Decent enough light tan head... nice lacing and retention.. the brew is a crystal clear light amber. Nose shows some hoppiness that reminds me of orange blossoms.... floral and somehow a bit earthy.. balanced backbone of pale malt and pieces of toasty malt... no real "caramel or toffee".. pretty damn good. Very balanced... not bitter ever.. good malt presence and a nice floral hoppiness... palate mirrors the aromas. Body is a slippery medium and carbonation is light yet makes me want another sip.. liquid velvet. Very drinkable out of the gate... The label suggests "cellaring"... I am torn, I have my doubts it will do any good, but you never know. Damn tasty and drinkable.. no element overwhelms any other.

hotstuff (4840) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - NOV 26, 2015
Rated on 7-17-2015 (Bottle) The appearance is a small smooth beige head that mostly diminished, hazy amber body, fast rising carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is malt, hops, earthy, and fruity. The flavor is hops, toffee, caramel malt, spicy, and boozy. The mouthfeel is smooth with some light carbonation. This beer is light-medium bodied. This is a good sipping beer that is easy to drink for the style and it is worth trying.

Hoppier than I like. Typical Widmer, making "please everyone" basic safe beers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Marduk (6015) - Reval, ESTONIA - NOV 12, 2015
Tap @Olutexpo 2015. Deep amber color. Small size, yellow head, stays. Sweet, caramel, fruity, vinous, raisins in aroma. Raisins, caramel, toffee, sweet in taste. Long lasting raisins in aftertaste. I can feel the alcohol, but can’t actually taste it. And that’s the way I like it. Very well balanced. Excellent brew. More!

660ml bottle (OlutExpo2015)
Nice perfumey aroma. Light palate for its strength. Sweet malty body, but almost thinish. Does work as a sipper, but it’s so light you want to drink it more like a weaker beer. Caramelly and toffee finish.
