imdownthepub (9954) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2014
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.

Lubiere (9728) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 23, 2006
Hazy golden amber ale with a thick creamy white head. Light caramel malt with floral hops. In mouth, a crisp maltwith floral piney hops, rather short, but good. Trade with Piscator. Thanks Kris.

BeerandBlues2 (9355) - Hanover, Maryland, 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.

DJMonarch (9158) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2006

FatPhil (8995) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 17, 2009
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.

TwoSipDip (8880) - 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 Iíd buy again but itís not bad.

daknole (8851) - 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.

hopscotch (8776) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 13, 2002
The aroma is slightly malty. Notes of toffee and caramel. This crystal clear, deep amber beer has a small, white head. Mostly diminishing with excellent lacing. The flavor is perfectly balanced with bursts of caramel and butterscotch. Medium-length, dry finish with fresh cut fescue at the far end.

hopdog (8760) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 4, 2007
12oz bottle acquired in trade with kramer17801 (thanks!). Bottle labeled BB 031007. Poured a medium and slightly hazy orange color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of caramel and some citrus. Tastes of toasted malts, caramel, and some citrus. Drinkable but kinda boring.
