Maria (10176) - Thisted, DENMARK - NOV 19, 2008
Courtesy of Fonefan. It’s warm golden with a white head. The aroma has notes of malt, light cooked cabbage and a little fruit. The flavour has sweetness and notes of malt, fruit, candy sugar and bread. The mouthfeel is soft and nice, but the overall impression is a bit too sweet.

TaxiDriver (1472) - Stadland, GERMANY - MAR 21, 2008
Bottle. Malty smell, bitter chocolate - a little bit like a porter... Medium sized white foamy head, good lasting, yellow-orange flat body. Light sweet start, light bitter finish, average duration. Oily texture, light to medium body, soft carbonation. Relatively long lasting. Nice beer with a good alcohol level!

mike_77 (3409) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - SEP 28, 2007
Golden colour with tight white head. A very strong, sweet aroma mainly of strawberry jam but with some peach and tangerine too. Flavour is also sweet although not as overpowering as the aroma. Luckily it’s a fresh sweetness making it a fairly drinkable beer.
