Gehbe (223) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - AUG 15, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2016 Pours clear amber-brown with a bit light tan head and nice lacing. Sweet aroma of caramel, toast, cooked bread, dried apples, brown sugar, alcohol, a little spice. Taste is sweet but not cloying, a little bitterness emerges towards finish. Full body, medium carbonation, nice alco warmness, not as sticky as expected. A nice winter sipper.

Grzesiek79 (3997) - Radom, POLAND - MAY 1, 2016
Sredniak, naprawdę bez rewelacji inne piwa z Islandii o wiele smaczniejsze. Czkawke miałem bo było zbyt słodkawe, zbyt karmelowe. Piana ladna bardzo szybko opada, kolor rubinowo czerwony, Klarowne w zapachu trochę kasztanow jadalnych i truskawek. Ale smak to tylko karmel i to w nieskonczonosc się ciagnacy. Niezbyt udane chyba.
