COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The brewers were knee deep in our hops for this special brew, using hops just harvested from our own vines which were then steeped in the vat of beer for months, this English style bitter has a real smack of hops to it, balanced by a luscious maltiness and strength of 6%.

motelpogo (7704) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - FEB 19, 2012
bottled. reddish amber with an enthusiastic head; decent arormas of red berry, lemon zest and golf course on a rainy day; chewy, biscuity malt and a long mellow bitterness; perhaps lacking a little guts but an original beer nonetheless

madquacker (1143) - Canberra ACT, AUSTRALIA - AUG 20, 2011
Big bold malty red and velvety and smooth to boot. The foam exploded at the start but a nice malty smooth ale. Excellent.

3.2
Ungstrup (37685) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 8, 2010
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a thin tan head. The aroma has notes of malt and over ripe fruits. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, and over ripe fruits as well as a light note of sugar, leading to a bitter finish. A bit odd.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 2, 2010
Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of bluebetty. Pours a clear amber with an off-white head. Fruity, nutty and caramellish aroma - a wee phenollic touch. Medium body, sweeet toffee, caramel and nuts. A little licorice in the finish, very subdued hops. 021110

3.6
bluebetty (1021) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 26, 2010
Bottle. Pours a deep ressish brown. Smallish light tan coloured head with no real lacing. Nice looking beer. Aromas show heaps of dark fruit, sweet caramel and alcohol. Not much in the way of hops coming through. Flavour wise the beer starts opf super sweet with the dark fruit and grains showing through. Near the finish there is some hop bitterness and a little alcohol burn. Mouthfeel is reasonably full. Nice beer.

3.4
Samma (166) - Fitzroy, AUSTRALIA - JUN 17, 2010
In bottle. I had higher expectations of this one. Didn’t have the bitterness or hoppy wallop I’d expected.
