rosenbergh (11931) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 4, 2009
440 ml can. 3.5%. From England. Clear amber colour with thick white creamy head. Looks great when poured to pint. Weak caramel and malt aroma with notes of hops and maybe some fruits. And same goes with the flavour. Not so much hops in flavour. Very creamy but also watery. Not the best for my 500th rating. But at least decent. Could get another one in near future.

nate2g (1548) - Boomtown!, AUSTRALIA - JUN 27, 2009
Can. Pours yellow with a creamy white head. The aroma is, well, nothing really. Very light malt and caramel. The flavour is malt, caramel and some hops. Light bitterness in the finish. It’s very bland and I wouldn’t go back for another one.

Borup (15940) - Albertslund, DENMARK - JUN 21, 2009

Rune (13720) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 11, 2009
440ml can, 3.5% abv, shared on the train to Euston, London. Nitro, creamy head over a copper-like body. Very weak on aroma, some sweet malts. Sweet flavoured water with a few notes of roastiness and a very discreet bitter end. Nonoffensive, but has got very little to offer (05.05.2009).

1.4
KnutAlbert (6798) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 13, 2009
Served ice cold at Old Trafford, Manchester. Hazy brown with llots of bubbles and artificial-looking head. Hardly any flavour, watery and uninteresting. I did not finish my glass of this!

2.7
McWorta (1633) - LUXEMBOURG - JAN 27, 2009
Floral maltand light barnyard yeast aroma. A full yellow colour. Cream like header and easy flowing. Medium-strong bitter and a ssplash of sourness. Medium body, creamy a bit slick texture . bitter finish. The cream of manchester, here we go. But brewed in Luton... On tap and decently poured a pint for an afternoon.

2.4
altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - JAN 27, 2009
Can in Knightsbridge (slumming, surely.) Golden body with pop-up head. Sweet and malty nose. Flavour a bit bitter. Creamy and smooth texture. Hoppy finish.

2.5
MoritzF (10199) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - NOV 3, 2008
(50cl can with 44cl content) Clear, light-amber colour with a creamy white layer. Slightly sweet and toasted malty nose with subtle fruity notes. Moderately bitter flavour, light bodied with a flat nitro mf. Pretty one-dimensional malt-accented taste with a faint fruity touch; dry and slightly bitter hoppy finish with a tinge of lemon. Not that bad, just a bit plain (27.X.08).

3.6
emmakingafc (6) - , Illinois, USA - OCT 31, 2008 does not count
Not to be confused with the widget.. this beer is a smooth yet clean beer with a strong hop but low alcohol by English Standards
