BCA. Opaque orange colour with a decent off-white head. Aroma of grassy hops and some chunky malt. The flavour had some more malt balanced by some earthy, orange hops. A drinkable session beer.

Thanks to geth_in_beer for this one. Golden-orange beer with a thin white head. Aroma is lightly herbal, a bit grassy. Light citrus rind as well. Warming brings out very light straw like malts. A bit of light caramel and honey. Thin palate and moderate bitterness. Decent enough but I sense that the hop flavour has headed south. It’s still a refreshing pint.

SilkTork (5187) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2007
Cambridge Fest. A solid, old fashioned session bitter with woody notes and a healthy English hop smack. Dirty crystal malt taste adds interest.

Gethinbeer (2141) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - APR 1, 2007
Bottle. Fresh citrus aroma. Quite carbonated. Slightly cloudy appearance with a thin head. Murky orange in colour. Refreshing beer, citrus fruits with a hint of honey. Good fresh finish. Inspired me to visit all 3 castles the beer is about, the day was good, just like the beer.

oh6gdx (20274) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAR 20, 2007
Bottled (thanks omhper). Hazy amberish golden colour with mediumsized white head. Aroma is flowery hops, caramel and a bit more hops. Flavour is dry grassy hops with some hayish notes. Dry, semibitter. Still feels a bit empty in flavour.

Marsiblursi (2999) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 13, 2007
(Bottle, thanks omhper) Pours amber with a big whith head. Bready malt and light floral, grassy, hay-ish hos in aroma with notes of plums. Clean, good malt flavour with floral and hay-ish notes. Light dry and bitter. Light to medium body.

omhper (19308) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 12, 2007
Bottled. Dark amber. Hay aroma, Medium dry with clean mouthfeel. Lots of hay-like hop resting on top a of a light body with some nice chewy malt. The malt character is really something extra, and the hops adds further pleasure. Finieshes with medium bitterness. Recommended!

Mungo (2472) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2006
BCA (From Southwick Brewhouse, BB Jan 07). A light lunchtime bitter with dusty hops and a light caramel edge to the malts. Quite pleasant and pretty good for a low abv bottle conditioned beer. My only complaint would be the slight hints of malty toastiness which were a little intrusive at times.
