thebeertourist (5188) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 8, 2006
Bottle. Hazy, orangey amber with a lot of sediment and a decent head. Grassy hop aroma. Bitter flavours, touch of toffee and fruity hoppiness, dry. A fairly average bitter.

HarryFlashman (469) - Chatham, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2006
Sampled at the Medway Beer Festival 2006 on 18/11/06 - Fairly lightish in colour and bland tasting - very little flavour. I would expect better from Norfolk carrot crunchers: whilst backward, Ive always seen them as real ale aficianados!

Rune (11649) - Troms, NORWAY - OCT 14, 2006
Mahogany in colour with very nice clarity. Small foamy layer. Fruity and hoppy profile in aroma and taste. Flavour has also got lightly honeyed malt. Flat and dry finish (Half pint on gravity at the stunning Dove Street Inn, Ipswich 21.09.2006).

Finn (6824) - Troms, NORWAY - OCT 11, 2006
Cask at The Fat Cat Ipswich 22 Sep 2006. Dark golden coloured. A tiny head. Fruity aroma. Attractive fruity and malty flavour. A cautios bitter aftertaste that lasts. Well balanced.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - OCT 6, 2006
This pours a bright golden body, slightly orange, with a slender white head. The aroma is toffee with tea leaves and a lime twist. Quite dry. The toffee base sets the stage for a leafy bitterness that finishes off the drink. Slight lime aftertaste. Decent.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2006
A Mes rate: Cask @ the JDW in Peterborough while we were waiting for the beer fest. Hoppy grassy nose. Standard appearance but with some good lace. Very hoppy flavour with the expected crisp clean finish. Nothing out of the ordinary.

rederic (3293) - montral, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 23, 2006
Bright honey gold color, with a multitude of flaky sediments of yeasty swirling around, with a fluffy white head, fresh barley malt nose, flowery peachy fruity hops, earthy pale malt, hint of spiciness, and orange peels fruitiness in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a juicy flowery hops character, with a soft piney accent, leafy and a citrus fruitiness, toasted malt, leading towards a hops dryness finish.

ALLOVATE (2958) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 17, 2006
Cask, gravity flow @ the Fur & Feather Inn, Woodbastwick, Norfolk.
Aaaah, straight from the brewery next door. Poured a bright yellow gold with a light, white frothy lather that left some firm lacing. Very subtle, short lived aroma of fresh kilned pale grains, spicy hops and orange peel. Well pronounced, summery malts, fresh squeezed oranges and peppery, herbal, earthy hops dominate the palate. Nice woody, piney edge develops as it goes. Body is quite light, very sessionable, and had just a prickle of residual carbonation to make it move swiftly across the tongue. Finish is very spicy and fresh, firmly bitter, juicy and shows some more piney notes before tailing off quickly. This was Friday nights and Sunday sessions all rapt up into one. What a bitter should be, nicely balanced, simple, light and tasty. Very nice!!!

Svesse (8007) - Hsselby, SWEDEN - AUG 9, 2006
(Cask at City Arms, Manchester, 28 July) Colour is dark amber with tawny hints, firm off-white head. Nose is fruity with orange, apricots and a dusty hop aroma. Taste starts fruity with notes of orange and apricots, turns drier with a malty backbone and ends in a bitter finish with a nice dusty hop flavour. A bitter in perfect balance. Great stuff!
