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.

Joakgust (1348) - 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.

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!

Bottle. Pours with a clear nut brown-amber body and a average foamy off white head. Avery subtle aroma of bread, brown sugar, golden syrup-slighly herbal. Taste of caramel with a spritzy desert apple acidity and a moderate bitter finish. Medium bodied. Pleasant.

Mjollnir (397) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - APR 5, 2010
500mL bottle. Pours mid way between gold and amber with a fluffy white head. Earthy aroma with a bit of tea and smells like its spent a night in a smoke filled pub. Grassy flavour with some malt and a decent level of bitterness. Light-medium bodied, soft carbonation and a slightly sticky bitter finish.
