Bov (9755) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - AUG 8, 2009
from beerangel.de - clear dark amber colour with a little slightly beige foam; notes of red fruits and chewy malts; sweet and medium-bodied, clean palate, slightly fruity and flowery finish - not bad at all

500ml botte (Angleterre, Helsinki)
Metallic aroma - copper. Some malts too. ich orange, large off-white head. Pleasant sweet malty taste. Sweet caramelly body, smooht, crisp carbonation. Finish starts caramelly, then hits hazelnut and walnut. Hint of something mushroomy too. Very easy drinker, but a bit sweet maybe. Nice winter beer, I guess.

pivnizub (9004) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - NOV 14, 2005
Bottle: Copper coloured, thin, fluffy off-white head; malty nose (caramel&faint traces of molasses) with a touch of aromatic(!) hops; slightly sweetish malty taste in the beginning, becoming quickly dryer in the mouth; mild bitter flavour; malty and fruity finish with a moderate bitterness; well balanced, well drinkable !

Drake (8980) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - NOV 27, 2008
500 mL bottle from Wine Warehouse. Pours a reddish amber color with a medium head, low head retention and average lacing. Toasted malt aroma with subtle caramel and hop notes. Toasted malts in the taste also with some green apple, caramel and hops. The hops are slightly more assertive in the taste but are still pretty much in the background. Medium bodied. Very nice.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2008
Bottled. A rich amber coloured beer with an off-white head. The aroma is fairly bready sweet malty. Caramel and bread sweetness in the taste. A nice body and pretty nicely tasty.

MoritzF (8590) - Bochum, GERMANY - NOV 2, 2005
(bottle) Clear copper colour with a foamy slightly off-white medium head. Dusty slightly sweet malty aroma with lemon peel. Light sweet fruity flavour, medium body. Smooth sweet malty taste, drying out towards the finish; slightly bitter and hoppy aftertaste with a consistent and almost complex malts character. A tasty seasonal brew, nothing great but well quaffable.

Rune (8464) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 5, 2013
Many thanks to Finn for a 500ml bottle, 5.4 % abv, of this one. Beautiful appearance with a decent, almost white coloured body fading slowly on top of a crystal clear, golden brown coloured body. Lace sheet to the glassware. Smooth aroma of caramel malts, herbs and grain. Malty flavour containing caramel, nuts, earth, herbs and almond. Dry malty finish. A warming, malt-accented beer that fits the season (Tromsø, 04.01.2013).

kevnic2008 (8450) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - SEP 20, 2012
Yellow-amber colour. Moderate malty aroma, caramel. Easy drinkable, citrus and malt dominates the palate.

leaparsons (8303) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2005
Red/brown with a small white head. Aromas are sweet malty and doughy with hints of fruit. Flavours are sweet and malty with a roast character, bready dough and some smokiness coming through. Has rich winter fruit, quite Xmassy. Quite light on the finish but all up to that point is very good.
