BeerandBlues2 (10833) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 24, 2006
Draught at Flying Saucer in Little Rock. Pours copper with a tall foamy off-white head and spotty lacing. Aroma is floral citrus hop, caramel medium roasted malt (meal) with trace yeast. Medium bitterness and acidic hop flavor, malt body, low sweetness and lasting flavor. Medium bodied and crisp, refreshing palate.

madsberg (10801) - Søborg, DENMARK - JAN 28, 2006
Bottled: Amber coloured. Unclear. Dense light beige head.. Sweet and light caramelly aroma. Flavour is sweet and a bit boring. Watery and thin. Has not much to offer in the end.

Drake (10695) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - DEC 8, 2010
12 ounce bottle from thetomG (Secret Santa Winter 10). Thanks! Pours a clear pale amber color with a medium sized frothy offwhite head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of caramel, toasty malts, husky grains and a floral hop finish. The taste is bitter hops, bitter malts with some toastiness and a grainy finish. Medium bodied. Nice. Highly drinkable.

Bottle @ The White Horse, Parsons Green. Hazy dark orange color, small white lacing. Smell sweet, some bitter. Taste bitter, lightly sweet. Not very inspirational, just an average decent beer.

daknole (10320) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 16, 2008
bottle from wisconsinbeer, thanks! Deep copper pour, barely any head at all. Aroma is very malty and some sawdust notes(previous entry below me nailed it!). Flavor is pretty plain, malty and maybe a bit nutty. Slight hop profile lends itself to the english style. Not bad, not amazing.

Maria (10191) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUN 15, 2009
It is hazy, dark orange with a creamy head. The aroma has notes of malt, fruit and caramel. The flavour has a light sweetness and notes of fruit, citrus (mostly oranges), caramel and malt. The finish is dry, and the beer is uncomplicated and pleasant, it seems very British in the hop choice.

adnielsen (10138) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 4, 2014
Bottle @ home, picked up at RJs Fort Collins. Pours a dark orange appearance with a cream colored head. Bready, chewy/doughy, light caramel, herbal aroma. Pretty good body. Light tangerine, dough, caramel, toast, earthy flavor. A bit twangy. Not something I’d buy again but it’s not bad.
