fonefan (51105) - VestJylland, DENMARK - APR 16, 2009
Bottle 50cl.
Clear medium amber color with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, hay, straw, caramel, cabbage water and paper notes. Flavor is moderate sweet and bitter with a average to long duration. Body is medium, texture is oily to watery, carbonation is soft, finish feel is light metalic. [20090123]

Ungstrup (38413) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 15, 2004
An amber beer with a fine though disappearing head. The aroma is sweet malty with clear notes of yeast and caramel. The flavor is somewhat weird; sour and with a weird hop note. It starts out sweet malty but then gets dominated by sour oranges.

[email protected] Golden colour, mediumsized fluffy beige head. Aroma is fruits, some cardboard, yeast and mild notes of red berries. Flavour is quite much the same along with grass and some toffeeish notes.

Papsoe (25056) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 18, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Very beautiful clear amber bordering ruby red. Nice, creamy head. Typical nutty notes and a marked bitterness. A very pleasant drink. 310803

Leighton (22307) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2017
Bottle at home in Hackney - sourced from Ocado. Pours clear burnished gold with a frothy, off-white head. Lightly toasted malts in the nose, some faint orange peel, grains, biscuits, nips of toffee. Light to medium sweet flavour with mellow leafy bitterness, more bread, lightly tasted grains, very subtle butterscotch, faint earth. Light bodied with average carbonation. Nicely balanced finish, with more toasty, bready malts, low bitterness, light leafy notes, undertones of citrus. It ain’t sophisticated, but it drinks just fine.

chriso (21656) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 30, 2010
500cl bottle, consumed on 30 July 2009. Pale amber. Modest aroma with just a touch of fruit. Sweetish on the palate. Some tart bitterness on the finish. Clean enough with a quite chalky mouthfeel. Not that much to it but perfectly pleasant

harrisoni (19338) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2007
500ml bottle from Sainsbury, Ashford. My first new rating of 2007, Crystal clear amber colour with lastng rocky off white head. Some peppery citrus hop aroma. I thought that it might be filtered and pasteurised and therefore a bit dead. Some candy sugar suggests that it is pasteurised. Bit biscuity on aroma. Some lovely citrus lemon hop on finish, with good bitterness. Bit soapy maybe. The middle is a bit empty with that boiled sweet flavour. Hops are good though.

Oakes (18851) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 21, 2000
I love that complex yeastiness of the Yorkshire squares. This beer is a wonderful showcase for this rare brewing technique.

bhensonb (15758) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 16, 2013
Bottle as Sainsbury’s Yorkshire Bitter. Pours copper with a creamy off-white head. Aroma is floral and malty. Med body, almost. Flavor is mostly floral hop with some very nice light roasty malt. It’s dry. It’s bitter. It’s very good.
