harrisoni (16708) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2005
Bottle, St Albans Beer Festival 2005. Red/russet with beige head. Some good caramel, barley sugar aromas which carry on into the body of this beer. Quite drinkable. Bit too sweet but good spice/dry hop finish. Hop nose is quite subtle

yngwie (16315) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 17, 2008
Bottle. It pours a nice dark golden body with a lively carbonation and a decent off-white head. Pleasant but weak aroma of malt, sweetness, a little nuttyness and fruity hoppyness. Quite sweet on the palate, full body, with caramel, some lightly roasted malt and fruityness. Some lingering bitterness, adding joy to the sweet and malty finish. There’s some notes of cooked vegetables in the finish, pulling my score down a little bit, but if drank by numbers, I don’t think it would be noticed. A nice one, easy to drink and quite refreshing.

Koelschtrinker (15761) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 14, 2011
Eindeutig eins der besseren Oktoberfestbiere. Süffig ist es natärlich, wie bei Bieren dieser Sorte kaum anders zu erwarten. Eine gut dosierte Herbe schwingt von Anfang bis Ende mit, ein malziger Unterton ist durchaus in einigen Teilen zu erschmecken. Ein wenig fehlt der Pepp jedoch schon, ich vermisse einen ausgereifteres Aroma. Irgendwie fällt mir zu diesem Bier das Wort "kernig" ein. Test vom 20.10.2005, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 6,10,11,10,14,9 - 9,55

Dedollewaitor (15324) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 14, 2012
Bottle @ Getranke Hoffmann, Flensburg. Pours clear amber with a white head. Grain, bread and a bit of caramel. Fairly hoppy end. Medium bodied. Ok.

brokensail (15271) - San Leandro, California, USA - FEB 2, 2011
A: The pour is a deep, dark copper color with a couple of fingers worth of off-white head. S: Lots of sweet and bready malts to begin with. Earthy hop notes along with a slight spice quality. I get nutmeg and all-spice for the most part, and there is a fair amount of yeast. T: The bread and hops are at the forefront. Semi-sweet malts along with floral and earthy hops. The bitterness is quite light, but a lot of the same spices that the nose had. M: Medium in body with a lively carbonation to it. Really refreshing, actually. D: Another top German tick, and it’s on the list with good reason. I liked this one quite a lot and will make sure to pick some up each year.

MiP (15028) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 29, 2005
Bottle. Dark copper colour, small head. Looks flat. A little malty. The alcohol stands out a bit, perhaps it is because of the combination with a hop flavour that is a little harsh. Mild carbonation, which I like. Good mouthfeel.
