Bottle. Brown with a small head. Quite poerful with low carbonation. Some maltiness. Weird but interesting taste.

Pours hazy amber with a small head. Nose shows bready and nutty malt, as well as some brown sugar. Flavours include more brown sugar, toasty malt, a bit of a nutty note.

ruigo (2227) - PORTUGAL - AUG 9, 2016
33cl bottle. Almost clear dark amber colour with a off-white head. Caramel, toffee and citric aroma. Average carbonation and medium to light body. Taste is sweet with some bitterness towards the finish. Overall, drinkable.

Gehbe (177) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - JUL 7, 2016
Pours amber clear, big tan head, nice lacing. Nose of different malts and caramel with some dried fruit and toffee notes and hints of herbs/spice. Taste is sweetish with very light bitterness following suit. Nice smooth palate, medium round body. A well balanced amber ale, definitely underrated.

LazyPyro (527) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2016 330ml bottle. Clear dark amber colour with a thin off-white head. Aroma of sweet caramel malt, slightly cardboardy. Taste is sorely lacking, some weak malty notes, bread, a herbally hop bitterness. Strange mouthfeel, seems to foam up from the heavy carbonation, gets better as it warms up though. Hmm... disappointing, bland... certainly not as good as their other beers.

WaddlingPlatypus (124) - Durham, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2016
330ml. Golden in colour with a thin head of pale, off-white bubbles. Aroma of red berries, hops, and straw. Unfortunately lacking in taste, the flavour is of light hops and a hint of butter. The aftertaste is slightly bitter and buttery.

heavy (2750) - Split, CROATIA - JUN 14, 2016
Jan. ’16. A 0.33 l bottle from Prosi Exotic supermarket, Vienna. It poured lightly hazy amber brownish body with a tiny head. Caramel and some dogfood in aroma. Dusty. Flavor was bitter herbal and lemon hoppy with toasted caramel malt counterpart. Medium body with quite a long herbal bitter finish with toasted malt, especially caramel malt base. Okay, but I somehow naively expected a craft ale, not a macro gimmick. There are better, mass produced regular pale lagers around.

JohnRMurdoch (4311) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JUN 1, 2016
12oz bottles from Ales By Mail. Reddish brown, good head. Toffee malt aroma. Toffee flavour with hint of liquorice. Smooth with sweet aftertaste. Not world class but much better than the ratings suggest.

Estebanik (718) - Lublin, POLAND - MAY 21, 2016
Duuuża czapa, trwałej piany. Bardzo fajnie, inna sprawa, że piwo jest ewidentnie przegazowane. Aromat chlebowy, karmelowy. W smaku to samo + jak już piwo nieco się odgazuje, to jest przyjemnie gładkie. Może leciutko alkoholowe na finiszu. Jak już się odgazuje, to nawet spoko.

vidmidia (281) - Vila Velha, BRAZIL - MAY 4, 2016
Cobreada, límpida. Espuma fina, creme, média, de média duração. Aroma resinoso, com notas cítricas e de abóbora, casca de laranja e de cânfora. Sabor resinoso que passa a adocicado e termina em amargor prolongado. Notas de limão, resina e madeira. Leve adstringência.
