Beer5000 (5319) - Kristiansand, - NOV 11, 2012
330 ml bottle. A deep amber body with a nice beige head. Light aroma of mild roasted malt and bark from tree. Flavor is light malty with a hint of liquorices, almost no bitterness. Thin body and weak aftertaste. This is just a very boring beer, but the apperance is actually really nice.

ElDesmadre (2507) - Mikołów, POLAND - NOV 13, 2015
Bottle. Slightly watery texture but on the upside, it is crisp. Marginally sweet, with a flavour of caramel, coffee, and light roast. Not bad at all.
