330mL. Pours a hazy orange with a decent, semi-rocky, creme head. Good lace. Aroma of grass, orange perfume, toffee, toast, light caramel, something a bit sickly. Taste is grassy bitter, dry, watery, soapy, light toast and cracker.

Draught@Monks Porterhouse, Stockholm (As Gippsland Bitter). Amber colour, small white head. Aroma is berries, wood and some slight fruityness. Flavour is the same with a pleasant bitterness to it. Quite pleasant, even though it’s rather berryish in the flavour.

Svesse (6297) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - NOV 6, 2010
(Draught at Monk’s Porterhouse, Stockholm, 2 Nov 2010) Golden amber colour with creamy, beige head. Malty nose with bread, buttery malt and cream toffee. Malty, slightly fruity taste with notes of bready malt, butter, cream toffee and a mild citric bitterness in the finish. Light body, with a touch of sweetness. Nothing spectacular, but highly drinkable and quite tasty.

On tap at the White Horse, Parsons Green. Cloudy gold beer. Residual white head. Dry palate. Dry malt with a touch of honey and some very unwelcome sulphur. Minerals. A bit of orange hop and a mildly bitter aftertaste. Finishes dry. Drinkable depite the suphur.

Tap at the White Horse Pub, London. Pours a light, hazy amber with a soft, white head. Delicate hop aroma with some bread. Lightly sweet, with ome grass and herbal bitterness. Light to medium in body with soft carbonation. Finihses with pale, bready malts and light, herby hops. Perhaps a little above average.

Davros (2041) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 27, 2010
Pours dark amber with a small head. Nose is extraordinarily malty, with loads of caramel, toffee and butterscotch. Similarly malty flavours before a challenging bitterness rolls through. Unfortunately its quite dull and almost metallic (the bitterness that is). Malt character is great though. A bit too watery.

ComradeK (1052) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - MAY 26, 2010
330ml bottle. It was a bit hard to judge its appearance and pour, since the bottle had clearly been shaken around somewhere, and exploded foam as soon as I opened it. Thus, it poured with a gigantic head. This settled (eventually!) into a pillowy head, lasting for the duration of the beer. The colour is a hazy mid-gold. The nose shows floral hops, with a fruity hint. Initially it is quite bitter, with pine resin notes. This shifts into a floral, slightly oily hop dominance in the middle, and a lingering fruity finish. A quality bitter, and I look forward to trying it again without the problems that hampered my first tasting!

Maris (1027) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - MAY 17, 2010
From a 330ml bottle on 17/5/2010. Has a slight but distinct burnt toffee aroma. In the mouth, it’s an unusual combination of sweet malt, spice and citrus, capped off by some quite firm and long hop action. This has quite a distinctive character, but is not a complete success.

imdownthepub (10662) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2010
Bottle conditioned, 330ml from Booths at Poulton, Lancs. Clouded amber to bronze with slight head. Great find in Booths, get yourselves along to one, unfortunately not fully settled out as it was quite lively on the pour. The beer proved to be sweeter than expected, quite fruity with a sweet strawberry note and a toffee caramel. Could have done with more hops, but reasonable drinking.
