@ Mikkeller Stockholm 14-9-20: ganska ordinär doft och smak. Lite lätt humlig med tydliga malttoner. Ok. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!

ogivlado (5721) - Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 18, 2014
Canned 355ml. -from Svijet Piva Zagreb. Clear amber coloured, small to medium sized off-white head, hops and caramel in the nose. Pretty dry hoppy fruity and light caramel taste with pretty strong bitterness in the finish. There’s some sweet side here but overall bitterness rule here.

Pours dark orange with a smooth head. Aroma of caramely malts, pine, toffee, grassy hops and citrus. Taste is crisp, malty and caramely with notes of pine, grass and toffee. Finish is bitter, caramely and malty with some pine and grass. Quite malty and sweetish IPA.

Aroma is heavy and sweet with resiny malt, caramel and gluey tones. Flavour has caramel, some toffee, alcohol and glue. Also resiny tones. Feels a bit watery on some sips. An IPA on the malty and caramel side.

brnandersen (1910) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 16, 2014
Sample from 355 ml. can. Clear, amber-golden with a medium sized lightly tanned head. Fruity aroma with citrus, caramel malts, peach and grapefruit. Taste is bitter. Medium body with a creamy texture and soft carbonation. Finishes dry and bitter with fruits, caramel malts and a toasted note. Nice one.

BOLTZ7555 (2799) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - SEP 14, 2014
If this is the ’Better Half’, I don’t want to meet it’s lesser cousin. Malty, rich and sweet for the style with a bit of pine, moderate citrus bitterness, and some spice. Just nothing special.

CloakedDagger (597) - - SEP 13, 2014
Can 35,5 cl. Pours an almost clear amber with a rich, lacing off-white head with good retention. Caramel aroma blending in with some oxidized hops. Medium body, heavy on the crystal malts almost getting a little sticky yet with quite some late bitterness. Lacks some fresh aroma hops. 130914
