SmellGood (339) - Memphis, Tennessee, USA - APR 26, 2005
A bit more carbonated and sweeter than I prefer but not a bad brew. I was not able to appreciate the hops past the sweetness of this beer.

RateandPillage (426) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 23, 2005
Pours medium brown with some red highlights and thin beige head. Aroma of sweet malt. Medium to high carbonation. Flavor of caramel malt, and slight hints of vanilla and cocoa. The hop bitterness is considerably higher than I expected, but appreciated. A little dry, but overall not too bad.

YogiBeera (2498) - New Jersey, USA - APR 21, 2005
Bottle: Nice deep red colored brew with a small rocky head and medium carbonation. Sweet strawberry nose also band aid and medium malt traces. Tastes fruity with a somehow astringent bittness, way to much carbonation makes it hard to taste other flavors. The more you try you get a medium long lasting unripe peppers taste. It seems as this beer is still searching for it*s direction.

pivo (2590) - GERMANY - APR 20, 2005
Sweet malt in the nose with a little vegetable aroma, chesnut color, sticky foamy low head. Caramel, candy malt - sugary. Light but broad bitter - fairly strong. Hops a bit stale. Medium body. OK beer.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2005
Nothing to look at but an appealing fruity aroma with a hint of old leather. Warm, expansive taste with a surprisingly late bitter hit. The second bottle was even better.

Mungo (2471) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2005
Bottle. Despite significant increase in strength over cask version it lacks the richness and depth of flavours I enjoyed on cask. Overly toasty finish with crystal malt.

pilsnerrogge (2536) - Finspång, SWEDEN - APR 16, 2005
Amber red colour, Rich head. Fruity malt-aroma with a touch of berries. Smooth, somewhat nutty, malt flavour. Nice, dry finish where the alcohol add some extra bite.

robertsreality (2460) - Minnesota, USA - APR 10, 2005
Red Coloring with Big Off-White Frothy Head. Fruity and Malt Aroma with a Slight Alcohol Twinge. Sweet Malt, Dry Hops Taste...Creamy Heavy Mouthfeel with Noticeable Alcohol Warming. Subtle Taste. Drinkably Nice!

thegreenrooster (3304) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - APR 1, 2005
Pour is a deep red with no head. Aroma is fruity and malty. Flavor is plum and prune with a hint of nutmeg. Lots of subtle things going on with this brew. Lots of malts and fruit flavors to recomend this brew.
