yespr (33872) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAR 29, 2008
50 cL bottle. Pours cloudy yellow to orange with a white head. Light citrus fruity aroma. Flavour is sweet malty with a light citrus fruity note, minor though. Light malty and fruity finish. Easy to drink brew, nothing complex nothing wrong.

Ungstrup (29988) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 21, 2004
An orange beer with no head. The aroma is sweet malty - quite boring. The flavor is sweet malty with hints of honey and a light hoppy end. All in all a boring beer.

Papsoe (25074) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 16, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2005 (Bottle 50 cl) Fully golden, slightly hazy ale with an impressive, huge and very stable head. Quite sweetish and aromatic with only a vey discreet bitterness. A rather surprising and different ale which is also stronger than the typical Scottish ale. And the storytelling on these Broughton bottles is simply great. 190304

oh6gdx (21963) - 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.

omhper (20606) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 1, 2006
[Bottled at Stockholm Beer Festival] Clear golden. Heavily papery nose. Sweetish and medium bodied with loads of cardboard. The low hop rate leaves a lot space for the malt flavour. Sadly that consists entitrely of mashed paper and cardboard. A beer for the paper recycling.

cgarvieuk (16663) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 3, 2007
Golden Orange coloured ale, very light and fresh, with a subtle orange hoppiness but a bit drying

fiulijn (16003) - 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.

harrisoni (14715) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2007
500ml bottle from Booths. It’s gold, with thin white head. Hoppy aroma. Some grassy hop, hay. It’s got some thing in the line of Summer Lightning. Too carbonated and a bit thin in malts too. Finish is too metallic. Alcohol doesn’t over do it.
