MichaelAwesome (5039) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - SEP 9, 2014
Bottle shared with McTapps. Starting off with some hops and citrus fruits. But after that it develops some strange toffee and caramel moments leading this one to be a bit tough to drink. Did not like that too much.

@ Sergioís / Louisville KY --- Clear dark amber, thin head cover, splotches of lace. Taste is fizzy malt with a touch of citrus. Light bittering enters deep in the palate, yielding to caramel malt in the finish. Quite a lot going on for 4.5abv. Does what it means to do.

Amber colour with a thin off white head. Aroma is toasted wood chippings, little fruit. Flavour is quite malty, sweetness kicks in at the end. Not really my thing but quite enjoyed it.

Cantabrian (905) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - APR 4, 2014
Iíve never been a fan of the guy. The beer made no impression of me either. Overly sweet, syrup, honey, on top of an ordinary bitter. I had it a while ago and thought Iíd rated it alredy. Screw him.

Aroma - aroma is really nice, like a good piece of bread. It smells soft and just good. Appearance - is a nice copper color, with a white head that stick around and then falls. Taste - the taste is wonderful. Itís listed as a bitter, but it certainly isnít that. I docked it a point, or itíd be a 9. Itís a wonderfully malty brew, it tastes of a perfectly malted barley, perhaps some oats. Feel - the body is medium, creamy, soft, and just an abrupt ending. Yet, itís goodness survives. This is one of the best beers Iíve had, I am surprised by itís low rating, perhaps it is because of itís listed style. Sometimes a beer is just better than that. I really canít say enough good things.
