MarkoNm (403) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - MAR 22, 2014
Pours a clear coppery color with a hefty and quite solid just off-white head, The aroma is quite weak and pretty neutral, only small hopy are detectable. The taste starts sweetish and fruity and following this after same time there is a pleasant bitter taste. The finish is nicely bitter with that feeling staying with you for some time. Very nice and very drinkable. Thumbs up.

DandyWolfFloyd (641) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Aroma - caramel and light hops Appearance - body is amber color; liquid is clear; head about 1/2" and quickly subsides, some lacing Taste - nice caramel type of malt, some Fuggles and some Kent’s I believe. Nice and malted Palate - body is above a light; texture is thin; carbonation soft; the finish caramel and abrupt.

Poured from can. Copper color. Half inch lingering head. Light aroma of alcohol. Good example of the class. Not overly bitter. Full bodied with a fairly smooth finish.

Fruity but not too much. Definitely a good cold beer for a hot summer day. Might be good hangover and burger beer also. Tastes good!

Bendrixian (1056) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - FEB 20, 2014
Can. Pours clear with copper colour and fine bubbled head. The aroma is more expressive than I thought it would be and definitely is about the slighlty roasted malts and toffee and biscuit notes. I does have a hint of floral hops. On the palate that toffee and light roast notes shine on the initial burst and finishes with a slightly bittering note but the experience is rather disappointing. It is classically styled and boring.

samzim (141) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 19, 2014
Scent of malt, toffee, and yeast. Clear copper colour. Slight sweetness at the front followed by mild bitterness. Flavours of Malt, carmel, and wine. Medium body with mild carbonation. Nothing too memorable.
