Notes from old review...
Served at cellar temperature in wine goblet. This beer seems to have a musty aroma, fair bit of toffee in there. Looks quite nice with a clear amber body and a dense offwhite head atop. The body is full with a creaminess to it. Light toffee flavours dominate with a bit of hopiness adding the a bitter end note. Not bad but seems a bit unremarkable. weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2008
500ml bottle from my local bargain booze. Pretty orange in appearance with a reasonable white head but quickly faded. Light bitter aftertaste with a little citrus and hops thrown in. Didn’t hate it but wasn’t impressed.

500 ml bottle. Attractive golden color, frothy white head. Floral hop aroma. Fresh malty flavor, well-balanced bitterness. Smooth mouthfeel. Quite nice. raymondwave (931) - FINLAND - AUG 25, 2008
Bottle 0.5 l. Lager golden, thin lager head. Slightly musty hayish nose, orange. Flavor is malty, citrus bitter. Some mineral water in the background, salty? Slightly sour and acidic in a Finnish lager way. Some very stingy perfumy notes hit after a couple of sips. Strange combo, packs a lot of pils like qualities. sirPino (883) - Zawiercie/Sosnowiec, POLAND - JUL 30, 2008

Bottle transparent (white), 500 ml
Appearance: Pours cloudy but very lively orange with slightly orangy - hued. Thick, frothy, rather small but strong and longly lasting head. Head is regular in its structure with regular bubbles. Body is medium carbonated. There traces of lacing.
Aroma: Nice fruity, orangy - clementine hoppy touch from New, Zeland Gem and Hallertau hops, refreshing hints of lime. Aroma all in all is gentle not imposing and of a faint origin. Caramelly - malty character is hidden.
Flavour: Nice chewy front, slightly bitter on palate, aromatic mineral - fruity retronasal aroma, distinguishable notes of lime, orange, clementine, rounded taste thanks to carmelized malted barley geving chewy - malty ballancing character of the beer. Surprisingly complex when it comes to a simple bitter, maybe thanks to this New Zeland hoppy accent. Tangy, some grainy aftertaste, smooth texture, easy going, slightly salty. Finish duration is average.
Palate: Body is medium, texture is smooth, carbonation is medium to lively as beer seems slightly salty, finish feel is very clean and lightly to moderate astringent.
A bi on the tiny side - ales. Ho-hum. still some pungent bits et.al - & is still quite a clean drop.
I’d drink more - I dont think you can go to wrong on this if you’re a beer drink. Wanky raters many not dig it. It’s humble, yet true gam (3956) - brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUL 13, 2008
