Rune (7348) - Tromsø, - JAN 11, 2010
500ml see-through bottle bought from bestillingsutvalget, Systembolaget.. Firm, off-white head, slowly vanishing over a bright, copper-amber body. Spotty lacework on the glass. Smell of caramel malts along with dry hops. Fine transition from aroma to the flavours of plain bready malts and delicate hops. Smooth and long-lived bitter tail. Should make a great session beer (The Elvis memorial day, Tromsø 08.01.2010).

martjoobolut (337) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 16, 2014
0,5L bottle. Pours clear red amber-copper with off white head. The head stays for a moment. Aroma is caramel, malt, sweetness, and English hops. Taste is malt, caramel sweetness with some bitterness thrown in. Finish is short bitterness. Overall: not awful, but also not really good.

Rahmer (9) - NETHERLANDS - APR 8, 2014 does not count
Bottle. Definitely I’d like that there was more hoppy and rich flavour, but this one have a strengths though. Gentle sweet caramel aroma and smooth taste with notes of hops, milk chocolate or coffee (difficult to catch) and fruit nuance. Not too bad, but bored... a little.

ronaldtheriot (1100) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - MAR 22, 2014
Greene King IPA Export has a thin-to-medium off-white head, some lacing left on the glass, noticeable bubble streams, and a rather murky, amber-brown appearance. The aroma is of rich, sweet, brown bread crust, yeast, caramel candy, and hop resin. Taste is the same, with some mellow bitterness and a fairly odd earthiness. Mouthfeel is medium and a bit chewy, and Greene King IPA Export finishes semi-dry, refreshing, and interesting. RJT

Belle couleur brune dorée; arômes et goût intéressant mais trop discrets; un peu de malt et de houblon; finale légèrement amère; une bonne bière sans plus,

Marcius (142) - Geneva, SWITZERLAND - JAN 8, 2014
Appearance with copper color and low head. Medium Aroma: caramel, aged wood and burnt sugar. In the mouth, it is a lightweight IPA without much personality, the caramel is more evident than the hops. But it was worth the tasting.

Moebbels (241) - FINLAND - JAN 6, 2014
Clear dark orange body with a thin white head. Nose is mild with notes of hay, caramel and caramel. Taste is mildly sweet with a short dry finish. Carbonation is average and thexpalate neutral. Very bland and quite boring.

visionthing (2391) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 30, 2013
50cl bottle at Feel good music cafe, Tartu. Pours dark amber with an off-white head. Caramely aroma with malty notes and lightly hoppy. Hints of mild citrus and fruits. Medium sweet with a bitterness on the lighter side. Weak in flavour and fairly boring, but drinkable enough.
