oh6gdx (25327) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 28, 2009
Bottled (thanks T.M.). Amber colour, big slightly off-white head. Aroma is quite much yeast along with malts, some wooden notes. All in a very nice balance. Flavour is sweet malts, some quite big yeasty notes as well as some grassy notes. Quite Kölsch/Altbierlike notes. Very pleasant. Estonishing.

larsga (7293) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 6, 2009
Small offwhite head. Deep hazy amber body with light carbonation. Faint malty aroma. Dry-sweetish mealy taste of nothing much. Mid-bodied. Chalky mouthfeel. Dry vinuous faintly malty aftertaste with wooden notes. Incredibly bland and neutral. Thought this would be the most flavourful of the lot, but it’s the other way around. (0.5l draft at brewpub.)

1 000 ml bottle. From Beer House, Tallinn. Estonia. Dark copper colour with medium white head. Sweet yeasty and caramel aroma. Sweet, slightly buttery flavour. I don’t know if one week in a bottle had an effect on the beer...

MiP (15272) - Sųnderborg, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2008
Draught at the brewpub. Slightly buttery aroma. Clear amber colour. Small stable white head. Fortunately, I do not get any butter in the flavour, but it is a little citric. It is rather malty and slightly dusty with some spicy flavour hops. Slightly swelling mouthfeel. Probably has a beginning infection.

Nekronos (4101) - Xalapa, MEXICO - AUG 20, 2008
Cool dark one. I thought it was a scwartz one. Good head with big bubbes in it.
