Ungstrup (29224) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 14, 2004
A hazy orange beer with a small disappearing beige head. The aroma is sweet with notes of peach and hints of strawberries. The flavor is sweet and sour with notes of garlic. A weird beer.

UPDATED: APR 2, 2003 Draught
Light amber color. Poor aroma. Pretty smooth, a residual sweetness and some caramel, but not enough malty nor hoppy.

Oakes (12398) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 8, 2003
Amber; aroma shows ringwood yeast, herbal hop, caramel. Straightforward English ale - a step up from Bass and Double Diamond but along the same lines.

Travlr (11214) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 11, 2012
This bottle brought back memories, since the cask version was one of the first real ales I ever tried, at the Waggon and Horses in Newmarket. The U.S. version is a clear deep golden color, small white head and solid lacing. Aroma is slightly sour citrus, straw, white bread. Taste is slightly more bitter and peppery than its British forebear, with a dry and lager-like finish.

12 oz bottle-pours a foamy offwhite head with copper color. Aroma is slightly sweet medium malt, pine. Taste is slightly sweet medium malt, pine, hops with a flatness in the aftertaste.

bhensonb (10970) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 17, 2006
Lightly rich malty aroma. Amber color. Vanishing white head. Starts with spiced malt, followed by hop, then a bit of floral and malt. Medium mouthfeel. Some nutty character develops. Unusual for the English or the Americans. Unique. Nicely balanced finish.

Leighton (10803) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2010
Bottle. An OK beer. Pours a murky gold-brown with a fast-fading, white head. Light malt aroma, some faint caramel. Flavor has moderate sweetness, some grass notes, mild bitterness in the finish. Medium body with light carbonation. Certainly drinkable.
