bbbeer (729) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Hazy medium brown with small off white head. The aroma is uninspiring with some malt, spice, and skunk. Full body with just a little alcohol. Flavor is much better than expected from the aroma. Good balance of sweet brown sugary malt and herbal hops with some spiciness and pleasantly sour finish. Pretty easy to drink too.

Habanero (4027) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - JUL 15, 2015
Bottled. Pours hazy deep brown with a small beige head. Aroma of dark dried fruit, caramel and spicy notes. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry and slightly bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. A very nice Barley. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Bottle@Home. The aroma is pretty great. Flavour is OK but not exceptional. Full and burning. Just a bit metallic.

Palidor19 (3164) - Brandon, Florida, USA - AUG 5, 2011
Heavy syrup flavor with a strong hoppy that has a real bite. The mouth feel is full and doesn’t end throughout the beer. It has it’s flaws but it’s very drinkable

Bottle @ home. Aroma is porty red fruit, caramel malt, apple cider, some spice, grenadine. Flavour is red fruit, caramel malt, some spices. Touch of alcohol. A bit old (it’s an old bottle) but still okay.
