BBB63 (6507) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUL 20, 2004
750 Bottle: Clear amber hue with a frothy white head and good lace. The aroma has notes of taosted malts, apple, pear, almond, hazelnut, floral hops, and eathy yeast esters. The taste starts twangy with lots of fruits and a zesty yeast undertone. Nutty and woody on the finish with just a snap of bitters to keep it balanced. Some acidic nature lingers well into the evening. The feel is crisp and lively, earthy. A good beer and worth a try but not among the best of genre.

Lacing, white head, amber color. Has a toasty caramel undertone to it with light hops on top. Goes down easy.

jzzbassman (1525) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JUL 10, 2004
Amber with steady bubbling producing a lasting compact tan head. Toasted almond like aroma, with a very earthy, restrained spice to the flavor. Matched very well with the garlic pesto chicken and cheese ravioli dish.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 27, 2004
Amber in color with a small dissapating head. Nice aroma of sweet malts. Flavor mostly fruity with little hop character, finishing overly sweet. Nice beer but nothing special.

notalush (5513) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 21, 2004
bottled at brewtopia - a pretty standard biere de garde - some caramel going on, but mostly grassy and grainy - nothing stand-out, glad I had it at a fest instead of dishing the money out for a whole bottle on my own.

Pours almost copper with a small tanned head. Aroma is sweet with some hints of caramel, light spice, and malt. Bit of roastiness as well. Taste is nicely hopped with more of the malt coming through. There’s a hint of cocoa on the tongue but also an odd cardboard or paper-like taste towards the finish. Not bad though, mind you. A bit effervescent on the palate and the finish is bittersweet. Good beer.

TBone (14785) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 12, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 22, 2004 Bottled (BB 05/2005)
Nice dark amber with steady tanned head. Sweet dunkel-like aroma, some toffee notes. Medium-bodied, bittersweet with hops and caramel flavors. Warming. Suprisingly this remains me about "Porin Juhlaolut" by Sinebrychoff. (5/4/6/3/13 3.1)
Re-rate, bottled (BB 05/2005)
Clear amber color with good brownish head. Toffee and slight cognac nose. Burned sugar, toffee and malty-backbone in the flavor. Gives slightly harsh, alcoholic aftertaste. (5/4/6/3/13 3.2)

sayravai (4700) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 12, 2004
Very nice, clear and dark amber color with medium head. Sweetish, slightly alcoholic aroma with almonds. Quite malty, sweetish, earthy and woody, slightly acidic flavor with a long, bitter and sticky finish. Medium-bodied, very smoothly carbonated and creamy palate. A very pleasant, reasonably complex and easily drinkable brew. Enjoy it on a rainy day with good company :)

Looks real nice in the glass. Sparkling copper body topped by a head that is part fine-particled and dense, and part frothy collapsing pillow. The aroma in no way stands up to the appearnce, flat middle of the road maltiness. The flavor is about what one would expect given the aroma, some malt, some sugar, some yeast. Nothing stands out. The bosy is medium and can be a bit harsh.
