Cask, Wetherspoons Edinburgh: Clear Amber medium head, mild hoppiness & malty nose. Slightly crisp aftertaste with a hint of sweetness. A decent session beer but it lacks body.

HenrikSoegaard (10720) - Randers, DENMARK - MAR 7, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 16, 2005 Week aroma, but nice brown colour, no head, but the flavour is OK with long finish. It is a very bitter ale.

bark (255) - Linköping, SWEDEN - FEB 1, 2005
Bottle. The liquid is clear; the colour is red-brown with a tint of wine-red. The foam is beige, two fingers thick but not very stable.

The (rather mild) smell got notes of brown sugar, tobacco, raisins and a gentle sourishness. It is not as bitter as I had expected, and it reminded me more of an ale from cask than from bottle.

The carbonation is peculiar for fine ales – not to sharp, not stale.

The taste is somewhat roasted with a dry, rather mild body. There is some diacetyl and a hint of salt. The bitterness is rather simple and a bit metallic. The rather short aftertaste is medium bitter with a dry-sour-metallic bitterness and a perfumed touch of brown sugar (although it is not very sweet).

A little unbalanced, but nevertheless a good beer.

Ungstrup (29665) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 30, 2004
An amber beer with no head. The aroma is sweet with primary notes of caramel. The flavor is dry hoppy combined with notes of caramel, while the body is thin.
