sayravai (4674) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 27, 2004
(Bottled) Golden lager color with a very small head. Very mild aroma with a hint of sweet fruitiness and alcohol. Sweet, honeyish flavor with a silghtly alcoholic feel and almost no hops. Medium-bodied, sugary and alcoholic palate. A paler, lighter and less interesting version of the brune. Reminds me of the Estonian strong lagers.

TBone (12815) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 7, 2004
Bottled (BB 06/2006)
Lager color with small white head. Weak, fruity trefoil aroma. Sweet, a bit smokey, malty taste. Medium-bodied. Sweetish hoppy aftertaste.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
caesar (5202) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - DEC 24, 2003
Bottled, 0.7 liter, BB '97 (> 8 years old). Hazy orange coloured, small but lasting head. Aroma is obviously aged, cork wood, port, a bit cinnamon, some hops. More watery taste, some sweetness.

3.6
   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20
jerohen (2010) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - DEC 23, 2003
Bottled, 0.7 liter, BB '97 (> 8 years old). Hazy orange coloured, small but lasting head. Sweet and hoppy aroma, some cork. Obvious "age-sensation", notes of port. Watery palate. I've never had a fresh bottle, but i guess aging really benefits this one.

   AROMA 4/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 6/20
Bov (9602) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - DEC 11, 2003
clear golden-blond colour, the initial head quickly reduces leaving just few foam, perfumy, alcohol and orange aroma, sparkling, full-bodied with a chewy-like mouthfeel, initial sweetness, slightly oily with a dry, warming alcohol finish - unbalanced; more a malt liquor than a bière de garde and in any cases not good

2.4
   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 8/20
RichardGretton (4260) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2002
Frothy lagerish head initially, which soon fades from this amber beer. Very malty and lightly bitter flavour and aroma that is a bit too sickly. Not a very good biere to garde in my opinion.
