75cl bottle. Golden colour, large and persistent creamy head. Spicy, quite hoppy and malty, full-bodied. Lovelly flowery hops from Falnders. I often use this beer as a present for people who like beer, but have no idea there are more beer styles than lager and Pilsener.

A fresh harvest of barley, hops and grain rests on the windowpane…It heralds Grandpa’s old recipe…Sweet, winey, with drops of vanilla, it is sure to make you think of your ancestors…

gnoff (7750) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - FEB 4, 2006
Sampled this from a bottle at a beer tasting event at The Rover in Gothenburg January 14, 2006. Golden color, very acid scent and flavor, refreshing and quite nice. Could think that it would suit well in the picnic basket a warm summer evening.

jercraigs (7699) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 16, 2005
Bottle. Golden yellow, small white head. Muted hop aroma, some honey? Herbal spciery hops throught the flavour with muted malt. Average palate. Decent but fails to catch my attention.

shrubber85 (7515) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUN 5, 2005
Corked botte. Apple, malt and vinegar aroma. Amber color with large lacey head. Lightly sweet malt and apple juice flavor with moderate bitter finish. Moderate body. Nice and drinkable

I found this one tucked away in a cupdboard. It may be a biere de garde but I had unfortunately gardee'd it for 5 years past the best before date. Nonetheless, it was still quite drinkable. Poured entrirely flat with no head but developed a petillant spritz on the palate. Curious muted apricot colour, no doubt due the length of time in bottle and not entirely clear. Nose was appley/cidery/citric, with slight vinous and malty undertones. Quite clean and sharp on the palate, with some sweetness. The sharpness lingered on the finish long after other flavours had subsided. All in all though, surprisingly pleasant for a beer 5 years out of date. Must get some more and re-rate when fresher. Bottle, December 2003. RE-RATE: One hour later and nearing the bottom of the 750ml bottle and I have indigestion already. The acidic/cidery character no doubt contributed. Deduct one point.

This was a surprisingly delicious BDG. The hops seemed really fresh, just a pleasant beer.

DruncanVeasey (7134) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2007
500ml can. Lagery gold pour capped with circular clumps of snowy froth. Heady peardrop fruitiness and a pinch of coriander in the nose once it warms up a bit. Uncompromisingly bitter, boozy and full-on overripe fruity,with a steadying undercurrent of mellow, wheaty spice. Not bad at all.
