asheft (2760) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 22, 2009
[bottle] Citrusy caramel/toffee aroma that is reminiscent of a British ale, but with some continental noble hops. Clear reddish amber with a lacy, off-white cover. Sweet caramel flavour with some floral hops. Significant bitterness that is in balance with the medium body and sweetness. Slightly metallic like a British bitter. Only a little nutty with notes of toffee and less citrusy than the aroma. Moderate to medium carbobnation. Lasting nutty bitter finish.

omhper (21755) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 9, 2009
Bottled, thanks oh6gdx! Clear copper colour, rich but brief head. Aroma of dust, honey and vegetables. Sweetish with industrial sharp and unfirm malt character. Flavour of boiled vegetables all the way to a dusty finish with some stale butter.

darkseduction (664) - Zweibrücken, GERMANY - MAR 1, 2009
Swing-Top Bottle 50cl .Very nice green belle-epoque bottle. Pours an amber coloured reddish brew with fine but small head. Decent top fermenting yeast sourness, elegant and refined malt body, nice hoppy dryness. Allover a very balanced and interesting brew.

Fin (8533) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2009
Bottle that I ordered in mixed box from Beers of Europe Pours chesnut brown with a nice bubbly head. Good malty beer, little drying, some safe bitterness. The aroma is malty with some candy but its not a big aroma. Taste is also a bit chewy with a lot of toffee, Loz gets copper coin. Its similar to a UK ESB at times, good beer. A6 A5 F6 P4 OV14 3.5

Flear copper with an offwhite head. Hay aroma. Good gingerbread and grassy hop flavours, but somewhat metallic towards the finish. Quite alright.

oh6gdx (23131) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 9, 2009
Bottled (thanks fonefan!). Deep amber colour, small off-white head. Leaves some lace. Aroma is wood, bread, some slight grassyness as well as wet-earthcelllar-like-stuff. Flavour is caramel malts, some sweet wood and mild notes of salt water. A quite nice, refreshing and wellbalanced brew. Hard to tell an exact style for this.

TBone (14613) - Pori, FINLAND - JAN 9, 2009
Bottled, swing top (BB 02/2009). Dark chesnut color, steady creamy off-white head, lace. Grassy, slightly caramelly malty aroma. Dark Ceylon tea, caramel, toasted sugar, grassy hoppyness. Kind of altbier-like, interesting, more like a lager than an ale.

harrisoni (15643) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2009
500ml bottle from Real, Munchengladbach. Chestnut colour with a huge beige head. Wow, what an odd beer. Not sure what it is. A bitter? Bready aroma, some malt and earthy hop. Is this a bitter, alt, dunkel? Interesting. Not great.. Good hop stinging on the finish. Quite rounded, decent hop on end. If I had this in an English pub I would call it a competent best bitter.

Clear deep amber with a medium off white head. Sweet breadish aroma with roasted malt and caramel notes. Breadish flavour wiht caramel notes. Somewhat strange this one. Not my thing

stryk (30) - Farsta, SWEDEN - DEC 14, 2008
Half litre bottle. Nose is hay and grass with spices and citrus waiting in the background. Medium bitterness, pretty smooth taste with a light to medium hoppy bite and light sweetness. Drinkable and pretty well balanced too. Cheers
