0,5l can. Nice, coffee colour. Mild, malty aroma. Kinda watery and corn-ish. A hint of coffee. Long lasting, white head. Low carbonation, pleasant. No hops,little malt. This is just too bland and dull.

Krigla (62) - SLOVENIA - OCT 6, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 16, 2014 On tap.Hazy dark copper colour with creamy beige head. Soft carbonation. Aroma of roasted malts. Taste starts sweet, caramel and finishes a bit bitter. Overall very good beer, one of my favourites. But better on tap than from can or bottle.

Marcius (221) - Geneva, SWITZERLAND - OCT 4, 2014
Appearance with amber / copper color and a small head. Medium aroma of roasted malt. On the palate, it manages to be light and refreshing.

ljthiessen (468) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - SEP 29, 2014
On tap. Amber pour with that signature thick creamy beige head. Malty aroma, caramel and cream. Light body with some malty caramel. Not a lot going on, but a decent enough beer. Better than a macro lager.

Rodriguez (264) - Quito, ECUADOR - SEP 28, 2014
Dark copper, red in color, white head, but lasted just less than 20 seconds. Good carbonation. Subtle caramel aroma and flavor. The roasted barley gives it a very dry character that gives an impression like roasted. It is not my style of beer but it is a good example of this style of beer.

maxwelldeux (3763) - Everett, Washington, USA - SEP 28, 2014
Draught, on nitro at an Irish pub. Pours a clear brown color with a moderate creamy and pillowy off-white head on it. Nose is bready and yeasty, with some light barley. Taste is light and smooth, very creamy, and just slightly bitter. Drinks and tastes like a lighter version of Guinness.
