COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An epic brew from Achilles, a red-brown rich and malty masterpiece with just a dash of hoppy bitterness for balance.

Bottle. The aroma of yeast, light fruity. The white creamy head is small with a long duration, the body is dark orange. The taste is fruity and yeasty, light sour and a little bit like bread. The body is creamy, medium strong and with a soft carbonation.

Balazs (785) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 24, 2010
This beer pours with a hazy amber color with plenty of white head that doesn’t go away completely. Citrus, spices, orange peel and a slight hint of vanilla in the aroma. Lively carbonation, malty taste with a minor hoppy aftertaste. Alcohol blends nicely, gives a medium warming effect. Nice one overall.

Hazy amber colored beer with a small white lacing head. Sweet malty and a mild hoppy aroma with some spicies. Flavor is malt based with a smooth mouthfeel, fruity alcohols and esters. Finish is a light hoppy bitter and some alcohol. Fine.

75cl bottle, no date but I’ve had it for over 2 years. Gusher. Fleck-filled cloudy amber body with large beige head. Aroma is moderately sweet, yeasty spicy, orange, candi sugar, light turpentine. Taste is sweet, orange, candi sugar, yeast, spice, some alcohol, light pear, honey. Smooth medium-full body, holds the alcohol fairly well.

Golden coloured beer, lovely smell: sweet, fruity and yeasty. Tastes the same: first fruity, then malty, then slightly bitter aftertaste. I like it!
