Gorbalev (2893) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 23, 2009
On tap, Beer Bistro. Golden yellow, small white head. Classic fullers aroma - bready, grainy, some fruity hops. Very easy to drink - lightly hopped, grainy malt. Not a ton of flavour here but a pretty tasty and easy to drink 3.5% beer.

DerWeg (1431) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 16, 2009
On tap at Volo. Surprisingly light, even for style - and the beer is almost still. This drinks like water! Goldy-copper with nearly no head, no lacing. Nice subtle bitter hop profile. Nice seasonal.

16oz draught
3.5% ABV
I tried this beer on draught on April 30, 2009 at "Smokeless Joeís" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer was translucent light red with a loose white head. The aroma was grainy malt, with some hops in the mix. The mouthfeel was medium-bodied with medium-high carbonation. The taste was more grainy malt, and a nice hoppy finish. The beer was very refreshing, and definitely worth another try.

imdownthepub (9622) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2009
Bottled, 500ml from Sainsburys, Banbury. Amber with white head. Thin caramelly beer with a pronounced cardboardy character. Thinnish malt, a buttery note with a slight dusty hop. Nothing to grab hold of.

jercraigs (7335) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 11, 2009
2009-05-08. Crisp orange amber body without much of a head. Aroma has a dusty cardboard character (it is not oxidized, its something different...) over dried raisins and dark fruit (at least I donít think its oxidized...hmmm) A light touch of petrol may be from the beer or wafting in off the street. Flavour is mild, pale malts with just a kiss of sweet caramel and muted toasty malt notes. Overall a bit washed out really. Average palate. It lost a step following up a pleasant relatively brew but this just doesnít have a ton to offer. Perhaps it is better closer to home. On tap at Volo

ThomasE (5176) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 11, 2009
Amber colour with a small white head. Hoppy floral aroma with light sweet and fruity notes. Hoppy, floral and bitter flavor with a light grainy sweet note.

zach8270 (3217) - Henrietta, New York, USA - MAY 5, 2009
(draft @ The Old Toad - Rochester, NY) Light amber color with a very thick off-white head. Aroma is a little dry with some hops and a touch of caramel. Flavor is a bit dry and grassy at the beginning with a lightly dry and bitter malt middle. Finishes dry and a little sour. Mediocre.

greig (253) - Hamilton, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 27, 2009
Brought over from London by a friend. Pales in comparison with my memory of this on Cask at the Dove in Hammersmith. Itís still a pleasant refreshing pint of lunchtime bitter though. Caramel and earthy hops are the dominant flavours. Slight oxidation present, which could be due to plane travel/pressure issues getting here. Iíd have another. This one is to toast Michael Jackson on his birthday. RIP MJ.

Bottel. Thanks to Faroeviking for sharing. Pours a pale copper color with a small fast disappearing white head. Malty slightly bready caramel aroma with some hoppy hints. Sweetish malty fruity hoppy flavor with some hints of caramel. Has a sweetish malty carmale finish with some weak hoppy hints in the aftertaste.
