UXO (1406) - CANADA - MAY 8, 2015
Pours clear slightly copper-tined pale amber with two fingers of rocky light tan head, good retention and patchy lacing. (3/5) Nose is caramel, mild dark fruit, light grassy hops. (6/10) Taste is moderately strong sweet, mild bitter. (6/10) Medium bodied, lively to moderate carbonation, building bitter and mildly boozy finish. (4/5) Not bad and certainly quite enjoyable with some cheese and sausage from the same convenience/grocery store. (12/20)

SarkyNorthener (3923) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2015
750ml caged bottle from carrefour, Soissons, France. Copper beer with residual head. Aroma is malts, caramel and alcohol. Taste is dry leaf, malts, alcohol and caramel. A touch harsh. Decent.

Swamp_Thing (49) - Florida, USA - APR 3, 2015
Too sweet for me, but cinnamon and honey front and center but not terribly so, although a little thick on the tougue - another consequesnce of the high sugar. Light hops, low carbination do not help the matter.

Holmen1 (4701) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 24, 2015
0,33 flaske delt med Ovesen på tappekveld mars-15: mørk upusset kobber. Ikke helt frisk aroma og smak av tørket frukt og bær. Uspennende og lite som minner om det jeg forbinder med biere de garde.

Holmen2 (2733) - NORWAY - MAR 24, 2015
Bottle shared with JMD at HNB 24.03.15. Dark orange. Off-white head and lacing. Sweet and slightly unfresh aroma. Fruity and with berries. Similar taste, also with dried fruits, dried berries and wine gum.

StuffWine (147) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 21, 2015
Poured a dark amber with good and lasting off-white head. Aroma of malts and molasses, with hints of rock candy. Taste is a wall of sugar, moving to dark malt and obvious alcohol, little bitterness at all. Full bodied, long malt finish that is progressively drier. Overall, good, but way too overpoweringly sweet for my liking.

McWorta (1414) - LUXEMBOURG - FEB 21, 2015
Clear copper-amber colour with a frothy white head. Noses of toast, caramel and a light herbal hop infusion. Light carbonation, slick and a medium body. Rather sweet at first with dome bitterness coming up. Nicely balanced offering a medium finish, another good beer for creamy cheeses.

MarkoNm (2263) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - FEB 7, 2015
Pours a fairly clear amber color, topped with a nice white head. Malty aroma easily picked up with some caramel and yeasty smell, notes of fruits also present. Taste starts malty and sweet, some yeasty notes and obvious alcohol. Bitterness in the end. Not that nice to be fair.

Une bonne bière avec un gout de caramel. Il lui manque l’âme d’une bière artisanale mais elle reste tout à fait correcte
