Papillon (424) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 4, 2009
500 mL Bottle. Gold body with a thin foamy white head that laces the sides as it is sipped. Aroma of sweet malt and grains with a hint of grass. Rich malt flavor speaks up without assaulting the senses. The hops are there too with a citrus-like expression but they don’t overpower. Smooth in the aftertaste and finish. Malt and hops plain and simple, good looks, and good taste. Is this is the Drink of England, then I ought to have been born and raised a Brit.

500 ml bottle bought in Carrefour Arkadia, Warsaw, Poland. Malty taste, very smooth. Grainy and malty palate with some yeast nutes and ideal malty finish. White, medium thick head stays for circa one minute on top. Golden colour. A solid beer.

Ungstrup (38414) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 16, 2009
Bottled. An amber beer with a lazing orangey head. The aroma has notes of malt, caramel, and elderflowers. The flavor is sweet with notes of elderflowers and straw, leading to a bitter finish. Nothing special.

Metalchopz (3535) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 25, 2011
Originally rated October 2008. Comes in a clear bottle and bought at the LCBO as a seasonal offering. Pours a golden-orange colour with a nice creamy slightly off-white head, which leaves a bit of lacing and a thick coat over the brew. The first aroma I got from this one right after its pour was a pilsner scent. This soon went away, and a mild hop nose took over. Full streaming small bubble carbonation and crisp mouthfeel. The taste has a bit of citrus with malt, and the hop is present with slight bitterness, but overall, quite refreshing and well-balanced. Good name representing the colour, and again, I always seem to be impressed with Charles Wells brew for a great session beer.

tseo (155) - Athens, GREECE - JUN 22, 2012
Aroma: Good lemony freshness, a little mineral, a few earthy elements. Some honey, vanilla and peach notes, too. Very good, except for a metallic hue amongst the aromas. Mouthfeel: Thin body with an oily texture. Taste: Bitter start, then a citrusy, dry taste. Some sourish notes. Not much malt character. Good, but a bit shallow. Finish: A mediocre finish. Dry, mineral with a short lasting bitterness. Overall: An easy drinker’s brew. Not great, but I do appreciate its dryness.

Bottle from the Cromwell Road Sainsburys. Pours dark gold with a white head. Floral/grass aroma. Near med body. Flavor is floral/grass with some very slightly roasty malt. Finishes nicely better.

TorbenJensen (1572) - Valby, DENMARK - OCT 10, 2015
Lovely malted in both the nose and mouth. Mostly dry taste which is dominated by caramel and fine hoppy bitterness to follow. It is very complex and at the same time easy to drink. It would just be a shame to drink it too fast for its nuances make the treat worthy.
