angrybeerman (259) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 24, 2009
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2009 Nice red colour with a decent head. Nice fruity aroma. Like its cousin Spitfire it also tasted quite fruity. However it was a god bit drier than Spitfire which lost it some marks and not as much of a finish either.

BroSpud (1755) - , Massachusetts, USA - FEB 22, 2009
Bottle (Previous tasting from memory). Didn’t like this one. Not sure if it was damaged from the clear bottle or what but it just wasn’t very good. Will not be trying it again.

davidpl (435) - Santiago, CHILE - FEB 15, 2009
Appearance: copper color. Little head. aroma: some nutty, with light smells of caramel and dry-herbs. Flavor: some insipid, presence of caramel malts and nutty in the start. Maybe other reminiscences like red tea and apple skin. Light dry final. Palate: light body, watery texture and medium carbonation. Remark: poor beer.

MiP (13847) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 31, 2008
Bottle, 3.5%. Nutty aroma, grainy vinousness. Clear amber colour. Small tan head. The flavour is nutty with grassy and spicy aroma hops. A bit watery, as expected.

50 cL clear bottle. Pours clear and golden deep orange to hazzlenut brown and a dense off-white head. Dry malty and slight hoppy spiced aroma. Mild breadish and somewhat thin to watery flavoured. Holds a mild bitterness into malt driven finish.

OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 30, 2008
500 ml bottle. A two-finger dense beige head over a clear, plain brown colored body. Moderate aroma of caramellish malts with a nutty and light hoppy note. Taste is light malty and has a fair amount of earthy bittering hops. Feels somewhat watery in the mouth. Fine bitterness in the ending. Likeable.

SeanMacGC (332) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 2, 2008
Insipid on both the nose and the palate, and a not very substantial mouthfeel. Not something I’d be tempted to have again.
