hawthorne00 (2887) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 16, 2010
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.

Garrold (2707) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2015
Bottle. Dram Shop, Sheffield. Clear, dark copper colour. Thick, foamy, lasting, cream coloured head. Aroma of sweet nuts. Dark honey. Light, metallic hop. Taste is honey sweet. Develops a bitterness, that lingers. Palate is airy, and massaging. The bitterness takes over any sweetness, toward the end. Liked this.

Russo (1902) - Hemhofen, Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - AUG 5, 2010
Bottled. Nice Amber coloration that start with a huge beige head and keep perfect lace until end it. Aroma is sweety, notes of toasted malt, caramel, and some hop. Flavor is a balanced bitterness and sweetness more sweet than bitter, but notes of alcohol on it. Mouthfeel has a medium duration but a good beer after a stressing day! I love it.

Gregus (525) - Kraków, POLAND - MAY 18, 2014
Butelka. Barwa bursztynowa, piana bujna ale szybko opada. W aromacie jest słodowo, karmelowo rześko. Smak przede wszystkim słodowy z delikatnymi nutami karmelowymi. Goryczka na średnim poziomie, długa. Piwo jest rześkie i dobrze pijalne.

Quack-Duck (8701) - Down South, GERMANY - MAR 9, 2008
bottle. Clear amber/brown colour, large head. Malty noise. Full-bodied, malty and caramelly flavours dominate. Not sweet, but pleasantly hoppy as well, with a good portion of Saaz hops. Slightly fruity as well. Very good.

darkseduction (659) - Zweibrücken, GERMANY - FEB 8, 2014
Flasche 50cl. Tschechisches Halbdunkles mit interessanten Malztönen. Es fehlt die sonst auftauchende fruchtig-weinige Note. Sehr gut.

flying_pig (1166) - SCOTLAND - MAY 7, 2014
500ml Bottle from Hyberniska Mini-Market, Prague, Czech Repbulic (45Czk):
Sweet malts & caramel with faint alcohol & some brown sugar. There is some bread & toasted malts coming through & the beer is about medium strength with a good balance. Clear, caramel amber with a thin & patchy white head that is slightly soapy. Sweet malts feature heavily, along with some caramel and brown sugar. A few subtle hops & some spice feature too along with a slightly fruity base to it & some marzipan from the middle on. Light-medium & smooth, sweet too with some alcohol being present although the taste is quite clean and wet throughout.

Sweet & malty, almost like a doppelbock in some respects. While the beer wasn’t exactly anything special, it is still a drink that I wouldn’t mind having again.
