Maria (10212) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2008
Cask. It’s a dark amber with an aroma of malt, fruit and pumpkin. The flavour has a light, smooth sweetness with notes of caramel, roasted malt and a slightly dry and bitter citrus. It’s uncomplicated and charming.

Clear amber with tiny off white head. Sweet fruity aroma with mild hoppy and caramel notes. Flavor likewise with floral hops and a discrete bitter end.

Cask @ Aarhus, 2008.
Pours deep brown amber with a great, creamy yellow-white head. Aroma is very pleasant, fine caramel, pine, grass and flowery hops. Fine carbonation, lightly creamy. Good flavour, some caramel with a great hops profile. Dry bitterness with pine and grassy hops. A big positive surprise for me.

From cask at Charlies. Pours hazy orange with a copperish glare and an off-white head. Light hoppy and mild acidic aroma. Light sweet and mild fruity flavour. Ends with a decent bitterness and light fruity note.

3.4
sm89walt (2065) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 22, 2008
Cask - Ye Olde Beverlie, Canterbury. The body of this ale is a clear amber colour with a thin and airy off-white head. Fairly sweet caramel malt aromas with floral undertones and a marginal basic hop tone. Flavour-wise, this beer tastes of caramel malts and an earthy hoppiness. A dry, slightly resiny hop finish and a clean, smooth mouthfeel with a light to medium body.

3.5
HarryFlashman (469) - Chatham, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2008
This ale seems to taste of everything - it’s sweet, lemony, hoppy, malty and burnt in taste, but above all strong - it’s 5.4% and tastes it. Similar to Neame’s Autumn Ale Late Red and nearly as good. Man this ale is good!

BoozyBugger (15) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JAN 16, 2008
Cask at Pig and Whistle Chelmsford Essex. Long lasting head, full toffee and spiced fruit aroma,long taste of dried fruits and oak wood. All in all a very good pint

3.2
weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2008
Cask at the Olde Market Tavern in Altrincham (near Manchester). Pleasantly surprised, I’m a staunch bitter is not my drink man. Nice dark brown/amber colour with a thick white head. Slightly bitter finish with hints of caramel. Not bad at all.
