Bottled, 500ml from Asda, Leamington Spa. Deep amber with white head. Hacking away through some old and dusty bottles, this was a pleasant reminder of happy times with Ridleys brewery. I couldn’t make out the BBE, but it had to be 4 or 5 years since I bought it. Decent caramel malt, some roasty then sweet notes, toffee. Little sign of the hop though, but there is a sharpness to the finish. Reasonable.

Nice head, quickly disappearing but leaves a good lace. I drink this one in April 2005, 8 months after the best before date. The color is amber and the aroma is malty. The flavour is initially sweet and malty but then comes floral notes and a moderate bitterness along. In the finish is has notes of roasted malt and a fairly OK bitterness.

StueyD (1586) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAR 19, 2006
A mid, golden amber beer with a thick white head. The nose is clean and distinctly malty in the beginning, this is then followed by a slightly sweet, floral hop aroma. The taste is dry on the palette, the hop element being the more predominant. This is underlined by a malty touch that leaves a balanced flavour in the aftertaste. (Bottle - purchased from the Beers of Europe, Setchey, Norfolk before the G.K. closure).

Clear and golden with a small white head. Floral hoppy aroma and malty taste with a medium bitter finish. Still on sale in Asda, but within a couple of weeks of best-by date.

Emil (6064) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 13, 2005
Bottle. Golden colour with a white head. Malty, florel, hay aroma and a sweet dry malty taste. Medium body and a sweet finish.

joergen (29216) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 30, 2005
Bottled. Clear golden coloured with a small white head. Aroma of malts, grape fruit, pine needles and hops. Flavour of hops, fruits and pine needles.

RichardGretton (4788) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2005
Bottle. Amber beer with dry, hopped and fruity aroma. The flavour is well hopped and caramel. Overall a good beer.

Papsoe (25056) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 17, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2005 (Bottle 50 cl) Fully golden or light amber, clear with a limited head. Focus in this beer is the amazing Challenger hops leaving a beautiful flowery aroma, but not much bitterness. Light sweetness in the palate. Another fine example of a light ale with lots of flavour. 101204

Pasturised and/or filtered bottle from Asda, High Wycombe, Bucks. Average bottled bitter. Nothing special, seriously cheap (99p), though.
