yespr (29687) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAY 11, 2008
50 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden orange with a dense/creamy off-white head. Light hoppy and caramel malt aroma. Flavour is light hoppy at first before a nice breadish malt flavour takes over. Light fruity hops flavour before and into the finish. Nicely balanced in the end.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 2, 2005
An amber beer with a huge creamy light brown head. The aroma is sweet with notes of yeast and caramel. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of caramel and fruit, and with a slightly sticky mouthfeel.

oh6gdx (20004) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 18, 2005
Bottled. Copper coloured, big white foamy head. Fruity bitter aroma. Bitter fruity flavour with sweetish finish. Makes mouth a bit sticky. Local pub (Public Corner) seems to enjoy taking in British bitters...

2002-11-25, Bottle, 7-4-5-3-11=30
Beautiful red-amber color and cap. Nice hop aroma, with some fruitness. Average body, not impressive, some metallic sensation. Strong bitter final, with no aroma. Not interesting.

Dedollewaitor (13390) - Odense, DENMARK - SEP 12, 2006
Can: See through nut brown with no head. Watery body. Little carbonation. Malty sweetness. Ok pleasant but nothing exciting. In all ways a typical British ale.
