3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(bottle, 33cl) Clear, reddish copper colour with a big and tanned foamy head. Toasty malty and nutty aroma with notes of caramel, a tinge of molasses and a subtle berry-fruity touch. Bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied with a pleasantly calm and well-matured carbonation. Solid roast-malty taste with loads of caramel/burnt sugar, dark chocolate and mocha with a drying hops character in the backyard; dry-ish, mildly sweet roasty and bitter hoppy finish with subtle fruity notes. Good. 03.IX.12

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.33 bottle. Clear, red color and a small, off-white head. Sweet, malty aroma - heavy on caramel with fruity hints. Taste is a bit more complex with bready, nutty, and buttery notes although caramel still predominates. Light to medium body, slick texture, and soft carbonation. Finish is also very malty yet it presents a more nuanced form of caramel couple with perfume, nuts, and some bitter tones. Overall the beer is alright, just barely above mediocre but then again one cannot expect miracles from a simple style of this sort.

0,3l Flasche. Rötlich-Bernsteinfarbenes Bier mit heftiger Schaumkrone. Angenehmer Geruch nach Malz. Geschmack nach Röstmalzen, leicht süßlich und im Abgang Hopfenbitter. Mir schmecht es!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cooles Bier in ziemlich roter Färbung. Mit 5,2 etwas mehr Alkohol als üblich. Sehr würzig, mit (leider) teilweise süßlichen Noten. Optik perfekt mit pur weissem Schaum.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0,33 l bottle. Typical simple good looking red brown label art design. Pours evenso light redbrown in the glass, nice CO2 pearls, light tanned short living head. The nose gets malty and low fruity nuances. Roasted malty in the beginning, later more a light herb with fruity sourness and caramell. (7. Sept.2012)

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice English fruit-malt taste w great balance and a nice lean of hop buttering. Hint chico, hint lemon, palate is not cloying making for a soft but very respectable beer, I could session this.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at the brewpub. Clear dark copper shade, light brown head. Caramel aroma. Taste has plenty more caramel and is also quite bready. The other thing going on is a spicy anise-like flavour. Maybe not to everyone’s taste, but I definitely appreciated it.
