Sigmund (5325) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 4, 2011
500 ml bottle, from SuperBest Hjørring. ABV is 5.6%. Deep golden colour, moderate white head. Moderate but nice aroma of fruity hops, hints of orange marmalade, also notes of caramel and toffee. The flavour is medium sweet, notes of caramel and bitter orange marmalade again, plenty of grapefruity and piney hops, ending in a solid bitterness which is surprisingly sharp and distinct for a Welsh ale.

EithCubes (5089) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 18, 2012
Bottle by 01.13. Nose with a strong caramel base and piny hops, some citrus/grapefruit. Hazy yellow-orange with a rocky off-white head. Taste is nice and bitter, brings it, spicy/floral notes with a little Christmas cookie and caramel, dries but there’s seemingly more booze here than the 5.6% listed on the label. Very (too-) crisp medium body an the grapefruit really makes itself known with some volume. Just heavy.
