4.2% gold colour with no head, hop aroma, as it says on the bottle, it is fresh and crisp, drank it along with too many more full bodied beers but it was still a reasonable beer.

Draughyt. Low fluffy off-white quickly disappearing head. Clear amber body. Weak honey fruity aroma. Weak honey fruity flavor with low carbonation and a short aftertaste.

joe19612 (1844) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2007
Bottle. poured a pale copper colour with a full white head. The aroma is of Goldings hops and crystal malt. The beer has plenty of body is full and has the properties of a bitter, light on malt with a strong bitter finish. A good beer to me.

FatPhil (9346) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 7, 2007
330ml bottle. Golden and sticky looking. Pours without a head if so desired. Superb bitter aroma, plenty nutty, some toffee-sweet. Enormous but well balanced flavour - spoilt a little with a mettalic tinge, but otherwise a fullsome malt and bitter combination. Moreish.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 22, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Dark golden with a handsome, rich head. Weak, nutty, malty flavours with a marked, bitter finish. Decent, but not really very premium... 310700

jimmack (1222) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - DEC 17, 2004
Hazy, dark amber color with a small, quickly dissipating white head. Aroma of toasted malts, caramel and bread. Mildly sweet malt and caramel flavor that quickly dries and finishes with a decent hop bitterness. Thanks to EddieG for the bottle.

boto (1850) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - DEC 14, 2004
11.2oz bottle: This one pours a almost clear, reddish-amber color. There was some off-white foam, but it subsides quickly. The aroma is faint, and all I can get is some caramel malt from it. The taste is OK, but rather uninspiring. I get some caramel sweetness, maybe some faint hops. Also faintly bready. Neither bad nor good. Just a beer.

Caramel aroma.Medium brown appearance with full head. Light malty caramel banana flavor with mild hops bitterness. Slight garbage aftertaste.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 3, 2004
Orange brown color with a tall dark cream colored head. Decent lace. English nose, with caramel, brown sugar, butterscotch, old wood and traditional hopsack. Initial toasty sweetness taken back by dry earthy wood flavor. Finish is dry and uneventful.
