OleR (4804) - 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 (334) - 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.

larsga (6824) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 15, 2008
Big light brown head. Light brown body with light carbonation. Roasty nutty caramelly aroma with hoppy notes. Kind of weak. Dry watery roasty nutty taste. Quite sweet, too. Dry wooden hoppy aftertaste. Too much water for my taste. (0.5l bottle from gr0ve.)

TET (2207) - Kaarina, FINLAND - MAY 30, 2008
Copper-brown beer with weak blond head. Aroma is quite tastefull: malts, nuts, hops and some toffee. First mouthfull is nice and there are flavours but then everything disappear but maybe there are found malts, grass and bitter hops. Very thin and watery-like to drink. Very quickly disappering taste and watery palate spoils this beer and that is sad because there are some potency to make this better beer.

Jonte (1413) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - MAR 14, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 5, 2008 Bottle. Brown/red color with an off-white head. Aroma: Lightly roasted malt, caramel, nuts and some bitter hops. Flavor: Fruit, butterscotch, caramel, grass, minerals, bread and lightly roasted malt. Some bitterness in the aftertaste. Not that bad, but very watery and thin bodied.

FatPhil (11544) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 10, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 11, 2007 500ml bottle. Dark orange, thin fluffy head. Simple english bitter aroma, hops and malt. Taste matches sweet and simple bitter, at times a little metallic. Presumably this was for the Swedish market.

Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 22, 2007
500 ml bottle. Copper colour. Crystal clear. Medium-sized off-white fine-laced head that clings to the glass. Sweetish nutty and malty aroma with clean earthy hops. Crisp hop flavours. Mouthfeel is light and crisp, but also watery. Finishes somewhat empty because of the water. Drying grassy hops in the finish.

rickgordon (3846) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 12, 2007
Bottled. Clear copper colour. Frothy head. Subtle notes of sweet caramel and Kentish hops in aroma, but not much malt profile. Watery with bit of butterscotch, bit of toast malts and UK hops. Flavourwise very nice but oh so lacking in body. Nice light bitterness.
