MiP (15304) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 12, 2006
Bottle. Gusher?! Nice, candyish, flowery hop aroma. Almost clear golden colour without much head. Quite nice hop flavour, a lot like the aroma, and sweet. Nice bitterness. High carbonation. This would make a cracking cask ale.

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2006 Good, but a little flavorless, ORganic beers, I have tried two so far, I guess, but they are like vegetarian food for those like me who like meat.

larsga (7314) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 26, 2005
Largish, coarsely laced head over golden body. Sweet, dense aroma of apples and some hops. Powerful taste of apples, some smokiness, malty sweetness, and a bitter hop finish, with some metal notes. Overall a good ale, but nothing remarkable, and the metal detracts from it a bit. (0.5l bottle.)
