Lagerboy (1071) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 12, 2013
330 ml bottle. Clear orange yellow, off-white foam vanishes. Fruity, bready malt aroma. Fruity buttery malt taste, oaky vanilla, sweet whisky, faint herbal earthy hop, soft and oily. Soft-flat carbonation, medium bodied, lightly hopped. Disappointing. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

Palme (2993) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 12, 2013
0.33l bottle. A crystal clear golden one with a small but lasting just off-white head. The nose has caramel, toffee, almond flour, fyrstekake and a little bit of zesty apple. Not all that bad actually. Lots of sweetness in the taste. A bit to sweet for my liking to be honest. Tons of buttery toffee and almonds. It has a soft oily mouthfeel and a average carbonation level. Lots of apples - the red sweet kind here. Just not my kind of flavors in this, but it’s absolutely drinkable. 18.07.2013

Värd att köpa för att bara se på, vilken härlig färg. Innis ljuvliga smörkola måste man bara älska... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

yngwie (12721) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 30, 2013
Bottle. A clear, amber beer with a dense off-white head. Malty nose with toffee and dried fruits. Lots of malts in the aroma, caramel, toffee, and general fruitiness. There’s a nice bitterness in the flavor, with toffee and roasted notes. Bitterness towards the end. Fruity finish with caramel. A decent one, but boring. 131129

Foffern (1065) - Bodø, NORWAY - NOV 29, 2013
Bottle at home. The colour is golden dark straw-yellow with a medium, off-white head. Aroma of fudge, oak, grass and vanilla. The flavour is alike but not that complex, and is dominated by sweet malt and grassy hops. Has a slick and rich mouth feel, and a medium bitterness. A decent english strong ale but not that complex as suspected, and is quite easy-drinking.

maeib (8391) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2013
Bottled 10/11/13. An orange coloured beer with no head. Sweet toffee, oak and whisky. Skunky nose. Too sweet and too sickly and the whisky doesn’t work.

cthomas2390 (200) - Colorado, USA - NOV 16, 2013
Vegetal, sulfur, and diacetyl butterscotch on the aroma. Sweet vanilla malt character. Just a sweet version of tennants.

ChristianHR (151) - DENMARK - NOV 7, 2013
Has a bitter aroma of citrus. The color is golden with a minimal white head. Tastes sweet with notes of honey, caramel. I don’t get much of the oak or any bitterness.

RD400F (158) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 30, 2013
330ml bottle to tulip, appearance is a transparent amber with a large bright white head, poor retention. Aroma is strong...skunked hops, booze, caramel, oak, butterscotch, grass, and other stuff. Taste is very sweet and of cigarettes. Holy shit, was this supposed to be a soft drink? Not much of the oak either. Palate is cloying, low co2, horribly unbalanced, boozy and overall this was $5 not well spent. If I didn’t know otherwise I would’ve thought this was macro swill.

Bottle from B&M Bargains; clear golden amber pour with small bubbly white head, feint woody aroma, taste has a hint of vanilla some sweet honey, soft carbonation.
