Fin (9168) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2006
Bottle, Copper coloured beer with a thick white head, though this was probably as a result of careless pouring, as half of the head ended upon the table. Suprised that I hadnít rated this easy to get beer. Aroma was quite malty and hoppy which to be honest transferered itself rather convieniently over to the taste, good tasting beer which has a nice balance, good bitterness and is very drinkable hops are present throughout.

nimbleprop (6867) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 16, 2006
Poured a clear copper with a lacing white head. Interesting malty aroma with just a hint of aromatic hops. Malty, bitter flavor. Clean, watery finish.

Grovlam (4198) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 13, 2006
Bottle 500 ml. Ambries colour with a light thin head. Very interesting and well balanced beer. First impression was that it had a bitter taste, but it is really much more complex. Smooth and very drinkable. Thought it was somewhat dry and malty. Nice and different finish.

Stefano (1938) - Thisted, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2006
Orange, clear, white head. Light, fruity, low hop aroma. Tasted bitter but was masked well by roasted flavors. I enjoyed this one.

Illini08 (542) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - SEP 29, 2006
Poured a light copper color with tons of carbonation on the side of my glass. Mild hop aromas. This is a well balanced session beer. My main complaint is that its overly carbonated. Solid session beer though.

Tranquillity (1697) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 29, 2006
Deep brown colour. Just like fullers Discovery, the aroma is full of flowers but itís not as full. Wonderfully complex, very malty. Good hoppy balance in the finish.

VeloVampire (625) - Parkdale, Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 25, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2008 500 ml can - Pours a beautiful amber with a huuuuge thick creamy white head. Aroma mainly of malts, with some hops to balance. Very thin mouthfeel with almost no carbonation. Flavour is largely dominated by the malt, but there is a very pleasant balancing/bittering undertone of lemony hops from start to finish, and the hops remain after the malt has faded. Very nice.

bitbucket (2164) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - SEP 21, 2006
Bottled. Pours a clear bright amber with a thick but diminishing off-white head that produces some lace. Aromas of toffee and grassy hops. Medium body. The taste is nutty, with withe toffee and grapefruit. Crisp finish with some piney notes.

patrick767 (3918) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - SEP 18, 2006
draft - Pours copper with a moderate head and an aroma of caramel malt and mild hops. The flavor is moderately hoppy with a nice malt balance, a medium body, and a dry, hoppy finish. Quality.
