"Full Flavoured Ale"
A traditional dark ruby ale, delivering full flavour at just 4% ABV. Full aromatic barley malts and an exquisite blend of hops combined to create a wonderful balance of sweet biscuit and subtle fruit flavours, with a hint of chocolate bitterness.

Grima (2172) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - SEP 1, 2012
Bottle from Stockmann Herkku, Helsinki, Finland!
Pours bright ruby red, with fine high, creamy off-white head. Smells sugary malty-sweet with slight hop aroma. Starts bitter hoppy, strong malty-caramelly, with some slight coffee in background. Middle part is bitter, with roasted malts and caramel. Finish is more hoppy, well bitter, slightly malty sweet with some caramel.

Gerbeer (2221) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 5, 2012
500 ml bottle. Pours a beautiful mahogany read/brown with medium head. Aromas of toast, cereal/grain, and hints of dark fruit and caramel. Definitely a dusty biscuit flavor, along with dates and a bit of nuttiness. Full flavor, as stated.

Grzesiek79 (3396) - Radom, POLAND - JUL 20, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2013 Łagodny smak piwa. Brak nagazowania, karmelowo-goryczkowy posmak. Wyczuwalna lekka słodycz. Dominują tu raczej słody karmelowe. Piwo ma kolor bursztynowo-brązowy

manuchampions (1241) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 17, 2012
500ml bottle. Pours a dark reddish brown with ample cream head. Aroma is caramel malt, light roast, some toffee ad dark fruit. Surprisingly full palate, good malt back with some roast, caramel, spice, toffee and dark fruit again. Finish lingers well on the tongue with a hint of bitterness. Better than expected.

Allting här i livet är inte tipptopp. Adnams Gunhill är en viktig påminnelse om det. Ibland är det nyttigt att ta del av sådant som är lite halvdant och tråkigt, om inte annat för att bättre uppskatta det som är just tipptopp. Adnams, du fyller din funktion med beröm godkänt.

ALLOVATE (2540) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 31, 2012
Tried this one back in August 2011.
Deep brown and shimmering in the lights with a plump, off-white crown that holds and laces well - admittedly an attractive number. Aroma has an initial sulphury burst before some dusty roasted malt, sweet, burnt sugar and stone fruit notes come into play, earthy and musty overall. Quite soft, soapy meets smooth in mouthfeel, very light in body. Dry, obscenely woody with a good wallop of roasted peanut and almond flavour. Spicy, earthy backend, astringent malt swallow before more dry, roasted malt and nut notes in the finish. Looks the part but is absent of character and filtered of charm. Quaffable at best. (50cL, BB 31/05/12, Budgen’s, Withycombe Village, Exmouth, Devon)

Boring beer that is made to look interesting. Does not taste much but looks like a proper craft beer. In Sweden its brewed by mass-producing giants Spendrups, i.e if you want your beer to taste something, try something other than this..
