COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Available filtered and pasteurised in 500ml bottles.
"This succulent premium ale has a wonderful blend of hops that give spicy and citrus fruit flavours leading into a dried fruit and biscuit malt finish. Twice a gold medal winner at the British Bottlers’ Institute Awards. Rich and malty as well as fruity and spicy. Nutty amber malt and biscuit pale malt together with crystal malt giving toffee/caramel notes. Fuggles and Styrian hops brings masses of tropical fruit and fragrant spiciness. Robust bitterness is balanced with the full body and mouth feel provided by the malt and the satisfyingly complex hoppiness."
A Ridley’s beer, brewed at Greene King since late 2005.

Ungstrup (37677) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 6, 2003
The nose is flowery, fruity but too faint. The color is amber and the head is small. The mouthfeel is very soft, and the flavor is fruity with notes of black currant and other berries. It is slightly prickling. All in all a really good beer.

oh6gdx (26488) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 18, 2009
Bottled (thanks to the craziest bartender in the world). Golden amber colour with mediumsized fluffy/foamy head that leaves some nice lace. Aroma is caramel malts, some mild toffee as well as mild oak wooden notes. Flavour is sweet caramel malts, some fudge, mild grass and even some kind of stingy sweetness, not exactly alcohol, but something kind of close to that kind of sweetness. Smooth palate.

3.2

(Bottle 50 cl) Clear amber colour with a thick and stable head. Typical nutty notes in both aroma and flavours with a marked bitter finish. Rather classical British. 140402 & 310802

Reddish amber clear beer. Semi dry palate. Nicley balanced toffeeish malt with a smooth but subdued hop counterbalance. Creamy malt in the finish and an aftertaste of fading hop.

Leighton (21299) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2011
Bottle at home in London with Lyoli. Pours rich chestnut with a small, foamy white head. Holds a rich toffee aroma with doughy malts and distant, ripe fruits. Light to medium sweet, with toasted biscuits and earthy, leafy and slightly herbal bitterness. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Finishes dryly with notes of burnt candy, toast and some herbal, earthy hops. Pretty nice.
