Voivod (304) - Como, - JUN 10, 2003
Amber colour, nice head, quite lasting. Hoppy aroma. The flavour is smokey, malty, qith an hoppy and spicy finish. Drinkable, but not my favourite Scottish ale.

Nie urzeklo mnie to piwo. Ale troche wodnisty, rozczarowujacy w porownaniu do innych szkockich piw.

rauchbier (3592) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2014
Bottle, from Sainsburys, Grimsby. Golden brown, thin but lasting white head and moderate condition. Slight fruitiness in the nose with a background of sweet caramel, hints of chocolate and coffee initially in the mouth quickly gaining a fruity edge and a little grainy sweetness, gentle hop bitterness and some sweet burnt toffee notes linger in the finish.

Bottle. Pours clear amber with a white, medium head. Aroma is sweet, malty and fruity with a hints of hops. Taste is similar: malt, caramel. Medium body and carbonation. Decent beer.

delorian (47) - budapest, HUNGARY - APR 14, 2014
Szép, meleg borostyán szín. Fűves, karamellás illattal nyít. Majd a malátás, kekszes jegyek mellett hangsúlyozottan egy enyhe fanyarság is előbújik, ami kiegyensúlyozott és hosszan megmarad, azaz nem válik tolakodóvá. Kifejezetten könnyű ivósör, de ehhez képest meglepően összetett ízvilágú, finoman kimunkált sör.

Tayeth (188) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - APR 8, 2014
Geruch ist angenehm süßlich nach Sirup, Karamell und ganz leicht nach Zimt. Geschmack dann zart nach Kaffee mit Toffee und Sahnebonbon. Für meinen Geschmack etwas zu stark karbonisiert.

gueuze (314) - - APR 7, 2014
Kräftiges Hopfenaroma mit Anklang von Karamell. Im Antrunk dann erstaunlich süß, im Abgang nicht so bitter wie es das Aroma erwarten lassen würde. Dezente Röstaromen. Sehr lecker.

Migmar (240) - Espoo, FINLAND - MAR 22, 2014
Amber, medium head. Grassy, bready, slightly roasted, nuts. Light sweetness, medium bitterness, semi-full palate. Not bad at all.

From a bottle at home. Slightly bitter, slightly fruity but a bit strange. Not too tasty.

Lore (975) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 1, 2014
dark golden to amber colour, moderate off-white head; aroma of bread, some toffee, minimal fruityness and grassy hops; well ballanced bittersweet taste, though not too complex.

hohops (211) - Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2014
Poured into a pint glass. Amber/orangey, with a white, foamy, cushiony head. Aromas- lots of hops, floral notes, meadowy, bit of yeast, bread. Nice smelling. Taste- quite full flavoured, big bitter hop presence, raisin, little bit of pine, toffee. Easy drinking and very tasty.
