heavy (2773) - Split, CROATIA - JUN 3, 2016
Jan. ’16. On tap at Känguruh, Vienna. It poured very hazy deep red body with medium sizd head. Sharp, tart vinous aroma. Lightly bitter flavor, only a bit from herbal hops and mostly from the roasted malt like coffee. Which brought light sourness, too. Balanced and sweetened with caramel, dark fruits and biscuit. Medium body with long, elegant "biscuit with fresh red fruit jam" malty finish. A good alt, less bitter and more keller-like than usual, but very interesting and enjoyable.

PowY (174) - - MAY 20, 2016
From tap. Brown with off-white lasting head. Aroma of roasted malt (bread) and reluctant hoppy notes of grass. Taste is slightly malty, sweet, plain and smooth with a light and pleasant bitterness. Easily drinkable.

tomer (2905) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - DEC 26, 2015
At a tasting, small fluffy head, quite hazy light nutty brown to red color, aroma of minerals and some burned notes, flavor of caramel with that burned edge, light bitterness and sweetness. Strange but drinkable.

Gurthnar (4986) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 16, 2015
Tap at Salon piva. Quite neutral beer, both in aroma and taste, but very easily drinkable. Light caramel defines most of taste. Quite simple but enjoyable.
