Pours red gold with a thin, creamy head that rapidly dissipates. Faint smells of wood, malts, and mildew. Medium-bodied, medium carbonation, smooth, finishes dry with just a hint of sweetness. The taste of malt is predominant. A pleasure to drink, but nothing exotic.

anstei (534) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - NOV 29, 2015
Tap. An odd alt, especially the palate which is simply not good. Pretty boring up there, and then we have unrefined explosion of taste. Meh.

ferryman72 (43) - NORWAY - NOV 15, 2015
Pours dark red/copper with an airy, white head with yellow notes. Hops, malts, dough, earthy aromas. Disappointingly weak, light sweet taste, with some fizz but a great aftertaste of coffee. Dont drink it too chilled or youll miss most of the nuances. Carlsberg claims this beer to be "unique" and "distinctive". Its not. Its a pleasant, summer drink, actually. If they had advertised it as that, Id not been so disappointed.

Arek (694) - Zielona Gra & Wrocław, POLAND - OCT 24, 2015
20.02.13: Bottle 0.5 l.
Ciemno bursztynowe piwo o puszystej ale szybko opadającej pianie. W smaku dominuje przyjemna goryczka. Wyczuwalne są też nuty słodowe i owocowe, całość niestety trochę mdła i płytka.

Avetixz (53) - Wolfsburg, GERMANY - OCT 14, 2015
Strong malt aroma, bread, cereal, roasty, as well as some hoppy, floral notes. Pours transparent dark amber liquid with a small, soft white head. Medium bitterness, different dark malt notes, roasty and earthy in the start, some bitter hops, then gets a little sweet, caramel, chocolate and citrus. Bitter aftertaste. Light body with a creamy, thin texture and soft carbonation. Decent taste with a good facet of malt flavours, mixed with some hops bitterness. Nothing too special.

jamesie1857 (1769) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2015
500ml bottle from Beers of Europe - Pours a clear golden copper with a white head. Malty aroma with notes of hops and wood. Flavour is malt with wooden and flowery notes, some earthy hops at the end. Not a style Im fond of, but not bad nonetheless.

Bottle. Clear, dark brownish amber in color, not much head. Aroma is caramel and dried fruit. Taste was caramel with hints of vanilla and just a note of herbs.

DrNosha (726) - Baden Wrttemberg, Germany, GERMANY - SEP 24, 2015
Leicht Malzaromen. Das Buchenholz rieche ich leider nicht. Malziger Antrunk, dann Getrockneter Apfel und Hopfen. Im Abgang sanft bitter. Rundes aber auch etwas langweiliges Bier
