(Draught) Pours clear copper red. Light aroma with notes of malt and fruits. Undertones of some grassy hops. Light fruity and light bitter flavour with a rather weak malty body. Grassy finish with a touch of bread syrup.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 3, 2007
Bottle, 500 ml. Shiny reddish amber color, small mostly diminishing beige head. Good lacing. Dominating caramel aroma. Also hops and scents of dried fruits. Taste is moderately sweet malts with a slight hopbitterness. Rather thin and watery palate. Long, slight bitter finish.

got this from PE7B, a sort of heimatbier for him. a bit of chocolate taste going to bitter. Alcohol is comes through despite its low level.

taunusmies (337) - FINLAND - DEC 9, 2006
Beautiful amber colour, very clear. Aromas of caramel, toffee and a hint of some fruit. Mouthfeel is quite smooth and light, a bit carbonated. Gentle bitterness. Flavour has some toffee and roasted hops. A very nice beer, indeed.

eaglefan538 (2982) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - DEC 6, 2006
Poured a clear amber color with a nice initial head and very good lacing. The aroma and flavor was tricky, hard to figure out, an odd blend of caramel, toffee, and citrus notes. Some spicing also in there, the citrus adding a bit of twang to the mix. Very low level of diacetyl (something that I’m normally negatively offended by). Fruity esters completes the aroma and flavor profile. Not a bad fine her in beer-deficient Japan.

Lovely red-orange colour, small head. Flowery, sweet malty aroma. Very bitter finish. The taste is mostly flowery.

(Bottled). Copper in colour with a reasonable sized head when settled, but very lively when first out of the bottle. Very carbonated. Scents of malts with a touch of sulphur. Very watery but with a reasonable bitterness. Some hop but spoilt by a metallic aftertaste.
