nudiebear (97) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 17, 2014
Bottle. Poured a clear rust brown with no head. Sniffing it rewarded me with Syrup and zesty notes. And white bread. Tasted sweet and reminiscent of caramel. OK

yngwie (13555) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 15, 2014
Bottle. A lightly unclear dark golden beer topped by a small, white head. The aroma is lightly oxidzed, with caramel, some dried fruits and peaches. It’s medium to full-bodied with a soft carbonation. Caramel, oxidation, dried fruits and some herbal bitterness. Some generic fruityness too, lasting for a while. Pretty nice this one, but nothing extraordinary going on. 140815

TBone (12547) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 18, 2014
Bottle 500ml (AbM, BB 03/2014)
Clear copper-amber color, small beige head. Aroma is grassy with harsh old, unfresh aroma. Light-bodied. Slightly sweet caramel, earthy English hops. Flavor is clean and fresh although aroma is not, maybe should have again from keg or cask. Quite traditional English "strong" bitter.
