MoritzF (9151) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - MAY 24, 2008
(bottle) Clear, copper coloured effervescent hue with a big, light-beige foamy head. Slightly dusty, moderately sweet toast-malty nose with toffee, berry-fruity and citrousy hops. Mildly sweet flavour, light to medium bodied with a soft carbonation. Toast-malty, slightly fruity taste with toffee and notes of liquorice; quite sweet and faint bitter finish. A tad too mild and sweet for my liking (24.05.08).

Stefano (1942) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAY 22, 2008
Dark brown colour with a nice white head. Aroma is sweet malty with caramel, and some hops. Sweet flavour with notes of malt, caramel and hints of smoke. Little too sweet but okay.

KimJohansen (10409) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - MAR 30, 2008
Deep amber with large off white head. Sweet fruity aroma with caramel and toasted malt. Sweet flavor that holds caramel, berries and grainy notes. Ends sweet.

50 cL bottle. Pours almost clear orange with a dense white head. Light spiced hops aroma. Flavour is mild breadish, malty and with a light spice note. Goes into a sweet finish and a mild bitterness in the far finish.

Kicsit többet vártam ettől a bittertől,nekem kicsit édeskés volt de még mindig jobb mint az olcsó lagerek.Ha az ára hasonló lenne hozzájuk,szerintem már költözhetnének is a megszokott márkák.

Lucremon (13) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - FEB 9, 2008
500ml bottle. Modest, slightly beige head with tenacious lacing and a nice warm, copper-red colour. Subtle aroma of caramel and dried fruit (red currant and raisin?). Light-medium bodied with sweet notes again and a slightly malty, balanced finish. Not outstanding by any means but I think this is worthy of a higher average score.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2007
A Mes rate: Bottle from Peckhams and consumed on the train on the 6 hour journey back to London. Heavy mid brown with a pretty solid and creamy off white head. Very strong but not overly pleasant nose with heavy tobacco in a dusty old pub way with some very sweet malt and slight medicinal notes. Flavour is similar, nasty sweet malt, orange, raisins and a bit of chocolate. Rather nasty tobacco finish. Not great.
