JanLaursen (2731) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 6, 2011
500 ml bottle; Hazy deep golden beer with a small but stable white head. Quite intense and warming, fruity aroma with notes of toffee, caramel, citrus especially orange marmalade and grapefruit. The flavor is medium sweet with delicious strong notes of bitter orange peel and flowery hops. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation soft and finish crisp and bitter dry.

jesperhammer (2646) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 27, 2013
27-APR-2013, bottle @home, from Superbest. Almost clear golden with white head. Aroma is sweet caramel and fresh grape fruit. Taste is malty sweet with caramel and dried fruit but aldo quite some hoppy grape fruit and a touch of orange. Medium body and carbonation. Better than expected. A nice little pale ale like brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mkel07 (2520) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 30, 2012
500ml bottle. There is a mixture of malt and melon fruit on the aroma which is pleasant enough. Beer looks strong in the glass with a deep amber colour and a sturdy cap of foam. Sits in the mouth well and finishes with a bit of a metallic edge on the palate.

visionthing (2393) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 21, 2014
50cl bottle at Rock cafe, Tallinn. Pours pretty clear deep golden with a bubbly head. Hoppy and citrusy aroma with malt, caramel and hints of tropical fruits. Medium sweet, lots of grapefruit and a somewhat dry and quite bitter finish. Nice one.

hawthorne00 (2253) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 20, 2012
Bottle, 8C. Gold with a modest white head. Fruity aroma of oranges, grapefruit, light biscuit. Bittersweet - a little sugary with oranges and some biscuity malt, pleasant bitter finish with grapefruit, some pine and herbs. The malt side is sweet and light, but there’s enough character there to complement the bitter citrus without just being sweet. Refreshing and tasty enough.

allmyvinyl (2166) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 24, 2014
500ml bottle from somewhere online, I forget, it’s been a long day. Clear golden orange pour, big white head, high carbonation keeps it there. bit too fizzy actually. Orange, apricot and cream on the nose. Light caramel sweet and good hop bitter taste. Quite rich for such a (relatively) low ABV. Sweet finish. OK.

bitbucket (2158) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - JAN 10, 2014
Not a lot of aroma, bits of grapefruit, toffee. Not a lot in the taste either. Dry, bitter finish. Interesting, but not sufficiently interesting for a second go-round,

jonno (2130) - JAPAN - JUL 28, 2012
Tap. Listed at 5.6% and certainly not from cask. Rich, full and fruity. Lots of berries, grapefruit and a touch of tropical fruit. Really full - if a bit heavy handed. Well made and certainly recommended.

UPDATED: APR 7, 2014 Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; clear light copper pour with frothy white head, pine hop aroma, caramel taste with a hint of bread pine hop and a hint of citrus.
