COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Pasteurised.
"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.

Pored this one into a pint glass. It’s appearance is dark amber with a tan head. The aroma is a subtle caramel. The flavor is roasted malt. It flows across the palate with a little carbonation. Overall not a bad beer.

MiP (14048) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 23, 2015
Bottle, 4.0%. Slightly roasted aroma. Clear dark brown colour. Good frothy and creamy tan head. The flavour is watery but OK refreshing. Roasted and nutty with a spicy hint of aroma hop. OK for the ABV.

Bamsen78 (4000) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 23, 2015
Bottle. Pours hazy copper brown with airy off-white head. Clear aroma of malt, caramel, yeast and fruit, with some notes of hops. Bitter, hoppy flavour, with pronounced bready, malty and estery notes and touches of caramel. Rough and estery aftertaste. Okay but nothing really impressive.

YigSvartka (195) - Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 21, 2015
Opaque black with slight purplish hue. Small head. Candied dried fruit (cherry emphasis), malt, and caramel aroma. Creamy, mid bodied. Mild roast and candied dried fruit taste, with a dry hopless finish. My low expectations were met.

Vladivostok (311) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2015
Bottled. Dark amber with a lasting off-white head. Accent on malt with just a little bitterness from the hops. Flavour lingers well enough although there is just the hint of something metalic in it. Would probably work better in cask.

beer-yum (769) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 19, 2014
An excellent combination of ingredients provides an tasty brew that is all the more enjoyable due to its lower than expected strength.

Mukavaa juotavaa noinkin laihaksi. Aromilta olisi toivonut enemmän. Hieno on tuo väri kyllä.

cmacklin (363) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 30, 2014
500 ml bottle. Pours a clear dark ruby red with a medium, creamy, long lasting beige head that laces nicely. Aroma is roasted malt, caramel and berries. Sweet flavour of roasted malt, caramel, fruit and a hint of bitter chocolate in the finish. Medium body with a smooth, oily texture and soft carbonation.
