Christian (10781) - Odense, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2006
Copper brown with a medium off-white head with some lacing. Nutty malt aroma with some flowers and dried fruits. Sweet malt flavour, but with a good bitter (grapefruit) finish.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 24, 2006
Poured from the bottle, a clear brown with a good frothy off-white head. An earthy malty aroma with hints of sweet caramal and slightly smokey. The flavour has sweet caramal again with hints of stewed plums. A smooth mouth feel initially, giving way to a strong bitter and dry finish. OK, but I prefer the Youngs Winter Warmer.

Habanero (2179) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - JAN 21, 2006
Bottle: Pours with a clear, dark amber body and a medium, relatively short lasting, beige head. Spicy, hoppy and malty aroma. Pleasant light sweet flavour with caramel - some hops are precent too and notes of chocolate. Light to medium bodied. Nice bitter, lasting finish. This beer is well balanced and enjoyable.

Ingevara (771) - SWEDEN - DEC 12, 2005
Dark brown. Full mature aroma. Small head. Had this beer with a meal of meatballs made from reindeer mince and spiced with juniper berries, and that was a perfect match. The juniper flavor is evident in the beer also, together with a marked bitterness and a littlel bit of sugar, just enough to enhance everything else. Fullerís never seem to disappoint me!

Pours a clear brown/red with a diminishing white head. Sweet and bitter. Very malty with aromas of caramel and pepper. Lots of bitter hops. Medium bodied. Bitter finish.
