Bottle Conditioned. Pours a pure gold colour with a large off-white head. The aroma is all citrus with lots of hops. The taste is all citrus with a hint of malt, with a bitter aftertaste.

Large white head, excellent retention and a thick, coating lace that really hangs on. Dark gold, light copper hued ale. A handsome brew indeed. Yeast aromas hit you first followed by notes of citrus, berrys, fruit and some light earthy notes. Body is lightly medium, crisp on the palate with a quaffing carbonation level. Dried fruit flavors, peach, light caramel notes in the malt dept., grassy and fruity with some appley notes, though all around light. Dry, lightly fruity finish. Been groovin on some of these english brews lately. I guess my beer guy @statelineliquors is gettin,em in fresh, dunno. Nice ESB.

Bottle.pours a cloudy light gold with creamy white head. Aroma is very nice, notes of fresh fruity hops, floral. Flavor is is very much the same with a pleasant maltiness, very well balanced. Light to medium body with medium-high carbonation. Very nice beer.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - SEP 1, 2006
50 cl bottle. Golden clear colour with a little white head. Nice soft aroma of mild hops. Light flavour of hops, speciel cirtus, and with a tastefull and bitter finish.

UPDATED: APR 8, 2016 Sadly this one was a little old and had some skunk too it. But I could get a good idea of the flavor despite. Pale yellow ale with some grassy/pine hops. Serving: Bottle

Tranquillity (2508) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 25, 2008
Bottled. Excellent as an aperitif. Qui9te simple, flowery aroma. Small white head, orange colour. Taste simple, but very hoppy. Fresh but not much more.

BCA (from Tesco, BB Apr 07). As Joeh noted an annoying label. As they suggested I served it lightly chilled but not in two stemmed glasses, I only have one mouth after all. There is an initial citrus hop burst. Crisp, drinkable and refreshing. I prefered this once it warmed slightly giving slight resiny earthy edge to the substantial hop finish with sweet malty flavours to back this up. Quite tasty.

Gethinbeer (2452) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - DEC 4, 2006
Fruity fresh aroma. Clear orange brown with medium carb. No head whatsoever. Fruity taste, nice and crsip. has a home made feel to the beer. Watery in texture but with a pleasant tang. Enjoyed it.

Alphadelic (2249) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 13, 2009
Candied orange peel to the nose with just a touch of clove type spice. There is something almost watermelon-like here too. Sweet and vibrant on the palate with a bulging, smooth texture and rich decadence. This beer contains far more than one would expect from looking at it.

Pale golden and slightly hazy. Fresh aroma of ctirus fruits, sweet malts and grass. Flavour is bitter, grass and citrus. A tasty bitter.
