ABUSEDGOAT (2706) - California, USA - NOV 5, 2005
Tap: amber body, caramel dominates the aroma. Yeasty as well I suppose. A typical Bitter, but enjoyable.

thebeertourist (5189) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 5, 2005
Dark copper-coloured with beige creamy head. Yeast and caramel aroma with good grassy hoppiness. Flavour starts sweet and fruity, but is well-balanced towards the bitter end. There is some good earthines as well

Ungstrup (36893) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 2, 2005
An amber beer with a huge creamy light brown head. The aroma is sweet with notes of yeast and caramel. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of caramel and fruit, and with a slightly sticky mouthfeel.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 2, 2005
Dark orange colored, little white head. Mildly buttery and oaky, somehow dry aroma. Medium bodied. Sweet flavor in start, ends with mildly dry and bitter tones. Medium carbonation. Basic bitter.

WISEGUY572 (1377) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 21, 2005
Looks great, in a plastic sort of way when it comes out of the can with the nitro widget. Dark clear ale with a huge opaque tan nitro head fading to great nitro lace. Taste is caramel and English malt, followed by a strong taste of British (not American of course) bitter hops. I kind of like this in a London Pride sort of way. Palate is smooth, not as bad as a nitro can can often be.

Dalle (1145) - Skrping, DENMARK - OCT 17, 2005
Bottle. Amber with small head. Marmite, earthy, rusty with medium body. Didnt disappoint or impress...

TBone (17269) - Pori, FINLAND - OCT 13, 2005
Draught @Angleterre
Copper brown, small good looking off-white creamy head. Sweet toffeeish-caramelly nose. Medium-bodied. Starts oaky-hoppy, slightly sugary then hoppy bitter finish and aftertaste. A bit Fullers ESB -like ale.

Christian (13578) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 10, 2005
Amber beer with little head. Caramel and roast malt aroma, with some hops and honey, but the caramel is too dominating. The caramel is still there as it enters the mouth, but a rich hops flavour quickly takes over. Long bitter aftertaste.

exactoknife (4) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - SEP 24, 2005 does not count
A so so ale. Poured from can. Nice thick, creamy head on a medium brown body. Not very full-bodied or complex in flavor, has a sharp note of hop in the aftertaste.

Aggie80 (818) - Michigan, USA - SEP 3, 2005
Can foamed over the edge, widget device in can. Smooth white head with the creaminess the widgets build into the pour. Smooth with a touch of metallic flavor. Brown clear color, malty, but not overpowering with a weak hop note.
