MarkoNm (530) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - MAY 9, 2014
A bit late for Christmas beer, but never mind. Pours a dark amber color topped with a decent slightly off color head. The aroma is quite strong - hoppy, slightly soury and yeasty. The taste is mild and creamy. There’s some malts and roasty feel, as well as some nice easy bitterness. A very decent one.

Bernsteinfarbenes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch leicht röstmalzig, Karamell, fruchtig. Geschmack röstmalzig süß, fruchtig, Karamell.

Erzengel (2604) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - FEB 1, 2014
33cl longneck bottle, 01/03/14 - 16/10/13
The beer starts malty and slightly sourish. Highly drinkable. The mainpart is smooth, malty, fresh, crisp. The aftertaste is nicely malty, fresh, highly drinkable, slightly sourish.
I like it! --> 12/12/11/11

ThirstyBird (1562) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - JAN 12, 2014
Thanks to erzengel for this bottle! Pours a cola color with a tan head that fizzes away to complete nothing. The smell is dark fruit, caramel. The taste is as it smells ending dry. Light/medium with mild carbonation.

ruigo (1091) - PORTUGAL - NOV 12, 2013
Shared a 33cl bottle from Delhaize (Luxembourg). Pours a light brown reddish colour with a off-white head/lacing. Aroma is lightly caramel malt and slightly fruity. Medium carbonation and light body. Flavour is more sweet than bitter, but mostly neutral and very present. Overall a drinkable beer but not one that I would serve on a Christmas party.

Cunningham (4489) - Halden, NORWAY - JUL 1, 2013

Appearance: Clear deep brown color with a tan head that leaves a fine lacing.
Aroma: Slightly sweet caramel malty and a bit fruity.
Palate: Medium body. Moderate sweet and a mild bitterness. Average carbonation.
Taste: Balanced mild caramel malty, some roasted notes and a bit fruity.
Overall impression: Not very fancy, but decent and ok.
Personal stats: Bottle from a trade with Grima.

Ruprecht_007 (605) - Cesky Tesin, CZECH REPUBLIC - JAN 5, 2013
Bottle, trade with Grima, huge thanx! Barva: černohnědá s nádechem rubínové. Pěna: řídká nedržící. Vůně: jemná kávová s nádechemn grepu. Chuť: příjemná sladová s kávovou stopou a dozvukem po tropickém ovoci (ananas a grep). Hořkost přiměřená pivnímu stylu. Slušné pivo.

McWorta (587) - LUXEMBOURG - SEP 6, 2012
Brownish in colour, some white head. Traces of malt. Light fizzy, slick. Light-medium body and a bit sweet. Rightly temperated it is rather quaffable, other than that - Ok.

Ungstrup (29277) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 2, 2012
Bottled. A brown beer with a tan head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt and roasted bread. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, and bread, leading to a dry and lightly bitter finish. The body is light.
