1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Insipid on both the nose and the palate, and a not very substantial mouthfeel. Not something I’d be tempted to have again.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Big light brown head. Light brown body with light carbonation. Roasty nutty caramelly aroma with hoppy notes. Kind of weak. Dry watery roasty nutty taste. Quite sweet, too. Dry wooden hoppy aftertaste. Too much water for my taste. (0.5l bottle from gr0ve.)

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Copper-brown beer with weak blond head. Aroma is quite tastefull: malts, nuts, hops and some toffee. First mouthfull is nice and there are flavours but then everything disappear but maybe there are found malts, grass and bitter hops. Very thin and watery-like to drink. Very quickly disappering taste and watery palate spoils this beer and that is sad because there are some potency to make this better beer.

UPDATED: NOV 11, 2007 500ml bottle.
Dark orange, thin fluffy head. Simple english bitter aroma, hops and malt. Taste matches sweet and simple bitter, at times a little metallic. Presumably this was for the Swedish market.

500 ml bottle. Copper colour. Crystal clear. Medium-sized off-white fine-laced head that clings to the glass. Sweetish nutty and malty aroma with clean earthy hops. Crisp hop flavours. Mouthfeel is light and crisp, but also watery. Finishes somewhat empty because of the water. Drying grassy hops in the finish.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear copper colour. Frothy head. Subtle notes of sweet caramel and Kentish hops in aroma, but not much malt profile. Watery with bit of butterscotch, bit of toast malts and UK hops. Flavourwise very nice but oh so lacking in body. Nice light bitterness.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Clear copper colour, with a thin off-white head. Really not much malt aroma, just some burnt sugar notes, and grassy hops. Thin and watery, very bitter finish. The full strenght version is much better.
