inbirraveritas (1233) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 11, 2010
Csapolva a "3. Cseh Sörfesztivál"-on. Szép borostyán szín, habja világosbarna, krémes, mely végig vékonyan megmarad. Illata karamellás, gyümölcsös. Íze az előzőeknek megfelelő, nagyon kellemes. Aromája elsősorban karamell malátás, enyhe füves komlóval kiegészítve. A befejezés fűszeres és száraz. Könnyen iható, jó kis ser volt ez.

Brix (633) - DENMARK - APR 8, 2010
Tasted ?? (forgotten back-log). Pours clear, dark, red with beige head. Aroma is sweet, malty and a little nutty. Flavours of caramel, dark candis. A bit like an irish coffee. Actually fairly good. I was surprised - thought it would be yet another drink and forget.

OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 13, 2010
0.5 L bottle from Pivovarsky Klub, Praha. Two fingers of dense, yellow shaded, blond head. Body is sparkling, bright ruby brown. Moderate aroma of dryish, lightly toasted malts. Some dusty and metallic hops. Taste is medium sweet, light malty, with a slight astringent accent, apperantly from the herbs added. A faint sourness and some noticable bittering hops underneath. Light to medium body strenght. Lively mouthfeel. Dryish, herbal, mild hop bitter ending.

clear amber, large smooth offwhite head. nice malty slight bready note, dry, caramel. flavor is bitter caramel, some malty sweetness. makes me think of the malty flavor from barley wine but of course much weaker. palate is a bit too fizzy. a very tasty beer.

Embrouille (2827) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 26, 2009
Bottled 50cl. Courtesy of Quack-Duck. It pours a clear amber beer. Malty nose with hints of raisins. Quite a lot of vinegar presence in the taste- very unusual. Strange. Cloying after a few sips. Notes of raisins showing up again. Unpleasant acidic metallic finish. Not my kind of beer. Thanks Quack-Duck!

armando629 (2408) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 21, 2009
Deep amber-reddish colored body with a nice off white-tan head. Aroma of toasted malt and caramel, some floral notes of hop. Smooth mouthfeel with a nice vienna character like tosted caramel, toffee, some sweet grains. Fine moderated and balanced hop, some fruity tastes in the finish. Correct one, i could sip it for hours with buddies...
