2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(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.

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
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.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
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
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.
