in MS Gabriella, Viking Line - 15/0/2010. Hazy dark coppery colored Ale with a little white head. Aroma contained apple, lightly roasted barley and a slighly citrussy finish. Flavor was sour apple and dryish and citrussy dry hoppy finish. Palate was light+, quite fresh and crispy highly carbonated. Quite surprisingly sour English Ale with some character. Didn’t still quite suit me.
Maybe I underrate this one it is bitter almost sour. Funny because it is a nice smelling nice looking beer but perhaps just not to my taste. There is a bit of a leathery taste almost like a weak percolated coffee but I can see that some would find it really tasty. tkrjukoff (4335) - SWEDEN - MAR 20, 2010
Deep brown-red color with fluffy head. Yeasty and dry hoppy aroma. Low carbonation, very little sweetness but plenty of bitter hops and fresh-fruity flavor. Strong bitterness in palate and the aftertaste lasts very long. Really nice. Croff (164) - Ostra Sonnarslov, SWEDEN - MAR 11, 2010
Pours a clear dark amber. This off white fluffy head that fades to lace. Weak fruit grain hop aroma. Weak taste of hay, hop, bit of malt. Medium carbonation. Body is towards the lighter side. Weak bitter, hop hay, grain, hint of sweet and metallic aftertaste. Not an offensive brew, but no character whatsoever. Thylacine (526) - Tasmania, AUSTRALIA - FEB 24, 2010

500ml bottle bought at Systembolaget, Kiruna. Copper-brown body topped by a decent off-white head with lots of small dimples. Toasty malts and hints of floral hops to the nose. Malty character in flavour with caramel added by a touch of dried apricot. Smooth bitter ending. Medium bodied. So and so (Tromsø, 03.02.2010). FatPhil (16929) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 16, 2010
500ml bottle (Viking Line Hel-Sto) - shared with Alfa - thanks!Plovmand (8595) - Grindsted, DENMARK - DEC 29, 2009
Reddy brown, healthy tight doughy head. Crisp carbonation. Rich woody and nutty aroma. Slightly sour tang highlighted by the cold. Pleasnat woodiness in the mouth. Some fruity ester retronasals. Lovely nutty and mushroomy taste. A bit emasculated, I’m sure this is brewed stronger and watered down. Finish pleasnatly nutty and mushroomy. Not as good as I remember it, it used to be a stonker, but still very pleasant.
Bottle. hazy amber with a medium off white head. Fruity. light marzipan aroma with some hoppy and caramel notes. The flavour is toasted, toffee, fruit and bitter hops. Ends up rather hoppy bitter. mjs (7590) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 21, 2009
(Bottled one as Founders English Ale) Poured amber and clear with medium sized, white and dense head. Aroma contained malts and strawberry. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, hint of roastedness, bitterness and acridity. Acrid aftertaste. Quite bad one. fonefan (50729) - VestJylland, DENMARK - DEC 2, 2009
