Jeppe (2631) - Řlbutikken, DENMARK - JUN 9, 2004
Fine tan head on a brown reddish body. Quite full and fruity aroma with tones of oranges and apricot. Nice and sweet! Flavor is very sweet fruity and sugary. Obvious notes of oranges. Little thin on the palate but all in all a nice and refreshing beer. Lacks a bit of sourness though.

Scopey (6180) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2014
1988 bottle from DHVL. It pours clear deep brown with a small beige head. The nose is earth, wood, toast, cocoa, raisin and light spice. The taste is smooth, lightly tart, dark fruits, berry, light caramel, raisin, apple and sherbet notes. Light-medium body and soft carbonation. Pretty well rounded and rather drinkable stuff. Not bad for a 25 yr old!
