calm_dreamer (158) - GREECE - FEB 18, 2014
Another awesome label by Wychwood. Pours an amber orange pale body with a very thin layer of soapy foam on top. Smells like caramel, malt, flowers, some hops. The taste has some caramel and some malt but no bitterness or aftertaste. Good carbonation. It’s all it says, kill the thirst.

czar (4371) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 13, 2014
pours hazy medium dark golden orange with a small off-white head, some retention and lacing. caramel and spicy faint maltiness, lean fruitiness - few yellow fruits, faint nuttiness, shy and clean english yeastiness, grass, pepper, hint of sulfur, slightly earthy. moderate to low carbonation, light body - watery, short and almost bland herbal-grassy finish. weak bitter without flaws.

Toomio (196) - Joensuu, FINLAND - JAN 12, 2014
Ihan erilainen kuin bitteristä luulisi. Varmasti mahtava Janojuoma. Jotenkin sellainen viikinkiolut.
