omhper (19188) - 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.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 5, 2008
Have not had a light dark beer since Blatz Dark (America’s great light dark beer). True amber color with a thin lid of light beige bubbles. Toasted bread and just a hint of herbal hops with caraway and rosemary. Light brown sugar start with a earthy malt background. Fairly watery at times. Some light spice in the finish and linger. Also a bit of licorice and caramel floating about. Interesting, but not that entertaining.

Rune (7760) - Tromsř, NORWAY - JUN 3, 2009
Brilliant clarity to an amber body. Missing head. Dry grainy smell with underlying dark fruits. Caramel malty flavour with a bit of prunes. Bitter fruits in the aftermath. Clean tasting and quite nice towards the end of a long day at the beer festival in Copenhagen (16.05.2009).

mattphilips (802) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 2, 2011
Sötétebb árnyalatú, opálos vörösesbarna színe van, komoly habot fejleszt, mely kissé sárgásan piszkosfehér színű, tömör és krémes állagú egyszerre, valamint egészen kitartó. Illata elég halovány, maláta, karamell és némi gyógynövényes aroma. Íze kellemesen keserédes, maláta és karamell kezdetben, majd egy olyasmi kissé csípős íz, mintha valami fűszeres sült gesztenye lenne, halvány komlós keserűség, majd szintén ez az enyhén csípős, bizsergető utóíz. Egészen jó lenne, ha nem lenne ennyire vizes, jóval több íz kéne bele, így könnyed ivósörnek elmegy.
