Orange coloured beer, ok head. Smell of fruits with a herbal boost to it. The taste is sweet bitterness, slight dry earthy, fruity. Nothing to get excited.

Hazy, dark yellowish colour. Smells sweet, fruity, yeasty and abricots. Tastes accordingly. Mouthfeel is okay, but it’s slightly too heavy on the carbo.

Koelschtrinker (9995) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 19, 2011
Hefig-malziger Antrunk, auch die Fruchtigkeit ist ein wichtiger Bestandteil. Die Malzigkeit wird im Mittelteil etwas stärker, das Bier bleibt aber einigermaßen spritzig. Ein leicht saurer Ton meldet sich und ist auch im Nachgeschmack noch zu erkennen, er nimmt aber nur eine geringe Rolle ein. Würzig-malziger Nachgeschmack. Test vom 6.9.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 8,11,10,9,6,10 - 9,60

Orange-brown cloudy beer. Very thin head. Just a little carbonation. Smooth and slightly frothy. Light malt with a citrus tone and a whisper of marmite! Slightly odd combo but goes down okay.

KyotoLefty (5894) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 18, 2010
Fruity, viny aroma, oxidized, with raisins, light spice, some caramel. medium amber color going towards orange, with a fine, thick, low head. Sweet, fruity flavor, lots of raisins and honey, a little caramel and citrus. There is a distinctly tart aspect. Not excessively bitter, rather dry at the end, though. Smooth, somewhat low carbonation. Seems slightly oxidized. Well-balanced but not all that interesting. Seems like it would be better if fresher.
