Draught @ the brewpub
Aroma has caramel and some butterscotch. Sticky palate. Flavour has caramel and toffee. Decent, but a bit too sweet and sticky.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2011
Sample at the brewpub. Steady fizzing bronze, tight drum of head. Buttery, well-trodden work-boot filled with biscuits aroma. Caramelised, butter biscuit flavour with light nutty and vegetative tones. Again, maybe as English as German in feel; same digestive sweetness as the helles light...and pretty much all of the Beer House brews.

larsga (7307) - 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.)

Hazed nutty color with a off white head. Decent aroma. Medium body and an average carbonation. Caramel, herbal/grassy and malty flavor.

SaintMatty (6836) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - DEC 2, 2007
1l take away bottle poured from the tap at the Beer House, Tallinn- Copper coloured, fruity aroma with raisins. Fruity taste which is slightly spicy. Raisins and sultanas also in the taste with a hint of banana in the aftertaste.

Marduk (6402) - Reval, ESTONIA - DEC 8, 2012
Draught. Clear copper color. Off-white, creamy head stays for eternity. Bready, malty, thick, mild sweet aroma. Grainy, dusty, hops, malty flavor. Dull and dead. Not that something is wrong, but something is missing. Not enough spark to light my fire.

jookos (5594) - FINLAND - AUG 5, 2014
Tap@brewpub. Darker amber, some haze. Biscuity caramels, malty nose. Light med bodied, doughy yeasty. Some nice roasted caramels, but a bit bland overall. Probably my fav in this taster anyway. The others got some extra point for being served fresh, this one might even deserve the points I’m giving.

Marko (4969) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 17, 2010
Draught at the brewpub. Old gold, slightly coppery body. Slightly off white head. Bready nose, light honey. Soft taste, again bready and honeyish. Yay, not the worst one of them.
