Theydon_Bois (7904) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2013
Cask at the Anderson, Fortrose, 19/10/13. Clear dark amber with a moderate off white head. Nose carries a fruity tang, malts, classic twiggy affair. Taste comprises apple skins, bready malts, orchard fruit. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, dry bitter finish. Mediocre old school bitter type thing ... yawn!

Cask at Bree Louise. Amber coloured, very clear, with small white head. Aroma is sweet and grainy. Taste, same. Not very exciting.

Cask by handpump at State Bar, Glasgow (23 Jan 12) - amber ale with small off-white head and caramel malt aroma, sweetish with a hint of caramel but well balanced, oily feel

JorgeLee (1137) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2012
Cask at the Golden Eagle, W1. Caveat to this review as I don’t think this beer was served in optimal condition - it wasn’t very nice. Pale golden colour, but dominant flavour of earthy, musty hoppy bitterness. Would love to re-rate as it seems my review is way off track, but this is what I had...

Ungstrup (29051) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 14, 2011
Bottled. An amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of flowery hops. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and elderflowers.

Quack-Duck (7728) - Down South, GERMANY - DEC 30, 2010
bottle. Slightly hazy amber-golden colour, tiny head. Fruity-hoppy nose. Light malty base with lots of hops, some of it rather medicinal. The malty base does not really balance the hops, it’s bitter-sweet, but I don’t really like the medicinal bitterness of the hops.

pivnizub (8729) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - MAY 12, 2010
Bottle (thanx to Q.-D.!): A bit unclear,copper coloured, no head to speak of; moderate dry hoppy and fruity nose with a little metallic touch; moderate to robust dry bitter flavour, a little sweetness underneath, light to medium bodied, quite soft; lingering hoppy and fruity finish - maybe with traces of liquorice. Good........

MoritzF (8389) - Bochum, GERMANY - APR 28, 2010
(bottle) Hazy, chestnut-brown colour without head. Moderately sweet malty and fruity, slightly floral and woody hoppy aroma. Quite bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a soft carbonation. Dry and soft malty taste with an aromatic hops character with fruity and woody, also slightly floral accents; dry and moderately bitter hoppy finish. Balanced and quaffable stuff. 28.IV.10

DruncanVeasey (7098) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2010
BC from Bath Waitrose. Muddy and swirling with bits; settles down into a red-orange glow with a cream halo. Slightly agricultural aroma dappling with wet earth and cowpat until the lily, cinder toffee and juicy orange hop kicks in. Sloppy but enjoyable; layered earthy malts, toasted nuts, orange and grapefruit, chocolate liqueur, wood. Quite a skilled blending of herbal English and juicy US hops; yeasty dampness and nuts freshened up with hop zest. Building shampoo bitterness not dissipating with the swallow. Rustic and good.
