Clear brown beer. Nicely balanced appley hop and mildly spiced malt. Soft semi dry finish. Very drinkable.
Bottle at home ... Nice copper ... nutty hop nose ... litlle soapy ... little metallic ... some flowery lemon hop ... little drying ... ok nothing special imdownthepub (15519) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2008
Bottled, 500ml, pasterised. Reddish amber with white head. Full and warming bitter, relatively dry and hoppy but with a background sweetish fruitiness. Some roasted notes, pretty reasonable. Fin (11060) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2008
Bottle that I picked up at Sainsburys, Kidlington. This poured crystal clear reddy amber with a white head. Quite spicy with some hops and roasted malts but not especially great, its ok but not great. A5 A4 F6 P3 OV11 2.9 leaparsons (10862) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2008
Bottle. Amber red with an off-white head. Aromas are toffee malts with mellow berries and earthy hops. Fruity. Flavours are sweet berries with floral notes. Light malts with a dry, bitter finish. Decent.

Amber-copper beer with coppergreen sheen. Fine carbonation to smallish, light-beige head. Spicy, herbal aromas overlying caramel & sweet malts, wet dog. UK hops to the fore, taking away the sweet from the caramel beneath. Faint veggie bitter on the palate, even a bit sulphury, bit weird. Warming up, apparent fatty acids. Very light body, slightly slick. Aftertaste becomes a tad metallic. OK in the end, nowhere close to greatness. I agree with other tasters that the pasteurisation doesn’t do it any favours. downender (9008) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2008
Bottle. Deep amber with a big, off-white head. Subdued malt and spice aroma. Flavour of dried fruit with some caramel and a decent bitter finish. Ok. maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2009
Bottled Just on the ruby side of amber with a decent off white head. There, that’s the good bit dealt with. It’s all downhill now. Sick inducingly sweet with some odd apricot fruitiness and a nasty and obvious pasteurization. Almost impossible to drink 500ml of. No one around to share it with so the sink gets it,

Bottle. Sourish, nutty, slightly cabbagey malt/yeast aroma almost exactly like Westvleteren 8. I’m not making this up. Onion-like hops in the snout as it cooks. Wet dunked doughy biscuit and vanilla egg custard with nutmeg. Yep, that’s exactly it. All Badger’s bottled beers have that signature taste, and I like it. But it’s predictable.
