SaintMatty (6069) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAY 3, 2008
500ml bottle- Amber in colour with a malty and hoppy nose with grapefruit,orange,lemon and grain being detected. A rather refreshing and zingy taste with the hops again being noticeable although rather sterile. Not bad and refreshing in the summer.

UPDATED: OCT 26, 2009 Bottled. An orange coloured beer with no head. Some hoppy notes in both the nose and the mouth. Citric fruit notes particularly orange. Noticeably pasteurized but minimal cardboard. A little puke when it hits the roof of the mouth, but mellows out. Itís Sheps, enough said really.Score 2.9

TET (2207) - Kaarina, FINLAND - JAN 26, 2008
Orange beer with thin white head. There are hops and grass in the aroma but it is not very pleasant. Flavour is very bitter but it is not aromatic. Quite nice to drink. Typical body with simple hoppiness is not very interesting.

MBison (548) - Southern Highlands, AUSTRALIA - JAN 4, 2008
Bottle (500ml). Poured a deep orange with a small, creamy, off-white head which was mostly lasting. Aroma was hoppy, with plenty of orange citrus, marmalade and light vanilla in the back. Taste was of grassy hops backed up by a good amount of caramel with some more citrus and light butterscotch. Medium bodied with a watery texture, soft carbonation and a decent dry hoppy finish.

sm89walt (1827) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 29, 2007
Bottle. A clear, light orange colour with a rather small white head. The aroma is quite subdued but itís floral hoppiness is good when you get a full amount of it. The flavours are malty in a basic form but are reliable and consistent. Solid grassy and nutty finish with a lasting bitterness and a hint of biscuit. Not groundbreaking, but highly commendable.

davidpl (435) - Santiago, CHILE - DEC 24, 2007
Appearance: copper color. Great head, rocky, ivory color, and medium persistency. Aroma: caramel malts, butter, vanilla, peaches and bananaís smells. Slight yeastís touch. Light aromatic hoppyness with dried-herbs note like hay. Nuts and almonds. Flavor: caramels barley start and nutty progress. Ephemeral fruitiness similar to peaches and bananaís reminiscences from yeast. Lasting dry-final from hops, with intensive dried-herb touch like hay and chamomile. Nutty and candy malts aftertaste. Palate: medium body with slightly rough texture. Medium carbonated. Nice nutty and dried-herbs (maybe from Gemís hops) touches in noose and mouth. With own character.

FatPhil (11544) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 13, 2007
500ml bottle. Light orange, tiny head. Aroma of lightly roasted malts. Feels nice in the mouth. Simple malty taste, nothing clever, but solid, and with a good long bitter aftertaste. Tasty.

Pale refreshing brew with nice hoppiness. Kind of like a bitter with IPA qualities.
