Ungstrup (34945) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 21, 2006
An amber beer with a nice orange head. The aroma is sweet with notes of straw, berries, and caramel as well as a slight acidic note. The flavor is sweet with primary notes of caramel and straw, leading to a dry end.

Mungo (2470) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2006
Bottle (from Sainsburys, BBE May 07). Nice aromatic hop aroma fruity with earthy floral notes. The accompanying malt flavours didnt really complement the hops - lots of caramel which tasted quite pasteurised despite the freshness of the hop aromas. The nice start made the fairly average taste of a fairly decent pasteurised beer a bit of a let down.

harrisoni (17457) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2006
500ml bottle from Sainsbury. Dont know if they have changed the recipe or what, but Im right with Magic Dave on this one. I have been so accustomed to Harviestouns use of US hops it was nice to have something else from them and for once a pasteurised beer was really good. Very pale copper colour with lasting white head. Earthy hop with fragrant EKG coming through. Some faint gingerish caramel. Mix of soft malts and nice citric hop with gtrapefruit and excellent dryness. Good complex hops on both the aroma and in the flavour and lasting into the finish. Lovely intense juicy rapefruit. Really impressed with the hops on this. Some dustiness too.

Yes, this is the type of beer i want, i could have infinate of these, this is a really good beer. I cannpt believe im rating a scotish bottled non bottle conditioned beer this highly, but here goes. Aroma is great grassy/citrus hops, with a little malt character in there i wouldnt expect from such a low% beer. Taste is very flavoursome hoppy yes yes, the malt balances it balances it very well, bready malt too, which normally goes with nothing. Yes Yes!

Golden and clear with a fruitiness that just begs you to drink it.Plenty of flavour. A very pleasant drink.

imdownthepub (13553) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2005
Bottled, pasteurised, 500ml. Orange ambr beer with high carbonation and fizzed head. Thin bodied pale ale, over carbonated, with a thin malt flavour. Little of the expected hop note, pretty disapointing.

Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2005
Bottle from Sainsburys, High Wycombe. Brownish with a thin white head. Aroma is heavy on the hops with floral and citrus fruit aroma. Decent body with some sweetness and a ton of bitterness and hop character for an ordinary bitter. Fruity and flavourful pasteurised bitter.

Clear orange-amber ale: good & dense off-white head, not very stable. Creamy nose, and at the same time fresh-hoppy smell. Very American. Some vanilla in there. WOW! this must be my hoppiest Scottish ale to date. This is great - real northern IPA. Caramelly undertones, but nowhere sweet. Light body, but I can hardly blame a 4.4% ABV beer for not being heavy - in fact, it seems more in heaviness, if not in alcohol. Aftertaste has some tobacco ash. Great bitter. Ill have mine without the haggis corpse, thankee. Now, as to a pistacchio-stuffed leg of lamb, Moghul style, OTOH...
