A good robust bitter. Some crystal malt gives a slight golden colour while a dry rich hoppy bitterness makes for a refreshing experience.

An orange beer with an off-white head. The aroma is sweet fruity and very hoppy, but also slightly dusty - my guess is Goldings has been used. The flavor is sweet fruity with oranges and grapefruit coming thru, but also a dry end - again my guess is Goldings. A really nice thirst quencher - for a Dane, this could be a session beer.

Hazy amber beer, tidy white head. Peppered with dark lumpy bits that soon fall to the bottom. Palate is light with good fine carbonation. Light malts, not much sweetness. Spicy bitter hops. Very mild dried fruits. Semi dry finish, mild bitter linger. Touch of dry malt cream. Okay bitter.

3.4
fiulijn (21274) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 6, 2008
Bottle conditioned at Cockney Pub, Århus
Hazy golden color, with a persistent perlage that keeps an irregular half centimeter of thick foam. It has a very good aroma, typical of good English Golden Ales, with hops (quite grassy) and some fruity touch. Medium-light body, dry mouthfeel (mainly because of the strong bitterness), with some dry toffee flavor; the hop has a grassy character; as said, the bitterness is very high, and therefore the final long. Extremely bitter for the style, maybe unbalanced, but pleasant.
