Thanks to Grumbo. Pours hazy orange color, topped with huge white foamy head. Fruity hoppy nose with some noticeable grapes. Soury taste with herbal sourness. Sadly gone, although still within BB.

Golden with a small white head. Floral and fruity aroma. Sweet and fruity flavour with some peach character. Rather bitter finish

Bottle. Cloudy amber golden / bronze beer with a relatively lively head. The aroma is fruity and hopped, and the flavour is very dry with a strongly hopped, bitter and yeasty flavour. Overall a nice beer with a long dry finish.

500ml bottle (ChrisO’s post-GBBF2011 Tuesday)
Liquoricey aroma. Dry bitter taste. Earthy and serious, very much a bramling cross bitterness. However, not a particularly exciting bitter, but definitely adequate.

Bottle @ Chris O’s. Thanks guys. Pours cloudy golden with a small creamy white head. Orange and lime. Fruit and yeast. Slightly tart. Ends dry.

Bottle 500ml.

Clear medium yellow amber colour with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white to white head. Aroma is moderate malty, toasted, caramel, fruity, light to moderate hoppy, citrus. Flavour is moderate sweet and bitter with a average to long duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. [20110731]

Bottle at ChrisO & Ruth’s - Thanks. Clear golden - white head. Toasted, sweetness, knækbrød notes, very cold, zesty, grassy, grainy, fruity, sourish notes.

500ml bottle, best before November 2011, from Beers of Europe. Hazy old gold colour with a bit of haze. Thin white head and decent condition. Light, tart aroma. Maybe a slight sour edge. Some tropical fruit in the flavour. Finishes with some sharp lemon notes. Pleasant and tasty.

Bottled (from Beers Of Europe). Golden colour, small foamy head. Aroma is fruits, floral and pleasantly nectary notes along with mild earthy and wooden notes. Flavour is fruits, some floral notes as wooden and some maltyness.

Had it in a bottle. It would be harsh of me to give this a low grade, its nice beer, plenty of tastes as the reviewer below me has perfectly described. Plenty of flavour, worth a try.
