(Bottle) Pours a cloudy golden body with a medium-sized white head. Aroma of cider, sourness, and urine. Flavor of malt and mild hops. Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - APR 5, 2005
Bottle. Nose is strong of bran, wet horse, and urine. Super, super astringent. The urine taste and smell makes this impossible to enjoy. Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 4, 2005
Pour is yellow and fizzy with a small white head...smell is dentist office, latex gloves, tooth paste...taste is bitter and astringent...finish is dry and unpleasant... Nuffield (4189) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - APR 3, 2005
A bottled version under the Co-op "Gold Miner" label. Orange/yellow with some head, aromas of pear, apple cider, and notable sweetness. A flavor like the old Swanson’s (American brand) salisbury steak TV dinner, and some spice. Very astringent. I don’t get any really obnoxious things, like urine (as others did) but the decent aroma gives way to a less enjoyable flavor/palate experience. Kevin (2200) - Montana, USA - APR 2, 2005
lemon and corriander notes that are quickly overtaken by a urine scent. tastes like lemon scented cleaning products smell. geuze like plastic taste that has an odd powdery mouthfeel

Tangerines in the taste. Syrupy, lasting mouthfeel.
One of the better bottle-conditioned ales from the UK. imdownthepub (15160) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2004
Bottle Conditioned as Co-Op Gold Miner. Bright amber with white head. Nice looking beer, poured well. Spicy, coriander seed notes in the aroma and flavour with a sweetish malt base, perhaps a little too challenging for a long beer. The hops last the distance with a few honeyish and green nuances but just couldn’t lose the overwhelming peppery notes. BigBilly (127) - London W3 6PF, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2004
Nice 500ml dark brown bottle, b/conditioned from Glynneath Coop.Poured a crystal clear chestnut with gerat carbonation & creamy head. Crisp citrus orange nose. The first flavour is yeast followed by well balanced roast malt bitter hops. Rounded mouthfeel with crisp bitter finish. Very nice. Ungstrup (38249) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2004
[Bottle] A hazy amber beer with an orange head. The aroma is sweet with notes of coriander and yeast and so is the flavor.I should think this was a Belgian beer - or atleast a Belgian Ale. Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - JUL 21, 2004
Dark golden coloured. Fruity aroma. Fruity and rather hoppy flavour with a bitter finish.
