A hazy red-orange beer with a huge light brown head. The aroma is sweet with notes of caramel and dust. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of toffee, but also some fruity notes of oranges and a nutty dry finish.

omhper (25544) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 5, 2005
Bottled. Hazy dark amer, firm, rocky head. The aroma is all about butterscotch. Really sweet and caramelly with that lovely Hook Norton malt character hidden in an abundance of sugar & toffee. Some grassy bitterness that tries to cope with the butterscotch. As a big fan of this brewer I’m disappointed, but still it’s a decent brew.

Papsoe (25059) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 23, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Very pretty, clear amber with a dense, lasting head. Lovely fresh floral aroma. Rather light with some nutty notes. Not overly bitter - the hops add mostly aroma. Very classical bitter. 060601

Leicht trübes orange goldenes Bier mit einer geringen weißen Schaumkrone. Geruch sehr hopfig, getreidig, zitronig. Geschmack trocken hopfig, getreidig, grasig, etwas Karamell.

3.3
Leighton (22027) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2017
Bottle at home in London - sourced via Ocado. Pours totally clear burnished gold with a creamy, mostly white head. The aroma holds lightly toasted pale bread, a little citrus peel, faint leafy hops. Light-medium sweet flavour with basic bready malts, hints of toasted sugars, vague orange, mellow leafy bitterness. Light bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sweet finish, with lightly toasted bread, low bitterness. It doesn’t set the world alight, but it drinks OK.
