sayravai (4673) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 27, 2008
(Draught@In De Wildeman) Clear amber with a small, lasting and lacy head. Very mild aroma with some caramel and vegetably hints. Sweetish and grainy, caramely flavor with some alcoholic feel, and low bitterness. Medium body with low carbonation. Slightly plasticky, very boring, and a bit alcoholic brew.

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - MAR 10, 2008
330 cl. bottle on 3/10/08. Lots of floaties in an otherwise clear amber pour. Very spare, vanishing, bubbly head without any appreciable lace. Sweet caramel, brown sugar,yeast, and light fruit aromas. Medium body, very light carbonation to the point of almost being still, some stickiness. Malty sweetness dominates the flavor and extends well into the finish, when some soft spicy bitterness makes a long awaited appearance.

Beer4000 (4617) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 2, 2008
330 ml bottle. Hazy amber body with rather small off-white head. Aroma is caramel malt, fruity and a hint of this typical De Konic spiciness. Flavor is malty, a bit sweet, fruity and surprisingly light, almost no alcohol.

Not a big fan of yeast filled beers. Pours light copper. Nothing special. Bottle dated 2004..don’ t know if a brewed on date or drink by date. I hate that I bought a four pack of this stuff. Yeasty, slightly spicy flavor.
