2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
330ml bottle (Drink Shop, Tallinn)
Mashy aroma, a touch of banana. Deep orange, tight persistent head. Nasty papery taste. In the finish too. Not refreshing - give me a nordic pale lager rather than this.

Bottle (750ml): Clear, amber coloured, small creamy off-white head, fruity and (a bit toasted) malty-nutty nose; mild sweet-bitter flavour, medium bodied, soft MF; soft malty-fruity finish with a touch of bisquits. Pleasant drink........

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. A chestnut coloured beer with a reasonabl white head. The aroma is sweet and malty with Christmas cake and alcohol. The taste is also sweet and malty, brown berry fruits such as raisins come through. However there is a spoiling sickly vomit feel in the finish which is a shame.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(75cl bottle) Slightly hazy, amber colour with medium-sized off-white foamy head. Sweet, slightly toasted dark malty aroma with caramel and a distinctive touch of alcohol, backed by a light herbal hoppy note. Sweet and a bit sugary flavour, quite light bodied mouthfeel; soft on carbon. Dark malty, slightly toasted taste with caramel and a touch of liquorice; fairly slim, toast-malty, sweet and faint bitter finish (19.07.07).

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Ruby red in colour. This beer has the "chewyness" of an IPA. Caramel and toffee combine well with the good mouthfeel. A good French beer!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Good, creamy, cream-coloured head, irregular over slightly hazy dark orange-foxy beer; some lace. Very fruity-perfumay first whiff, as from raspberries. Keeps fruity with caramel or toffee, and a bit of orange rind. Dry, leafy flavour with caramel filling, nutty and toasted. Ends rather pastry-sweet. Liquorice warming up. Very fizzy, titillating MF, high saturation. Medium bodied, quite slick, even oily. Nothing bad to tell, except... so terribly predictable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
75cl bottle. Amber colour, large head. Pleasant aroma of malt, although the beer is more hoppy than malty. Lovelly flowery hops. Spicy, hints of caramel.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber-orange body with a decent, off-white head in my 100ml glass at EBF 08. Sweet, dried fruits to the nose. Taste of stewed fruits on a sweet malty background. Soft texture and quite mouth filling carbonation (Copenhagen, 14.09.2008).

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On draught (pression) at Falstaff in Paris. Clear orange color with light bubbles and a medium thin off-white head. Very thin lacing. The aroma is mildly malty and hoppy. Rather thin body with an blandly sour malt flavor coupled with sweet caramel and yeast. The finish comes up a little short, making for a misfire as far as this beer is concerned.
