faroeviking (11220) - Chupando chellas es como ellas, FAROE ISLANDS - APR 16, 2008
Botella. Clear golden amber with a medium creamy bubbly off-white head leaving a good sticky lacing. Fruity and malty aroma with some bitter hops. Good mouthfeel. Mild fruity flavour with toasted malt, some caramel, mild bitter hops and grass. Dry mild bitter finish.

DougShoemaker (3146) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 21, 2008
Aroma of fresh, leafy hops, some decent malt underpinning, amber, with a small off-white head. Flavour has a malty start, backed up nicely with a bitter hops infusion. Balanced, light bodied, a dry finish, pleasing mouthfeel. A very good session ale. Thanks to My neighbor Jean’s sister Dorothy. A very nice treat.

HarryFlashman (469) - Chatham, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2008
Not bad, but too many flavours in there for me. Not enough hops and too much fruit.

3.6
shoestring (427) - larkhall, SCOTLAND - FEB 5, 2008
Yellow golden and fluffy indeed. Some frutiness and caramel as usual from Thwaites. I got oranges and apples in there. Nice hoppiness.

3.2
sm89walt (2080) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 16, 2008
Bottle. A lightly yellowed golden coloured ale with a fine yet fluffy white head. Fairly strong citric hop aromas and a caramel malt quality. The flavours are again rather hoppy, but this time they’re more spicy in character with some sweet malts on the front of the tongue. A long and clean bitter finish that is often grassy. Perhaps a bit sugary sweet at times but highly drinkable.

3.3
BoozyBugger (15) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JAN 16, 2008
Hoppier than expected, quite a caramel sweet taste to it. A bit light on the finish, overall not bad but not spectacular
