[thank you, Chris_o]
Pours clear copper with a fine, creamy film head. Aroma is softly hoppy, but not much else. Okay mouthfeel. Flavour is also softly hoppy, okay sweet malty, but only low bitterness. Very dull.

Bottled, 355ml from Beers of Europe, Norfolk. Orange gold with fizzed white head. This is way too carbonated for me and certainly to match ípubí beers, wet cardboard on the aroma and initial flavour. There is a fruity sweetness within the malt, sweet orange notes then a reasonable earthy leafy hop, but the initial flavour put me off Iím sorry to say. Not for me.

330ml bottle (K CM, Helsinki) - at 4.7% (supermarket strength)
Rich amber, small persistent head. Lovely sweet fruity hoppy aroma. Some more savoury and spicy aromas too, more like UK hops. Gentle carbonation, smooth palate. Caramelly maltiness, and also a fruity sweetness, augmented with a tasty well balanced bitter hoppiness. Some hints of soap occasionally. Fruity and spicy hoppy finish. A touch sticky alas. However, itís a good effort from a US brewer at this strength, better than your average UK bitter.
