Good beer, although in my opinion there are better beers. Surely try this once when you compare i t to Barbar.

rauchbier (3775) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2004
Bottle conditioned. Gold, moderate rocky white head, and good condition. Good honey aromas mixed with Pilsen like hops. More honey sweetness in the mouth, delicate hop flavour and a good yeastiness. Dry and pleasantly hop bitter in the finish, slight soapiness developing towards the end.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 30, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2005 (Bottle 33 cl) A golden ale which is reasonably clear until I pour the sediment. Then the color is grey-orange. Very aromatic, along the style of a "Triple" or a paler trappist like Orval. Spicy and refined with quite a lot of sweetness which is at the same time rather discreet. Quite nice. 110304

Bottled. Hazy orange colour with big slightly off-white head. Aroma is spices, fruits, nuts and some fudgeish notes. Flavour is nuts, fruits, some sugary notes as well as some grassy- and earthyness. Aftertaste is nutty, fruity, toffeeish and mildly earthy in a pleasant mix.

jgb9348 (5558) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAY 26, 2011
Hazy golden coloured body with a thin white head that fades fast. Aroma of nice yeast, honey, coriander seed, grass and a lot of flowers. Light to Medium-bodied; Assertive grassy and floral taste with a good dose of malt to balance with a pleasant and surprisingly complex finish that shows alcohol, malt, sugars and a good yeastie note. Aftertaste shows a subdued finale with the coriander seed and yeast playing the largest parts, but the pleasantness of a floral finish with a touch of hops is nice. Overall, a very pleasant and enjoyable beer with good flavours throughout and a complexity to enjoy. To think that this is just a typical beer that you can find everyday and enjoy without question or savouring is amazing. I sampled this 33 cL stubby bottle purchased at the Bier Tempel in Bruxelles, Belgium on 02-January-2011 for €2,50 sampled at home in Washington on this side of the pond on 26-May-2011. Best by date of 16-June-2012 on cap.

Swaroga (2024) - Gdańsk, POLAND - DEC 30, 2012
33cl bottle. Quite filtered, golden and orange with small white head. Nose : fruity esters and grainy sweet malts. Sip : creamy body and texture. Small carbonation. The beer is sweet and malty with notes of grains and toffee. It’s well balanced and easy to drink. The end is lightly hopped, flower like and a bit sour in the aftertaste. It’s OK.

fiulijn (18577) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 29, 2003
Hazy golden color; creamy head. Nice malty aroma; mature. Quite smooth, malty; dryer at the end, well balanced by the bitterness, but a light metallic note.
