Bottle - pours dark ruby with a diminishing off white head. It’s of sweet malt, cereal, light fruit, grassy and malt aromas you’d get in the mash. Taste is sweet up front which lingers for a long time before the dry finish comes in from the top of the mouth, the whole thing lasts for ages. Carbonation is low and the mouthfeel is sooth and silky.

lokis333 (409) - Biržai, LITHUANIA - SEP 15, 2016
Clear deep amber color with lively tan foam. Aromas of chewing gum, light mint, caramel and marzipan with light undertones of coffee and hops. Palate, medium to light body with smooth texture and is rather flat leaving little sweet finish. Taste is sweet of caramel and biscuit malts with light sweet touch of hops. Overall, nice simple with pleasant aromas but not too overly exciting for me.

nybol (1460) - DENMARK - JUN 4, 2016
En meget nøddeagtig smag, med en svag smag af bitterhed og sødme. Den nøddeagtige smag varer ved i eftersmagen.

Good mix of malty caramel flavors and a subtle and crispy hop finish in the aftertaste.

A smooth taste of caramel and some hops. Not too bitter, has tones of fruit and toast. A very nice beer to drink, feels smooth in your mouth.

Cunningham (7051) - Halden, NORWAY - SEP 10, 2015
Lovely amber color with a fine off white head. Berry fruity, toffee and a nice hoppy feeling in the nose. Nice body and a fine carbonation. Well balanced sweetness and bitterness. Berry fruity, herbal, toffee, bready and a nice hoppy touch in the flavor. Lovely tasty ale!

Flaske 500ml fra Kilpishalli. Mørk gyldenbrun med et lite rødskjær. Middels høyt luftig skum. Tett lacing. Bra aroma av bær. Smaken har samme preg. Litt tørr etter hvert. Bra - men litt tynn.
