hauxe (336) - Butzbach, GERMANY - JUL 1, 2016
Pours hazy light orange from the bottle. The crown soon dissipates to fine lacing. The aroma is subdued and goes in the direction of ginger tonic. Taste is rich malt, honey, caramel, and slides into a warming, lightly bitter finish. Chewy and creamy with overall relatively low carbonation. Overall pleasant and consistent. Would pair well with most meaty dishes.

rondphoto (3874) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JUN 16, 2016
bottle @ Naiv / Frankfurt Germany --- Aroma of fruit and hops. Cloudy light amber, white head that drops to a thin cover, broken sheets of lace. Taste is caramel malt with yeast that quickly passes medium carbonation, then a bit of spice and maybe some hops on the way to a lingering semisweet malt finish. Good, not great

AntonyWilson (98) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - JUN 16, 2016
500ml bottle: Pours a clear golden with reasonable white head that persists. Aroma of toffee, caramel and slight toast. Tastes of caramel toffee with a bready note. Bitterness low with a medium carbonation. Medium to full bodied that finishes sweet. Overall a big beer that I could only have 1 or 2 of.
