Decent amber ale. Color is very appealing, and taste is surprisingly good, although not complex. Good balance of hops and other flavors such that its not overly bitter or powered by any one flavor. Palate is average- Very drinkable
But not world class in my book. Overall a good ale, that is easy to drink.

Amber colored beer, yellowish foam. Smells sweet, caramel. Taste is also mostly caramel, quite sweet but with a noticable bitter finish. Good carbonation, alcohol is not too prominent. I’m quite fond of this one.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle courtesy of my sister-in-law and man in Northern Ireland. Deep amber beer, served in the traditional Kwak glass. Sweet taste - very drinkable, but very strong.
Would go well with crisps or nuts.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Juustukuningad in Tallinn (€ 3). BB 11.2015. Light creamy head on top of a near clear coppery amber colour body. Head was massive but dropped fast. The aroma is spicy and sugary sweet, notes of bubblegum, caramel, malts, alcohol... Taste very caramelly, much too sweet for my liking, with a considerable zing of alcohol. Body medium, carbonation seems flat at first but shows some prickliness when swallowing. Perhaps served it too warm this time - can’t really get much enjoyment out of this. Should rate it again when served cooler and perhaps from its own glass.

an excellent beer. reddish clear amber color and a full bodied aroma of buttery melded malts. The flavor has a good kick to it with a sweet malt flavor and a slight fizz mouth feel.
