Palme (3240) - Bergen, - OCT 2, 2012
0.4l can @ Bergen Airport. Clear caramel-brown with a really creamy off-white head. Smells light sweet, mild ashy, some faint fruity tones. Not horrible, but not fantastic. It’s soft on the carbonation and it has a mild oily mouthfeel. Light sweet caramel flavors also, some faint cigarette tones with a soft bitter and quite smooth finish and a flour-ish both semi dry aftertaste and really watery and thin. Easy drinking, but flavor wise this has never been a favorite of mine. Nor this time. 05.08.2012

Pint at airport. Nitro head on amber liquid. Slight yeast nose. Flavour is non existent. Slight taste that you get when you drink whiskey. Its a bit shit.

androman (323) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - JUL 26, 2014
Sample from 33cl bottle @ home from Rewe, Germany. Clear amber color, medium fizzy white mostly diminishing no lacing head. Aroma caramel, red fruits, tea, leaves, slightly roaste malt, light cereal, quite watery. Taste medium sweetness, lightly bitter. Light body, thin texture, lively carbonation, medium lasting sweetish finish. Easy to drink, bit too sweet for me, too watery, but not that bad.

rockana (217) - Zadar/Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 25, 2014
Pours clear amber with minimal tan head. Watery. Light body. Aroma of some caramel. Maybe it’s because of the can, but it is terrible and disappointing.

floydian1 (905) - FNQ, Australia, - JUL 23, 2014
440ml can containing a nitrogenated widget. Eventually settles to a clear amber beer with a creamy off white head. Light nose of toasty caramel malts with traces of floral hops. Palate is flat and light bodied but with a creamy texture. Bland light malt flavours and a low bitterness. Disappointing.

GBZ59 (1094) - BARCELONA (Catalonia), SPAIN - JUL 20, 2014
Botella de 330ml. Vaso de Pinta. Malta caramel y matices de Madera fresco al destapar. Brota con color ámbar anaranjado y apariencia algo velada. Espuma blanca y tupida aunque se disipa con rapidez. El perfil aromático se completa con notas de hierba y gentil naranja. Entrada caramelizada que precede a un agradable amargor herbáceo. Cuerpo ligero-medio y carbonatación moderada a moderadamente alta. Textura densa y paladar reseco. El caramelo y el tímido cítrico regresan en el intermedio y permanece en el dulce y levemente amargo final con recuerdos de naranja. Prolongado retrogusto de madera. Suave y de trago fácil con sensaciones resecas y refrescantes. 330ml bottle. Pint glass. Caramel & hints of fresh wood as cap is removed. Pours orangish amber in color with chill hazy appearance. White froth is close but quickly diminished. Aroma profile is completed by grassy & gentle orange notes. Caramelized upfront followed by kind herbal bitterness. Light to medium body. Moderate to moderately high carbonation. Dense texture & dried palate. Caramel & shy citric come back in the middle & linger into a sweet/slightly bitter finish with orange memories. Long woody aftertaste. Smooth & easy drinkability, dried & refreshing sensations.

33cl bottle. Pale brown ale with big creamy head what disappear quite fast. Sweet malt and just a little hop dominated. Maybe nut you can feel. Good ale but it is very expesive for the not very big quality.
