Light brown medium head, smells of thin coffee and caramel. Taste is like a light brown ale with sweet notes of vanilla and caramel. Aftertaste of coffee grounds. Not a bad beer considering it is a store bought beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle picked up by dad from Geltsdale Brewery, cheers dad. Consumed at home Sunday 17.08.13 Reddy brown pour with light tan head. I chilled this (not sure why) so aroma is difficult to pick up. Maybe as it warms ever so slightly perhaps I"m getting a little watery spent coffee grains. Touch chewy with some caramel and biscuit. Its one of yer’ fairly average twiggy brown beers as some would describe them. Its ok. A5 A3 T6 P3 Ov11 2.8

tfredvik (941) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 1, 2013
Dark copper body with a small, beige head consisting of short-lived big bubbles. Quite strong aroma with burn notes, burnt sugar, stale coffee and cigarette. Hardy any bitterness in the finish, light to moderate sweet initial taste. Flavours follow the aroma. Quite light bodied, dry finish, soft carbonation. Nice-ish, but forgettable.
[50 cl bottle, enjoyed 9 months before BB date, from Meny Alna, Oslo]

larsga (5962) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 2, 2013
Medium yellowish beige head. Clear deep dark red body with carbonation. Roasty earthy crisp bread aroma with cereal and flowers notes. Dry-sweet earthy roasty toffee taste with grainy rye crisp bread notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft, mealy mouthfeel. Dryish earthy roasty grainy aftertaste with dusty wooden burnt notes. Minty toffee notes, too. Lovely, vivid, complex, and highly drinkable. (0.5l bottle, Meny Strømmen Storsenter.)
