overtheline (114) - Inverness, SCOTLAND - JUL 8, 2015
500ml bottle pours clear copper with decent, lasting off white head. Nose is toasted grain and roasted nuts with a bit of chocolate. Taste is malty, nutty and a bit of vanilla oak. Never gets too sweet, hops are herbal and spicey and bitter the beer beautifully. Low carbonation, medium body. Really good job for the style of beer.

Bottle Aldi - 01/-6/2015. Lovely aroma, light crystal malts, pleasant fruitiness/american hop aroma (citrus/strawberry?). Taste is light/bready malt, caramel, nutty, moderate fruit/hop, very light bitter. Light carbonation, slightly creamy yet crisp mouthfeel, very refreshing. Great beer all round

500 ml brown bottle with a BB date of June 2016. Consumed in Largoward, Fife on 2 May 2015. Nice fresh mix of hops and malts in the aroma with a solid punch of caramel. The flavor is more malty but about equally bitter and sweet. Marginal 8.

YantarCoast (967) - Moscow, RUSSIA - APR 22, 2015
500ml bottle. Pours cloudy amber with no head. Bottled in December 2013, and less than 10 days before use by date... Aroma of chocolate and fruit. Taste is toffee, chocolate and nuttiness, but also some sourness, which is probably down to the beer's advanced age.

Rob_D_UK (1369) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAR 5, 2015
Clear chestnut colour. Small frothy white head. The flavour starts off malty, turning roasted with a sort of spicy malt note. Later comes a mild grassy hoppiness followed by a medium bitterness which is quite clean.
