Xenon (118) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - DEC 25, 2015
A bit malty with a faint bitterness at the finish. Mild licorice aftertaste which I didn’t expect at all. Not very happy but fairly smooth. Wouldn’t seek it out but wouldn’t reject it either

rayaron (1218) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - DEC 25, 2015
Bottle 330ml. Hazy copper with small beige head. Aroma of caramel, a bit soapy with some citrus and peach. The flavor starts with light sweetness followed by citrusy bitterness (lemon, orange), notes of caramel, a bit grassy and piney. Medium-bodied.

zvsn (1458) - ISRAEL - DEC 20, 2015
Bottle. Clear amber with a nice white creamy head. Aroma is mostly malty with some hops in the background, a bit of caramel and bread as well. Moderately sweet, decent malty backbone with flavors of caramel, toasted malt and biscuit, light fruitiness, strong herbal bitterness in the finish, a bit harsh. Medium-bodied, dry enough with proper carbonation. I would prefer more fruity hops but still quite decent.

MrHangover (3766) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - DEC 18, 2015
Bottle, gifted by a friend. Pours a clear amber beer with a nice amount of slightly off white head. Aroma is moderately malty and faintly hoppy, a bit thin overall. Flavour is firm and bitter in the start, softens a bit during the end and aftertaste. Very hoppy, but no real distinguishable characters are identified here. Just nice bitterness, soft carbonation and an easy drinking beer.

eduardovl (1290) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 16, 2015
330ml bottle served in a pint glass. Pours a cloudy dark amber color forming a huge and persistent creamy and soapy beige head. Tons of soapy lacings left in the glass. Strong notes of caramel in the nose. Notes of grapefruit, grass and citrus hops. Slightly sweet upfront taste. Again, strong notes of caramel and caramel malts. Strong notes of grapefruit and citrus hops. Good medium hops bitterness. Persistent. Medium body and carbonation. Great drinkability. Rogue quality. A winner.

Not a bad beer by any means. Just not my favorite beer to drink by its self. If I were to pair this with somthing cool like maybe a salad or even a salmon dish I would say it may pair fairly well. But in my experience, drinking this by its self was not my favorite. A good beer quality wise of course. Good golden/brownish color and a creamy off white head. Hoppy on the finish and a little bitter. Almost like a finer tuned, more well made version of Boston lager.

Zymurgeist2 (1650) - Redwood City, California, USA - NOV 2, 2015
Out of the bottle at Harry’s in Bermuda. Rich malt aroma. Faint chocolate noted. Hazy (chilled glass issue?) orange-copper like a subdued warm glow. Light tan head remains around the side and dusts the tops. Taste is moderate malt with a thinnish mouthfeel. Perhaps a little metal or blood hiding in the corners. Finishes dry and moderately bittering.

Bottle. Pours dark amber medium tan head. Nose is mostly caramel biscuit malt. Taste is medium sweet. Medium body, very smooth, hint of bitter in finish. Overall nice amber.
