(Bottle, 0.5 l, from K Supermaker Kamppi, Helsinki) The beer poured deep amber and clear. Its head was quite small, white, bubbly and long lasting. Aroma had hops, grain, dry hay and grass. Palate was medium bodied and bit dry with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, grain, hops, grass, mild fruitiness, hint of sweetness and medium bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. Slight musty character both in aroma and in taste. Still a good hoppy bitter.

Tämä maanomistajan palliale on vaalean kuparinen. Vaahtoa ei juurikaan muodostu ja se mitä muodostuu, katoaa hyvin nopeasti. Tuoksu on kutsuvan hedelmäinen, keksimäinen ja kukkaisen humalainen. Raikas maku on myös kukkainen ja hedelmäinen. Oluessa on pienoinen katkera jälkimaku ja hiilihappoisuus on melko pontevaa. Hyvä olut.

MikeKeller (907) - Kemi, FINLAND - DEC 22, 2010
Bottle from K-supermarket Kamppi. Clear amber colour with beautiful creamy head. Caramel malty and grassy hoppy aroma. Taste is fairly bitter with some toffee notes. Smooth beer, I enjoyed this one!

Threepwood (107) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 12, 2010
Clear deep orange with a thin lasting head. Aromas are subtle, some spiciness and citrus fruits. Flavour was a real let down, harsh biting bitterness followed by a tart almost medicinal flavour in the finish. I dont think this bottle has traveled well at all.

ComradeK (1060) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - NOV 7, 2010
500ml bottle. Pours a clear amber, with a small, rapidly fading head. The aroma is an inviting mix of sweet malt characteristics, mainly toffee and caramel. There are some pepper and citrus hops to begin, with burnt caramel in the middle and a finish that blends caramel and pine. A quality bitter, and a satisfying ale.

dynamiteninja (1654) - Richmond, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2010
Bottle. Biscuity malt, plenty of sharp bitter hops. Also caramel, toffee, spiciness and apple. Thin white head, good retention, some lacing. Clear amber body. Lovely bitterness. Long dry bitter finish, decent carbonation. Quaffable. Excellent paired with almost any classic English dish.

tommann (2979) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2010
500ml bottle. Pours a deep orange with a large head. Aroma is bready with some earthy hops. Some orange in there too. Some orange to start, with a really strong bitter finish. Really full in the mouth. Why have I not bought this before?

This a very good beer, nice aroma, nice balanced taste, a refreshing change from some of the shit I’ve drunk recently

BeerChaser0078 (909) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 13, 2010
Bottle. Pours clear orangeish amber with a dense, lasting off-white head that leaves plenty of lacing. Aroma is spicy and quite herbal with notes of biscuity malt, caramel, grass, mint and ginger. Flavour also has a strong hop profile but also has a solid malt backbone; the herbal, grassy elements are strong on the front palate and are followed up by equally strong malt notes of toffee, biscuit and butterscotch. Medium to light bodied with fairly high carbonation and a long bitter finish. This is a very good, and very different, English bitter. Much hoppier than most examples of this style but excellently balanced and highly sessionable.

Thylacine (526) - Tasmania, AUSTRALIA - AUG 5, 2010
Bottle - Clear orange. Off white head. Medium carbonation & body. Sweet, caramel malts, fruity hops, citrus, quite a good bit of bitterness with a lasting finish.
