OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 14, 2013
A - Light amber body, super clear. Two fingers of foamy white head. S - Grain, earthy husk, slight sourness, honey, old dough. T - Sweet grain at the start but quickly turns to an herbal, minty perfumey, earthy bitterness. Finishes with a tangy lemon sweetness. M - Medium to full body, creamy carbonation. There’s something off-putting in the flavors. Almost like a forced herbal mint. Didn’t come together very well. Serving type: bottle 10-29-2011

floydslip (253) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 28, 2015
Light amber beer with a thin foamy bright white head. Waxy nose of soap, sweet caramel, and musky perfume. Flavor is sweet with caramel, butterscotch, and light honey followed by a cardboard-like bitterness that counterbalances a bit. Some strange flavor combinations are at work here and not all work for me. Decent, I guess, but not something I would seek out.

Meilby (9625) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 25, 2015
Bottle 500ml @ gunnfryd’s hytte
Pours clear deep golden with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, grain, corn and butterscotch. Taste is medium sweet and light to medium bitter with a long malty, grainy, corn and grassy finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

yngwie (15379) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 25, 2015
Bottle. A clear, golden beer with a small, white head. The aroma is rather butterscotchy, with fruityness, grass and pine cones. Some alcohol notes. It’s full-bodied, nicely carbonated and rather dry. Rather bitter on the palate, far from as butterscotchy as the aroma, with grainy pale malts and piney, resiny fruityness. Long bitter finish. Overall, too buttery on the nose and a bit alcoholic, but it’s quite decent anyway. 150725

Bottle. Golden, medium white head. Medium carbonation. Aroma malt, bananas. Taste predominantly sweet, malty, the higher abv shows. Quite ok. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mariuszek (534) - Gdynia, POLAND - JUN 7, 2015
Clear, golden orange, thin head. Aroma malty and cereal. Same in taste with slightly bitter and alcohol finish. Boring as helles bock but at least not empty and boozy.

Smells awful, some kind of metallic/chemical odor. Taste is better, but not great, strong sweetness, some grass, alcohol.

Fľaša 0,5 l z 1. nitrianskej pivotéky. Číra, karamelová farba, nižšia, hustá pena. Stredná rezkosť, výrazne horkastá chuť so sladovým pozadím. Horkosť zostáva dlho na jazyku, zaujímavý špeciál.
