3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From a bottle recieved in a trade with oh6gdx. The body is deep copper with a creamy light tan colored head. The aroma is sweet with cake donuts, caramel and some hints of coffee. The taste has some sweet notes of glazed donuts and cheap caramel. There is also a bit of cinnamon spice and a hint of cardboard. It gets better as you drink. This is a decent ofest, but a little thin with a little too much carbonation.

UPDATED: SEP 13, 2007 Bottled 0,33L.
Much clearly amber color with branch reflex. Much supporter aroma of long persistence with good fizz. Bitterish and coolness scnet, light alcoholic with notes of fresh malty and grain. Pungent and alcoholic taste with a determined and pleasant bitter, much balanced above on the end.
Thanks to mabjork for this beer.

Amber colour, bubbly head. Toast caramel nose, bit dusty and good malty with suggestions of almonds - bock vibes here. Rounded mouthfeel with little carbonation and nice malty with almonds and caramel. Medium body. Good full mouthfeel at this reasonably low abv-level.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
courtesy of oh6gdx - pours a clear amber colour with a poor head retention; some biscuity maltiness, light notes of red fruit; robust malt body maintained by a good carbonation, beautiful balance between the initial sweetness and the finishing pronounced bitterness; long and very dry bitter and malty aftertaste - a very good beer
