Clear medium yellow orange amber color with a small to average, frothy - fizzy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, roasted, caramel, old malt, old apples.

From cask. Pours clear and golden orange with a small white head. Aroma is light grainy and herbal hoppy. Bitter, dry and toasted malty. Ends bitter and slight herbal.

Ungstrup (37561) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 16, 2005
[Cask at GBBF 2004] An amber beer with a small white head. The aroma is very hoppy and sweet - quite nice. The flavor is sweet with notes of both hops and grass - very fresh, but the body is thin.

oh6gdx (26488) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 4, 2007
[email protected] Golden colour, not much head. Aroma is nectar, wood and some bitter fruits. Flavour is pretty much the same. Quite long wooden aftertaste.

omhper (25108) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JAN 21, 2002
Sampled cask conditioned. Amber coloured. Rich aromatichoppy smell. Light bodied, dry and fruity. Notes of hay, delicate light malt profile, excellent flowery, fruity hop flavour. Sparkling mouth feel. A top class bitter, remarkably flavourful for being only 3.8%

Warning! Early amateur rating! Creamy and smooth with mild citric hop. Not bitter - easy drinking.

Travlr (24667) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JAN 22, 2010
From notes dated 1997. Cask in Bury. Amber color with a large white head that settles slowly to leave decent lacing. Aroma of floral hops, apples and caramel. Flavor is dominated by malt, but also light spice and a nice bitter finish. Nicely complex.

Leighton (21235) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2013
Cask at the Pickerel, Cambridge. Pours clear gold with a fine, creamy white head. Dusty, dry pale malts on the nose, some toasty grains. Light sweet flavor with dry hay, orange and grains. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Light sweet finish, dry pale malts, dry hay, straw. Simple stuff.
