berkshirejohn (6410) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2008
50cl bottle as Marks & Spencer Oranic Ale. Slightly hazy amber with a thick off-white head; aroma has grass and citrus; fruity malt flavour, rather sweet; grapefruit zest and tartness to the finish which is sustained.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2008
Orange gold with a white head. Faint aroma, mainly malt, I thought. Sweet, malty taste with a sharp bitter finish. Very fizzy. I found this a bit dull and uninspring.

yespr (44093) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAR 29, 2008
50 cL bottle. Pours cloudy yellow to orange with a white head. Light citrus fruity aroma. Flavour is sweet malty with a light citrus fruity note, minor though. Light malty and fruity finish. Easy to drink brew, nothing complex nothing wrong.

Botella. Comprada en supermercado. Poca personalidad. No destaca por nada en particular, pero en conjunto no es mala. Regular.

raymondwave (931) - FINLAND - JAN 16, 2008
Bottle 0.5 l. Beige golden, smallish head. Cidery nose with a some musty hoppiness. Nicely earthy and fruity, slightly buttery, hoppiness on a sweet malt base. Gets much better as it warms up a bit and opens up the hoppiness. Not very bitter and has smooth carb.

DuffMan (10148) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 16, 2007
Bottle, english pint. Hazy deep golden, thick white head demonstrating amazing retention and leaving generous lace. Aroma is malt cereal, a touch of honey. The palate is all pale malt, faintly fruity, with a rather harsh finish, ending on a metallic note. Almost malt liquory in a way. By far the most inferior of the Broughton line Ive tried.

Miksu (5053) - Jyvskyl, FINLAND - SEP 14, 2007
0.5 l bottle. Golden to copper color with decent head. Sweetish aroma with tart fruitiness, honey and parfumy hops. Malty, somewhat sweet flavor with quite strong fruity and resiny hop flavor, medium bitterness. A bit rough finish. Nice balance between sweetness and hops. This bottle was not very fresh, I have had better samples.

Tranquillity (2223) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 31, 2007
A bit darker than normal lager, with a thick head that later forms a small island in the glass...cool. (Im not high at the moment). Flowery caramel, melass aroma. Fudge, some tobacco. Very strong taste, flowers again and the bitterness is awesome. Quite long.
