COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A traditional light hop flavour balances the sweet malty caramel taste. The addition of a pinch of roast barley during the brewing process lends a distinctive roast bite which is balanced by a crisp dry medium bitterness.

Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - JUL 26, 2003
Are people rating the same beer. Mine looks like the picture - almost black!?! Large, long lasting head that leaves a nice lace. Aroma; malty, roasted, toffee. Taste; inoffensive, sweet, roasted-bitter, dry. Has a lot to offer considering "low" ABV.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 24, 2003
Clear brown color with a fluffy dark cream colored head. Nutty/earthy/malty aroma with some sourdough undertones. Dry caramel with a murmur of acidic earthy malt. Dry dark malt finish. Nothing I can get thrilled about.

Nuffield (3668) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 24, 2003
Deep dark brown-amber, creamy smooth head. Smooth palate, though not as creamy as expected from the appearance. A mediocre flavor, suggesting tea and dishwater. Mild aroma with only a hint of grape or other fruitiness (cherry?). Really very mediocre. (on tap, Hobgoblin, Oxford)

Indra (2607) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JUL 14, 2003
Faint aroma, some caramel sweetness and toasty malt. Medium red-amber color, persistent white head and lace. Malty, fruity, faintly bittersweet flavor profile, some touches of floral hop bitterness towards the finish. Light bodied, effervescent palate. Quenching.

Hansen (6572) - Assentoft, DENMARK - JUL 8, 2003
Not impressed at all. Well, ok appearance, red and fine head. Not much aroma and the flavor has an uncharming hint of cola.

pauliefrog99 (302) - FLINT, Michigan, USA - JUL 1, 2003
Poured a reddish brown color which left small white lacing on the glass. Malty flavor with notes of caramel and light smoke taste.

LoveCaissa (873) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 20, 2003
Pretty brown colour, perhaps with a reddish glow. Fine sweet aroma of toffee. Nice malty flavour with a somewhat smokey and pleasantly bitter finish. However, a bit waterish mouthfeel.

MaxPower (961) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 20, 2003
Deep reddish- brown in color, small white head that doesn't last long, light sweet roasty nutty-caremel aroma. Some roasted malty nutty flavors, light to medium body, light and smooth mouthfeel, a bit watery leaves a somewhat dirty aftertaste, not all that great.

hotstuff (4069) - Indiana, USA - JUN 13, 2003
This Irish Ale poured a medium tan head of fine-small bubbles. There was some lacing present. The body was amber colored. The aroma was slightly sweet and the taste was fairly smooth.

thedm (4935) - Fort Wayne, USA - JUN 13, 2003
This brew pours a medium head of finely sized off white bubbles that left a good lacing and a transparent brown body. It has a malt hop aroma with slightly bitter fizzy start and a smooth finish. It has flavors of roasted malt and caramel.
