Bronse clouty with white head that dosnt last. Fruity candy, honey in the aroma. Malt candy with clear bitterness in the aftertaste, overall the taste is mild. The aftertaste grows. Watery but high in carbon.

from Bier-Bienne - pours a hazy bronze beer with a poor head retention; lemony and light piney hoppiness; a good malt backbone; light sticky and with some malt sweetness; a decent bitterness; quite dry and long fruity and piney hoppy finish - pretty nice

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Aroma of metal, hops, sugar. Copper colour, flat carbon. Yellow head. Tries to be sweet but ends up being metallic. Like the worst red ale there is.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a clear light copper body with a small fizzy white head that faded to a thin ring. The nose is super sweet with lots of crystal malt, some caramel, and a little huskiness. Some light floral hops make it past some of the sweetness. The flavor is too sweet for my tastes in the style, and the low bitterness level doesn’t help to balance things out very well. Finishes with some lingering brown sugar, husky malt, and very light floral hoppiness. Light bodied with fizzy prickly forced carbonation and a lingering huskiness. Meh, not the best example of the style.

One very fine beer, good taste and bitterness, not too much tho, great balance between the sweetness and bitterness thanks to the caramel. Bought in Danish supermarket Bilka for 25 kr/ approx 5 dollars.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
8/16/2011. From bottle. Amber color with a white head. A bit more hoppy than amber ales, but still just a malty backbone with caramel flavors. A bit bland in my opinion.
