Shaney (2428) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - JUN 12, 2013
Helles Bernstein, viel weiße Crema aus der Nitro-Dose. Honig und Malz im Aroma und im sehr sanften, cremigen Geschmack. Alles schwach ausgeprägt, aber wahrlich ein Gaumenschmeichler!

TeamTrappist (830) - jericho, New York, USA - MAY 27, 2013
Poured a light copper amber with a 2" foamy head. Nose is bitter and malty. Honestly, it tastes almost exactly like a Guiness. Creamy and bitter with light roasted malts. Finish is bitter

Hanuta06 (319) - Washington, USA - APR 3, 2013
Serving: from (nitro) tap at Doyle’s Public House. Aroma: moderately sweet and malty. Appearance: average-sized, creamy, off-white, initial head with fair lacing and mostly diminishing longevity. Hazy, flat, medium-yellow body. Taste: lightly solvent-like initial flavor and lightly acetic, cardboard-like finish with short duration. Palate: light body, creamy texture and no carbonation. Overall: everything was very good but the strange taste.

NikkTwist (1538) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 13, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 15, 2013 Nitro draft at Fado. Fluffy orange amber pour. Huge white head that draws down to a tight bright white marshmallow foam over a clear orange amber. Mild roasted pecans. Tangerines. Hazelnuts. Orange seeds. Light caramel. Creamy mouth feel. Dry fragrant light hoppy brew with light amber fruits. Clean finish. Nothing bad but nothing special.

ruigo (1027) - PORTUGAL - FEB 10, 2013
I really was expecting more from this beer. As I saw its colour and head it resembled me of other nice English beers, but when I tasted it I really got disappointed. Misses in flavour.

Draught. Pours clear copper in color with long-lasting whitish head. Sweet malty and some berries in aroma. Flavor quite similar. Easy to drink, but thats about it. Sweet malty and berries in finish.
