Old notes. Copper body, white head. Aroma has some sweet malt and light fruity hops. Flavour is some malty caramel some bitterness. Not my favourite.

Moebbels (514) - FINLAND - AUG 15, 2014
Pours a clear amber body with a tan head that leaves plenty of lacing on the glass. Nose is malty with caramel and rye notes accompanied by a hint of herbs and spices. Taste is malty and sweet with a dry and lasting finish. Carbonation is soft and the body is rich and filling. A decent beer for cooler days but very heavy and malty.

Amber beer with a brown beige head. Some caramel on the nose. Soft and foamy mouth feel. A bit thin body. Bread and caramel taste. Forgettable but ok.

(Keg at Gastropub Stones, 20140724) The beer poured amber and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had toffee, strawberries and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, sweetness, toffee, earth and bitterness. Afteraste was sweet and bitter. A good solid bitter but a bit too sweet.

UPDATED: MAY 26, 2014 Tap@stone’s. Amber clear. Caramel malty, fruity green berry candy. Lightish body, soft, nicely carb’d. Nutty toffee, dark caramels. Really nutty, surprised me. Not bad at all, quite flavourful.

Hana @ SOPP Tampere. ASB kaatuu lasiin mahonkisena ja kirkkaana, keskikokoisella katoavalla vaahdolla. Tuoksussa on bitterille tyypillistä keksiä ja paahdettua pähkinää, jonkin verran löytyy myös karamellia ja kuivattua hedelmää. Maussa vahva pähkinäisyys jatkuu, myös keksiäkin on joukossa, mutta lisänä on puumaisuutta ja makeutta ei juuri ole. Suutuntuma on suht katkera ja täyteläinen. Melko pähkinäinen bitter, johon olisi kaivannut hieman enemmän ulottuvuutta. Näin tämä jää hieman yksipuoliseksi.
