I like the ruby red pour with a huge tan head that leaves a lot of lacing. The aroma is a little fain almost metallicy. The mouthfeel is light and creamy and the beer is pretty well balanced. There isn’t really a wow factor in flavor however. There’s a hint of bitterness and a touch of maltiness but not much else. Decent.

Lubiere (9428) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 16, 2013
2007: A reddish brown ale with a thin mocha head. In aroma, a light earthy sweet malt with watery sugar. In mouth, a sweet grassy malt with nutty notes, light coffee, not bad, like a nut brown...6 years old but not oxidized. Tasted with GRM March 1 2013.

Songle bottle, Total Wine. Slightly hazy brown pour with a very slight ruby tinge and a big frothy head. Somewhat funky aroma - fruit and caramel notes but a little musty. Taste is pretty much malts and baking spices, a little grapefruit bitterness at the end. Medium body, silky mouthfeel. Highly sessionable.

chrissor (6) - NORWAY - FEB 22, 2013 does not count
Bottle from Systembolaget. Clear dark copper color with a mediumish head. Aroma with caramel malts and some hoppiness... pine, woody?. Taste of citrus peals.... grapefriuts, crispy and slightly dry. Some residual sweetnes from the malts. All together a very nice ale.

bergstaden (1007) - Røros, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2013
Amber with an off white head - good malt aroma with some caramel and there is some hop there as well - good malt body with some caramel, then the hop takes over with a nice bitterness that leads to a dry end - nice lingering hop dry finish - this was good

Paid $2.99 for a 500ml @ Nikki’s Liquors, Providence, R.I. Lager glass has a dark brown with some pretty ruby highlights. Really strange nose of leather, roasted malt and spices. English malt and or hops are in this for sure. Taste is more on the malty side with light sweetness, light bitterness and spicy notes. Secondary Earthy herbal notes. Hints of toffee. Light notes of fruit with that strange leather coming through in the taste as well. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Overall, an very interesting English Winter Ale.

mansquito (3106) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JAN 22, 2013
New Beer Distributors, NY 50cl ($5.95): Pours murky brown with a beige head. Aroma is caramel malt, a bit of hops and some yeast. Taste is a little sweet, with some earth. Mostly very malty. Kind of like a brown ale mixed with an ESB in my opinion. Hardly a strong ale though. Nice though.

ogivlado (5402) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 16, 2013
Bottled 500ml. -Clear amber coloured, medium sized off-white head, pleasant caramel hoppy/fruity nose. Sweet malty, pleasant fruity hoppy and mild caramel taste with notes of grapefruit in the finish. Pleasant but maybe a bit to intensive hoppy notes.

dinkle50 (900) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Super carbonated. Deep red pour with a thick off white head. Aroma is very light. Hint of grain. Taste is full of barley. Aftertaste is slightly bitter. This beer is so carbonated that the taste is little lost.
