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.

Bottle (obviously) at The Beer Hall....sfhodense (4788) - 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.

Gigantyczna piana, mocno zbita, szkoda że szybko maleje. Zapach bardzo intensywny, kwiatowy. W smaku wyrażny posmak goryczki chmielowej, finisz także wytrawny. Tego dobrego bittera polecam każdemu beersearcher (2382) - Glendale, California, USA - AUG 12, 2012
Pours a lovely orange color. A sweet smelling aroma with undertones of apple to it. Nice and sparkly with a full malt profile. This is closer to what I like in an English beer. vipinvelp (4512) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - AUG 7, 2012
Light orange clear color with small white foam head. Aroma is yeast and malt with some ground tones. Taste is mix of sweet and bitter, prevailing bitter. Long bitter aftertaste. (Barnsley 201208) Huhzubendah (3736) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 3, 2012
Bottle shared by drabmuh. Thanks Matt!
A: Clear, light orange appearance with a half inch of white head that leaves a good amount of lacing on the pint glass.
S: Fruity, malty, and distinctively British.
T: A very fine beer I have here. Balanced very well, with pleasant flavors of biscuits and fruity malts. The beer finishes with a lip smacking bitterness that begs for another swig.
M: Excellent feel. Light in body with just the right carbonation.
D: Really tasty and very drinkable. I imagine myself at a pub in England throwing back many pints of this brew someday.
