500 ml bottle. Finland.yespr (48915) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAY 25, 2011
Clear golden colour with small to average off-white head.
Floral fruity slightly skunky hoppy bitter aroma with some maltiness.
Floral bitter hoppy flavour. Stronger hoppiness than normally in English Bitters. England failed in WC, was this the reason?
50 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma is slight citrusy and mild herbal hoppy. Sweet and fruity flavoured. Mild herbal touch into a dry and slight bitter finish. Ends crisp citrusy finish.

Pasteurised - maybe split?ralphdot (1093) - Billingham, Durham, ENGLAND - NOV 13, 2011
500ml bottle (Kuikka, Helsinki)
Big hoppy waft on opening and pouring. Perfumey and some husky malts in the aroma - very much the shepherd neame fingerprint. Mid gold, small tight head. Crisp carbonation, and quite a thin palate. Retronasals quite grainy. Quite mushroomy body, lots of malt, grainy, but a great wave of hops too. Finish is mostly bitter and biting noble hops, lots in the range between EKG and Spalt. Enjoyable bitter for a session, not too emasculated by pasteurisation.
4.0% gold colour with a poor head, citrus hop aroma and taste, slightly too much hop. BeerBaboon (2144) - FINLAND - NOV 11, 2010
Golden with white, frothy head. Grassy, floral hop aroma with notes of toast. Soft carbonation and mouthfeel. Surprisingly little bitterness here. I was expecting more. The flavour is a bit on the hoppy side. Some fruit is in the mix.
