Beerheart65 (1111) - 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 (1989) - 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.

Vells (885) - Riga, LATVIA - MAR 20, 2013
Clear amber with medium off white head. Lacing. Aroma.. quite caramel malty, hoppy, bit fruity Bittersweet. Decent beer. Nice price/perfomance. Really surprised.

Lore (1362) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 17, 2013
reddish-brown colour, minimal and quickly disappearing off-white head; not too intensive aroma of fruits, taste of brown sugar and lost of fruits with some minimal hoppy bitterness; ok bitter, but rather fruitty than bitter in taste.

mighty_meadow (300) - Kilwinning, SCOTLAND - JAN 31, 2013
I wasn’t expecting too much from this but Belhaven have delivered once again. Mahogany coloured with a light tan head. Sweet and malty. Easy on the palate. Brown sugar to the fore, this would probably go well with a dark coloured dessert, gingerbread cake perhaps. Definitely one I’ll have again

laiti (6567) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 26, 2013
50 cl bottle @ home. Rated on 21.02.2010
Aroma is somewhat sweet with toffee, caramel, hay and English hops. Flavour is sweet with toffee, some ripe fruits, nuts, sugary notes and caramel. Too thin and light, 4,2% just isn’t enough.
