Extremely drinkable indeed. Nice full mouth-feel with pleasant malty roast aroma and taste. A wee gem, and excellent for a session

jredmond (6308) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JUL 17, 2015
Pours a clear Amber golden body with no head and just a touch of white foamy lacing. Aroma is pure skunk. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with notes of toffee and sweet caramel malts. Light tinny metallic flavor. Not super offensive, but in no way good.

kerenmk (3264) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAY 20, 2015
Can sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel Florentin. Thanks Stas & Max. Clear gold, white head. Corny, a little sugary and papery aroma, tastes sweet, like red apple. light body, soft fizz, sweetish apple finish. OK for what it is.

tbonde (181) - DENMARK - MAY 19, 2015
Pint@Amager Ølhus@approx 12 degrees C. Pours beautifully creamy, cloudy gathering head Guinness style foaming up with tiny bubbles from the bottom of the glass. Golden amber with creamy white head. Aroma of sweet malt, caramel and faint hops. Taste and aftertaste backs this up being also slightly sweet, fruity and nutty. Nice, smooth bitter though a bit thin on the palate.

rosenbergh (8575) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 31, 2015
500 ml bottle. BB 21/Dec/14. (Sokos) Tampere, Finland.
Clear reddish mahogany colour with a small off-white fluffy head. Nuts, dryness, sweetish malt, skunky hops and mild bitterness in the aroma. The flavour is floral hops, dryish nutty notes, metal and sweetish caramel malt. Quite blah...

Slightly cloudy. A bit of sediment. Dark amber brown colour. Hoppy aroma and a sharp kicking taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

damemphis (7) - FINLAND - MAY 31, 2014 does not count
Bad, way too plain, no foam to mention and with Finnish prices (7,90 eur) really not worth the money.
