Bottled. An amber beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma has notes malt and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, and a bit of honey, leading to a bitter finish. Thanks yespr for sharing.

(On tap) Beautiful, clear dark amber with an off-white head. Neutral aroma, perhaps with a wee whiff of caramel. Medium body, sweetish malty with some caramel. No bitterness. Rather boring actually. 280306

Bottled@The 1st Vaasa CS/ES beer session (thanks ER). Amber colour with mediumsized slightly off-white head. Aroma is slightly fruity, rich on the bready malts, some slight floral hoppyness and grass as well. flavour is much the same with some slight sweetish notes. Actually very pleasant to drink.

Amber/orange, off white head. Hoppy and alittle metallic aroma. Flavor brings more malts and fruit, maybe alittle thin. Boring finish.

brokensail (13596) - Orange County, California, USA - APR 29, 2011
A: The pour is a sort of brownish red color with a short lived off-white head. S: Certainly not the most pleasing aroma. Really kind of harsh with green apple and over-roasted/burnt malts. There is a little bit of burnt toast in there too, which I donít find all that appealing. T: Flavor is slightly better but still sort of bitter and harsh. More of the burnt toast flavor. I donít get a lot of the caramel type flavors that I would associate with a red beer. No hop flavor, but definitely some bitterness. M: The mouthfeel is one good thing about this beer. Medium in body with a moderate to high carbonation. O: Disappointing. I remember liking this beer several years back, but every time Iíve had it since then, itís been a real let down.
