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 (1145) - Sydney, 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 (1827) - Norfolk, 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 (3374) - 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?

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.

Joakgust (1362) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 7, 2010
Bottle, 50cl - Clear copper beer with a frothy creamy head. Aroma is malty with notes of bread, caramel, hay and herby hops. Flavor is malty with notes of caramel, butter scotch, creme brl and cookie dough. Very balanced and not at all too sweet despite flavor notes.

Ober (2812) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - MAY 19, 2010
A clear amber/orange colored beer, with a thick beige head. The aroma of fruits like citrus with malty sweets. The tatste is fruity, dry bitter with notes of sweet. The aftertaste is a little sweet with bitter.

VeloVampire (625) - Parkdale, Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 11, 2010
500 ml bottle from my good friend Tom, brought back from Jolly Ole - pours an attractive clear caramel colour with an thinnish off-white head. Incredibly enticing aroma, woodsy, fresh, slightly lemony, a touch of toffee. Flavour a half-notch down, but still very nice - more caramel forward, twiggy, herbal hops round it out, and lend a mild bitterness to the finish. A really beautiful beer, will have to track this down on cask next time Im in England. Thanks Tom!
