Bottle (thanx to Q.-D.!): A bit unclear,copper coloured, no head to speak of; moderate dry hoppy and fruity nose with a little metallic touch; moderate to robust dry bitter flavour, a little sweetness underneath, light to medium bodied, quite soft; lingering hoppy and fruity finish - maybe with traces of liquorice. Good........ MoritzF (9901) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - APR 28, 2010
(bottle) Hazy, chestnut-brown colour without head. Moderately sweet malty and fruity, slightly floral and woody hoppy aroma. Quite bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a soft carbonation. Dry and soft malty taste with an aromatic hops character with fruity and woody, also slightly floral accents; dry and moderately bitter hoppy finish. Balanced and quaffable stuff. 28.IV.10 Quack-Duck (9484) - Down South, GERMANY - DEC 30, 2010
bottle. Slightly hazy amber-golden colour, tiny head. Fruity-hoppy nose. Light malty base with lots of hops, some of it rather medicinal. The malty base does not really balance the hops, it’s bitter-sweet, but I don’t really like the medicinal bitterness of the hops. downender (8660) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2007
Bottle conditioned. Amber with a decent off-white head. Aroma of orange peel and earthy hops. Flavour of honey and more orange with a very dry finish. Would echo comment below about the spritzy mouth feel. Very enjoyable. DruncanVeasey (8226) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2010
BC from Bath Waitrose. Muddy and swirling with bits; settles down into a red-orange glow with a cream halo. Slightly agricultural aroma dappling with wet earth and cowpat until the lily, cinder toffee and juicy orange hop kicks in. Sloppy but enjoyable; layered earthy malts, toasted nuts, orange and grapefruit, chocolate liqueur, wood. Quite a skilled blending of herbal English and juicy US hops; yeasty dampness and nuts freshened up with hop zest. Building shampoo bitterness not dissipating with the swallow. Rustic and good.

Bottle. Amber and poured with a massive head. Some citrus andquite bitter. Pleasnt but a bit too sharp edged for my taste. shoulderbroken (4255) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 17, 2012
Cask at Bree Louise. Amber coloured, very clear, with small white head. Aroma is sweet and grainy. Taste, same. Not very exciting. hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2007
Amber with a large white head. Curious and interesting aroma: strong, gassy, earthy hops. The taste is rather subdued in comparison with malt and a little citrus. Hoppy finish.
