caesar (5043) - 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.

sayravai (4669) - 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.

RichardGretton (4237) - 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.

jmgreenuk (4229) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 17, 2012
Bottle shared with Deanso. Poured a clear copper colour with a thick white head and broken lace. The aroma is strong and malty. The flavour is pretty much the same. The palate is weak and the aftertaste watery. This beer lacks body and flavour.

jaghana (3808) - Strasbourg (France), FRANCE - JAN 24, 2011
Bottle 75cl. A clear copper beer with small head. Smell is fruity. Aroma is sweet with fruit and spice aroma on agrumes, bitter with a dry finish. Not really exceptional but drinkable.

sunevdj (3152) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - JAN 6, 2007
On tap. Pours a clear golden with a white head and some lacings. Smells a bit of honey. Sweet and malty with strong honey flavors. Slightly lagerish. Light bodied and slightly waterish. The finish isa boring lagerfinish: bitter with a hint of sourness and some gunpowder hops.

bluevegie (3052) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 20, 2006
Clear light golden body with an average white head. Fruity aroma with a bit of spices mixed in. Very pleasant sweet taste, not full on in flavour but I enjoyed this better than the Brune.

Habanero (2543) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - DEC 26, 2011
Bottled. Pours deep golden with a nice off-white head. Nose of caramel, fruit and spicy notes. Sweet flavor of caramel, spices,fruit and brown sugar. Medium bodied, watery to oily texture and average carbonation. Ends up more dryand with a little bitterness.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 31, 2009
650ml bottle from the Christmas market in Lille, 13th Dec 09. Golden blonde, perfectly clear, lively, with a big white persistent head. Dusty hops and alcohol on the nose. Balanced taste with a nice orange element. Could do with more complexity and weight but overall a good beer and washed down the turkey dinner nicely.
