Cask at Dronning Louise, Esbjerg. Deep amber brown colour with a nice steady beige head. Good malty and caramel aroma with some dark fruit. Pleasant mouthfeel. the flavour has a good deep maltiness with toasty caramel, some dark fruits and a good bitter hoppiness.

deyholla (10709) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 14, 2009
Tap at Charlies. Poured a dark amber with an off-white head. Odd aroma of malts and carmel. Flavor doesnt do anything for me, quite unpleasant if anything. This beer is not for me.

Absolutely fantastic pint at the mabel tavern, ive been waiting a while to try this on cask, love the bottled version but this was fantastic. everything i like in the bottle but dialed up a notch with a great body! huge fruity body...stalky raisins perhaps and a great lingering bitterness....we walked down to russel square and i could still taste it 20 mins later!

JoeinDahlem (1472) - Berlin, GERMANY - APR 1, 2009
Cask at the Betsey Trotwood. Pretty red-amber color with lowing white head. Nose of hop resin, like pellets, and not unpleasant. Soft carbonation with mild hop-bitterness, emphasizing that green, resiny aroma. Nice enough stuff.

yngwie (16718) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 21, 2009
Cask at the Wharf, Aalborg. It pours a clear, slightly dark golden body with a nice finger-thick off-white head leaving lacings. Malty nose with caramel and a subtle piney and citrusy hop print. The flavor presents piney, orangey hops on a malty background with a good dash of caramel. Some orange-peel bitterness blend in, leading to a bitter, piney finish. Medium to full body, smooth and gentle. A quite dry one, but ber-quaffable, the kind you could enjoy all-night without getting very bored. (090205)

Cask at The Warf, Aalborg. Clear amber body, small white diminishing head. Malty aroma but alsom some citrus and freshness. Thin flat body. Well balanced flavor.
