Holmen2 (2873) - NORWAY - MAY 7, 2015
From cask at Albert Square Chop House, 07.05.15. Pale clear golden. Dense and persistent white head. Soft and moderate aroma of pale malt and fine hops. Good drinkability, but quite anonymous.

Cask @ National Winter Ales Festival 2009. A golden beer with an off-white head. The aroma has notes of malt and light notes of caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and caramel as well as lighter notes of grain and sulphur.

imdownthepub (13246) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2009
Bottled, 500ml, pasteurised, many thanks Yvonne. Orange amber with white head. Fairly straightforward pasteurised bitter,slightly tinny sharp initially with a caramel note, then a slightly sweet note leading to a cooked vegetable finish. Not as bad as it sounds, in fact it’s reasonable.

Clear light to medium yellow orange color with a small to average, frothy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white to white head. Aroma is light to moderate malty, toasted, fruity. Flavor is moderate sweet and light light bitter with a average duration. Body is medium to light, texture is watery to oily, carbonation is flat to soft. [20090124]

bobinlondon (1288) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2009
Bottle from a tied house. Amber with a short lived white head. A rather dull beer with a dry malty characture, few hops and a metalic bitterness.Couldn’t detect any woody notes. Reminds me somewhat of Youngers Tartan. Yes it’s really that good!!

omhper (23513) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 3, 2008
Bottled at Monk’s Café, Stockholm. Lightly hazy pale amber, rocky head. Light soapy grassy nose. Light bodied. Very dry with crisp rounded mouthfeel. Caramel wakes up as it warms - the promised oaky undertones are very vague if there at all. FIniishes with hop induced bitterness. A very drinkable bitter.

DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2008
Cask in the statebar. Aroma is sweet and malty, hints of maple syrup, apple notes and small grassyness. Taste is similar again on the sweet side and not really what i was expecting, apple notes throughout.

beervis (243) - Taylor’s Country, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 26, 2007
Pours appealing deep gold with foamy white head, well carbonated. Aroma apple/pear, sweet malt. Smooth and light on the palate, more sweet light malt and fruit flavours, balanced by a dry woody note. Finish dry and lightly sweet. Not bad at all.
