mt_hall (129) - Hertfordshire, - JAN 25, 2013
Bottled. A copper coloured bitter with a decent, lasting white head and lively carbonation. Hops, pine resin and a slight sweetness on the nose. Hops and pine dominate the palate too, with a touch of malt in the middle then a dry finish. Pretty good.

panzerwolf (110) - FINLAND - JAN 22, 2015
Pours clear amber. Taste has malts and hops and wood, with a bit of fruits. A very brief bitter finish. It didn’t really make me decide one way or another. Ok beer, but wouldn’t go out of my way to procure it again.

tomer (1851) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - OCT 28, 2014
Bottle, many thanks Roei, small stable bubbly head, clear dark orange to light brown colour, aroma of hay and caramel with some herbs and metalic hints, flavour caramel, grains, some hay and nuts with something metalic in the back, pleasant empathic medium bitterness, lively carbonation. Nice nad easy to drink, like a bitter should be.

OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 10, 2014
Fully fading blond head. Crystal clear golden brown colored body. Weak aroma. A wee scent of caramel, faint hay-ish hops. Well-bodied for low abv beer. Slick mouthfeel. Dry peppery sour-accented malt flavor. Clean earthy bitterness underneath. A mild bop linger in an otherwise short malty finish. [0.5 l clear bottle, bought at my local Meny]
