Bottle at home ... Golden orange ... fruity hop ... musty dry hop ... little biscuity ... little citrus. Doesnt seem that balanced... I wouldnt ruin a good Haggis with this.

harrisoni (13577) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2006
500ml bottle from Sainsbury. Donít know if they have changed the recipe or what, but Iím right with Magic Dave on this one. I have been so accustomed to Harviestounís use of US hops it was nice to have something else from them and for once a pasteurised beer was really good. Very pale copper colour with lasting white head. Earthy hop with fragrant EKG coming through. Some faint gingerish caramel. Mix of soft malts and nice citric hop with gtrapefruit and excellent dryness. Good complex hops on both the aroma and in the flavour and lasting into the finish. Lovely intense juicy rapefruit. Really impressed with the hops on this. Some dustiness too.

imdownthepub (10125) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2005
Bottled, pasteurised, 500ml. Orange ambr beer with high carbonation and fizzed head. Thin bodied pale ale, over carbonated, with a thin malt flavour. Little of the expected hop note, pretty disapointing.

maeib (8640) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2005
Bottled. An amber coloured beer with a hoppy aroma with fruity notes of tangerines and oranges, but also a bit of a stale sulphuric backdrop. The taste has good hop character but also some maltiness at the end. A good effort but really doesnít taste particularly fresh.

leaparsons (8032) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2006
Bottle. Amber/gold with a small white head. Aromas are fresh pine and grapefruit with earthy hops and spices. Fairly sweet caramel malts. Flavours are spiced oranges and citrus with sweet grapefruit. Some caramel malts with nice peppery and bitter hops. Good stuff.
