espenra (884) - 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.

wheresthepath (1621) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2008
[500ml bottle from Three Choirs Vineyard shop] Gift from Mum & Dad - cheers! Moderate white head, some carbonation (about right for the beer). Good floral hops, some malt, a little earth and maybe some sweet orange. Well balanced with an interesting mix of flavours - I would have liked more of this. Could maybe do with just a hint more bitterness though.

Nekronos (3646) - Xalapa, MEXICO - SEP 12, 2008
The clip is funny. BUt not enough to make me love a bitter. It was good and foamy. I had it at GBBF 2008.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 9, 2008
Cask at GBBF 08. Slightly hazy dark amber with a great flowery and earthy scent. Smooth and very flavoursome, this is a very good bitter.

FatPhil (9618) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 17, 2008
500ml bottle (Sainsbury’s)
Roast vegetable aroma - even burnt cabbage. Fizzy and a bit watery palate. Quite burnt taste, but can’t shake off the sprouts and asparagus. Ashy and almost smoky in places. Not unpleasant, and quite characterful, but not really pressing my buttons.

HogcliffeLenny (162) - Christchurch, Dorset, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2008
Bottle 500ml from Sainsburys, Christchurch, Dorset. Slightly hazy amber pour with a medium tan head. Distinctive pear drop aroma. Taste of burnt coffee beans with a bitter aftertaste. Quite a thin mouthfeel, though.

Rune (8497) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 20, 2008
Bottle conditioned. A very lively product than came very fast out of the 500ml bottle. Hazy, dark orange body. Good white head retention and glass-lacing. Sweet fruity aroma of apples and oranges. The flavour is a pretty god mix of sweet caramel and rounded bitter orange peels that lingers into the finish (Oslo, 17.01.2008)

thebeertourist (4904) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 8, 2008
Bottle. Hazy, orangey amber with a big offwhite head. Sweet flavours and aroma with hoppy grassiness. Quite nice, even if slightly on the sweet side.
