Polypin container at a party in SW7. An amber coloured pour with a medium white head on top. Hoppy, malty aroma. Tastes slightly hoppy, quite malty, caramel, slightly fruity. 3 pints went down quite well actually.

MoritzF (8860) - Ottobrunn, 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 (5914) - 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.

Brunorange klar med beige skum. Malt og søt sitruslukt. Smaker malt, humle og mer syrlig sitrus enn i lukten. Lite kullsyre, kort og lett
