COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled - pasteurised. Occasionally available in the cask.
Deep amber in color with a fruity aroma which brings a complex mix of malts and mainly English hops including Fuggles and Northdown. With a hint of barley wine, it is ideal to accompany food.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 1, 2003
Clear bottle: amber with a tinge of red. Aroma is of sweet malts, with some floral, citrusy hops. Flavour is bitter(ish)sweet, quite cloying sweet at the start, but the hops dry it out towards the end and add a touch of bitterness. Nothing spectacular, and not even that interesting. A bit medicinal and cloying at times.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 12, 2003
Medium amber clear under a smallish cream-yellow fading head. Medium woody hops with some medicinal character aroma. Nicely balanced smooth full body. Low carb. Sweetish woody bready caramel malt with nice touch of hoppy bitters flavours. Pretty good for a tourist beer.

rauchbier (3593) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2002
Bottled. Amber bronze, good condition with a rocky head. Good spicey peppery hop aromas. Lots of hop flavour in the mouth with a good balance of toffee malt and a soft lingering hoppy aftertaste. Surprisingly good, but hides its strength well.

omhper (19192) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 24, 2002
UPDATED: APR 8, 2004 <i<Sampled cask conditioned at Oliver Twist, Stockholm.
Brownish amber. Fruity and hoppy. Sweet and richly malty with loads of grass and plums. Salty licorice and bitterness in the finish.
