kermis (5413) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 14, 2012
Bottle at home. Clear amber with an off white head. Fruity malty aroma and flavour with slight caramel and yeast. Slightly bitter finish. Prefer Hobgoblin over this.

mzaar (1640) - Varberg, SWEDEN - MAR 11, 2012
Flaska 50 cl. Bärnstensfärgad öl med medium krämvitt skum. Doftar av toffeekola, päron, knäckebröd och är det grapefrukt månne? Trevlig bitterhet i smaken, där kolan och en fruktighet är dominerande.

ralphdot (988) - Billingham, Durham, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2012
6.6% deep amber with a nice head, burnt malt aroma, very complex bitter taste (that means that I do not have the ability to describe it), very nice beer.

A malt job. Nothing special to look at, neutral aroma, medium mouthfeel. Ok drinkable, but nothing special.

hawthorne00 (2469) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 18, 2012
Bottle. Amber with a light beige head that settles to a fat coat. Aroma of toffee, dried fruit, pears, flowers. Medium bodied - never feels as heavy as expected. Sweet with butterscotch, boiled oranges, raisins, firm dry floral finish is welcome. Nothing flash but pretty solid.
