ryanscourt (1153) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 29, 2015
Rich nutty aroma. Good malty body. Only big proplem I have is the the sour offputting finish which could be just from this bottle. will try again.

Foxbush (1618) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - NOV 25, 2015
11.2 oz bottle from The Caboose in Ashland, VA The ale poured a clear reddish amber color with an off-white head and lacing. A good looking ale. Not much on the nose maybe some sweet bready aroma from the malt. I do not detect much in the bitterness area. This ale has a medium body ale with soft carbonation. There was a sweetish-malty finish with nuttiness at the end.

Very small aroma. In my opinion, it should be stronger. Some nuts, maybe some fruits like grapefruit. Red, clear, minimal Bitter - medium Quite fizzy and abrupt. I like it, but it is not that much interesting to love it.

DerGantzel (215) - Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 30, 2015
A fine aroma of malt, fruit/floral and especially nuts. Light red color, clear liquid. Medium sweetness and light bitterness. Typical carbonation for the style, creamy texture. To much nut aroma and taste in my opinion.
