almond in the mouth. Smells promisingly yeasty, but ends up dominated by nasty lingering bitterness and nuthusky/shampoo afters. Really average pasteurised bitter. Amber with slender white lid.

Beth101 (531) - West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 22, 2008
Amber colour with a small off white head. Smelt fruity with a faint smell of hops. Tasted of apricots and hops with a slightly bitter aftertaste.

onlyrocknroll (379) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - JUN 16, 2008
Light honey orange with a medium head. Soft but pleasant citric bitter aroma. Straight-forward refreshing flavour, decent balance between a mild caramel malt a gentle bitterness that lingers quite nicely. Quite light bodied. A very respectable beer.

scotty (1060) - SCOTLAND - JUN 13, 2008
Initially, this was quite promising, looks good, and the aroma is ok, good and hoppy. However, the palate and lack of flavour really let this down. The first mouthful was fine but within seconds the hop & malt flavours had disappeared leaving nothing, no finish...nothing! A shame, as this started off well, but at the end of the day.....

Mungo (2471) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2008
A boring bottled bitter, nothing really to recommend. A little dusty hop and sweetish caremelised malt flavours. Metallic carbonation.
