The color’s deep caramel brown, with a touch of golden tone; ample tan foam, dissipating after a few minutes. Smells caramel-y sweet with a touch of fruit, sugar cookie dough. Nice caramel flavor with a touch of roasty bitterness, nice medium mouthfeel with somewhat bready, also somewhat creamy character. Really yummy, has character still easily drinkable. Cheers.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(swing top bottle) Clear, amber colour with a medium-sized and slightly tanned foamy head. Slightly earthy, molassy and toasted malty aroma with notes of caramel. Sweet and delicately bitter flavour, medium to light bodied with a smooth carbonation. Mildly toasted malty aroma with notes of caramel, shades of chestnuts, molasses and a tinge of drying spicy hops; malt accented, slightly toasted finish with present notes of caramel and shades of herbal hops. Not bad, has something of a diluted dark Bock. 29.IV.14

Pours out of the bottle in a hazy amber colour with steady head and medium body. Aroma of straw and grains. Taste of hops, straw, grains, bread, flowers and herbs. Nice and smooth to drink with being refreshing and quaffable.

Nix Besonderes, aber dennoch sueffig. Malzige Momente werden durch ein wenig Zitrone, Hopfen und Gras unterbrochen. Trinkbar, nett, etwas bieder - ganz ok.

Dunkel braun klar, malzig in der Nase, für meinen Geschmack auch etwas zu malzig im Geschmack. Aber trotzdem gut trinkbar

On tap at The Dirty Truth in Northampton. Pours a pale golden with very little white head. Very bland and non-descript. Not great. Shouldn’t have ordered this one...

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Aroma: Bready, but old and somewhat stale. A little caramel, too, and a little metal. Lightly fruity, with an apple tinge. Appearance: Bubbly copper pour with an off-white head that dissipates completely. Flavor: Bread becomes more toasty; there is an underlying herbal presence not immediately detected in the nose. Caramel-glazed all around. Lingers with some bitterness toward the finish. Palate: Medium body, oily texture, average carbonation, slightly bitter finish. Overall: Not a particularly pleasing example of the style for me. Just aiight.
