Croff (164) - Ostra Sonnarslov, SWEDEN - MAR 11, 2010
Pours a clear dark amber. This off white fluffy head that fades to lace. Weak fruit grain hop aroma. Weak taste of hay, hop, bit of malt. Medium carbonation. Body is towards the lighter side. Weak bitter, hop hay, grain, hint of sweet and metallic aftertaste. Not an offensive brew, but no character whatsoever.

Rune (7822) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 4, 2010
500ml bottle bought at Systembolaget, Kiruna. Copper-brown body topped by a decent off-white head with lots of small dimples. Toasty malts and hints of floral hops to the nose. Malty character in flavour with caramel added by a touch of dried apricot. Smooth bitter ending. Medium bodied. So and so (Tromsø, 03.02.2010).

FatPhil (9182) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 16, 2010
500ml bottle (Viking Line Hel-Sto) - shared with Alfa - thanks!
Reddy brown, healthy tight doughy head. Crisp carbonation. Rich woody and nutty aroma. Slightly sour tang highlighted by the cold. Pleasnat woodiness in the mouth. Some fruity ester retronasals. Lovely nutty and mushroomy taste. A bit emasculated, I’m sure this is brewed stronger and watered down. Finish pleasnatly nutty and mushroomy. Not as good as I remember it, it used to be a stonker, but still very pleasant.

RichardW (1461) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2009
I remember this being a decent draught brew when Ushers was still on the go, so looked forward to trying the bottled version. It has retained the aroma I remember, biscuity and slightly fruity, with some toasted oats discernible. Has a metallic edge, but this is not overpowering. Quite a bitter, almost sour, sharpness. A reasonable example of an English ’premium’ ale.....
