Maria (10158) - Thisted, DENMARK - DEC 20, 2008
Courtesy of Fonefan, handbottled fresh beer. It is red-golden with a huge, creamy head. The aroma has notes of malt, flower and hints of oranges. The flavour has notes of butterscotch, malt, fruit and hints of oranges. It is an uncomplicated and OK altbier.

kappldav123 (5000) - GERMANY - DEC 11, 2008
The bottle looks simple, but good. The beer in the glass lighter than exspected. Copper-coloured. Starts spicy and strong, modest dry. Finish a bit woody. Very drinkable and good Alt.

darkseduction (594) - Zweibrücken, GERMANY - AUG 4, 2008
One liter fliptop. Copper coloured brew with stable head. Hoppy nose, slight roasted grain smell. Slim malty body, massive hops but a great assembly. Refreshing, longlasting and delicious hop finish. Great brew!

MrRomero (1975) - Nolanville, USA - MAY 26, 2008
One liter fliptop bottle: poured orange with a large fluffy beige head. Light hop aroma with a bit of malt, light roastiness. Mild bitter hop flavor initially, picking up in the finish. Nothing blows me away with this beer.
