Pringao_Toribi (179) - Oviedo, SPAIN - OCT 11, 2013
A bitter mawing as it should be, rich and spicy flavour, hoppy aftertaste with a hint of liquour.

gyllenbock (4083) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 5, 2013
Bottle from ICA Viksjö. Copper with a creamy white head. Aroma and taste of malt, tea, some light "perfume", nuts and fruit. Rather tasty for being a 3,5% beer.

larsga (5962) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 18, 2009
Medium coarseish offwhite head. Lovely coppery brown body. Harmonic peppery caramelly aroma with nutty wooden notes. Dry-sweetish caramel and pepper taste with roasty wooden nutty notes. Mid-bodied. Smoothish mouthfeel. Dry roasty peppery cardboard aftertaste with metallic dandelion notes. Quite nice and drinkable, but the full version is much better. Ɛ.5l bottle, MaxiMat, Charlottenberg.)

vinter (3) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 20, 2010 does not count
An ale like /so/ many others, but with its relatively low alcohol content it does no harm. Red appearance and slightly thin taste.

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 16, 2011
Bottle 50 cl. Courtesy of fonefan. Pours a clear amber with a handsome off-white head. Sweet caramel in the nose, nuts and chicory. Light body, nuts and birned caramel with a fruity touch. Subdued bitterness. Actually pleasant drinking. 160411

nazzty (820) - Ödåkra - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - JUN 2, 2012
The foam will disappear pretty quickly. Good bitterness and smooth malt flavor. I miss, however, toffee flavor that is normally found in the English ales.

KnutAlbert (5757) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 18, 2008
Bottle from Svinesund. Nutty, bittersweet, refreshing. Not bad, there is enough body here to make it escape from the watery trap.

Gr0ve (2113) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 15, 2009
UPDATED: FEB 20, 2009 500 ml bottle. Small fine-laced white head. Nutty crisp caramelly aroma with spicy and earthy hops. Rich and inviting aroma. Crisp hop flavours with a somewhat fizzy mouthfeel. Clean hop bitterness that feels dry and earthy. Hops dominate, but there is also quite a bit of malty flavours there. A very refreshing beer. Great session beer.

LoFi (1517) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 11, 2012
Bottle. Quick rating. Amber, off-white head. Fruity, sweet and grainy malt, not that high bitterness. Light-bodied. Not bad for a low ABV beer, but probably won’t buy it again.
