Panzerfaust (754) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - JUN 26, 2007
Pours a clear dark red/amber color with a big, white, frothy and lingering head. Good lacing. Aroma is malty, fresh with notes of butter, milk, cereal grains, flowers and herbs. Clear hints of grass, red apples, grapes, pineapple and almonds. Flavor is bitter, balanced between herbs and fruits. Moderate tartness in the end to compliment the bitterness. Notes of apples, nuts, grass and slight citric touches. Body is light, refreshing. Medium but sharp carbonation. Finish is pretty nice, bold, long and intense and it’s probably the beer’s best feature. Texture is a little thicker than water. A quaffable and well done Ale from a huge macro.

Diablo9845 (62) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 10, 2007
I really enjoyed this beer. Very slow drinking and beautiful appearance. Creamy, large head and caramel taste. Slightly bitter but it suited it nicely. Again, very nice ale that a truely was imersed in at the pub.

tykjen (182) - Florø, NORWAY - JUN 10, 2007
Very disappointing. Looks very nice, but tastes thin and flat, almost like cardboard. Has some malt and caramel notes, but with very low fruitiness. Sourish aroma, reminds me of baby’s wommit. Low bitterness. A bad beer with good marketing. To be avoided.

littlecarp (135) - Redding, California, USA - JUN 3, 2007
Draft: Pours dark, amber color with a foamy white head. Lightly hoppy bitter aroma. Flavor is light bitter, but finishes with a great roundy malt flavor. Finish could be a bit stronger, but it’s not bad.

TaxiDriver (1672) - Stadland, GERMANY - JUN 2, 2007
Bottle. Roasted aroma, light sweetness, a little bit burned. Red body, the head is fair lacing, small size and fully dimishing. A moderate sweetness with a short duration. The carbonation is lively, the texture is rather oily, medium body on the palate. Overall not a bad one, but the Murphys Red Ale is better

nicolascage (116) - Copenhagen (Virum), DENMARK - MAY 27, 2007
Canned with nitrogen, nice smooth, fine balance, soft malty character, a little English and a lot Irish.

ChrisTurner (207) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 24, 2007
Can (with a widget) -- Dark amber with no visible carbonation. Beautiful dense nitrohead that lasts forever and leaves lashings of lacng. Surprisingly gentle aroma of malt with a suggestion of something more earthy. Watery yet creamy mouthfeel (something to do with the widget, perhaps). More gentle maltiness in the flavour with a touch of roastedess. Very little bitterness anywhere, which makes it a tad boring but friendly.
