thewolf (11495) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 10, 2009
Bottle @ Plan B, Cph.
Pours clear golden with a small, frothy, off-white head. It disappears fast. Aroma is malty, grainy, lots of grassy notes and a bit of a metallic edge. Highish carbonation, a bit thin and watery. Flavour is lightly tart, lots of oranges, crisp piney hops. Just not really that bitter. Not my thing.

Pinball (11408) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 22, 2009
50cl bottle. clear yellow, large thick offwhite head. nice clear fruity orangy hoppy aroma, perhaps slightly spicy. very hoppy compared to what else english i’ve tasted. both pine / grape fruity hops and bitterhops. very tasty beer, refreshing and strong flavored.

imdownthepub (11393) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2003
BCA. One of my few left from the real Brakspear brewery and a bit disapointing to boot. Copper in colour with a lively head the first impression is very tinny, some maltiness with a litle tangerine and a bitter aftertaste but not too well balanced.

Lubiere (11160) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 28, 2007
A hazy amber ale with a thin white head. In aroma, light hops, biscuit, and yeast. In mouth, a rather nice crisp malt, yeast, and crisp hops. very English. Some lactic notes develop as beer warms up. Medium bodied. A very good offering from the LCBO.

FatPhil (10892) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 27, 2008
Clear orange, relatively persistent head. Lovely crisp fruity and spicy new-world hop aroma. Fairly simple palate, a tough bitter, some butter. Medium malty body. Pleasant hoppy finish. Could easily be a bit bigger, but nothing wrong with it at all.

BeerandBlues2 (10785) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 1, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear dark gold with a medium, frothy off-white head, long retention with good lacing. Aroma is biscuit malt, light diacetyl, herbal hops and pear esters. Flavor is medium hops and bitterness, light sweet malt, fruity esters and a dry finish. Medium to light body and medium carbonation.

madsberg (10783) - Søborg, DENMARK - MAY 31, 2005
Bottled: (label says Brakspear Organic Beer) Golden coloured. Clear. High carbonation. Off white head. Fruit, hops, yeast in the aroma. Very light scents) Flavour is nicely fruity and has some hoppy notes. Ends on a mildly bitterness, that evolves into some heavy bitterness. This is a nice surprise.
