harrisoni (13162) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2005
Bottle from Auchan, Calais. Golden beer, no head. Nice fruity hoppy nose. Some syrupy sweetness is evident. Extremely carbonated and actually quite hard to swallow due to this. Golden syrup flavours in mouth and then some hop on the end which is both herby and sweet tangerine. Just a tad too strong for me.

yngwie (13108) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 20, 2007
Bottle. Slightly hazy, golden-orange body with a medium, dense, white head on top. There’s some floaties in the beer, and a very lively carbonation, causing the floaties to swirl rapidly from bottom to top to bottom and so on. There’s nice lacings forming too. The nose is very fruity, with a good dash of alcohol, lots of dried fruits, some spicyness, a little pale malt, and a little hoppy note. There’s also some beef-stock like aromas, more common in darker beers. Flavorwise it is quite bitter, but the sweetness of course hits first. Fruits, mostly yellow apples, spicyness, alcohol, some pale malt and dried fruits are other things that comes to mind. A slight alcohol burn in the mouth, quite full bodied. Finishes with some alcohol, a good bitterness and sweetness, pale malt and fruityness. And it lasts for a long time. Well suited as a night cap or a relaxing beer earlier in the evening. 11% ABV is a bit strong if one wants more than one or two beers, but for the forementioned purposes, it works just fine. Not refreshing, not quenching, but surely enjoyable. (071120)

(750ml bottle, Jan 2004 vintage) Pours a lightly cloudy golden body with a medium-sized white head. Aroma of mustiness, orange peel, and florals. Flavor of spicy yeast and light citrus.

argo0 (11317) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 23, 2002
Golden, slightly hazy body, with minimal head. Aroma is sweet (bubblegum), fruity (apricot) and slightly spicy/yeasty. Flavor is sweet bubblegum, spice, but still fairly well balanced. The alcohol is nicly warming for the most part, but it asserts itself at the swallow, causing a moderate burn.

thewolf (11101) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 12, 2008
Bottle, bought @ YNWA, Kolding.
Pours clear golden with a small very white creamy head - low duration. Aroma is pleasantly bready malts, some yeast and lightly vinious. A bit of exotic fruit notes as well. Quite high carbonation, but still quite creamy palate. Super sweetness, and very soft feel. Lots of chewy malts, light fruitiness and well-balanced alcohol. Good yeast tones as well.

Christian (11021) - Odense, DENMARK - MAR 14, 2013
Golden with a small white head. Yeasty aroma with an earthy touch. Dryish yeasty flavour with notable alcohol. Technically well balanced with well hidden alcohol, it’s just not my kind of beer
