Kurtos (172) - Sydney, - DEC 10, 2013
Bottle. Pours an earthy golden colour. Aroma. Itís a nice sweet peppery aroma. Taste. Taste is similar to aroma, but also present from start to finish and in the after taste is a lingering intense bitterness. Overall. This beer is very weak in taste, despite the strong bitterness, a very simple beer that has flavours i like and nothing i donít. With all that weighed up, itís a good beer from start to finish and certainly one of the better ones iíve tasted.

I was surprised at how much I loved this beer. At first itís sweet and it finishes bitter with not much else in between but I really, really loved it. Flavours are there but theyíre fleeting. And delicious. Highly recommended

tfontana (567) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 28, 2016
Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from One Stop Market. Aroma is weak malty base, rye and fruit. Appearance is slightly hazy copper with minimal sparkle, 1/2 finger-width off-white foamy head with poor retention and trace lacing. Taste is mild sweet malt and fruit, with mild spicy rye and bitter second half. Palate is medium bodied with sticky texture, average carbonation and mildly bitter finish. Overall, if this were a bolder version of itself it would be excellent, but it was pretty weak in the aroma and flavor departments.

IPA normal. Tiene aroma a caramelo. El sabor inicial no es intenso, aunque luego deja un sabor largo, pero para mi gusto no sabroso.

It's "ok", very light scent, you can taste the rye and it sort-of has a malty taste too. Not much of an aftertaste, something good and cold for a summer day ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A quiet good one. Some nice hints of 02 and citrus. Maybe a little herbs and licorice with touches of smoke woody.
