Cloudy orange colour with a white head. Light malty sweet aroma with a hoppy floral and fruity note. Malty, caramel sweet flavor and a dry hoppy finish.

Papsoe (25060) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 31, 2006
(Bottle 50 cl) Slightly hazy amber with a small, neat, dense off-white head. Slightly fat hop aroma with the alcohol already showing here. Only medium-bodied, citrusy fresh notes - sort of vitamin-C style. Distinct, bitter finish and a rather dominant alcohol without the body to sustain it. 310706

Bottle. Amber colour with a big tan head. Malty, grassy, florel aroma and a sweet malty, florel, hop taste. Medium body with a very dry finish.

joergen (28744) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2006

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 23, 2005
Tasted 23/10/2005. 500ml bottle-conditioned, from Regional Wines and Spirits, Wellington. Hazy, deep, yellow-gold with little visible carbonation and a large, white, head that collapses to a skinny film. Lovely little floaties prove this beer’s claim of being an unfiltered real ale. Citrus and that herbacious, noble hop, aroma dominate the nose. Some background hints of crystal malt. Dry, dry, dry... little malt shows through in the flavour, it’s all hops, aloe vera, pepper, lemon leaves. Reminiscent of my first homebrew lager - dry and very hoppy. Long, lingering, bitter finish. Well made but a bit over the top, for me, in the hop department. I’m sure would be appreciated by lovers of dry APA’s or lager drinkers looking to try an ale.

Ungstrup (38138) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 9, 2005
A hazy orange beer with a nice white head. The aroma is sweet spicy combined with notes of citrus as well hints of caramel. The flavor is very citrusy, malty, and spicy, but also with fruity notes of oranges, and with a lightly bitter end.

3.8
Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - SEP 19, 2005
Bottle. Cloudy dark golden appearence. Lively herbal-hoppy aroma and flavor, tea and fruit, solid long lasting bitterness with a mineral edge. Durham brewery is getting more and more respect from me.

4.1
CampbellWilson (533) - SCOTLAND - JUL 10, 2005
Bottle conditioned from Open All Hours, Keswick. Orange amber, rocky head. Spicy hoppy aroma. Excellent mouthfeel. Long hoppy finish. Really tastes like an American Pale. Lots and lots of hops. Yummy.

3.6
omhper (25351) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JAN 8, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2005 Bottled. Pale amber, small head. Flowery nose. Dryish and richly malty, somewhat fruity with lots of orangey hops. Long bitter finish. Solid.
