onystrom (1316) - Magellan Hunter! - Skanderborg, - JAN 2, 2012
Bottle. Clear dark red color with fine head. Nice aroma. Flavor is dominated by... red clover?... gives a "medical" taste kinda like red ale, but in a very nice way.

Koelschtrinker (9996) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 8, 2011
Lebkuchenartiger Geruch, deutlich nach Nelken, leicht kirschig. Bodenständig malziger Antrunk mit dumpfer Gewürznote, die sich unauffälliger darstellt, als der Geruch vermuten lässt. Wenig nach Nelke, minimal hefig, herb. Röstig mild ausgleitend, die Würzigkeit ist angenehm aber nicht übermäßig ausgeprägt. Zum Ende mild trocken-hopfig. 7/8/7/7/10/7

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2009
A Mes rate: bottle at the ever brilliant Chris O’s Pre GBBF Extravaganza.
Murky amber with a thin white film. Spice and bread, almost doughy. Good fruity notes and obviously lots of clove character. Dry finish. Decent enough just doesn’t really excite me.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2009
Bottle at the legend of Chriso’s pre GBBF09 Tasting. Alround rating: Spicey, cloves are key, quite yeasty and unclean but interesting enough.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2009
At Chriso’s pre GBBF Shindig ’09. Brown with an off white head. Aroma of cough candy (that schoolboys in my day called ’troach’), sweet and spicy, rather nice. Taste on the other hand isn’t so good as the aroma; it’s herby and medicinal. Slight dryness.

johndoughty (3716) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2009
Bottle. Dark and flat. Spicy with some sourness. Unusual and took some time to get used to it.A brave experiment that succeeded.
