sayravai (4674) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 12, 2009
(Bottled) Hazy golden with a large, foamy head. Quite acidic, pale-malty aroma with honey and fruit hints. Vegetably-malty flavor with some apple fruitiness and hints of caramel, metal and alcohol. Yeast is in big flakes, so it doesn’t really make the flavor smoother, until you pour in the very last drops. Medium body with clearly present alcohol and reasonably soft carbonation. A simple and quite alcoholic triple.

thewolf (11187) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAR 11, 2009
Tap @ ZBF 2009.
Pours lightly hazy golden with a big, beautiful, creamy, white head. Aroma is lightly tart, some apples, yeast and malts. Highish carbonation, okay mouthfeel; slightly oily. Flavour though, has far too much alcohol. There is a little malts and green apple, but it almost burns my throat. Not good.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2009 Cask at The New Oxford in Salford. Cloudy yellowy gold with a decent fluffy white head. Sweet and fresh tasting. Notes once again for me are terrible as I was very drunk. Enjoyed it though, very nice. Re=rate - not as nice on second (more sober tasting). Ok but lowered the numbers.

Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and bitter with a long duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft, finish feel is light alcoholic. Very nice one of the very nice Achilles beers ;o)) (280708)
