Nice amber color with a smell of malts. Tastes malty, cereal, delicious and not what I was expecting. The mouthfeel was very creamy and my favorite part about the beer. For some reason I was expecting this beer to be hoppier. I would probably buy sixers of this if it were available.

Bottle from GBBF 09. Russet clear, lasting deep beige head. Some US hop aroma. Bit of boiled cabbage/vegetal on aroma. Ok amber in the mouth, some decent stony malt. Finish has some toffee and some more vegetal notes and some hop. Overall not that good, the vegetal notes put me off

Tasty, malty beer. Really nice toffee notes. Little hop presence other than balancing bitterness, though there is some spicyness in the finish. A well tasty pint indeed.

Bottled@Konttori, Tampere. Amber colour, mediumsized beige creamy head. Some lace. Aroma is caramel malts, grass, toffee and some mild spicyness. Flavour is quite much the same. The spicyness is dominating though. Nice wooden and grassy aftertaste.

Deep amber pour with a thick sticky white head. The aroma is fairly sweet. A touch of earthy/fruity hops and a fairly prominent note of diacetyl. Kind of dirty smelling with a bit of rotting orange peel in there as well. Meh... these guys can do so much better.
