UPDATED: JAN 10, 2009 <i>2008-10-21, cask conditioned at The Kings Arms, London, 7-4-7-4-14=36</i>
The aroma is also a bit cheesy, interesting. Good Bitter, good caramel flavor and quite good hopping, surely quite strong.

<i>2008-03-03, cask conditioned at Rover, Göteborg, 7-4-6-3-14=34</i>
It has a light amber color and a persistent layer of foam. The aroma is good, malty and fruity too, with a lot of nice caramel or fudge. The flavor has basic caramel, less interesting than I expected by the aroma. It has a strong bitterness, with some resins in the end. Ordinary Bitter, but still better than most of the latest ones I had in Copenhagen.

<i>2008-02-15, cask conditioned at Charlie’s Pub, Copenhagen, 7-4-7-4-14=36</i>
Amber color, frothy head. A pleasant Ale, quite refreshing and earthy, with good caramel/toffee flavor and strong bitterness. Well brewed, well balanced, good.
