FatPhil (9359) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 31, 2011
Cask (Cambridge Winter Ale Festival 2011)
Light orange. Not getting a huge aroma, to be honest. Has some of the aromas of more amber caramelly ales, but without too much sugary sweetness. Honey I guess. Soft smooth palte, carbonation low. Mostly malty body, and with a sweet finish. Really enjoyed it, but I think I’ve had better.

olsvammel (3066) - Örebro, SWEDEN - FEB 10, 2011
On tap at Oliver Twist in Stockhom. It poured a hazy golden liquid that cleared up, minimal white head. Mild flavour of pale bread and some milk/lactos. Smooth mouthfeel and light body. To mild for my taste, could use more hops and malt.

sm89walt (1756) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 29, 2011
Cask (gravity) - The Fat Cat, Norwich. Poured a clear, golden orange with a one finger, bubbly & doming white head. Caramel, yeast and some orangey mid fruits on the aroma. An orange sweetness and tang on the tongue, more yeast and a bit of earthiness. Light to medium body, soft on the palate with a short bittersweetness to the finish. A bit muddy in general but still drinkable.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - DEC 7, 2010
Gold with stable head. Mild, gin-like hop character in the aroma. Spicy with bright coriander and other herbs. A pleasantly hopped session beer.

Oakes (12612) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 9, 2010
Golden. Pedio nose with light toastiness. Toasty, with a fairly biscuity malt sweetness. Decent stuff.
