500ml bottle pours golden in color with a 2 and a half finger white head that retains well and eventually leaves some spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is flowery and earthy with some cereal grains. Taste is an earthy hop bitterness with a grainy malty sweetness. Light to medium bodied with a generous amount of carbonation leaving a nice sensation on the palate. A nicely balanced and tasty English strong ale that is recommended to try, but is certainly not a stout in the current world of beers.
Cask at GBBF 2012. (Brief tasting notes and rating from old records) - Hazy gold. Very Fruity. Very Hoppy. Not so malty. Not at all stouty. Liked this. Very drinkable. (Backlog) Rasmus40 (21822) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 27, 2017

500ml bottle. Golden amber with a thin, frothy white head. Aroma of apples, distinct strong hoppiness, and grain. Blast of alcohol on the palate, along with bitter grains. Extremely fine carbonation; very smooth. 19Oracolo78 (225) - ITALY - MAR 11, 2017
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2017 Birra dal color giallo paglierino con riflessi dorati. Schiuma bianca, fine e persistente. All’ olfatto sentori di frutta, miele, caramello e una nota speziata. Al palato morbida con note di frutta sciroppata, mielata, con un finale speziato ed erbaceo. Nel finale rimane amara senza mai far sentire i suoi 7,2 gradi. Una birra stout (forte) che nonostante tale appellativo riesce a scendere giù molto velocemente. Una buona birra molto beverina.

Bottle 500 ml from Amstein - St-Légier (CH). Golden amber beer with a nice ivory head and active crackling. Fruity and spicy aromas, herbs and touch of honey. The taste is soft, honey-toffy, floral also, creamy with hints of herbs, grass and roasted, then dry with earty and resinous hop, trend IPA but with more honeyish sweetness.

Samo Pivo, Belgrade. Bad problems with foam on this keg. Hazy white-yellow, tall foam. Sweet plum aroma, body is very creamy and rich and a bit shocking for the color. Sweet plum sake. Intriguing, not bad, but also not for me.
