Vignale (3508) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 11, 2011
Någonstans mellan brown ale och premium ale. Mer malt än humlekaraktär. Fruktig och blommig med nötter, karamell och skogspromenad i smakbilden. Bra! Kommer mer till sin rätt på fat. Alla smaker djupare, munkänslan lenare. Drucken på the Spread Eagle, Liss, Hampshire, UK

hayduke (5033) - Eureka, California, USA - SEP 4, 2011
From a cask in London. It came in the glass dark copper color with a small white head. Good nose of malts and nuts. Body medium and mouthfeel creamy smooth with low carbonation. Flavor of caramel malts and nuts. Bitter finish. Easy drinking

After the beer was served in the glass there was found a lasting quantity wall adhesive light brown foam collar which was fine and even of structure. The beer also contained much carbonic acid in the glass. The beer has a clear brown color and a sweet taste. The after tast of the beer is hoppy bitter with a roasted malty touch . This beer smells malty.

johndoughty (5176) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 29, 2011
Cask. My second rate of a beer in both cask and bottle form. This was tried whilst on holiday in the Isle of Man wth my lovely wife Glenys in July 2011. For some reason it is fairly easy to obtain on the island.Not a lot of body and lacks complexity.Taste what it is- a bitter for mass cosumption. Boring and bland.

MrHangover (4192) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUL 24, 2011
On tap @ Harbourlights, Noordwijk, Netherlands. Colour is brown, with a red glow over it. Flavour is nutty, roasted and malty. Flavour has a bittersweet touch in it and it goes down pretty well. Nice find.

RexTalionis (3614) - FINLAND - JUN 5, 2011
At Kitty’s, Helsinki. Poured dark reddish brown in colour with a small light tan head. Roasted notes in aroma. Light sweet malty notes in flavour. Felt a bit watered down. Odd sweet ’kotikalja’ taste in the end.
