Ungstrup (29851) - 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.

Papsoe (25083) - 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

oh6gdx (20947) - Vasa, FINLAND - NOV 28, 2011
Cask. Amber colour with a small slightly off-white head. Aroma is nutty, wooden, mildly resiny as well as some toffeeish and sweet malty notes. Flavour is rather similar in a very easy to drink way. Yet quite bodied, for being only 4 %.

omhper (19976) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JAN 21, 2002
Sampled cask conditioned. Amber coloured. Fuggle hop aroma. Malty and fruity. Big, delicate maltiness, medium to low bitterness. I just love the beatiful malt profile. This is a well balanced, remarkable bitter.

fiulijn (15370) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 25, 2005

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.

bhensonb (11533) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 22, 2010
Bottle from Malt & Vine. Pours hazy copper with a foamy off-white head. Aroma is very fruity - peach/apricot. Near medium body with mildly foamy carbonation. Flavor starts peach and does end woody/nutty. Flavors are so mild, and they seem to wear out the nose abilities, so the flavor goes down in intensity, leaving some peachy fruity hop bitter. Still it’s a damn good ale.

Bottle. Golden beer, offwhite head. Metallic aroma. Hoppy grassy metallic flavor, spices, hay. Pleasant grass finish with herbal notes.

imdownthepub (10661) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2013
Cask conditioned at Far From the Madding Crowd, Oxford. Amber to brown with white lacing head. Quite a decent, crisp, biscuity, malty body with a low impact, greenish leafy hop note. All a little understated but certainly a reasonable quaffing bitter. Easy going.
Earlier Rating: 1/13/2004 Total Score: 3.3
Cask Conditioned at The Rose & Crown, Charlbury. Pale brown with bubbly head. This is a sweetish malt beer, fruity and soft. There is an overlaid aromatic hop that is quite gentle.
