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.

Maria (10129) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUL 2, 2007
Opening this beer releases a geyser that lived in the bottle, and I lost half of the contents :( The head is, as you can understand, huge, but also very lasting, and it leaves good lacing. The color is like a golden cognac and the aroma is alluring and flowery. The flavour is refreshing, hoppy with notes of light fruit and flower, and the bitterness is OK. It’s a charming organic ale with a nice long finish.

imdownthepub (10021) - 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 (9789) - 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.
