Bottle courtesy of gethinbeer. Pale amber with a tight white head. Nose is softly malty with a light woody/herbal hop aroma. A little bit of soft orange peel but it’s quite malt dominant. Not sweet though, which is a plus. A little bit of lingering earthiness. Velkyal (321) - Gordonsville, Virginia, USA - SEP 7, 2012
Pours a brilliantly clear amber, topped with an inch of firm white head, which leaves lovely lacing down the glass. The aroma is sweet bready malt and a touch of marmelade. Tastewise, fresh bread, a graininess that reminds me of digestive biscuits, all balanced with a soft sweet orange bitterness. Medium bodied and insanely drinkable, this is truly one of the great beers of the world. RedSox2004 (1897) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - SEP 3, 2012
Clear amber with a one-finger off white rocky head that had great retention and nice lace. Rich caramel malt aromas as a base, with toast, earthy and grassy hops and a gentle lemony smell. Rich malt sweetness up front with a modest bitterness poking through. Lemon tea, earthiness, and floral hops are also present. Medium body and carbonation, thick/sticky texture, and a modestly sweet finish. jmohno (1619) - Iowa, USA - SEP 3, 2012
Light copper gold,pretty much what the picture looks like. Short froth,light lacing.
Aroma is mild floral, pepper,butterscotch,mild carmel or toffee,light toast.
Taste is fairly noble hop like peppe with some grassy pine,,toasty,carmel. English butterscotchSolid good taste good drinkability. Nice kind of toasty foamy mouthfeel at first, strong english character. Solid english pale ale with lots of character.Not real big on the english taste but its a nice pale ale. rubbishystuff (2538) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 30, 2012
Got a slightly old bottle so it didn’t taste totally fresh but you could tell something good was behind it all. Not as malty at first as I thought and starts a little fizzy, smooths out and the various flavors hit you in different parts of the drink. I’d like to try the cask version. Serving: Bottle

Bottle (obviously) at The Beer Hall....sfhodense (4789) - Odense NØ, DENMARK - AUG 29, 2012
The beer pours a deep orangeish golden with a very small but well retained head.
The aroma is odd, malty, grainy, lightly buttery, with some chlorine, some leafy hops, some dead leaves. It get’s more pleasant the longer it sits in the glass but the first few whiffs were just on the south side of pleasant.
The flavor is however wonderful, lots of leafy hops, nicely bitter. Good marmalade and lightly toasty malt. Balanced, bitter, flavorful, all together enjoyable.
The carbonation is low, but the palate is still lightly prickly.
Pours amber with a beige head. Aroma is caramel and pine. Flavour is caramel, pine and herbal hop. stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - AUG 28, 2012
Pours a clear and copper beer with a white head. The aroma is malt and caramel. The flavor follows the nose with additional hops. The palate is bitterness with some sweetness. Overall an average beer. Lukaduke (3206) - Gray, Maine, USA - AUG 23, 2012
Pours a copper color with a two finger white fizzy foam that settles out quickly... Aromas are pleasant but rather subtle. Toasted malts, honey wheat and a touch of floral hop notes. On the palate this beer is a pure clean balance of a bitter. Nice clean honey wheat flavors roll into a bitter earthy dry finish. Nice easy drinker thats true to style. jlanning215 (363) - Peoria, Illinois, USA - AUG 23, 2012
