3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled (thanks K.N.). Amber colour, small beige head. Aroma is caramel and bready malts with some resiny and wooden notes. Flavour is mild toasted malts, caramel and some crystal notes. Pleasant balance, but a bit thin as for the palate.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
bottle 37,5 cl. Pours a red amber with a small white head and an aroma of malts and dark bread. The taste is pretty sweet, with some notes of malt and caramel. There’s some hoppy bitterness to be tasted somewhere, but this beer is mainly sweet. It’s a drinkable beer, but I don’t really like it.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear reddish brown colour, off-white head. Aroma of caramel, madeira tones, quite sweet. Sweet malty flacvour, light bitter. Light bitter finish, old malts, light sweetness.
Not bad, though I imagine it would be better when fresh.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Originally reviewed: 11/9/09. Poured into my pint glass. Pours a dark amber/orange with about an inch’s worth of ivory head on top. Little retention, but it left some good lace on the side of the glass. Smells of toasted malts, caramel, and light floral hops.
The mouth is crisp with a moderate amount of carbonation. Nice sweet caramel starts this beer out. Flavors of bread and crackers fill it in; finishes with a mild hop bite. This is pretty good. This is one of their better beers. I’m glad they’ve ventured into the world of lagers. Nice work, Duck-Rabbit!

Bottles. Pours slightly hazy and amber/copper with an off-white rocky head, leaving a great lacing. Nose of caramel malts and apple notes. Sweet flavor with grassy hops, caramel, nuts and spicy notes. Medium bodied, watery to creamy texture and soft carbonation. Ends up more dry and with a tiny bitterness.
