Like our winged friends on the mountain,this ale is full of personality, withjust theright amount of hop! Warm copper colour. A well rounded mouthfeel with subtle bittering. A perfectly balanced brew.

omhper (23513) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JAN 2, 2015
Bottled at Petalax Beer Festival, from Corner Pub, Beijing. Hazy amber, small head. Caramelly cardboard aroma. Mid sweet with medium body and rounded mouthfeel. Caramel and what could pass as cheap whiskey, but comes out more as wet paper. Low bitterness.

fiulijn (19160) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 26, 2012
Draught at Malone’s Urban Drinkery, Vancouver
Amber color, cream; generous head. The aroma is a bit creamy and buttery. Light mouthfeel, some caramel, butter, wood (would that be the whiskey?); low bitterness. Dry final.
What did they want to do?

yngwie (16507) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 3, 2013
On tap. A dark amber beer with a small, dense off-white to light beige head. Rather weak aroma and flavor, some caramel maltyness going on all the way, a touch of grains as well, but all very subdued. There’s also some bitterness, but again, not much. Medium body, soft carbonation, with a short finish. Well, what can I say? It certainly isn’t a bad one, but it’s utterly dull, certainly not a beer I’d choose to have again if there were other choices. 130703

Bottle at wpbf. Amber color, small off-white head. Ryeish, light bourbon in the nose. Light-bodied to medium-bodied. Caramel, whiskey and grass. Perhaps not very fresh.

mcberko (14411) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 11, 2011
341mL bottle, pours dark copper. Aroma of pale malts and burnt caramel. Flavour of roasted caramel, sweetness and toasted nuts. Decent, though uninspiring.

DSG (11600) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - FEB 8, 2014
Bottle sample at Fass Beit Beera Brewhouse. Thanks Ariel. Hazy amber. Oxidized aroma of cardboard, stale chocolate and caramel. Sweetish flavor, malty, oxidized, with stale chocolate, caramel, a bit of honey anda bit of fruitiness. Medium-bodied. Seems old. Not pleasant.

DuffMan (9543) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 27, 2011
Bottle. Medium copper amber, brief white head. Aroma is sweet caramel. Flavours of sweet caramel leaning toward butterscotch, maybe some almonds. Negligable hop presence. Too simple and sweet to repurchase, but not undrinkable.

olio (9292) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 2, 2015
33 cl bottle @ wPBF III.
Pours dark golden color with a small head. Malty aroma, nutty and slightly fruity aroma. Fruity flavor, sweet caramel, some mild hay and malt. Feels a bit old and cardboard-y, sadly.
