Bottle, 330ml. Clear golden colour with a medium-sized head. Aroma is floral hop with sweet banana, caramel, peach and a touch of malt. A really great, strong aroma. Taste is hoppy with banana notes and some strong biscuity, malty caramel notes. Some herbal notes too. A somewhat sweet, malty finish. A great beer - delicious.

Bottle. Orange appearance with a gentle carbonation. Small head, hoppy and quite fruity.Very easy to drink with its strength cleverly hide. A good attempt at making a beer that is different. Recommended.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Poured a golden amber color ale with a large pure white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of medium sweet malt with nice floral undertones and some wild dry hops are also noticeable. Taste is a very delicate and refined mix between some lightly sweet floral malt with some grassy wild dry hops. Very well balance with great mix between malt backbone and hop profile with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Very drinkable and well done though even more hop profile would have benefited this beer.

This beerís quite a gem. I experienced it something like a cross between ORVAL and Anchor Liberty Ale Ė for me, two of the greats. Fennel flavour was barely detectable, possibly contributing to some of the Orvalness. Beautiful layered flavour profile and long finish.

Yellow colour. Head crawls down with the beer. Fruity citrusy. Refreshing bottle a bit flowery didn’t quite catch the fennel. Will be back for more though

Given to me, along with a load of other interesting beers for doing a Christian Fellowship quiz night. Iíll offer again if they pay this sort of wage!
Brown 330ml bottle, best before 29th June 2009, drank 6th March 2008.
Poured into a Corsendonk stemmed Tulip glass.
Because it is bottle conditioned I poured it very slowly and carefully. I was rewarded with a lovely looking, clear, Old Gold coloured beer with a large, snow white head. Plenty of bubbles rising upwards to the head indicated a lot of carbonisation. I think this is the first time I have given a 5 for appearance (in almost 400 beers reviewed).
The bottle claims Wild Fennel has been used to flavour the beer, I couldnít detect any in the aroma, only yeast esters and some barley and wheat notes.
Tangy and sharp taste, again no hint of fennel for me, more of a ginger style heat bite to it. There is a warmth to the beer thatís for sure. 3 Months of maturing has added something to the beer, it has Duvel type feel to it.
The warmth stays and so does the tartness of the intial taste. The 6.8% rests easy within the beer too, making it a very pleasant drink in deed.
I liked this a lot, a very good beer and very un-English in its style.

Bottle, bought @ YNWA, Kolding.
Pours clear golden with a good, creamy white head. Good duration. Aroma is sweet and grainy with some pine hops and a peach-like edge to it. High and lively carbonation, making it wonderfully fresh. Swet, lightly hopped flavour with notes of biscuit, apples, crispy malts, grass and pine. Great!

Bottle, from my dear mother, Sainsburys Taplow. I think Rick Stein has definitely won the battle of the tv chefs when it comes to beer ! This pisses on fearnley- cottage bloke’s crap nettle effort.
Poured a slightly hazy golden with a good lingering creamy white head. . Aroma was sweet with some pine hops and fruit. Fairly lively carbonation. Sweetish, lightly hopped flavour with piney, fruit and hop notes. Quite complex, with good strength. Very refreshing and a really top effort. Would definitely try again...Woof woof !
