AndyW68 (1374) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAR 5, 2013
Reddish with a bit of yellow. Musty sweet on the nose. Taste is sweet and coppery. Tastes like drinking an ok beer with old copper pennies in your mouth. Yes, I fell for the pennies beat breathalizer rumor.

BillWyce (964) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 15, 2016
Pours clear red-amber with a 1 1/2 finger off-white head. Aroma of nutty malt with a touch of caramel. Body is a bit lighter than medium, and somewhat watery. Brief finish. Caramelly flavor with some nutty malt notes. Maybe a touch of citrus underneath.

Xevious (78) - Amarillo, Texas, USA - MAR 18, 2016
Pours a near clear red with s bubbly head. No real aroma, just faint bread. Tastes of faint molded bread. Goes down watery. Nothing offensive, but nothing special. Drinkable.

Nothing but dirty socks and burnt sugar. Garnet pour thatís only good thing. Bad.

tfontana (571) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 8, 2015
Draft pour into pint glass. Aroma is sweet caramel. Appearance is clear ruby red with small ring of head and little sparkle and no lacing. Taste is moderately sweet caramel and roasted malts. Palate is light to medium bodied with average texture, soft carbonation and sweet finish. Overall, not a nuanced beer by any means but if you like a fairly light beer that is full of caramel, this could do it for you.

Cunningham (6674) - Halden, NORWAY - NOV 21, 2015
A bit amber-ish color with a small off white head. Moderate and mild caramel and a bit bready aroma. Medium body and an ok carbonation. Mild caramel malty, bready and herbal flavor.
[Bottle from Roberth]
