joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 22, 2002
Rich copper colour w/ small head. Mild aroma w/ light hops notes. Smooth feel but perhaps a little thin & watery. Not particularly complex. Malt & Fruit flavours that are again a little watery. Satifying finish, but not overyly bitter.

Nice English bitter hop aroma. Good body, bitterness is solid without being overwhelming.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - JUL 22, 2002
A newly tapped keg of this ended up being a beautiful winner. Creamy, spectacular bitter.

Radek Kliber (6457) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JUL 20, 2002
Cloudy, tea like brew. I like the fact that it was nicely made. At first sweet but later on turned into nice bitterness.
