Bottle at the Rake, Borough Market area, Lahndan tahn 21-06-08 Pours amber with slight off white head. There is a slight sourness on the nose also some faint tropical fruits linger in there. Tasty, fruity with a good rush of bitterness and citric edge to this I like it.

larsga (6314) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 23, 2008
Medium offwhite head does not last. Amber body. Fruity floral aroma with malty notes. Powerful dry-sweet taste of floral resin with dusty faintly roasty malt notes. Sharp, harsh mouthfeel. Bitter dandelion aftertaste. A bit on the sharp side, and a bit lacking in depth, but still good. (0.25l draft at Oluthuone Kaisla, Helsinki.)

Bov (9755) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAY 20, 2008
from crackedkettle.com - pours a cloudy dark red-amber colour under an elusive beige foam; nice lacing; aroma of litchies, almonds and cloves; initialy creamy mouthfeel but soon continues tart and sharply bitter; medium-bodied underneath; the finish is long, dry and very bitter with fruity and honeyish notes - a beautiful hoppy brew

SaintMatty (5526) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAR 12, 2008
Draught at Kaisla, Helsinki- Copper coloured with a small head. Malty and slightly fruit aroma. Malty and well balanced refreshing taste with raisins featuring. Nicely balanced and nice to have a beer which is not a hophead’s dream!

Ungstrup (29846) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 14, 2008
Bottled. An unclear copper colored beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of caramel and oranges. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of caramel and fruits - especially oranges, but also a light touch of hops, before a dry finish with a light touch of nuts sets in.
