MichaelAwesome (6157) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - APR 25, 2014
Nice one. Hops with some malt, barley and even some fruity moments. Drinkable, bit thin and watery end. Nothing special, but an ok one.

mjs (5788) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 20, 2010
(Cask at Pineapple, London) A fruity and hoppy bitter. That’s something you seldom get. I liked this beer. The fruitiness and maltiness were nicely balanced and bitterness wiped both flavours away quite nicely. Bitterness didn’t last too long so the next sip brought all the other flavours back again.

UPDATED: NOV 2, 2010 Cask på Bree Louise, Euston 28 Sep 10. Rødbrun. Lavt stabilt svakt farget skum. Lovende fruktig aroma. Smaken er litt søt. Karamell. Forsiktig fruktig ettersmak med antydning til bitterhet.

Idiosynkrasie (5549) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAY 17, 2013
500ml bottle. Clear dark amber colour with small to average, frothy, half-way kasting, minimally lacing, white head. Fruity hoppy aroma has notes of Williams Christ pear, preserved yellow apple, a grainy touch. Taste is minimally sweet malty, hints of fruit, cautious herbal hoppy overtones, in the finish dry, husky.
