Gold on the eye, fizzy strong white head. Vanilla on the nose. Very watery taste, almost no finish. Nice bottle cap - forgettable otherwise.

larsga (6177) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 19, 2014
Medium offwhite head. Clear pale coppery body with light carbonation. Nutty caramelly floral aroma with spicy notes. Sweetish metallic nutty caramelly taste with spicy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish spicy fruity caramelly aftertaste with metallic notes. Nice, drinkable, and suspiciously similar to Spitfire. (0.5l bottle, from Meny Strømmen Storsenter.)

Cybion (61) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUL 14, 2014
Bottle, 500 ml. Pours clear golden amber with some long lasting soapy white head. Fairly decent aroma of honey and cereal malts, with a slight metallic edge. Taste of stale honey, slightly damp bread with a small edge of hoppy citrus. Bit of a watery texture but body isn’t too thin and carbonation isn’t excessive. Nothing great by any means but far from offensive.

OleR (4801) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 10, 2014
A firm platina blond head, atop a clear brown-shaded golden body. Discreet but pleasant aroma of toasty and light bisuity malts. Some subtle fruitiness, but not much hop aroma. Healthy body for a 4 percenter. Taste is semi-dry, with lightly toasted malts and a fine underlying fruity/earthy bitterness. Drinks good, this one. I hope I’ll someday get a chance to taste it from a well kept cask. [0.5 l clear bottle, puchased at my local Meny]

downender (6236) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2014
Bottle from Gardiner & Haskins, Bristol. Deep gold with a, slight white, head. Sweet, cereal mlats, a touch of boiled sweet and soggy cardboard, grassy hop and moderately bitter finish. Not very nice.

Rune (7988) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 2, 2014
500ml bottle kindly shared by Finn. Clear golden-brown coloured body to a low, but stable, bubbly, white head. Dotted spots to the glass. Characteristic aromas of caramel, bread, and leafy hops. Similar malt-fruity taste of leafy hops mixed with brown malts leading to a smooth and dry bittersweet ending. Foamy in the mouth. Fine bodied considering the low abv. Good drinking (at Finns in Tromsø, 25.06.2014).

Mr_Pink_152 (640) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JUN 29, 2014
500ml bottle from local supermarket. Colour is mod amber. With a thin white head. The aroma is malt and grassy hop. The flavour is slightly bitter and woody.
