thedm (4920) - Fort Wayne, USA - JUN 26, 2008
This bottle brew from Indianapolis, IN poured a small sized head of foamy off-white colored mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a hazy orange brown colored softly carbonated body and a poor lacing. The aroma was a simple mild malt hop one. The mouth feel was strongly tingly from start to finish. The flavor was of soft malts and medium crisp hops.

hotstuff (4058) - Indiana, USA - MAY 28, 2008
Bottle. Light brown small head that mostly expired, virtually no lacing, very little carbonation, and an orange golden hue. The aroma was malt, weak hoppiness, bitter, and some caramel. The flavor was light bitter, malt and some hops. Rather dull and boring. Tingly mouthfeel and medium bodied. This beer was not a palate pleaser for me and it’s a beer that easily forgettable for me. Next!

thebeertourist (4755) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 27, 2008
Bottle. Pours amber with good offwhite head. Interesting aroma, full of cocoa and yeastiness. Flavours have a spicy edge as well, hints of rye, in addition to the cocoa. Medium body. A nice surprise.

sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 26, 2008
Tasted 5/24/08. 500ml bottle. Filtered and amber. Clinging lacing off-white head. Similar grainy nose. Brownie cocoa aromas with a touch bready. Medium bodied with an odd citrus flavor. Caramel and cocoa flavor. Mild effervescence and good tingling note. Dry and bitter. Classic taste. Little light on the body, but hella session!

thegreenrooster (3154) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 23, 2008
Pour is a orange with a whtie head. Aroma is of sweet malts and a little mustyness. Flavor is some dark malts and a bit of caramel. I really could not tell the difference between this beer and the bitter i had from this brewer about 15 minutes ago. Both were watery and boring.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - MAY 22, 2008
(on bottle) Burnt toast-aroma. Dark orange, white head. Not big on the taste, subtle malts. Good, soft sessioncarbonation, fresh enough to give it a kick, welsh style o´kick mark you.

caesar (4892) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 21, 2008
Bottle @ thewolf-and-his-flock-of-sheep tasting session. Clear orange color. Aroma reminds me of an old ale, caramelly and malty. Malty taste. Quite boring though.

Pours clear, coppery golden with a fine, creamy, off-white head. Good lacing. Aroma is mild, some burnt toffee and very weak hops. Medium carbonation, a bit thin. Flavour has light toffee, with some hoppy dryness. Pretty boring.
