pivnizub (10906) - Bochum, GERMANY - DEC 13, 2005
Bottle: Amber coloured, thin foamy off-white layer; malty, fruity (raisins) nose with traces of molasses, a tinge of hops,too; moderate bitter-sweet (malty) flavour; long bitter-malty-fruity (liquorice) finish. Pleasant and quite well rounded.

Panzerfaust (877) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - NOV 25, 2005
UPDATED: APR 24, 2006 Copper colored with a medium creamy head. Aroma has equal parts of malt and hops. Fruity character and flavor. Medium body, long finish. Smooth and very enjoyable!

Must re-rate

Bottle (from Tescos). Before having this I had a bottle of Directors and this was a cut above it and I can see what some people like about it. Unfortunately the nutty crystal malt flavours prevent a fuller enjoyment from me.

Papsoe (25054) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 22, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Bronze coloured with a small, dense head. Sweetish malty with typical notes of nuts and caramel and only a discreet bitterness. Very smooth and inoffensive. 130700

Pernille (518) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 14, 2005
Handsome amber color with a steady head. Flavor is much more bitter than I expected, but with a malty breadyness underneath.

Veer (362) - Landskrona, SWEDEN - NOV 12, 2005
Aroma: hops, malt, yeast (almost a burnt scent...sourish), honey-like. Yellow orange w/ white head. Tastes of sweat, bitter, apply, slightly sweet (utterly slightly), malty aftertaste. Flat, slender, fresh, fruity.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - NOV 11, 2005
50 cl can. No yeast in bottom. Amber colour with a nice white head. Citrus and fruit aroma with notes of toffee. Nice flavour of caramel, malt toffee and hints of fruit. Ends up little bitter.

From what i can remember this is a pretty average tasting english ale, which means its fairly good, i shall be sampling it again soon but it still tastes pretty good.

JFURYCAT (1078) - East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 6, 2005
Can. Smooth but way too malty for me. The maltiness seems to linger in the aftertaste as with other commercial beers. This is definately a session beer as far as I’m concerned. I’ve had the bottled and can versions.
