fiulijn (15360) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 6, 2005
Copper color. Grainy malt aroma, light. Ordinary taste, some malt, sweet caramel, balancing bitterness. Ordinary.

TBone (13000) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 3, 2005
Bottled, 2005 vintage (BB 08/2006)
Copper brown, small off-white head. Sweet rye-malty aroma, like in some non-alcoholic beer. Medium-bodied, lots of rye also in flavor. Barley flavors, slightly alcoholic and tickling carbonation. Drinkable but not very high class.

MiP (13799) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAY 18, 2005
Bottle. Aroma has a hint of malt, wet rag... and metal? Clear dark copper colour, small head. Watery, but still malty flavour. Flavour of unmalted barley also.

rlgk (11504) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 14, 2005
Light amber, offwhite head. Weak fruity aroma. Malty but not with very clear flavours. Ok palate, but I did not want anything extra in this one...

Boystout (1000) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - AUG 17, 2004
Before and after sampling everything in this beer was outstanding: stylish label with Easter cock, beautiful cherry colour (sending Cabernet & Co into second division), high rocky head of foam, rich fruity aroma. Lace was amazing: like a cobweb with similar sized cells. But the beer itself... I expected much more. The palate was flat and neutral (we are talking about 6% Easter beer!), clearly on the malt side but not really bock-like. A disappointment.

larsniclas (5743) - Billdal, SWEDEN - MAY 8, 2004
Bottled. Amber with a shortlasting head. Sour and pungent aroma; hay. Some grassy maltiness.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 24, 2004
Dark brown . Small creamy tan head. Toffee, nuts and pears in aroma. Flavour of chocolate, nuts and grass. Medium bitter finish. Surprisingly good...

rickgordon (3845) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 23, 2004
Bottled. Mahogany colour, big creamy off-white head. Rich malty aroma. Notes of nut and chocolate, with an obvious but ‘fitting’ abv. Full-bodied with a rounded mouthfeel. Feels well balanced, but does not linger. Some bitterness. I'm amazed...

Ingevara (816) - SWEDEN - MAY 3, 2002
My first impression is Fruit. The initial sampling make me believe I’m trying an english bitter, and I like english bitter. But its flavor doesn’t linger like the real stuff. Not bad anyway. Have one!

pilsnerrogge (2537) - Finspång, SWEDEN - MAR 31, 2002
Amber-coloured, nice head. Not much aroma to speak about. Slightly nutty, some bitterness from the alcohol but overall a rather thin beer that lacks character.
