Bottle 500ml. @ ChrisOs - Christmas Tasting.

Clear medium yellow color with a large, frothy, good lacing, mostly to fully lasting, white head. Aroma is moderate malty, toasted, moderate hoppy, grass in the early spring, strange yeasty fruit notes. Flavor is moderate sweet and bitter with a average to long duration, fruity. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. [20101228]

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2011
500ml bottle (Gyle 080502A-1) @ Christmas tasting on 28 December 2010. Not sure where this came from as I noted best before date as 31 March 2009. Very lively on opening. Pale gold colour with a big fluffy head. Definitely over-conditioned and maybe a little infected judging from the slightly musty, mushroomy notes that I picked up. However, as I have found with a number of low abv UK bottled beers that doesn’t seem do it too much harm, adding a little more interest if anything, even if unintentionally. Also some yeasty notes. All in all, tastes fine. Some decent orangey hops come through although, not surprisingly, they seem a little faded. Overall, quite interesting.

ChrisOs Christmas Tasting. Clear gold - amber beer. Very frothy white head - slow gusher. Tangy light orange in the airy palate. Finishes neutral. Somewhat infected but doesn’t seem to have made a huge difference to the flavour but has altered the palate.

harrisoni (13599) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2010
Bottle at Chris NY Tasting 2010. Hazy gold. Lasting white head. Spicy grapefruit aroma. The slight infection is ok and gives it some character. Decent body and good hops. Slight mustiness on the flavour

oh6gdx (20299) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAR 5, 2009
Bottled@Monks Cafe, Wallingatan, Stockholm. Golden colour, mediumsized white foamy head. Aroma is flowery hops along with some fruits and slight nectary notes as well. Flavour is quite much the same and also has some honeyish and grassy notes. Hoppy and yeasty finish. Pleasant.

omhper (19327) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 27, 2009
Bottled at Monk’s Café Wallingatan, Stockholm. Cloudy deep golden, small head. Grassy, fruity nose. Sweetish and medium bodied. The malt is grainy, chewy and soft. Fruity and mild, yet hoppy. Finishes with balanced floral bitterness. A very drinkable arch-English ale.

Svesse (6066) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - OCT 13, 2008
(Bottle, Monk’s Café, Stockholm) Golden colour with huge, lasting, foamy, off-white head. Some sediment in the bottle. Fruity nose with notes of dried apricots, mandarin and peaches. Fruity taste with apricots, mandarin, smooth biscuity malts and a dry, grassy, fairly short finish with floral hops. Rather thin body. Nice and refreshing. In short: apricots.

leaparsons (8036) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2008
Bottle. Golden with a small white head. Aromas are fresh and floral with citrus. Grapefruit bitterness and sourness with yeast. Lightly salty with decent hops. Flavours are peach, apricot and lemon with some citrus sourness. Biscuit malts with yeast and some cream. Quite resinous in its fruitiness. Decent.

haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2008
Bottled from the Real Ale Bottle Shop Place near Wells etc. Least interesting point: it was from gyle 080502A-1. Most interesting point(s) - looks good, smells crisp, tastes fresh, as keen as a tightrope walker’s pump on the wire. In five words? Great golden globs of hops. In four words? Oranges mixed with digestives. In three words? Impressive balanced ale. In two words? Lemon biscuits. In one word? Serendipity. In one character? !
