Bottled. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is diacetyl and some grass along with malts. Flavour is very much boring. Very boring.

cgarvieuk (25704) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 16, 2009
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2009 light copper ... big off white head ... light tofffe nose .... soft metalic fruit malt ... quite UK in its meatalic bitterness ... decent if unexciting ... this is from n900 easy use

omhper (25546) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 9, 2005
Bottled. Brownish amber, brief head. Light citrusy nose with a hint of metal. Dry with clean, hard, primitive malt character. Some toffee and oranges. Grassy, salty finish with medium bitterness. Nice flavourwise, but the mouthfeel is fizzy and harsh.

Slightly hazy amber beer. Toffee on the nose. Light crispy palate. Toffee malt, crisp. Just a little hop fruit and bitterness coming through before the dry finish. Not bad.

Amber color. Some malt aroma. Malt and caramel flavor, with a light but nice hoppy touch, and a reasonable ending bitterness.

Golden to amber color. Some fudge aroma, light caramel and paper. The flavor is lacking of malt and hop, but the body is quite strong and the bitterness high.

harrisoni (19165) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2009
33cl bottle from GBBF 09, Well this isn’t too interesting. Some toasty notes, some caramel. Pretty empty on the finish too. Probably some diacetyl as well. Not really any hop either. In an English style? Well if you wanted to make a beer with diacetyl and not much flavour then yes, it is in an English style.

rlgk (18852) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 16, 2005
Amber/orange color, small head. Nice toffee aroma with some grassy notes. Citrus flavor with elder. More and more hops coming through in the flavor.
