Tasted from the tap several times at the Franciscan Well (Cork). Back on these happy days drinking irish beer and partying with irish people. This one was a Must! Next one please!

MarkoNm (2342) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - APR 20, 2016
Pours a clear darker shade of amber, light coppery color, topped with a medium sized and not really lasting beige head. Mild malty aroma with caramel and some sicuity notes. Some chalk but not too intrusive. Taste is mildly sweet, malty with some pleasant caramel presence. Gentle and very light. Nice one.

ciocanelu (1318) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - APR 6, 2016
Clear dark amber color with beige head. Aroma has mostly caramel malts and some earthy hops. Taste starts malty but not sweet, a bit astringent and hoppy on the finish. Medium to light body with low carbonation, feels a bit watery. Not bad overall, it’s easy drinking and has a nice aroma but it tastes quite bland.

Iznogud (2500) - CROATIA - MAR 27, 2016
Bottle, 330 ml from Pivana. Pours dark amber short lasting off white head. Lacks body, caramel malty, sweetish, bit artificial. Main problem for me is emptiness which sucks you in after first taste.

Lore (2168) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 24, 2016
reddish amber colour, moderate sized, not too stable slightly beige-ish off-white head; aroma of toast, floral honey, some wallnut and dried fruity notes; bittersweet taste with honey and bready notes; correct ale

nephirem (246) - CROATIA - FEB 12, 2016
Pours a clear dark ruby color with short lasting slightly off-white head. Smell is faint, bread, yeast and caramel. Gets more intense as it warms up a bit. Thin body with medium carbonation. Watery texture. Taste is bittersweet. Aroma of malts, yeast, bread, caramel, toffee. Dry finish. Overall, a bit too thin and watery. Aroma doesn’t come through strong enough. Could be better.

luttonm (4618) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 28, 2016
Bottle in Belgrade. Clear, coppery red-brown, soapy tan head. Sweet copper-cider aroma. Bubbly body, thick malty copper. Tasty enough.

0.33 l bottle at O?ujsko Pub (Märzen Pub) in Tkal?a, Zagreb, Croatia. Served to cold. Clear ruby to chestnut, very small off white head. Light dry fruit notes, malty background, no hops. Light and watery, no character. Some biscuit sweetness. Again no hops, no finish. Not good.
