Beezzting (26) - SOUTH AFRICA - FEB 3, 2015
Amber brown with moussy white head which dissipates quickly. Minimal lacing. High carbonation with medium-light body. Moderate estery aroma reminiscent of plums, figs and raisins, low to no spiciness. Malty sweet with slight alcoholic warmth ending medium-dry.

Graduación: 9º Aspecto: De color beige cobrizo y oscuro. La espuma que forma en el vaso es muy densa y adherente. Aroma: Entre el conjunto de olores percibidos destacan los aromas a cereales, frutales, (plátano, o piña?) y a malta tostada. Sabor: De burbuja fina, en boca resulta bien estructurada, aunque resulta algo densa y maltosa. Al comienzo, la entrada es sutilmente dulce, aunque pronto se descubre su sequedad con un final amargo y regusto a caramelo. Cuando la cerveza gana en temperatura, el alcohol muy bien integrado en un comienzo, empieza a hacer acto de presencia, y puede resultar un tanto cabezona, por lo que recomiendo tomarla con algo de comer. Una tabla de quesos y ahumados, por ejemplo. De final largo y prolongado, para mi gusto puede resultar empalagosa y alicorada.

Kampfar (8) - Münster, GERMANY - JAN 30, 2015 does not count
[From tap served in special glassware] Delicious strong amber coloured beer. Rich mouthtaste with a medium after taste. Strong malty taste with some hops making it a tasteful beer.

PapaSkeetSkeet (997) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - JAN 24, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 25, 2015 Amber (bright) with a dusting of tan head that fades quickly to a thin ring, then nothing. Aroma is spicy/phenolic yeast notes coupled with a light grain sweetness (like malt extract). Some fusel alcohol with a light touch of raisin. Flavor is bready, semi-sweet, touch of higher alcohol and baker’s yeast. Light-to-medium-light oily-syrupy body, soft-light carbonation, little burn. A nice concept, but lacking good head retention and has way too much fusel alcohol to be enjoyable.

kustie (298) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 24, 2015
Bottle. Amber almost red color with small silky head. Aroma has vanilla, yeast, tropical fruits and caramel. Taste is medium sweet with some bitter and salty elements. Flavors of caramel, nuts, yeast and some tropical fruits. Straightforward but nice one.

MarkoNm (1109) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JAN 24, 2015
Pours a clear amber color, topped with a frothy white head. Malty aroma with some nice notes of caramel. Not much there, mild a bit yeasty, but pleasant. Sweet and malty, some caramel with ok bitterness. A touch of alcohol but not too unpleasant. Not bad for not favourite style.

Hamirubi (173) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - JAN 21, 2015
Een tegenvaller qua aroma - doet slechts denken aan kelder. Met een amber, oranje aroma, helder-wazige gladheid en jammer genoeg minimaal wit schuim. De smaak valt beter mee: medium zoet, licht bitter. Het palet: lichte body, dunne textuur, gemiddeld koolzuur, abrupte afdronk.

Florya (625) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 20, 2015
How: Bottle Appearance: Bronze, medium white head. Aroma: dried fruits, banana, light citrus, floral. Palate: Medium body, average carbonation.
