suprchunk (2499) - Crestview, Florida, USA - DEC 31, 2012
Orange toffee color. Small off-white head. Little lacing. Nice mixture of hops and malt. Orange marmalade. Taste is a creamy caramel and malt. Some dark fruits. Some sweetness but balanced well with a slight bitterness. Good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MarkoNm (1088) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - APR 15, 2015
Pours a clear dark amber almost coppery color, topped with a medium non-lasting tan head. Mild malty aroma, some fruity and acaramel notes later on. A bit of bubblegum aroma initially. Taste starts sweet and slightly watery, followed by a very mild bitterness and a bit soapy feel. Easily drinkable, although could do with a bit more taste.

A surprising little gem, very clean with a spicy toffee taste. The beer itself is a clear ruby colour

sarauckelman (235) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2015
Clear ruby amber with minimal head. Rich full aroma, best described as of "beer", with hints of caramel and bread. Quite dry in contrast to the richness and sweetness of the aroma, with a peppery finish. Will be great with pizza.

uckelman (347) - Durham, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2015
Pours reddish brown, clear, not much head. Aroma is sweet, banana, bubblegum. Flavor is _not_ sweet, however. Grainy, medium body. Rather dry finish.

serialver (25) - Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2015
Dark red with small head. Chocolate and most maple aroma. Sweet taste with chocolate tones and dark sugar. Big boring overall
