Quack-Duck (7517) - Down South, GERMANY - MAY 5, 2010
bottle. Amber-bronw colour, large off-white head. Interesting oaky-sour nose, reminding me of sour ales. The sourness, however, is hardly present in the taste. Malty, hints of caramel and s good amount of bitter hops. Slightly fruity and acidic.

bluevegie (3042) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 7, 2009
Probably drank this a bit too cold so it went down quick and easy enough. Slightly hazy copper body with a decent head that wanted to hang around. Good nose, dusty, hops and some malt. Taste is straightforward, hops again more than the malt, moderate bitterness and carbonation, sediment, a bit of lemon on the finish.

wyzzywyz22 (1885) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - JUN 22, 2009
Bottle, Morrisons, West Kirby. Dark amber with a decent head. Malty aroma, nothing too enticing. Some nice hoppage in the flavour, which was well balanced and finished dry. Much better than anticipated.

DruncanVeasey (6950) - NUNEATON, Top 24, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2009
Bottle. Copper with a thinning white slick. Nose of soil, rust, hazelnut yoghurt and Darjeeling. There’s some decent malt and hops in there, buried in yeasty weirdness. Ash and chocolate orange sprinkled with grass cuttings and clove. Nutty like broccoli, crumb of pistachio. Odd but not unpleasant like most BC English beers. You just have to grit your teeth and get on with it.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2008
Thanks to Chris and Judy for this bottle. Copper amber with a white head. very hazy, full of sediment. Malty aroma, rather vegetal with a little burnt chocolate. Musty, rather indistinct taste with some sourness and slight bitterness. Many disparate elements here, not really working together.

fonefan (33333) - VestJylland, DENMARK - OCT 22, 2008

Light light unclear light to medium amber orange color with a small, fizzy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white to white head. Aroma is moderate malty, dusty, old malt, cream caramel, toffee, buttery. Flavor is moderate sweet with a average duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. (070808)

omhper (18949) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 21, 2008
Bottled at Monk’s Café, Stockholm. Lightly hazy amber, enormous rocky head. Orangey yeasty nose. Lemony and light bodied, lightly minerally. Though the bottle stillis young the beer already shows cleafr signs of beginning infection. Finishes lemony with an unpleasant acidity.

espenra (840) - Kurland, NORWAY - OCT 18, 2008
50cl bottle. It poured an amber colour with a huge foamy head that settled down slowly in the glass. It has a very hoppy aroma that also smells of oranges. The flavour is slightly bitter and tastes of caramel and oranges. It has a short aftertaste.
