lusikka (6609) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 27, 2010
Pours a clear red/brown colour with a very lacy white head. Malty on the nose with an aroma of a wet wool sock. Flavour of slightly toasted malts, nuts and caramel. Hoppy finish which is pretty nice for a 3,5% abv brew. Medium bodied. Pleasant bitter.

progressive (74) - Vantaa, FINLAND - JUL 17, 2010
This is bitter, caramel and roasty... the roastyness isn’t very welcome, doesn’t taste so nice, but anyway this is comfortable. [Bottle]

Copper colour with small to average creamy white head. Skunky hoppy dark bitter aroma with caramel. Strong dark hoppy flavour with some bitterness. Slightly watery but pretty good.

Bottle. Creamy white good mostly lasting head. Orange colour. Light malty and moderate hoppy aroma. Light bitter flavor. Short light bitter finish. Watery palate. Boring but nice looking.

Nisse666 (4563) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 1, 2009

KimJohansen (10350) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - OCT 18, 2009
Clear amber with a medium sized beige head. Aroma had hops, caramel and malty notes. Flavour was hoppy with malt and caramel notes. A bit watery but ok.

heavy (2195) - Split, CROATIA - OCT 15, 2009
09/10 0.5 l bottle from the English store, Antibes. Couldn’t swear this is the right version, but the green 3,5% label rang my bells when saw this image. Brown to reddish bodied brew with smaller ocher head. Caramel, coffee, some chocolate and a bit of orange in its aroma. In flavor only orange is dominant, there are some toast and caramel, but just in traces. It’s bitter, with thin body and shorter bittersweet finish. Quite liked this one, despite slightly thinner body.

Svesse (6524) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - OCT 3, 2009
(Bottle) Dark amber colour with frothy, beige head. Malty nose with notes of caramel, dark fruit and spicy hops. Malty taste with caramel, toast, dark fruit and spicy hops in a rather dry, metallic finish. Rather thin body. Decent low abv version of the beer.

eeblah (104) - Arizona, USA - SEP 9, 2009
Nice amber/caramel color beer. The one i had was bitter with a very clean buit not much flavor. Good any time of year, the name is great, although the clear bottle might have changed the flavor, gonna have to try tap sometime. Brought from the UK by my friend.

PaulsPissed (37) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 26, 2009
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2009 Nice fruity aroma, not much wrong with its dark amber colour, strong fruity taste, a bit nutty and spicy, a little bit watery but still leaves a distinct taste.
