Lunkie (1418) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - MAR 25, 2005
Sweet hoppy malty aroma. Cloudy red maber colour with reasonable head. Sweet long malt flavour then a bitter aftertaste. Very complex flavour. Smooth palate.

Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2005
2 June 2002 (Bottled)-Tested bottled. A good, light pale bitter. I would like to try this on draught.

imdownthepub (10461) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2005
Bottled, pasteurised. Amber beer with bubbly head. Not a patch on the cask version although the hoppiness does show through after a while. Citric bitterness on the tongue, but the bottling process does diminish the beers impact.

pivo (2571) - GERMANY - OCT 24, 2004
BOTTLE: Foul rotten nose is off-putting right away. Pale amber color and tall fluffy head. Quick thinihs malt without much character. A substantial hop bitter is the only real elements of the flavor profile of interest. Unfortunately, the hop blend isn’t good and the hops seem stale. Like a bad brewpub brew in the U.S.

DanielBrown (3848) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2004
Bottle from Stirchley Co-op, Birmingham. Pale orange, thin, smooth head and lacing. Attractive hoppy, sweet aroma. Very tasty balanced beer. Begins very hoppy - some sweet citrus in there, then becomes more malty: bread, turns into salty cracker. Tasty tasty.

YogiBeera (2480) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 2, 2004
Amber, fizzy carbonation, rocky head. Sweet malt nose, also toffee. Bitter but also butterscotch in taste. Weird aftertaste, like stale hops.

Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - SEP 30, 2004
Bottle. Amber with nice head. Fruity, earthy, notes of minerales, great bitter-dry finish.

Aarleks (409) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 8, 2004
Bottle: Amber with a nedium sized off-white rocky head. Hop aroma apparent while the glass was still on the table - Floral and spicey hops, crytal malts, and faint bready yeast notes. Flavour was dissapointing after the aroma - Fruity hops with cherries and strawberries, faint malt, a citrussy tartness, and some biscuity notes. Quite bitter with very low carbonation that resulted in it being quite creamy on the palate. Nice but lacked in the flavour department.

Boystout (1000) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - SEP 3, 2004
Hazy golden with tight head. Fresh lemon aroma, rich bready maltiness with light peppery and grapefruity notes. Quite good but not outstanding.

Dec, 2002: Bottle. Like a premature ejaculation, this bursts with heady promise; rich and creamy - then collapses into a bitter nothing. [2.6]
Jan, 2014 500ml dark bottle from Sainsburys. Sweet, juicy malt - clean yet tingly and refreshing. Pleasantly range of hop flavours spread throughout the beer. Flowery yet also tree bark, and with lemon notes. There’s plenty going on. Good meld of malt and hops. Not hugely exciting, but well done, and has enough of interest for a session bottle. [3.3]
