mighty_meadow (305) - Kilwinning, SCOTLAND - NOV 29, 2014
500ml bottle from Tesco. Flavour is a bit thin but all the spices are there plus some orange zest. Definitely tastes like ’clootie’ but would benefit from having a bit more depth in flavour.

Holmen1 (4120) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAY 30, 2014
Flaske delt med importør Ovesen: kobberfarget med gardinskum. Smak og aroma har et visst appelsinpreg med litt krydder forsiktig i bakgrunnen, alt ganske kledelg og bidrar til at den er lettdrikkelig. Heller lavt karbonert men fin munnfølelse. Den forsiktige bitterheten og behagelige ettersmaken gjør også sitt til at den er lett å helle innpå - en god session bitter med lav voltstyrke.

yngwie (16045) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 18, 2014
Bottle. It pours an almost clear body, golden in color and with a small, dense, off-white to light beige head. Ginger, cardamom, cloves and some malts in the aroma. Sort of cake-like. The flavor is pretty much the same, with some bitterness and a little sweetness. Mostly dry though, with a pleasant carbonation level. Medium body. Not as spiced in the finish as it is in the aroma, I think that’s probably unfortunate. Sure drinkable, but boring. 140418

Oakes (14042) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 11, 2014
Brownish-amber. Not much head. Spicy aroma is vaguely gingery with a bit if cinnamon. It has a fairly full body for the alcohol level, and the palate is light, sweetish and approachable, with ginger as the main characteristic. The finish has some slightly biscuity amber malts as well. Decent spiced ale.
