NikkTwist (1926) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 8, 2013
Bottle. Hazy amber with no lasting head. Feels like a weak Tripel. Not bad just not complicated. Tasted better cold.

MichaelAwesome (5372) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - APR 8, 2013
Erstaunlich, welch Aromen angedeutet, aber nicht vollkommen ausgeführt werden. Leicht Belgien, leicht hefig und leicht nüssig. Doch immer wieder sind es nur Nuancen, während man auf die Explosion wartet. Schade, mit etwas mehr Herz hätte hier ein Wahnsinn von Bier entstehen können.

McTapps (5377) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - APR 8, 2013
Clear amber colour with very low head and medium body. Nose of light caramel. Looks and everything like a nice ale....Taste of toffee, malt, caramel, mild hops, torf, grass and brown sugar. Very easy and nice to drink, surprisingly refreshing, bubbling and quaffable.

fabioanselmo (185) - Vila Velha, BRAZIL - FEB 23, 2013
Cerveja com predominância do malte, lembrança de fermento e um toque de madeira e caramelo. No nariz, sem grandes notas florais, com lembrança de pão fermentado. Cor belíssima, média formação de espuma. Belo conjunto, contudo falta algo.

emartell (271) - Zapopan, Jalisco, MEXICO - JAN 20, 2013
Aromas ligeros, principalmente a malta y algo de Lupulos aromáticos. Color cobre con destellos brillantes. Carbonatación alta, cuerpo ligero, corona de espuma media de buena retención. En boca Amarga, refrescante y maltosa. Al paladar es una cerveza agradable, muy maltosa y con un caracter fuerte para tratarse de una cerveza laguer. Cerveza interesante, refrescante, agradable, con un sabor caracteristico y ciertas notas fuertes recordando el sabor del whisky.

WheatKing (1319) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 4, 2013
Advent Calendar #11. I got some woody smokey notes, just very mild. Nothing was off, and a bit of caramel that didn’t take away from the fresh lager quality. I’d never had the "old" one, maybe that was better, but this was fine by me.

Vargatul (139) - Bucharest, ROMANIA - DEC 18, 2012
0.33 l bottle, from Auchan. Amber colour, claer liquid, short white head. Aroma has notes of malt, honey, brown sugar, walnut jam. The taste is bitter, the body is full, the carbonation is average. It has a licorice texture and a bittersweet aftertaste.

RumRunner101 (868) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 10, 2012
Deep gold pour. Aroma is bread, grain and there’s a little bit of sweetness in there somewhere. Flavour isn’t much - doughy, soapy hops, lemon peel. A bit of a miss for me.

CapFlu (4733) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 9, 2012
(11,2 fl oz bottle) 2012 Advent Calendar. Pours a thin white frothy head atop a clear dark amber. Nose of corn and wet wood. Flavour is watery, grassy some canned corn. Not great.
