Beese (3305) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2007
Pours a nice golden colour with a large ammount of sediment which makes for a lot of sparkle and a big head. Nice slightly caramel taste with just a hint of saltiness. Quite drinkable.

larsga (7680) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 13, 2007
Huge beige, slightly coarse shiny head, more than 70% of the beer. Shrinks slowly from the bottom up. Light amber faintly hazy body with lots of carbonation. Light fruity apple and soft metal aroma with wooden notes. Deep wooden, roasty taste with strong fruity notes and a touch of yeastiness. Bitter background. Bitter, resiny wooden aftertaste. Very nice. Lots of taste for such a low-alcohol beer. (0.5l bottle.)

Beer5000 (6825) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 12, 2007
500ml bottle. Nice golden body with a huge off-white head. Fruity, malty, caramel aroma. Flavor has a sharp bitter and a bit acidulous maltyness. Quite an interesting English bitter, but not particular great.

jbrus (4988) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - FEB 28, 2007
UPDATED: APR 11, 2009 [email protected], Apr 09, 3.0: Citrus, orange aroma with a hint of caramel. Hazy, amber colour, beige firm head, good lace. Citrus, light sweet, light bitter. Sparkling and fruity dry finish. Not as good as last time. Recipe change? [email protected], Feb 07, 3.6: Nice grassy and herbal aroma with a hint of caramel. Amber color, off-white head, good lace. Some chunks of yeast floating around but I don’t really care if the beer’s good. Grassy and some caramel in the flavor. Light sweet and soft bitterness. Little dry. Great session beer.

duff (5486) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 19, 2006
Bottle. Too light. Some pigfarmy aromas. Grainy malt, metallic finish. Some lemony fizz in the finish. Slightly earthy. Watery finish. Very unexciting.

bierkoning (13813) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - NOV 30, 2006
Bottle conditioned. Amber color, big lasting frothy head. Licoice, nutmeg and malt in the aroma. Very bitter flavor with laurel, licorice and earthy hops. Fishy and salty. Tasty stuff.

Gethinbeer (2452) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - OCT 15, 2006
Pint of. Fruity aroma. Clear amber in appearance with a thin head. Nice fruity flavour with a tangy after taste. Watery palette. I enjoyed a couple of these.
