From can. Pours brown with a creamy off-white head. Odd vinous aroma. Taste is creamy, paint thiner and dull hops. Slight alcohol twinge witch is wierd being only 3.8%. This stuff would be best on the cask I assume.

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 24, 2005
Tasted 24/01/2005. 660ml bottle from New World, Lower Hutt (great beer selection here!). Pours a coppery brown with thin white pillow of head. Nice english hop aroma (guessing Goldings), slightly spicy and earthy but mostly grassy. Strong bitterness is well balanced by smooth malty flavour and pleasant low-carbonated mouthfeel. Palate is slightly oil, probably from the generous hopping. Very low strength an IPA, more like a hoppy bitter.

Ehh, drinkable. If treated like a mild, this beer is nice, very nice. Just donít go expecting a west coast IPA out of this thing. Not sure if 3.8% really protected it all the way to the East Indies, but given that most beers in Britain are much weaker when served on cask and locally, Iím sure the "export" was much more potent and Iím curious to taste it, as this beer is nice, just a bit too mild.

Can at a british run joint in Santo Domingo. Very drinkable bitter; classic nutty taste, carbonation and mouth feel.

Light red copper with thin white head. Mix of fresh floral hops and skunk in aroma. Fresh malts and floral hops with a bit of peppers. Lighter bodied.

Iíve had this cask conditioned a number of times and havenít been impressed. This time it was bottled from Sainsburyís. Pastuerised, filtered, it should have been worse than the draught, but wasnít. Tasted fresh, with better hop character than I remember. Little, diminishing head, medium mouthfeel, mildly bitter finish.

Amber colour with small off-white head. Aroma has got grassy touch, with some spices and hops. Flavor has some orange, a touch of caramel and a bitter hoppy finish.

Flowery hops scent the sweet cider under...Stale resin resides in the watery body and a flat dimension overtakes everything...Hoppy vacuity is still vacuity...

Flowers peek out from beneath the mildly skunky aroma. Dark copper coloured with thin white head that diminishes to ring. Floral hops, some pepper... mainly fairly bland and a bit papery. Mildly effervescent. Despite all precautions taken to ensure this was sampled fresh after being hand delivered from the UK, it still seems like itís not at itís best. Clear bottle sampled with Lubiere, MartinT, muzzlehatch and Rastacouere.
