Yeah itís okay....iíve just had brewers gold so everything is a bit of a downer now....cascade hops apparently but iím not sure if theyíre used in the right way, not much aroma and not much flavour really, good malt background but really misses the flavour of a really good hop!

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2009 2009-06-16, Cask Conditioned at Oliver Twist, Stockholm, 6-3-4-2-9=24
Amber color, still. Initially the aroma shows some good hop, but it quickly disappears. Very light caramel flavor, soft mouthfeel also because of the missing carbonation, correct bitterness. Absolutely anonymous.

Nice amber color. Simple Bitter, reasonable caramel flavor and bitterness, too light aroma (maybe a bit floreal), but also a light metallic touch. Too easy.
