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 banana’s smells. Slight yeast’s 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 banana’s 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 Gem’s hops) touches in noose and mouth. With own character.

FatPhil (10324) - 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.

oteyj (2130) - New Hampshire, USA - DEC 3, 2007
Pale refreshing brew with nice hoppiness. Kind of like a bitter with IPA qualities.

mabel (7059) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 13, 2007
[648-20070921] 500mL. Aroma has a bit of unpleasant skunky hay. Clear, orange amber body with a medium-lasting creamy white head. Toasted cereal flavour still holds hints of skunk. Medium body. Unimpressive in clear bottles.

MiP (14141) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 7, 2007
Bottle, 4.5%. Weak fruit aroma. Clear orange colour. Very small white head. Medium bitterness, with a hint of fruit and yeast. Not spectacular, but in good balance and süffig.

Moz (613) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - OCT 16, 2007
Bottle. Amber colour with a small off-white head. Aroma of hops and peppermint. Slightly watery mouthfeel, but with an ok bitterness.

mugabe (258) - SWEDEN - SEP 23, 2007
Bottle. Pours a hazy honey with frothy head. Faint flowery aroma. Rather faint taste and weak body as well, metallic finish with a rather nice hoppy bitterness. Rather bland overall, though.

HogTownHarry (6199) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 17, 2007
Bottle (500ml - clear). From Waitrose. Clear bubbly gold, good-sized creamy off-white head. The aroma’s pretty bland, grassy, somewhat dry, a little sweet - but it does have that slight eau-de-skunk, even a touch of metal - and I did take it from the back of the shelf, it was out of the lights. The taste is a touch metallic, there’s dry yeast, slightly sour biscuit malt, grassy, pungent, only slightly skunky hops. Very weak body, a little pungency left on the tongue, the actual taste fades pretty quickly. Somewhere on the "meh" to "neh" scale.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2007
A Mes rate: Bottle, present from Sim’s mum. Orangey coloured beer in the classy Sheps clear bottle. Slightly floral with a touch of dicetyl. Very dull. Not at all great.
