Grovlam (4198) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 11, 2007
Draught @ Den Tatoveret Enke. Nice big white head that mostly lasted. Somewhat clear sparkling body with a somewhat dark golden color. Aroma of spice, yeast, caramel, grain and some heavy underlying fruity notes as well. Medium bodied with an average carbonation and hint of warming alcoholic texture. Flavor was sweet with a hint of acidic. Sweet fruity finish.

Beltramelli (470) - Campinas, BRAZIL - DEC 11, 2007
Fraca no aroma, essa breja tem paladar de malte, fermento e cravo. Não impressiona muito, mas tem boa drinkability.

mdachi (35) - Paderborn, GERMANY - DEC 7, 2007
Poured from a 33cl bottle. Aroma: overall heavy, a little alcoholic, then some fruits. Appearance: Gold with little haze from yeast depot, stable white head. Flavor and Palate: It was slightly metallic (like blood), after this medium bitter an less sweet and fruity. Overall too light and thin for my expectation, hence something dissatisfying.

KnutAlbert (6593) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 25, 2007
It says blonde on the bottle, but it is bordering on ambré. Nice and spicy, including vanilla. But the label says maize, too, which makes my alarm bells ring. I doubt there is real vanilla, too. Minus for cheating!
