500ml can. Dark golden body with a big, lively tan head. Aroma is mild caramel. Flavor is refreshing but a bit sweet, some caramel, rather one-dimensional and overcarbonated. Thin body and short finish. Have a feeling of flushing my mouth with CO2, couldn’t finish. Rune (14055) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 30, 2009
500ml can from Centra Colosseum Park in Oslo. Deep, golden-amber body. Rocky white head that lasts for a while. Watered and a rather metallic smell of caramel malts. Flavoured with carefully roasted caramel malts, some dry fruits and hints of bitter grain to the ending. Soft carbonated. Dry in the mouth, still leaving a diluted impression. Neither fish nor fowl (shared with Eva, Tromsø 29.07.2009). Koelschtrinker (22493) - KÃ¶ln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 3, 2011
Etwas herber und angehaucht süßer Antrunk. Schnell wird das Ganze trocken, in Teilen blechern. Dies stört nicht, ist aber auch nicht unbedingt das schönste Aroma. Trocken herber Abgang, minimal würziger Nachgeschmack, in dem sogar Hopfennuancen vorhanden sind. 8/8/7/5/7/5

0.5l can dug up from my mother’s basement. I found a big bag packed with old beer cans that I totally had forgotten existed in my mothers basement, and this was one of them! Anyhow, this one pours a dark clear golden body with a quickly diminishing just off-white and sidesticking bubbly head. It does really not smell all that much. I get some light acidic tones blended with pale malts and perhaps some not so pleassant metallic hints. The flavor is either not exactly how it used to be. It might have something to do with the expiration date, but I’m not sure this one ever tasted that good. It has a average to lively carbonation level with a thin and somewhat watery texture. Light sweet and buttery in the flavor, more of the irony-metallic tone found in the aroma. It ends light drymouthing with a hint of sour in the aftertaste. Not as good as I remembered it, but still a damn good surprise to have this one last time, as this was one of the first "other than Hansa"-beers I purchased back in the days. 14.01.2012 TEJA (3392) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 3, 2017
Off white thin lace. Clear light brown color. Unpleasant caramel aroma.
Sweet caramel taste without bitterness. Clinging and sticky sweetness.
