COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

A full-bodied and malty ale with a rounded, smooth fruit palate and a tight, creamy head that laces all the way down the glass. Rich in colour with a smooth, creamy texture and a distinctively strong flavour.

martjoobolut (596) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 14, 2014
0,5L bottle. Pours clear copper with moderate white head. The head stays for some time. Aroma is strong malt and caramel. Flavor: strong malt and some caramel, bitterness is noticeable, but not overwhelming. Overall: nice easy drinking beer. If you like malty beers that are not very bitter, you’ll love this one.

zenkis (551) - Ogre, LATVIA - DEC 31, 2013
Pours pale copper with beige frothy medium top, thick small spotty average lasing. Aroma - kind of dry malt combo with English ale yeast, a bit leather on nose comes too. Tatse is light sweet with min bitter from fermentation, light to medium dry finish, light body, sour touch at the end - bit ruining flavor. Otherwise - nothing special taste.

djoeye (1230) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 19, 2013
50cl bottle, abv 4.6, bough at Eurospar Langnes Tromsø. Nice off-white head on the copper coloured body. Lots of grass and malts and caramel to the nose. Tastes sweet malts, raisins, fruits, grains. Fruity smooth semi-dry mouthfeel. Ends on bread-with-jam, caramel, still sweet malts, a little bitterness underneath. Easy and tasty. Scots were not miserly with the taste here.

allmyvinyl (2941) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 30, 2013
500ml bottle at home. Kind of the same as the Twisted Thistle IPA, only a little darker, more watery, metallic, and disappointing.

Copper color, medium white head. Aroma of malt, caramel and floral hops. Taste is similar, dry sweet with lightly bitter hoppy finish. Light body, average carbonation. Drinkable, but nothing special.
