Our very first brew and still our most popular cask beer. A classic bitter providing a balanced hoppy flavour with a malty aftertaste.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 1, 2006
Nice malt/hops aroma,light copper, pours a large off-white head. Subtle malt taste, sweet, almost cloying. A little less than hoped for. Thank You Michael @ Chesters in Hamilton!

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2006
Hazy orange with a large white head. Sweet head with a hint of marmalade fruit. Malty flavour but a lot of sourness before the long lasting bitter finish. Drinkable but didn’t completely work for me.

Ungstrup (29174) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 9, 2006
An orange beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is lovely sweet with notes of hops and fruits. The flavor is sweet with a good hop presence, but also notes of caramel and hints of citrus from the hops, leading to a dry end.

Beautiful amber color. Very nice aroma, malty and fruity, with some hops. Reasonable body structure, malty. Quite hoppy (good English hops) but a touch of sourness, probably a light infection.

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 24, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Unclear - unclean - with floating, yeasty impurities and a gigantic head that simply continues to float out of the bottle for several minutes. Lovely fruity nose. Rather light body, somewhat flat. Weak notes of nuts and plenty of fruit. Vague citrusy tartness and a short bitterness. Absolutely drinkable. 231205
