johndoughty (4090) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2010
Bottle bought from Asda in Folkestone whilst on holiday.Dark brown and slightly dry with a small head. Not a lot of body but enough flavour to make it a pleasant if average example of this style.

erickok (3796) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - JAN 2, 2012
Light brown, almost clear body with frothy beige head. Nice aroma of English hops, lightly spiced, cashew nuts and muffins. Bitter, straightforward taste. Easily drinkable and enjoyable. Not overly complex though and definitely not a beast. Surely nice in its style. (50cl bottle, 4,00 EUR)

rauchbier (3634) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2012 Re-rate - Bottled, from Asda Scunthorpe. Chestnut red, thin but lasting off white head andlow condition. Sweet grainy maltiness, brown sugar, some peppery spiciness and a low burnt fruit in the nose, quite soft in the mouth with an upfront earthy chalkiness giving way to a liquorice sweetness that with time becomes bitter once again, lingering licorice bitterness in the finish with an underlying earthiness. Initial Rating Date: 9/8/2003 - Bottle conditioned. Chestnut red, thin but lasting off white head and moderate condition. Raisin, tobacco, malt and hops in the nose. Quite unbalanced in the mouth with syrupy licorice and mouthfilling nuttiness that becomes coconutty towards the end. Some hops apparent in finish but nuts still dominate. (6-3-6-3-11 2.9)

goozen (3068) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - FEB 11, 2011

Indra (2662) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - NOV 7, 2004
Bottled, from Pitfield’s in London. Rather exotic and complex aroma with some floral, spicy hops, pineapple, pear, dried apricot, various leafy herbs, toasty malt, anise, mint, tree bark and persimmon(?). Medium red-orange color, cloudy, with a lasting, fine, creamy off-white head. Flavor profile is hop oriented -- spicy, flowery and lightly citric, with moderate amounts of biscuity malt and hop bitterness and a fruity, tangy, nutty, dry finish. Body is medium, the palate finely effervescent. Interesting and unique.
