[Bottled at Oliver Twist, Stockholm] Clear amber, average head. Dusty aroma of citrus and melon. Light ly appley with sharp unpleasantly metallic mouthfeel. No malt flavour, too little hops and a fizzy quick finish. What went wrong here? Oakes (17699) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 16, 2001
Bronze, good head; even aroma and palate, balancing earthy, toffeeish malts and floral hops. Though it seems modelled after English style pales, the use of American hops gives it a vibrancy that really adds to the balance and drinkability of the beer. Not a landmark product but nicedly done. jtclockwork (16603) - , New Jersey, USA - MAY 5, 2010
pale yellowish pour. Nose and taste of very simple hop malt. Not all that good. Rated 4/18/04 bhensonb (15251) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 20, 2011
Bottle from Half Time. Pours amber with a transient foamy off-white head. Light slightly roast caramel aroma. Near med body. Flavor is mostly light roast caramel, but it is astringent. Not all that bitter though. Just a light touch of fruity hop. Course astringent and bitter confuse me a little. Definitely dry finish. Other than the mouth shrinking there’s not a lot to write home about. Drinks well tho. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 26, 2005

12oz bottle. Poured a medium and clear orange color with a small sized white head. Aromas of caramel and citrus. Tastes of the same. Lively and fizzy body. Sammy (12212) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 17, 2004
Ringwood yeast and mild hops and light copper colour. Small head. Early session ale. Dry, fair. #9 on-tap at Clark’s Ale House in Syracuse. Smooth for a nothing special lager. j12601 (12001) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - APR 14, 2013
Bottle. Pours a hazed amber brown with a medium sized white to beige head and some small floaty bits. Smells infected and papery, diryt old malt. Medium bodied, sweet and oxidized, old dirty paper and prunes. Bitter paper into the finish. Not good. deyholla (11609) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 8, 2011
Bottle. Pours a clear orange with a slight gold hue with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has notes of citrus and grapefruit with a backing sweet grain and biscuit. Flavor is a bit more thin and has a lot less hop profile with some sweet grains and a hint of grapefruit coming out in the finish. hopscotch (11113) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 7, 2007
Bottle... Clear amber ale with a small, fizzy, white head. Good retention. Floral, fruity aroma with a pleasant afterthought of diacetyl. Balanced nicely, but thin. Reserved acidity sparks some interest and then disappears, leaving just a whimper of buttery diacetyl and my palate unfulfilled. Light-bodied with Champagne-like spritz. Short, tannic, bone-dry finish. A big THANKS to growler for splitting the bottle!
