ration (1922) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 24, 2012
Bottle. Pours - as visible from the clear bottle - clear golden with a nice small head. Aroma butter, british hops. Butter, caramel. Surprisingly close to the not watered down version. Not Bad.

Ingevara (785) - SWEDEN - DEC 22, 2004
Tempting color, tickles the nose. More acidy than the stronger version and less bitter, less hops, less aroma, less everything, but still not bad.

nazzty (881) - Ödåkra - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - NOV 29, 2012
Really delicious beer with a slight sweetness and good bitterness. One of the better lower alcohol beers.

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.

rarbring (1240) - Linköping, SWEDEN - NOV 15, 2012
Aroma: The smell is sweet toffee, brown bread, sour fruit notes, green apple peel, some fresh mowed lawn.
Appearance: The beer is clear copper amber, a slightly orange hued off-white head, rather high, settles slowly, leaves good lacing.
Taste: Upfront malt sweetness, molasses, then some riper fruits, pears, then a rather sharp chemical bitterness.
Palate: Medium carbonation, small bubbles, rather thin and watery, lack of body, a dry twinge at the end that fades away rather slowly.
Overall: This beer is better in it’s stronger version, at this ABV it becomes a bit sharp and watery.
Note: Bottle 500 ml. Reviewed 2011-01-22.

Beerheart65 (957) - Pori, FINLAND - JAN 19, 2013
Caramel, bread, tiramisu, medium strong aroma. Deep amber, clear, white head about 2 fingers and medium long and leaves lacing. Fizzy carbonation, light body and feel, almost watery, malting on top: bread, nuts, lightly roasted caramel, finish also malty and bitter, dry and bitter. Bit thin but ok flavors still.

alex_alkis (177) - SWEDEN - JUN 5, 2014
Typical Kentish Ale-look with the golden/red-brown color. It’s quite easy to drink even though there is a lot of bitterness in it. Slight taste of sweetness in the flavor.
