JonMoore (2067) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2006 Bottle conditioned. Old gold coloured with a slim white head. Fruity aroma (apples?) with some interesting hops. taste-wise my first thoughts were that it was all over the place; followed by, I like it. Disparate elements that it just manages to meld together in time. Hops, fruit, caramel, sweet malts and a medium bitter long finish. Full bodied with a slightly flatish mouthfeel. I lilke it.

DeepBlack (386) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2006
Bottle from the old indoor market in Derby. Not bottle conditioned. Bit fizzy. Pale brown incolour. Quite quaffable for the 6.2% strength, mind you I had just finished a bit of a tough day at work, so that helped it slid down nicely.

shoestring (439) - larkhall, SCOTLAND - MAY 31, 2007
Bottled - Hollies Hotal , Blackpool. Yes very nice. Very cloudy in my glass, mirky orange with sticky head. Smokiness comes through and very drinkable despite strength.

JorisPPattyn (10137) - BELGIUM - AUG 14, 2003
Extremy huge, creamy and white head, irregular. Dull orange colour, slightly hazy. Sweet yoghurt drink nose, mango! In the taste a bitterness, vaguely hoppy, doesn't quite succeed to cover up the same papaya or mango-flavoured sweet yoghurt drink flavour, which forms the base. There are some hints of clove, maybe cardemom too, lemonzest and even crystal malt. It's weird all the same. A bit pappy mouthfeel, nearly chewy. Lactic impression. I would never claim I dislike this. I only wonder if this taste was intended as such.

Spiesy (2337) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - FEB 7, 2004
Bottled. Ever so slightly cloudy amber with a very large white fluffy head. Quite conditioned and a little to gassy but the aroma and flavour make up for it. Fruity, floral rose petal aroma. Seductively sweet with a floral, fruity twist finish with a dry bitter finish.

3.6
StueyD (1586) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUL 4, 2007
A dark, reddish orange coloured beer with a frothy white head. A malty nose, caramel and a banana-like fruitiness. A bittersweet taste, a dry malty flavour is followed by a sweet caramel taste, toffee apple, then banana again. A smooth, not too sweet finish. (Cask - The Ouse Amateur Sailing Club, King’s Lynn, Norfolk).

thebeertourist (5188) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 10, 2007
Bottle. Clear amber with a big creamy beige head. Citrus and caramel aroma. Caramel flavours matched by good citrussy hoppiness. Medium body. Very good.

oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 6, 2008
Bottled. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is fruits, nectary and wooden with some slight oxidized and vanillaish notes. Flavour i raisins, fruits, vanilla and fruits. Ends in vanilla and fruits along with some bittering wood.

3.5
fiulijn (21522) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 30, 2004
Cloudy blond color. Earthy-grassy hop nose. Quite smooth, malty, over-bitter.
