3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Thanks to Michael Rosenow who brought this home. Thin head over a cola-brown body. Slightly roasty malt smell with some brown sugar backing. The taste is fruity more than roasty, befitting an ale. Also some cider to the palate. Michael said he tastes coriander, but I don’t get much spice to it. A bit of tartness toward the end. Turns out nice.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - much thanks to KerenMK for the new country tick! Pours clear dark brown to black with a ruby tint, medium off-white head that slowly disspates with nice lacing. Aroma is malty with notes of roasted malt, caramel, grass, and perhaps a bit of metal. Flavor is the same, initially smoky and a bit salty, although the smokyness fades with time. Medium sweet with a light grassy/metallic bitterness. Medium body. Interesting and certainly drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle from gotmos, hauled this all the way back from the homeland. It pours with a black body and a ghost white head. Quickly the head fades. The aroma is dusty dry dark cracker with light cracker. Taste is less corn with a more malt sweetness. This takes away from the dryness in the aroma, it also finishes a bit watery. A light easy drinking beer with just a bit of corn, so in general good.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, thnx to Tomer. Pours a clear dark brown beer with a small off white head on top. Aroma is very malty, fruits and quite promising. Flavour seems a bit infected I guess, sour fruits and Brett-like characters going on that doesn’t really suits Mr. Looking at older ratings showed that is wasn’t any sour before, most sour trails come from pay few months. Seems like am off batch to me.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
33cl bottle thanks to Nustu. Pours dark with a reddish hue and a decent head. The nose has a sour taste again, hard cherries, Lewis says. The taste is quite sour again and it seems like it’s off.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: MAY 27, 2007 Poured a deep brown with ruby red highlights and a large off white head. A very pretty beer. Aroma is roasted malts, sweet, and some bitter hops. Flavor is sweet, slight roasted malts, and herbs. Finishes with a little bitterness. Body is a bit thin with too much carbonation. Can’t say I like this beer, but wasn’t a bad experiance either.

Bottle shared by someone. Interesting. A bit wierd. Smooth, earthy, like bread and butter biscuits baked a little too long. Could go either way on this one.
