Smakte litt for bittert for min smak. Var frisk og lettdrikkelig. Rød øl. Lys men litt mye smak

Koskela (289) - Marysville, California, USA - FEB 7, 2014
Very syrupy smell and a vit of tartness in this mostly clear deep red beer With a small offwhite head. A sweet bitterish taste come with thie beer and also a bit almost tart bitterness throughout. Its a medium body and good carb. Not horrible but not wotyh another buy. The tartness really throws me off

Douberd (2293) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JAN 18, 2014
Nice looking bottle, 33o ml. Into a snifter at home, ABV 4.1% Light gusher but nothing too bad. Pours a bright red beer, very clear body, with one figer of off-white head. Low retention, good enough lacing left on the glass along with foam and bubble islands on the surface. Nice aroma, unexpectedly hoppy, with lots of citrus on it, some tropical fruits as well. Aromas seem to evaporate rather quickly. Taste of light caramel, malts, hops that are trying their best to give some flavour but don’t manage much, just light citrus taste and that is all. Not bad, just not as tasty as I expected from the aromas. Light bitterness on the aftertaste. Medium thin on the body, okay carbonation, light dryness on the palate. Overall okay, nothing spectacular.
