(S láskavým dovolením JB84) Tažká kvapalina a medi. Absencia peny. Nos je zvláštne varenej zeleniny a surového zrna a sladké. Chuťou, ktoré sú v rovnakom smere kontaminované obilie, chmeľ, chýba chuť kukurice. Nemotorná ústa, bublinky mŕtvy, sirupovitá textúry. Posledný nepríjemné, zrejmý problém.

Copper/orange with thinnish, but lingering head. Aroma is rich grainy malts, bit of ale-like fruity esters and floral hops. Taste is really quite bitter, first of all - from start to the long finish. Malt character is subdued. Hops seem more grassy. Nice carbonation. A little mineral-y?

yarry (527) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 2, 2011
500ml bottle, 4.4% a/v A nice brown/copper colour looking kind of like an IPA, thin off white head accompanies. The aroma is alot of caramel and nutty scents, it smalls very candy like actually. The taste is similar but balanced with some toasty malts and nice hop backing. A bit metallic on the aftertaste but not enough to cause much trouble, a pretty interesting and well executed beer!
