MichaelAwesome (5681) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JAN 2, 2014
Bottle shared with McTapps. Poruing in out that nice looking bottle in an slightly amber colour. Fantastic hoppy note combined with a crispy taste and mild carbo. Big in the hops with a refreshing note making it a bit like a Schluessel Alt. In fact, my first bottled Ale reminding me a fresh draught Alt from the Altstadt in Duesseldorf. Great one.

Marduk (3976) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 18, 2013

thirstyrabbit (1433) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 14, 2013
Small bottle. Bronze/amber body with a medium creamy head. Aroma has nice American hops. Medium body, taste has mild hops with sweet caramel. Finish could do with a longer lingering bitterness, right now the flavours fade too abruptly.

JorgeLee (1430) - Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2015 Keg at the Blue Boar in the Intercontinental in St James. Lovely red colour, thick white head. Some biscuit and caramel malt, hint of citrus and pine hops. Nice enough but a little safe, even at 4% they could let the flavours run a bit stronger here. Re-rate, had this a couple of times since, in bottles and keg. It’s just a bit bland. If you’re going to bring hops all that way you might as well use them!
