jamesie1857 (1351) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2012
500ml bottle - rated this before I realised the brewer. Noted "like a weaker, thinner version of Hobgoblin". Loses it in the body for me.

(Flasche) Es hat eine bernsteinerne Farbe, ist klar filtriet mit einer weißen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist karamellig, sehr leicht oxidiert mit honig etwas malz. Der Geschmack ist Ale-lisch leicht vollmundig, leicht süß und eine nette Bittere im Abgang

reebtogi (4109) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 4, 2012
500ml bottle pours amber in color with a 2 finger off-white head that settles slowly and leaves a healthy spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is light roasted grains with some caramel, citrus and earthy notes. Taste is caramel malty sweet with some light roasted grain bitterness supplemented with a light citrus and earthy hop bitterness. Light to medium in body with generous carbonation leaving the palate pleasantly teased. Slightly more robust than the Organic Original and highly recommended.

pivnizub (8750) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - AUG 28, 2012
Bottle: Clear, chestnut-foxy coloured, stable creamy off-white foam, fruity and bready-malty nose with hops in the second row; light to moderate bitter-sweet flavour, light to medium bodied, pretty soft; shorter fruity-bitter finish. O.K., nothing to complain…
