Bottled. Alehouse Bottle Share, 2nd June 2015. Golden appeaeance. Descent white lacing. Loads of barely on aroma, nice musty aroma but in a good way. Lime cordial juice too. Taste is lemons, light bitterness, lime cordial, tart oranges and some perfume. Incredibly light for the abv. Really drinkable.

Keg at Tap East Anniversary Party. It pours a hazy orange body with a small white head. Aroma is fruity and hoppy with light spiciness. Taste is quite zesty with light fruity note. Quite dry finish. Good

Theydon_Bois (12595) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2013
Keg at the Rake, Borough, 21/12/13. Lightly hazed golden with a thin off white covering. Nose is light booze, caramel, sugar, soft bread dough. Taste comprises dark fruits, caramelised sugars, candyfloss, caramel. Medium bodied with a little bite, moderate carbonation. Ok stuff but lacks a little depth.

Keg at Lovibonds, 8th September 2013, 8.3 ABV, apparently according to bar tender. Drank below the ABV, not my kind of beer, ok, could not drink a pint

Scopey (8832) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2013
Bottle from Utobeer, shared with some Aberdonians! It pours clear golden amber with a small off-white head. The nose is caramel, honey, sweet ripe fruits and wheat. The taste is also fairly sweet...caramelised banana, apple, sugar, bread, wheat and a touch of alcohol warmth. Medium body, fine carbonation and syrupy carbonation. A bit too sweet and not a whole lot too it. OK at best.

Beersiveknown (3844) - NORTHERN IRELAND - SEP 9, 2012
bottle BBE sept 2009, courtesy of Tale of Ale, thanks Reuben! Dark Orange with fluffy off-white head that collapses to a lacing. Banana yeast and satsuma on the nose with a touch of salicylic acid/ phenol at the end. Medium carbonation, heavy body, cloyingly so as it warms and rich honey finish.

Clear amber beer. Low carbonation. Soft palate. Sweet sweet malt with a little caramel. Some repressed sweet fruits. Just a very sweet and simple beer. Dessert beer? Drinkable!

larsga (6676) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 15, 2012
Medium offwhite head doesn’t last. Clear amber body with light carbonation. Mealy honey and dried fruit aroma with papery resiny notes. Dry-sweet honeyish resiny old books taste with syrupy funky notes. Fullish body. Mild, soft, mealy mouthfeel. Dry honeyish resiny old books aftertaste with fruity notes. Lovely! Like a really good vintage beer, which I guess it partly is. (0.75l bottle from beermerchants. Label said best before end of 2010.)

gunnar (6356) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUL 3, 2011
Bottle from Beermerchants. Pours clear golden with a big white head, disappears fast. Aroma of honey, caramel and wheat. Taste is sweet, marmelade and honey, ends quite fast, with a light alcohol bite.

mcberko (9224) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 3, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 1, 2011 750mL bottle, pours pale golden orange. Aroma of wheat, caramel and apples. Flavour is sort of an amplified apple juice, with wheat and candied sugar as well. Quite decent.
