Lagerboy (1535) - British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 19, 2014
500 ml bottle. Mostly clear darker red copper, fading tan foamy head. Aroma of sweet caramel, malt and dark fruit. Medium dark roast, toffee/caramel malt taste, riper dark fruitiness, quite floral. Softer than average carbonation, medium bodied, moderately hopped. Very robust for 4%, almost vinous near the end. Tasty! NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

EyeAmBaldman (375) - Illinois, USA - DEC 15, 2013
Found this in a craft beer store in Gatlinburg, TN. Was just looking for a Scottish beer. Pours ruby red. Aroma was fruity and floral. Notes of caramel in the taste. Was not too overbearing in bitterness. Fell in love with this beer and started me on the path for the ultimate beer taste. This beer is so smooth. I’m sure if I ever get an chance to sample it again I will be disappointed.

0,5 l bottle with a new nobel label art. Pours in a dark amber, nice foamy light tanned head. Intensive fresh and fruity hop on the nose. Starts fresh hopy with a noticeably bitterness. Dark malt in the background. Like it!
