2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Small, yellowish head, shrinking double-quick; dark cola-colour of the bottle turns out to be 100% the beer... clear glass bottle, faugh! Molasses, sweet-fruity nose, raspberry essence and sweet drop. Sweet, again artificially raspberry flavour, with underlying dark malts, not fermented or hopped. Empty, syrupy palate, near-viscous. And now for the surprise. Despite the -1 for the bottle, and the scathing (well-deserved) comments on aromas and flavours, this "beer" is actually a near-perfect childrens’ drink - much more advisable than the industrial American-inspired concoctions usually to their disposal. Just not for me, please.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle, courtesy of Pinball. A clear, brown beer topped by a beige head. Cola-like nose with candy and some wort. Cola in the form of winegum-cola bottles mostly. Caramel-sweet, slightly wort-like flavor with dark rye bread. Thin on the palate. Hmm, sort of reminiscent of a Danish hvidtøl, and not very good either, way too candyish. 090822

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2012 40cl bottle from a Polish shop in Slough. Reddish brown with a pink head; aroma of raspberry and malt; the flavour is a strange combination of sweet malts and sharp raspberry fruit - but somehow it works. Certainly different.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pink mid-sized head. Deep dark red barely translucent body. Fruity roasty aroma with raspberry notes is pretty faint. Dryish roasty caramel and raspberry taste, somewhat one-dimensional, but surprisingly harmonic. Some sweetness, too. Mid-bodied. Mild mouthfeel. Dryish fruity raspberry aftertaste with tart roasty notes. An odd one, this, but definitely drinkable. (0.4l bottle, Polonius, Oslo.)
