ElDesmadre (2893) - Mikołów, POLAND - NOV 19, 2012
Bottle. Light brown with a small head. Aroma is mainly caramel, some apple notes, hints of nuts, raisins and hops. Tastes like a brown ale with prominent apple notes. Dry and refreshing, with a light body, low carbonation and a low to medium bitterness. I’d have to lie to write I didn’t like this. Really nice, sessionable summer beer.

Bif (1888) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 2, 2012
On tap at hotel in Auckland. Served a deep golden color with a nice head that fades to some lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, some caramel and a bit of dark fruit. Taste of roasted malt with caramel sweetness and dark fruit. Mild bitterness and a clean finish. medium body, quite smooth with a slightly grainy texture. Enjoyable beer but nothing fancy.

Pours dark amber with light head that disappeared pretty quickly. Sweet and light aroma. Taste is fairly soft - lightly sweet and hoppy.

jdpeebs (686) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 15, 2012
330ml bottle. Solid malty characteristic tending to the dark crystal malt range, with notes of caramel. Good body, complex ale fruitiness and a significant hoppy aftertaste.

kappldav123 (5810) - GERMANY - JUL 14, 2012
Bottle looks really good. Beer in the glass zippy, nice head. Starts mild-malty, not too roasty, fine dry notes. Light hints of caramel. Finish still mild but not washy, well balanced malty. Nice!

EithCubes (5426) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 9, 2012
Bottle by AUG-12. Nose of sweet and lightly fruity caramel with lighter dark/burned notes. Body a nice, gradient amber with an ephemeral tan head. Taste is lightly sweet, caramel/toffee with light earth and light bitterness, lightish body a little fizzy. Monteiths seems to produce its share of easy-drinkers.

Bottle. Presents copper brown with a small white head. Caramel malts on the nose with hints of dark fruits. Tastes medium sweet with a soft hop presence. Grainy malty texture and lightish body. A decent amber ale.

faint nose of hops. Sweet carmel taste, though short lived. Lots of watery gaps. not real interesting or exciting. One was enough
