Oakrock (129) - Helsinki, - MAR 22, 2013
Quite nice beer as a "mass product". Straight -good palate and great bitterness. Roasted apple and caramel. A little too much of "roast" taste which is essence, I’m afraid.

kamwitsta (527) - POLAND - MAY 13, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 13, 2016 Aroma: some honey, some malts, a little caramel, later also a bit of alcohol; sounds nice but it has this characteristic Euro-lager note in the background spoiling the fun. Appearance: caramel; clear; head largish, fairly stable. Taste: quite sweet, a bit too much in fact, a little sour, a bit bitter. Palate: body medium; carbonation average; mouth feel spicy and a bit corrosive; finish spicy, pretty sweet, a bit astringent. Overall: not great but also not too bad; better than average, and certainly better than your average Heineken.

I bought this beer at the G20 in Paris. To be honest, this one is better than the blonde. At the nose, we can smell the caramel. The body is brown and white and thin foam. The taste is sweet but it is also a bit smocked and bitter, well balanced. The final note is watery but it is ok.

Can at home, brown red beer medium head. Aroma is sweet, caramel, malt. Taste is the same, not that bad.

ozzatoadisback (40) - ITALY - APR 15, 2016
Deep red/brown colour, yellowish head is thin and vanishes quickly. Aroma has a vague sirupy sweetness with some background notes of chocolate and coffee. Taste is sweet from start to finish. Caramel and not much else that i can pick upfront, a hint of coffee in the finish, but still sweet. Still feels decent due to a silky, smooth mouthfeel. Body is medium, carbonation is very gentle. Not that it’s bad, it’s just plain boring and not worthy

tomer (2733) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - FEB 16, 2016
At a tasting thanks, very little head, very deep red to brown color, woody aroma, hint of fruit and light cakey malt, fruity cakey malty flavor. Drinkable but a little to sweet and not really exciting.
