Hazy brown bronze color with a film of tan lacing. The aroma is spicey with notes of molasses & hops; nice malty body. The flavor has a creamy cinnamon note with a bit of sweet malts. Finishes with a nice medium body; mild complexity. Good beer. Thanks Mads!

Big head but does not last long. Strange aroma with some king of vegetable. Bit spicey also. Nice golden orange in color. Semi sweet malts with decent bitterness. Soft mouthfeel with a bit of butterscotch. Finish is dry and hoppy. Thanks to Dixen for this one.

Smells like cheese and socks, butter, golden delicious apples. Tastes like apples and diacetyl. Maybe some bit of spice from far away--cinnamon? Good, better than Stickenjab flavor-wise, and much better than it smells, but the feel is mouthcoating....almost at the threshold of my diacetyl tolerance. This was interesting. Thanks, Dorwart!

Tap, DBF 2004. Hazy bronze chestnut, thin white head and low condition. Sweet caramel malt and yeast in the nose, quite full in the mouth with malt, toffee and a trace of roast barley. Some hop bitterness develops in the finish but the roast barley lingers longer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A nice nut-brown body with a cream coloured head. A weak malty aroma. Taste is malthy, with a bitter finish, but not very impressive. It´s a good gold´beer but it´s to "one-sided".
