oh6gdx (20618) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 18, 2009
Bottled (thanks to the craziest bartender in the world). Golden amber colour with mediumsized fluffy/foamy head that leaves some nice lace. Aroma is caramel malts, some mild toffee as well as mild oak wooden notes. Flavour is sweet caramel malts, some fudge, mild grass and even some kind of stingy sweetness, not exactly alcohol, but something kind of close to that kind of sweetness. Smooth palate.

GNome (41) - Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2008
Bottle, pleasantly surprised by the huge hop aroma on pouring the bottle, even more surprised by the huge hop taste - that became quite sickly about half way through the beer. Guess ’hop oils’ or whatever have been used and unfortunately in too high a dose for me.
