bhensonb (10343) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 17, 2008
750 ml bottle (Dec 07) from Monument in Concord, CA. Spicey, roasted caramel aroma. Dark amber color that didn’t last long, and neither did the white head. Medium body with creamy carbonation. Flavor is caramel, almost hinting of cola. Clean, crisp and refreshing. Rather mild, but there is enough bitter to balance the malt. A very calm and relaxing experience. Good stuff.

Koelschtrinker (9995) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 11, 2011
Brotiger, leicht malziger Geruch, zudem geringfügig alkoholisch-süß. Brotig-alkoholischer Antrunk, erst süß, dann bitter bis würzig. Der Mittelteil erscheint wie der Nachgeschmack sehr aromenreich, würziger werdend und komplex. Malzig-würziger Abgang. Test vom 21.8.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 11,12,11,14,13,12 - 12,10

Maria (9963) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAR 1, 2007
33 cl. bottle. Almost mahogany with a weak head. The aroma is malty, very malty and sweet. The flavour is sweet, very sweet and it has notes of a lot of malt and nuts. IMO this is to sticky sweet, partly because it seems it doesn’t have anything else to offer, so I miss a bit of complexity and bitterness.

imdownthepub (9623) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2012
Bottled, 330ml from Carrefour, Coquelles, France. Amber with white head. This proved to be quite a sweetish, caramel beer, toffee but with a yeasty spiciness and light lemonade note. Pleasant and easy drinking, quite decent.
