MiP (13047) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 12, 2008
Bottle, 5.3%. Weak hop and yeast aroma. Hazy chestnut colour. Small tan ead. The flavour is light, but OK. Citric hops with a little yeast.

yngwie (12682) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 6, 2007
Bottle. Clear, chestnut body with a beige head. It has malt, hops and some spicyness in the aroma. In the mouth it is a bit soapy, medium fullness, and flavors of malt, some spices, nuts and hops. Spiced and hoppy finish as well. The beer is quite good, yet not my cup of tea. (070427)

Bottle. [thanks, bigbro]
Pours brownish red with a small, frothy, off-white head. Aroma has sweet caramel, light cardboard, good hops. Some piney notes. Medium carbonation, fine dryish mouthfeel. Flavour is quite hoppy, balanced well on a chewy caramel malts background. Piney, some slight fruitiness. Elegant, hoppy and well-balanced beer.

FatPhil (8601) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 23, 2009
500ml bottle (Alko, Helsinki)
Rich red, small head. Lovely fruity and fresh hoppy aroma, sweet caramel too, really jumps out of the glass. Pleasant carbonation, lively in the mouth. Sweet grainy body, but tons of crisp fresh sweet hops, even a little gingery in places. Finish is sticky both in a sugary and a resiny way, and that’s not a problem at all. Very worthy of the title ’English Strong Ale’ - this could give most ESAs a run for their money. Full of flavour, but a really tasty quaff.
