500 ml. dicinal" bottle. Orange to gold colour, with normal head that dissappears sooon. Smell is earthy, grains, hops. Palate is maybe too light, fizzy, but smooth. Taste is rough in the beginning, earthy, caramel, citrus notes. Yes, is similar in character to Czech lager, and it's good.

Thanks to Ruds for this one.

Poured from a 500ml. bottle, best before 13 Apr 12.

Appearance: A brown-orange body (not really golden) with a thin ring of foam that disappears fast. Disappointing.

Smell: Earthy minerals and some bitter fruit.

Taste: Fleshy orange, hint of smoke, very mineral verging on salty. That saltiness kind of lingers but gets better as it warms.

Mouthfeel: Starts strong but thins out a bit. Good carbonation.

Overall: Decent but not a highlight for me.

Pours a darker shade of gold, has a real copper hue to it. Bubbly head has good retention and leaves some nice chunky lacings to the finish.

Grainy aroma, a tad too sweet for my liking.

Despite the malty aroma, hops really dominate on the tongue. Perfumey, herbal, really complex profile for an English brew. Malt profile is biscuity with pronouncedear flavors.

Nice mouthfeel, restrained carbonation doesn't get in the way of the complex flavors.

Don't usually like this style, but this is really well developed. Nice beer.

Served in a Gale Sayers shaker pint glass.

Got this guy from his new, round bottle. Gotta say, I almost prefer the more flask-like model... Anyway, this stuff pours a clear golden straw topped by over a finger of off-white foam. The nose comprises wheat, light orange peel, and very light banana. The taste sticks to the smell's guns, altering pretty much nothing. Fair enough. The body is a hefty light, with a very light moderate carbonation and a wet feel. Overall, a nice little EPA, nothing amazing, but something easily taken down with moderate pleasure. And, yes, I could sound more like a humanizing robot...I just choose not to...
