Bamsen78 (5057) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 20, 2014
Bottle to lament (but respect) the fact that Scotland has voted no to independence. Pours clear copper brown with airy off-white head. Clear aroma of malt, caramel, and hops, with touches of yeast. Bitter flavour of hops, with sweet notes of malt, caramel and fruit. Estery and bitter afteraste. Easily drinkable and not as bitter as a bitter Bitter. Okay but nothing extraordinary.

Cristobal37 (811) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 3, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2016 Light hazel brown. bubbily caramel roasted malts flavor. A nice beer to watch lots of soccer with. Lightly sweet and really enjoyable. Good, but overall I preferred the 80 schilling instead.

BlackHaddock (6375) - 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 isn’t thin, but it hasn’t 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 (791) - 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.
