madsberg (10140) - Søborg, DENMARK - APR 4, 2004
Bottled: Golden coloured. Unclear. Way too much head, even though you pour the beer gentle. Yeast, fruit (apple) and sirup in the aroma. Vague fruity, alcaholdense and malty flavour. Alcahol is too dominant for my likings. Very vague aftertaste. Alcahol is dominant again. Not a beer I'll drink again.

Courtesy of Fonefan. Red-brown with a nice, creamy head. The aroma is sweet and malty with notes of candy sugar and light fruit. The flavour is sweet with notes of malt, candy sugar and a light citrussy bitterness. Ordinary IMO.

Bov (9275) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAY 22, 2002
clear dark reddish colour, fine creamy head, nice lace, peachy and malty aroma, smooth, sweet and heavy, dry fruity finish - lacks of balance

daknole (8914) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 31, 2008
Bottle. Pours a brown color with a small head of very big bubbles. Nose is pure malt and maybe dried fruits. Flavor profile is nutty, malty, sweet. Not bad. Not amazing either.

hopscotch (8862) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 22, 2008
Bottle... Hazy, dark, Longhorn-orange ale with a small, creamy, fawn head. Excellent, tight retention. Grainy, meaty, metallic nose. Medium-bodied and fizzy. Perfectly balanced, but thin and uninspired. A touch chocolaty. Crisp, lightly sweet finish.
