k0mpsa (1158) - Järvenpää, - NOV 16, 2012
0,5l can. Clear brown color, nice smooth white head. Normal malty aroma. Quite smooth taste and mouthfeel. Not special flavors, malty. But smooth taste gave some points.

ljthiessen (394) - 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 (258) - 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 (3681) - 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.

16erBlech (53) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - SEP 16, 2014
0,33l bottle. Hmmm, not bad at all, but quite thin and watery. Somehow I remembered this beer as a better one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

33cl bottle in Bali. Aroma of sweet malt. Nice red brown colour with a cream coloured head. Medium carbonation. Slightly sweet taste of malt and caramel, and bitter in the aftertaste.

Xavalias (156) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 13, 2014
On tap from Victoria Pub, Copenhagen, DK. Brown with a thick and fully persistent creamy, off-white, grey-ish head. The aroma is yeasty, fruity, caramel, and malts. The taste is medium sweet, subdued bitterness. The palate is creamy, very smooth, like oak-aged. Nice and very drinkable.

Desverger (2121) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2014
Tap@Dubliner, Copenhagen - dark reddish pour with a creamy off-white head. Aroma and taste is light toasty bready malty, vague caramel, some very light hoppy notes way in the background. Not for me.
