Kobracai (147) - FINLAND - JUL 8, 2016
Nice sweet aroma, a bit Lipton tea with lemon and honey. Warm and caramally. A bit fudge and coffee. Full bodied. Not much fizz. Works chilled but a bit warmer as well, as I noticed since I left the beer on the table for a while.

ThreeCats (829) - ISRAEL - JUN 23, 2016
Bottle. Clear deep copper color with a nice but short head. Aroma of caramel and bubblegum, with herbal earthy notes. Taste toasty, with earthy notes and a bit of caramel sweetness. Not bad, though you should not drink it too cold

Fules (833) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUN 3, 2016
Fűszeres, erős gyümölcsös, citromos illat. Íze intenzíven fűszeres, komlós. Határozott gyümölcsösség, gyenge keserűsség érződik. Egy idő után előjön egy nagyon gyenge karamelles hatás. Gyenge keserű, és gyümölcsös utóíz, de sokáig megmarad. Közepesen telt.

ManVsBeer (8777) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2016
Bottle. Copper-brown with next to no head. Not enthused about the clear glass bottle as despite being kept in a dark cellar it still had a mikd skunky aroma and taste. There is a good lightly sweetened maltiness to be found in here too and possibly a hint of chocolate.

The_Osprey (6630) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2016
500ml clear bottle as ’Belhaven Robert Burns’, 4.2% BB Nov 2016. Dark orange brown, clear, lightly sparkling, small tan ring on top. Aroma is sugary, cola, bready sugars. Body is medium to light, tingly carbonation, not foamy. Taste is sugary, thin cola, treacle, soft bitterness. Plain and sweet. OK. Drinkable but not really my sort of thing.

DraftDodger (1120) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 28, 2015
Copenhagen 28/10 2015. 50 cl bottle from Meny. Clear glass bottle. Label with drawing of serious fella with huge sideburns whom I assume is the thirsty Robert Burns. Pours clear copper brown with white head. Settles as thin layer of foam. Aroma is of toffee, caramel and roasted malts. Notes of burned toast. Aroma is a little skunky as well. Soft carbonation and watery palate. Taste follows the nose and is of sweet toffee and caramel supplemented by something burnt - without being unpleasant. Nice English beer. Not much bitterness around but will probably fit in with the muffins and the afternoon Tea.

Desverger (8726) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 22, 2015
Bottle from Meny (Amager), Copenhagen - Amber pour with white head. Sweet malty aroma and taste, with some caramel, treacle, nuts, some twiggy herbal hoppy notes, not bad. ---Sent via Beer Buddy for iPhone
