wyzzywyz22 (2094) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2008
Bottle, Oddbins, Liverpool. Pours orangey brown with a vanishing head. Aroma is grapefruit and hops. Soft mouthfeel. Flavour is piney and hoppy with some fruit present also. Very American in style, but that is no criticism. Nice lingering dry bitter finish. Donít know why but I wasnít expecting much from this, but it turned out to be a truly excellent brew.

Bottle from Oddbins. An attractive copper/red colour with a decent off-white head and slight carbonation. Red fruit and caramel aroma with some citrus hops. Caramel was prominent in the flavour with a bitter, earthy finish. Good.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 21, 2007
Dark red colored, medium sized thick yellow head. Rich and fine nutty and caramelly, very sweet aroma, somehow reminds me of some doppelbocks, some raisins and plum also here. Medium bodied. Flavor also starts with this nutty-caramelly sweetness, ending dries mildly, still not very bitterish brew. Some tea-notes and nuts still in aftertaste, good beer.
