This ale poured a deep amber colour with a soapy, bright white head. No lacing. Scents include malt, caramel, toast and dough. First sip was very nice and malty with flavours of caramel, toast and cereal most prodominant. Finish is malty with caramel and toast flavours lingering with a light bitterness.

This bottle is "past date" but I donít see how thatís possible. Anyhoo, judging by the ratings below, my experience wasnít much different than those who tried a fresher bottle. Caramel, toasted grain, straw, light spiciness, fairly watery. Slightly dry finish with a hint of bitterness. Itís not terrible, itís just kind of blah.

HopsandBolts (191) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 23, 2014
650 ml bottle from the LCBO. Appearance: Pours a clear deep brown with almost a finger of white head. Minimal retention and little lacing. Aroma: Malt, biscuit and something I canít quite identify that is throwing things off. Flavours: Malt, straw, bit of caramel. Mouthfeel: Thin with moderate carbonation. Overall: The aroma wasnít that great on this one but the flavours were okay. Everything seemed muted and subdued without any real character. Not much more to say.

I had this beer a while back and it was one of the worst beers I ever had. Iím not sure if they changed the recipe but this is actually pretty respectable and have no problem drinking more of this.

MrHangover (3213) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 29, 2014
Bottle @ THT November. Pours a clear brown beer with a very small off white head on top. Aroma of sugar, caramel and slightly herbal. Flavor is thin, sweet and chocolately. Quite boring and thin, watery moutfheel. Not very interesting.

Sampled from bottle @ THT November. Clear amber color, small off-white head. Aroma is pretty grainy, donít get anything else. Tastes very malty and grainy as well with a slight hint of sweetness and nuts. Average body and carbonation. I donít like it.
