Nuts crack those nuts. Nuts in shape of malts. Kind of uninspiring. Needs more fruits.

A clear copper pour with a white head. Very weak malt aroma with a hint of caramel, more malt to the taste.

panzerwolf (137) - FINLAND - JAN 21, 2015
Copper colour. Taste of hay with earthen tones, with a slightly bitter bite towards the middle and the end. Toffee taste that’s accompanied by a slightly metallic tinge. Still ok for a bitter.

Coppery color with a quickly diminishing white head. Aroma has notes of light earthy and slightly caramel. Flavor is slightly cardboard with hints of caramel. Light bittery final.

Hieno väri hienoa pulloa sävyttämässä. Ei niin häävi ollut sitten kuitenkaan. Samanlainen kuin uusivuosi. Lätty.

No aroma, slight head, no lacing. Nice maltiness to accompany the water. Reminds me of bright saloon bars and chrome. Not really a fan of the style and this didn’t change my opinion.

MrJamesMcEwan (92) - SCOTLAND - NOV 3, 2014
Bottle. Pours amber brown, with a white head that disappates quickly. Medium bodied, high carbonation, fine bubbles. Aroma is caramel, toast, roasted malt and shortbread biscuit. Taste is sweet, malty, kiwi and slight apple and bread. Palate is slightly dry, thick and sweet. Finish is sweet, but metallic. A very good balance of malt and hops. Very nice taste, only spoiled by the high carbonation and metallic finish.

StueyD (1333) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2014
A dark orange brown coloured beer with a frothy white head. A rubbery aroma on opening the bottle, but this soon dissipates to allow a nutty and caramel malt aroma with a hint of spice in the background. Medium-dry mouthfeel. The taste starts off with a mouth filling malt flavour. Nutty and caramel, biscuity and toffee. There is a mild hoppy bitterness that adds a refreshing element to the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

500 ml bottle. Pours copper coloured with medium head. Smooth and pleasant. Not a bad beer. Could drink this again.
