Cask @ Charlies Bar, Cph.
Pours deep redish nut-brown with a small bubbly, off-white head. Aroma is sweet, some caramel and toffee. Lightly burnt and ashy with a hint of chocolate. Low, soft carbonation - just a tad watery. Flavour is lightly roasted, weak chocolate and caramel. A mild, dry bitterness with a flowery edge. Finishes off with some dry chocolate.

3.2
cellar (508) - Dublin, IRELAND - OCT 25, 2008
Amber with nice head. Mild hoppy aroma of flowers and fruit. Flavour is starting out sweet and finish with nice bitterness. No carbonated, creamy mouth feel.

3.1
yespr (45456) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUN 1, 2008
From cask at Charlies. Pours cloudy orange with a lacing white head. Light malty and bitter aroma. Flavour holds a mild citrus fruity note to a somewhat vague malt base. Goes into a solid bitterness in the finish and ends quite dry. Crisp and clean bitter.

bhensonb (15195) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 25, 2008
Cask at Mable’s Tavern near King’s Cross. Darker amber color with an off-white head. Malt, light caramel, is the aroma. Less than medium body. Fruit slightly overlayed by roasted caramel. A bit harsh. Bitter of some sort balances this at the finish. Good, but more malt than hop for most of the drink.
