Jblauvs (1340) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 27, 2011
Coppery Amber pour with a full frothy offwhite head. Aroma is bready malt, nutty, with some dried fruits, a touch of booziness. Flavor is more bready, luscious maltiness. Too much alcohol throughout though, as it takes away from pleasant malty richness. Finish is clean, and relatively dry.

nuplastikk (4566) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 8, 2011
500ml bottle. Dulled amber-brown color. Thin, frothy head. Sweet, malty aroma, a hint of nuts. Smooth and sweet. Classic English Ringwood yeast tones, toffee, light woodiness. Easy on the palate, goes down quite well for a beer of 6.6%. Soapy, indistinguishable hop character, fishy fining taste. A decent beer, but a little bland.
