Oginme (42) - New Hampshire, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Draught on Nitrogen: Pours a clean reddish amber with ample, fine foamed off-white head which had some persistence. Aroma was slightly sweet and malty. Taste was strong malt forward featuring caramel, slight toffee and ending with a mild roasted flavors. Medium-light bodied, it ended semi-dry with a subdued hop bitterness.

YigSvartka (58) - Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 24, 2014
Nice large frothy head. Translucent red/brown. Extremely stunted aroma consisting of malt, nuts, alcohol, and cream. Thankfully the taste supersedes the aroma significantly. Certainly suits its title as a cream ale. Very creamy. Nice brown characteristics of malt, nuts, and alcohol are present. No hops. Very smooth and creamy throughout with a lingering alcohol/cream taste. Killa shit.

Overall enjoyable ale, though no great aroma sensations as could be expected. Quite abrupt finish. Had this beer with a home-made Shepherd’s pie, nice combination.

Franzen (317) - SWEDEN - MAY 31, 2014
Aroma is pretty faint but there are some toffe and a bit floral there. Amber clear, white beige head. Taste is a bit caramelly and pretty floral and earthy bitterness. Light to medium body average carbonation. Pretty nice as a lighter beer, but would love more arome, however it is better on tap.

En ganska blaskig global produkt. Hm, svårt att komma med något mer begåvat. Absolut drickbar.

Being as big as it is, this beer is actually quite good and unless I get a pour from a tainted tap or a shite can, there hasn’t been a bad experience. As far as looks goes, the ruby-brown number is handsome and has a nice creamy, almost Guinness-quality head to match. Smells and tastes of roasted grains, peat, butterscotch, earth, nuts and maple. Very low hip-hop like most Scottish beers I have tried. All aboot the malts, laddy! Smooth, low carbonation feel with a mid-heavy chunkiness.
