UPDATED: JUN 22, 2008 I would say, this is definitely a good weekend treat. It is a tad overpriced in this country, but it definitely goes down smooth and very flavorful. Love the roasted malt flavor and is definitely a great beer from a macro brewery. The only thing I find unpleasant about this brew, is the metallic odor that is noticed prior to tasting, but it thankfully does not translate to the actual flavour itself.

Pinball (11928) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 19, 2008
can. faint aroma, looks real great clear, brownish, large thick smooth whipped cream like foam. Taste is vanilla, faint sugar and honey, some hop bitterness in the end. aftertaste is a combination of honey and hops. refreshing session beer. my only complaint is a small hint of a sour taste barely noticeable.

NMC01 (70) - DENMARK - JUN 16, 2008
Can with Nitrogen-smoothener. Pours nicely with that special show going as the beer settles. Very creamy and light to medium malty with some degree of sweetness. Hops are totally absent and I think that drinking too many of this particular beer will make you hate it.

scanovajr (674) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - JUN 14, 2008
Bottled. A dark amber beer with a beige head. Aroma is sweety and malty, some smoked notes. Taste is very malty, notes of caramel and roasted malt. A good surprise for a macro. A imple and good beer.

kfl (71) - DENMARK - JUN 11, 2008
Can (with ball) 50cl. Pours a cloudy reddish- brown bottom with a large brown creamy top which changes into full reddish-brown body. Small off-white fully lasting creamy head. Light sweet aroma with hints of caramel. Pleasant, balanced taste which finishes slight dry and bitter. Overall: Looks fantastic when poured into a glass - unfortunately the thin, boring flavor canít live up to the looks.

On draft in a bar in Paris. Pours amber with a small head The taste is soft and oily with a nice bitterness all over it. It is nice but not special

buzzoven (376) - JAPAN - JUN 2, 2008
From the can...colour of mohagany amber with a faint golden brown hue. Topped off with a light tan fluffy head. Not much of a smell but a great taste...smooth and creamy mouthfeel with a nice mellow bitterness with some slight sweetness in there as well. A very well made, easily drinkable, finely balanced beer. Quite enjoyable.

UnholyBrewing (595) - Central Florida(Upper Hell), Florida, USA - JUN 1, 2008
...in the draught can. Well, this beer is drinkable, but too expensive for the lack of alcohol, since you can drink like a hundred. Nice malty flavor, creamy consistancy, but lacks body.

Botella 330 Cl. Es una tŪpica cerveza roja. Cerveza bastante fŠcil de beber por su sabor tirando a dulce. Color Šmbar rojido

Kavu (4101) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 26, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 25, 2008 Pours amberish brown with beautiful and thick foamy top. The flavors are mild, but I liked what I tasted. It’s a bit sweet but not overly so. Very easy to drink, maybe even too easy.
