Pinball (10773) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 3, 2011
bottle from ølbutikken clear amber, smooth beige head. very nice hoppy , dry malty and caramelly aroma. slightly spicy. flavor is malty, caramelly,dry.. faint spices, the dryness and the hops play very well together, Very tasty dry malty beer. Hops go a long way towards handling the quite sweet malty flavor. alc. well hidden and matches the beer well.

Maria (10136) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 10, 2012
It’s hazy red-brown with a creamy head and the aroma has notes of caramel, malt, light alcohol and fruit. The sweet flavor has notes of roasted malt and loads of caramel, warming alcohol, fruit and the finish is dry with hints of licorice.

330ml bottle (Alko, Helsinki)
I’ll separate Anna’s comments, so that if I get a nastygram from the brewer, he can direct them to her, not me. "Green apple - that’s a brewing flaw, ... ewww that’s not very nice". I get a bit of the green apple, but some sour raisins, some acetone or other solvent. Smooth palate, gentle carbonation. Sweet caramelly body, quite a waft of alcohol goes up the nose. More belgian than English, got that heady sweetness. More apple in the finish. Does cover actual alcohol, but alas has replaced that with something solventy. Ewww, don’t let it warm, it gets worse the warmer it gets. It’s a good job Ares left, otherwise he’d continue his rant about us only drinking bad beer.

Rune (7999) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 17, 2011
It’s still winter with a lot of snow in the extreme north where I live, so a warming winter beer seems just appropriate on a Saturday eve. 330ml bottle, bb.31.09.15, bought at Vinmonopolet Oslo City. Pours a cloudy, apricot coloured body topped by firm amount of beige, foam that stays well and leaves fragile lacing at the glassware. Smell of sweet malts and dried fruits. Plums and raisin in flavour together with earthy malts followed by a ending containing lighter notes of yeasty fruitiness along with alcohol warmth. Well bodied, but aroma and flavour feels rather subdued (Tromsø, 16.04.2011).

Skinnyviking (6976) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 8, 2012
Bottle. Low but lasting creamy dense off-white head. Hazy orange red brown body. Lovely roasted malt choccolate caramel cream sweet aroma. Would have loved to be able to smell the raisins, but so sorry mates I cannot do that. Slightly peppery choccolate caramel hoppy flavor with a high carbonation and a long bitter sweet aftertaste. A hint of alcohol but not too overwhelming.

Scopey (6719) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2011
Bottle at chriso’s Pre-GBBF Shindig ’11. It pours hazy red-brown with a thin off-white head and low carbonation. The nose is brown bread, brown sugar, earth and sweet caramel. The taste is brown sugar, light spice, ginger, clove, earth, caramel and raisin, with sweet caramel finish. Alcohol is well hidden, yet the beer is surprisingly thin. Not bad.
