danielst (248) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - NOV 14, 2009
50cl bottle into pint glass: Copper-orange colour with an off-white head that leaves a small protective layer on top of the beer. The aroma is mostly citric and minerally with vague notes of caramel/toffee and esters. The flavours are evenly balanced - cookie-like maltiness and crisply bitter, tobacco-leafy hops. Very nice mouthfeel - light and drinkable but not watery, slightly creamy. Delicious and sooo sessionable, I could easily drink it everday and this wasn’t even very fresh!

Bottle. Golden, clear. Just off white head. Nice lacing down the glass. Aroma slightly malty, woody, clean. Tastes malty, spicy and very bitter. A nice, tasty ale.

Davros (2022) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 24, 2009
Pours a deep amber with an amazingly persistent thick head. Aroma is restrained, with sweet caramel malt, light fruity notes, a hint of honey and somewhat grassy hops. Similar flavours with more caramel and grassy notes, some toffee and a mild bitterness. Low carbonation and body, very drinkable.

bluebetty (1019) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 11, 2009
Bottle. Pours a nice amber with small white head. Aromas are fairly restrained but there is certainly some malt sweetness, honey, hop aromas and a llittle fruity. Plenty of malt sweetness on the palate balanced nicely by hop bitterness. Mouthfeel id spot on. Great beer.

joe19612 (1924) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2009
Bottle. Pours a light amber colour with a medium size head. Plenty of hops and hint of toffee in the aroma. The taste is malt and plenty of fruit which leads to a soft dry finish.

DeanF (1716) - Nunavut, CANADA - SEP 3, 2009
Very typical aroma of some hops and a lot of wateriness and some tinniness. Looks alright, decent head, okay gold-amber hue. Taste has some kind of herbal hint to it, a bready and bitter back-end, slight complexity for sure but not spectacular. Just okay.
