MoritzF (8590) - Bochum, GERMANY - MAY 31, 2014
(bottle) Clear, dark amber colour with a short and tanned foamy head. Slightly ashy malty aroma with notes of caramel, accompanied by slightly grassy and subtle fruity hops. Moderately sweet and slightly bitter flavour, light bodied with a soft carbonation. Mildly roasted malty taste with notes of caramel, bread crusts and ashes, combined with lighter spicy and slightly grassy hoppy accents; bitter-sweet and slightly roasted malty finish with spicy and delicately fruity hops. Unspectacular but likeable. 16.IV.14

MichaelAwesome (4438) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - APR 25, 2014
Nice one. Hops with some malt, barley and even some fruity moments. Drinkable, bit thin and watery end. Nothing special, but an ok one.

McTapps (4439) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - APR 25, 2014
Pours out of the bottle in a deep golden / light amber colour with low head and flat body. Aroma of dark hops and malt. Taste of hops, barley, malt, leaves, caramel and nuts. Bitter-medium dry finish. Nice and smooth to drink, not a bad one.

Vighals (1322) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - APR 19, 2014
Brunorange klar med beige skum. Malt og søt sitruslukt. Smaker malt, humle og mer syrlig sitrus enn i lukten. Lite kullsyre, kort og lett
