Fin (7411) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2006
Bottle. Pale golden coloured beer that pours with a very small head, very refreshing and nice hoppinessthe bitterness and sweetness balance each other out well to leave you all in thinking that this is quite a decent beer.

MiP (13598) - 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.

fiulijn (14552) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 26, 2005
Amber color. The aroma is malty and with some honey. The flavor is quite ordinary, some sweetness, some bread. Ordinary Ale.

Nekronos (3633) - Xalapa, MEXICO - OCT 29, 2005
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.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2005
Gee man iv been having some good beers tonite, however this does rate with them. Taste is cocconut with a sort of hoppy nothingness, sweetish finish, alcohol hidden.

YogiBeera (2475) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 4, 2005
Nice orange color with a small head on top. Medium apricot nose, also cobweb and cardboard. Pepper and medium grape taste with malty intervalls. Slightly stale hops taste and finish - but all in all decent and enjoyable.

larsga (6213) - 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.)

pivo (2566) - GERMANY - SEP 24, 2005
Dusty nose, sweet grain and some apricot. Deep hazy gold and a tall frothy head. Sweet doughy malt with some citrus. Papery end with a grittiness. Medium-full body. Warming alcholo touch at end. OK, but stale and musty character.

oh6gdx (20333) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 16, 2005
Bottled. Golden colour with big foamy white head, lacing. Hoppy nose with metallic and hayish hints. Soft hoppy flavour, which grows a bit in finish. Quite boring and feels a bit empty with only hoppyness.
