MBison (548) - Southern Highlands, - JUL 24, 2009
Nitro-can (440ml). Poured copper coloured with a thick creamy, off-white head which lasted superbly. A light aroma with notes of sweet bread, caramel malts, biscuits and red berries. Flavor was a very light earthy bitterness with caramel malts, gooseberries and some nuts. Light bodied with virtually no carbonation, a watery texture, creamy mouthfeel and a short lived, clean finish.

Small bottle from Cloud 9 Shop, Vientiane, Laos. Lovely pour; reddish hue with a nice foamy head to start. Aroma of malt and hay. More watery than I had imagined. Taste of malts, earthy hops. Medium carbonation. A bit thin and watery for the style. A good session beer perhaps.

AntonyWilson (98) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - JUL 27, 2016
500ml can: Pours a deep amber with thick, creamy tan head that persists. Lacing. Aroma of bread, some dried fruit. Tastes toasty with slight malt. Low bitterness and medium to low body. Slight astringency, easy drinking and is definitely a session ale.

Tjomleif (86) - NORWAY - JUL 22, 2016
Not much needs to be said, creamy mouthfeel, quaffable. Quite watery, and lacks substantial taste or aroma. Best draft.

Amber color, creamy head. Butterscotch and caramel aromas. Butterscotch taste, creamy, toffee, vanilla, some fruits. Sweet finish.

aleigator (735) - GERMANY - JUL 2, 2016
Pours a glowing, dark red color with the most beautiful head to it, which appears utmost stable yet fluffy at the same time. Smells of toffee and earth coated leaves among dried wild berries. Has a coppery undertone together with some orange zest, as well as a rock sugar sweetness. Drinks very refreshing, with a lively, very light body, which turns out to be borderline watery at the back end with sweet malts defining the taste. Tastes of old noble hops among earth, rye and a toffee glimps, which turns more profound once the beers fizzy carbonation is in full swing. This leaves back only sweet malts, a superfaint dryness and a watery ending. Builds up a pleasant balance at first, which vanishes in favor of the malts, producing a monotonous, thin finish.

Ritzn (315) - Bavaria, GERMANY - JUN 30, 2016
Clear brown with quickly vanished white head. Aroma is bubblegum, sweet apple, smoke, some red wine stuff. Taste is mostly apple sourness, and esthery bitterness. Creamy mouthfeel, medium body, easy to drink. Ok but not great.

huineman (570) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 23, 2016
Pint on tap. Pours clean ruby-copper, tan head. Aroma is redcurrant, cherry, bisquit. Taste is soft, lo-carb, slightly sweet. Los-lingering finish with little bitterness.

UneXpecT (8) - Montreal, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 17, 2016 does not count
473 ml can. Pouring this one fast and then drinking into the foam is a always a classic. Aroma is of caramel and sweet. Alcohol is very thin. Carbonation disappear quickly and remains faint. Body is light with a thin oily texture. Has a pale amber body.

rostetti (129) - Oulu, FINLAND - JUN 11, 2016
Can from market. Very nice looking beer with big creamy white head. Aroma and taste both seem to be a little lost. It is very smooth but too watery.

pkbites (858) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 7, 2016
Lovely dark amber/reddish pour. Creamy smooth head. Almost no aroma whatsoever. This beautiful looking beer is very disappointing taste wise. Hoppy water is about all I can describe. Looks much better than it is. On tap @ The Brazen Head, Dublin, Ireland.
