COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle; Pasteurised.
"Beers for bottling are drawn from brewery conditioning tanks and transported by road tanker to our bottlers. There they are chilled, stored for ten days, then filtered and bottled. At the end of the bottling process, the bottles are pasteurised, labelled and packed."
"Brewed with many generous handfuls of choice Golding hops, it is full flavoured ale with a rich fruit nose. The bittersweet malty taste is followed by an uncompromising long, dry and bitter finish. This beer was the first, most successful, of all of our bottled beers."

pivo (2688) - GERMANY - FEB 20, 2005
Smells of dark fruits, amber color, huge tall foamy head. Orange malt undertones. Dirty hop end. Medium body. Some character and above average, though not terribly exciting.

TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 17, 2005
Strong aroma of licorice. Pours an copper brown, nice head. Hops are present, medium body, mild bitter finish. Again that licorice flavour in the aftertaste.

YogiBeera (2569) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 13, 2005
Big rocky medium lasting head. Light amber color. First sulphury then roasted malt nose. Short bitter but kind of stale kick. Roasted malt finish.

Stew41 (2082) - Phuket, THAILAND - FEB 9, 2005
Nice light caramel colour, a little cloudy. Pours a thin spongy head. Ok nose, some malts but very slightly metallic. A bit firmer in the mouth than expected with not as much malt sweetness (the again, being a good Orstralian I drank this too cold). Finishes with medium bitterness and relatively fizzy. Would go well inthe hot weather me thinks.

awaller05 (305) - Sharon, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 30, 2005
Pours nice orange hue with minimal white head. Nice smell , can’t really put words to it. First taste hits with some hops, and then a dry finish like drinking dry ginger ale.

3.5
shadey (2166) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 29, 2005
Orange color with a white head and some small level of lacing. Lots of malt in the aroma, with a smooth mouthfeel and a clean hop finish. If I was in england and it was cheaper this would be a nice session bitter.

3.6
beerandrugby (210) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 25, 2005
Bottle. Hazy orange- honey color. Thin light tan head, mostly lasting and very well lacing. Initial sweet toasted malt with a bitter grassy hop finish. The palate was a little thin but other than that I’m surprised this beer has recieved only a 3.18...I found it to be very good.

3.2
highlandlad (1480) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - JAN 18, 2005
Pours a bronze colour with aan appetising thick head and some lacing. Rich malt and treacle nose. Medium bodied. Hops and toffee in the front and middle, with a rather metallic bitter finish. Reasonable drinking. (Bottle)

3.3
darkstar (69) - Eureka, Missouri, USA - JAN 15, 2005
Beer looked nice with a full head but the taste was just flat. Lacked enough carbonation. Very disappointing. Won’t buy again.

3.5
Boystout (1000) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - JAN 10, 2005
Pale straw coloured, fluffy rocky headed. Typical Sheep yeasty and fruity aroma. Refreshing mild sweetness in the palate, nice sharp hoppy bitterness in the aftertaste. When fresh it’s a treat.
