fonefan (45113) - VestJylland, DENMARK - AUG 22, 2011

Cask (handpump) @ GBBF 2011, Great British Beer Festival, Earls Court Exhibition Centre, London, England.

Clear medium amber yellow colour with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white to white head. Aroma is light moderate malty, toasted, caramel, light hoppy. Flavor is moderate sweet and light bitter with a average to long duration, malty, borring ! Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft to flat. [20110802]

[500ml bottle, gift from Mum & Dad - cheers!] Golden-amber with a thin white head and a moderate fizz. Looks very thin on pouring but actually has a reasonable mouthfeel. Aroma of sweet malt, and sweetness is the main initial taste. However, some grassy hops kick in, then some ginger, and a drying straw bitterness in the finish is just about enough to offset the sweetness. OK overall.

AshtonMcCobb (5635) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 19, 2011
On tap @ the Tankerville Arms, Longden, Shropshire. Pours a cloudy dark-honey colour with some head. The nose has gente malt and a wild honey sweetness. The taste has honey, sultanas, then apples. The palate is medium to large in structure, rich in texture and there is a sweet though elegant finish. Overall, I like this, it works!

Sweet malty everything - all the way from the aroma to the finish. Dull, but very grainy, lots of malt and bread in the finish.

gunnar (8233) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUL 18, 2011
Bottle at a seafood restaurant in Torquay. Pours clear golden with a big white head. Aroma is malty and some solid hops. Taste is fresh and crisp hops, enough of them to stand out from the british middle of the road beers, oranges and lemons shines through a good malty body. Lovely beer.

Bottle. Dull golden brown with a thin foam. Aromas are biscuit and weetabix malts with spritzy lemon tea. Peach with hints of fudge. Flavours are sweet malts with yeast and spritzy citrus. Medicinal with a fruity, earthy finish. Decent.
