Hanuta06 (426) - Washington, USA - JAN 15, 2013
Serving: from bottle--purchased at Full Throttle Bottles. Aroma: moderately hoppy. Appearance: small, frothy, off-white, initial head with fair lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Clear, sparkling, orange body. Taste: light to moderately bitter, initial flavor and lightly bitter finish with average duration. Palate: light body, watery texture and soft to lively carbonation. Overall: one of my favorite beers. It’s thirst-quenching, has enough hops to keep it interesting, but is also not overly bitter.

Miedziane, klarowne. Piana kremowa, drobna, obfita. W aromacie słody i lekka metaliczna nuta. W smaku goryczka, trochę chmielowa, trochę słodowa. Pozostawia posmak. Przeciętny alt.

neur0 (1085) - GERMANY - JAN 16, 2016
(Flasche) Es hat eine dunkle bronzene bis rostbraune Farbe, ist klar filtriert mit einer fast weißen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist würzig, mit einer fast blumigen Note, etwas nach verbranntem Stahl und einer karamelligen Gundnote. Der Geschmack ist schlank, malzig mit einer kleinen angenehmen bernzigen Note und retronasal ist es fast blumig. Der Abgang ist weil, etwas metallisch und im Nachgeschmack kommt die Röstnote durch.

guzgorog (637) - FRANCE - DEC 8, 2015
Ambrée cuivrée avec des reflets rouge sang, mousse blanche moyenne. Nez malté : céréales, sirop d’érable, caramel. Attaque maltée et légèrement sucrée, finale légèrement amère sur des houblons herbeux. Corps moyen et bonne carbo, longueur moyenne. Rien d’exceptionnel mais pas mauvais

hauxe (285) - Butzbach, GERMANY - DEC 5, 2015
Pleasantly bitter with an underlying "hoppiness". Wonderful, foamy long lasting head. Pleasant, if somewhat lacking in complexity. Goes well with food.

Brewhemia (151) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 15, 2015
Beautiful clear deep amber color with white head that lingers beautifully. Not much aroma but some cellar aromas and some grass/cereal. The taste is subtle and a light bitterness dominates with a light sweetness taking over in the finish. Afinetuned balance I think. I like it. Good level of carbonation.
