Bottled. A golden beer with a lazing off-white head. The aroma is sweet with notes of spices, malt, and peaches. The falvor is sweet matly with notes of caramel cinnamon and elderberries, leading to a dry bitter finish.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 31, 2008
Cask at the Bricklayers Arms, 18th April 2008. Pure, clear amber with a fruity hop aroma. The taste is similar - apple, citrus and hop flavours swirl together on a smooth palate and a long bitter finish gives you time to enjoy them. A very nice bitter.

yespr (33249) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - NOV 21, 2007
50 cL bottle. Pours clear golden orange and with a diminished white head. Grainy and slight cardboardish to slight tobacco aroma. Flavour holds a nice chocolate smoothness, a mild bitterness and a somewhat herbal malt flavour. Finish holds a solid malt flavour, nicely roasted and with little bitterness.

cgarvieuk (15715) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 3, 2007
Bottle at home ... crisp golden orange ... light citric floral hop land a little caramel malt in nose ... soft light malt fruit front followed by orangy juicy hoppiness. but the hoppy linger is bit to drying for me.
