Can 440ml. @ The Danish Summer Gathering, TTODRBSG10 - Ulfborg.

Alc. 3.5%. Clear medium amber color with a huge, creamy, good lacing, fully lasting, off-white to white head. Aroma is moderate malty, caramel, toffee. Flavor is moderate sweet and light to moderate bitter with a average duration, malt bitter, cardboard notes. Body is medium, texture is creamy, carbonation is soft. [20100814]

It has a sweet malty creamy aroma with notes of oranges and a little sourness. The color is orange and it has a fine foamy head. The flavor is a creamy malty one, with a note of oranges, in the end it turns a little bitter. A very drinkable and refreshing beer - but not bitter enough for a bitter.

Canned (thanks to mabjorks friend for bringing this from the UK). Amber colour, mediumsized white creamy head. Aroma is hops, grass and some slight metallic notes. Flavour is malts, bitter hops and some slight metallic hints.

Bottleshare at Leighton’s Stratoflat. Can from Dan the Man. Clear gold beer, thin pale cream colour head. Palate is thin and mildly dry. Very modest carbonation, especially from a can. Thin pale malts, some paper. Trace of creamy sweetness. Esters and a whisper of something fruity. Light semi dry finish. Macro nonsense.

cgarvieuk (24536) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 2, 2009
Can at BBQ ... amber ... creamy whiote head ... sweet creamy metalic hop nose with a little vanilla ... ligth sweet and easy ... low malt and tiny grapefruit ... much as i wanted to hate it i couldnt .. it was blah but ok.

Leighton (21296) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2012
Can at home in London. Pours clear, pale orange-gold with a weak, creamy head. Aroma gives off some light leaves, toast and honey. Light sweet flavor with some toasty bread, toasty sugar, faint stale leafy bitterness and hints of caramel. Light bodied and flat. Mild sweet finish with some dry and toasty malts, weak and dry caramel, faint wet leaves. Just an all around mediocre bitter. A bit disrespectful, really.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein bernsteinfarbenes Bier mit geringer Schaumkrone. Geruch malzig, Karamell, fruchtig. Geschmack trocken fruchtig, malzig, Karamell.

Koelschtrinker (20411) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 21, 2011
Bitter Ales liegen mir nciht wirklich, das wird auch bei diesem hier deutlich. Säuerlich-bitterer Antrunk, der sich im wässrigen Aroma verliert. Ab und an wieder bitter, dieser Ton steht allerdings ziemlich alleine da und macht so keine große Freude. Wässriger nachgeschmack, dezent hopfig. Geht grad noch. Test vom 5.11.2007, Gebinde: Dose Noten: 14,6,7,4,5,5 - 6,20

Keg at the Grill ABZ, thanks to Bruce for procuring this whisky cleanser, 20/06/14. Clear golden with a good sized white head that retains well, carbonation evident. Nose is caramel, light floral, vague citric notes, bready pangs, light butterscotch. Taste comprises light butterscotch, bready notes, faint caramel. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, light grassy bitterness in the close. So so keg bitter.
