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.

Bottle BB 12/04. Pours amber/mahogany with a thin crust of white bubbles. Smells of sugar, iced tea, earth, citrus. Tastes of resudual sugar, some pepper, hints of spice. Past its prime but still enjoyable.

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.

Bottle in an xmas gift pack. Aroma is yeasty and bready. Slight ripe fruit notes in the nose. Flavour is again, fruity, and yeasty. Pretty run of the mill if you ask me.

Hallelujah! I found a back-up of my broken PDA, with rating I’d thought I’d lost forever. :-) Aroma is bready, not much else. Flavor is light, alcohol presence is notable.

Enniskillen (2045) - Salinas, California, USA - FEB 19, 2007
Best before 2004. Body is brown with a thin tan head. Aroma is tart with apples and white wine, bit of grapefruit, and saltiness to it also. Taste is fairly alcoholic for 8%, has a cider like quality to it with light caramel, yeast, and light hop forefront to it, light raspberry, and old chocolate taste shows up in the end.

Bottled. Hazy golden coloured with a rather large head. A bit dusty with notes of yeast, fruits and hints of spices.
