I have had a bottle of this in fridge for awhile, dodging it actually, but was pleasantly surprised that it drank so easily. Nothing fancy but smooth drinking with light toffee notes.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Draught at Soldaten Svejk in Stockholm. It poured a clear dark golden liquid with a medium sized light brown foam that left a nice lacing. Weak smell of caramell and amalt. Smooth mouthfeel. Taste of malt, burned toast and lots of caramell. I didn’t enjoy this beer very much, way to much caramell and it had another taste that didn’t fit me.

Dunkles Bernstein, feinporiger Schaum mittlerer Dauer. Karamell, Fudge, Toast, leicht röstig. Halbtrockener, vollmundiger Antrunk. Die Würze des Malzes ist auffallend und lecker zugleich, auch buttrige Aromen sind zu schmecken. Bittert schön lang nach. Gutes Bernstein/Halbdunkles!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0,5 l bottle as a gift.
Clear amber-reddish colored beer with a small but stable, creamy off white-tan head. Sweet malt and toasted caramel in the aroma with a moderated herbal hop perfume. Medium bodied beer with caramel and malt, toasted tastes, sourish yeasts and a dry, herbal hop in the finish. Not a bad but not a very exciting one...

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: SEP 9, 2010 500ml bottle. Amber, light beige head. Aroma of rich caramel, a bit of toast, touches of earth and grass. Taste has caramel, but it’s not all that sweet. Hazelnuts and some dry sherry. A little sourness. Quite pronounced bitterness at the finish features some metal. Not really my sort of thing but rather good. [3.1]
Trying again, this time on purpose. I bought the one above expecting a pilsener (ignorant as I am). Then I bought another by accident, enjoyed it rather more and was surprised to later look at my rating (the description’s OK, the score’s not). This is lovely: a balanced, tasty and gluggable drop.
