Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 28, 2010
Bottle, from restaurant in Shanghai. Amber-gold with not much head. Bland caramel malt aroma. Easy-going, good body with low carbonation. Sweet fruity malts, toffee, and caramel. Unexciting but good enough.

Alphadelic (2232) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 17, 2009
Very clear, very crisp, amber. Fuddy cereal nose but loads of alcohol in the mouth. A sweet caramel finish but loads of horrid burn and numbing alcohol. Not cool. Not well judged.

thewolf (12482) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUL 14, 2008
Tap @ a corner pub in Brno.
Pours deep, clear golden with a small, staying, creamy, off-white head. Aroma has viniousness, apple, grainy malts and weak grassy hops.Even somes vanilla notes peeping through. Full and fat mouthfeel. Vinious flavour, fat, chewy maltiness. Weak bitterness. A bit too malt-centric and too alcoholic, but still very drinkable.
