0,5 flaske delt med Holmens importavdeling p vr siste aktivititetsdag i 2014: mrk brunlig rubin med gardinskum. Mrk aroma og smak med kaffe, br, sjokolade og furunl. Brown ale er som oftest kjedelig, men denne synes jeg er godt balansert, har lett men atletisk kropp oger meget drikkbar.

UPDATED: DEC 19, 2014 Tap at Le Senk. Aroma pine, caramel, lots of spices, indistiguishable. Clear amber to brown colour. Taste is sweetish, caramel, also lots of piney earthy hoppiness, almost to the point of sourness. Gets better with less CO2, and higher temperature. Good, but difficult.

jinroh (430) - ESTONIA - DEC 29, 2013
300 ml bottle brought from Prague. Pours light brown with a bubbly head that goes away fast. Aroma has caramel, milk chocolate, a bit of herbs and berries - cherry? Taste proves that we are dealing with an ale here. Softly hoppy, some sweet malty base and some spices on top of that. Fruit sweetness. Aftertaste is creamy with some bitter hops. Good easily drinkable brown ale, perfect for Christmas.

Draught at Nota Bene, Prague. Clear deep amber/mahogany beer with a nice lasting beige/brownish head. Fruity hop aroma, roasted, caramel, biscuits, pine apples, some citrus and mango. Fruity citrus and pine apple flavor, caramel, chocolate, biscuits, licorice, peach, roasted notes. Fruity finish, lots of tropical fruits. Nice beer but maybe not completely true to the style.
