Stuu666 (3538) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 20, 2014
Bottle at home. Sweet burnt toffee on nose, taste is dry malty toffee, light bitterness, excellent low abv beer. This was definitely one that improved with a few months aging.

Geiserich (3465) - Linz, AUSTRIA - JAN 6, 2014
Bottle: Brown color, off-white head. Light malty aroma with light sweetness but mainly hop aromatic aroma with herbs, flowers and citrus. Flavor is also light malty with light candy notes, hints of roasted malt and again hops with notes of grapefruit, tropical fruits, grapes, citrus. Very tasty and lovely for this low alcohol content.

laiti (5955) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 8, 2013
50 cl bottle @ Töysä. BBE 07/2013, rated on 06.07.2013
Aroma has hops, some nuts, malt, and resin. Flavour is ’greasy’ and a bit watery with malty notes, nuts and hints of resin. Some smoky and ashy notes at the end of the glass. Malty, watery and somewat hoppy – odd but not bad.

Beersiveknown (3236) - NORTHERN IRELAND - JUL 7, 2013
Bottle at home from ales by mail
pours sark chestnut brown with slight foamy beige head. Strong tangerine on nose with digestive biscuits in behind. Fairly full bodied for a beer so low in alcohol, juicy pithy hops backed up by moreish malting. branflakeswith a glass of breakfast juice! Good job Col!

olio (6501) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 30, 2013
50 cl bottle. BBE 07/2013.
Pours clear dark ruby red color with a medium sized frothy head. Aroma is quite nice and floral, exotic fruits, mostly mango, the slight nutty malts don’t quite fit here though. Flavor of grape fruits, some grass, mild goose berries and some hops. Slick palate, somewhat juicy berry finish. A tad too watery but very easy to drink and otherwise decent brew.
