This isnít a bad ale and maybe Iím being to harsh, but after drinking the more complex 80 schilling I found this to be very boring. Iím sure had I done it the other way around, I wouldnít be so tough. Really should try the 80 schilling instead though.

BlackHaddock (4435) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2013
Clear 500ml bottle: poured into a UK pint sleeve on 27th Nov 13. Looked good: nice mahogany reddy brown body with a thin but full tanned covering. Clean and clear with carbonation bubbles rising throughout the tasting. Sweet malts ruled the nose and taste: treacle, toffee and caramel coming through in that order. The body isnít thin, but it hasnít got the depth to carry the sweetness very well, seems a little unbalanced and one dimensional because of that. OK, promises so much in looks and smell, but lacks a hop backbone and oomph.

SperkeleForce (676) - FINLAND - OCT 29, 2013
Bottle 50 cl. Pours amber with decent frothy head. Taste is caramel, hay, nuts, bread. Nice mix with bitter, dry and some sweet. Easy drink, specially now when pretty thirsty.

Beerheart65 (1084) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 20, 2013
Clear dark copper with short off-white head and lacing. Malty aroma has wood, nuts, bit caramel and hay. Hops under this. Light to medium body, semidry and slightly bitter, finish dries bit, low carbonation, soft and thin feel, more fruits than in aroma. Needs more body but flavors are ok.

Imaena (1943) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 7, 2013
Bottle. This is a classic bitter with a good malty flavor and just enough hops to keep it interesting.
