Light brown colour. Aroma is a little woody and also has some hop. The light carbonation is a minus point. Flavour is generously malty and has a rather dry hoppy finish. Dedollewaitor (16142) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 24, 2011
Bottle @ Chris O’s. Thanks guys. Pours unclear amber with a small white head. Smooth. Bread, grain and hay. Dry and short end. crispi (107) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 6, 2011
0.5l bottle from DM’s. Clear Amber, with some head. Clear, with mild carbonation. Taste of malt and toffee, with smooth mouthfeel. Nice bitterness to offset the sweetness. Shame it isn’t a bit stronger. ("Strong Pale Ale" at 4.1% ? I don’t think so). Could be a good session beer - if I could find it on tap. MadIndian (2743) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 31, 2011
Bottle from SJ.
Orange hazed pour. Aromas of spices. honey and malt.
. Grassy hop taste with hints of honey and bread. Not bad. Gramoit (490) - Surrey, ENGLAND - JUL 29, 2011
A good sized head that slowly dissipates to a thick lace. A pretty strong thick palate considering the 4.1% alcohol content. Would not class to be a session beer. Fruit and caramel dominate the taste. Overall not bad beer at all, and one I would like to review again as I can see it being a grower.

Kopparfärgad öl med vitt skum. Doftar mycket malt och bröd. Bra beska. Lite dragning åt tjeckisk öl? tiong (7259) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUL 20, 2011
Bottle from K-Supermarket Kamppi. Originally rated on 2.11.2010. Nice, quite well balanced bitter. TET (3029) - Kaarina, FINLAND - JUL 8, 2011
Copperbrown beer with a medium and blond head. Aroma is quite fresh, fruitness, some toffee, orangemarmelade and berries. Taste is purely biscuity and some toffeeish maltyness, some aromatic, nicely dry also in the beginning, medium wooden bitterness. Balanced aroma and taste, enjoyable and no musty. Quite light to drink, balanced carbonation, nice to drink. Succesfull bitter without annoying musty, quite aromatic and pleasant. AshtonMcCobb (6581) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 1, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 4, 2011 This time, the nose has oranges and malt. There’s less grapefruit on the taste this time and more malt and some ginger nut biscuits going on. The sum of the parts of this beer is excellent, so overall mark is higher than aroma or taste.
Original rating 01/07/11 - 7/4/7/4/14 = 3.6
50cl bottle. Pours amber with gentle bubbles and a good head. The nose has delicate malt and some grapefruit as well as grapefruit pith. The taste has a massive grapefruit note on a gentle malt profile. The palate has a medium structure and texture and a lovely fresh finish, Overall, a tastey ale that could be sessioned.

From a 500ml bottle on 26/6/2011. Pours golden orange with a thick head. The aroma is fairly subdued - just a little bready malt and some cider like notes - which doesn’t give much of a hint of the flavours to come. In the mouth, there is heaps going on, and it’s quite impressive from something that’s only 4.1%. There’s a nice malt/hop balance, with some sweet caramel, fruits (particularly orange) and marmalade. Has a sharp, spicy, almost salty, hop finish which lingers long. The carbonation starts out as little high but seems to settle down in the glass. Very nice stuff.
