omhper (19192) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 3, 2007
Draught at Soldaten Svejk, Stockholm. (Might have another name as it was only sold as a semi-dark 12° beer from Pivovar Rakovnik.) Clear mahogany colour, firm head. Evident cardamom aroma. Fairly sweet with hard , roasty malt character. Grainy with some butterscotch and lots of cardamom and a touch of cellar old Zhigulevskoye style. Brown sugar dominate the finish. Rather peculiar and unconvincing.

Clear red brown beer. Crisp semi dry palate. Light malt with just enough depth of flavour. Roastiness and bitterness are absent. Small amount of hop fruit. A brief banana note and some minerally zing to finish off. Nice beer.

Dark amber color. No aroma. The light caramel flavor is dry and a bit grassy. Boring.

Dedollewaitor (13677) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 24, 2009
50cl bottle @ VinensVerden, Odense. Label says 4,8%. Pours dark brown with a small creamy white head and lacings. Roast, caramel, bread, grain. Some sweetness but overall well balanced. Extremely smooth and lots of flavor for a beer with such low alcohol content. Very nice!
