oh6gdx (20216) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 28, 2006
Bottled. Colour is amber, with big white fluffy head. Aroma is hoppy and a bit honey with some malts in it. Flavour is honey, flowery hops and mouldy. Weird thing is that there is something very alcohol-like in finish.

dj (520) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2006
Bottle, 500ml. Pours a light amber colour with an average lasting head, A hoppy aroma with a touch of dough. Hoppy, yeasty taste. Light carbonation. A harsh bitter finish quite like Guinness. Not much of note really. From reading other ratings, it looks like this beer varies a huge amount between batches or even bottles - and it looks like I got a sub-standard one.

KnutAlbert (6007) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 10, 2006
Very hoppy - crisp dry ale. Bright amber colour. The best medium strength English bitter available in Norway? A serious contender to be my summer beer 2006!

Bottled (BB 09/2006)
Hazy pale copper, small white head. Yeasty, a bit sweet nose and what I suppose is Target hops. Barley, some roasted notes, then strong hoppy finish. A bit yeasty with honey notes, good bitter with character.

Fin (7244) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2006
500ml Bottle from Sainsbury’s. Having raved about the Triple from Brakspear which was superb the other evening this was also excellent. An smashing hoppy beer which has a lovely bitter finish that invites you back for another slurp. A very well balanced beer.

iammadeofjelly (192) - Liverpool, Merseyside, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2006
This is a very delightful beer, its much like the other brakspear brew i have tasted but less strong. I really like the taste, hoppy on fruity on malty. the colour is murky and brown, good carbonation, slightly acidic on the back of the tongue. Pleasant mouthfeel. YUMMY and delicious, i will definately drink this again, and again.
