AleRider78 (972) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 19, 2017
Pours a huge frothy, bubbly tan head that stays for awhile. Has a coppery/light brown appearance. Ok lacing. Toasty and light roasted malts, breads and mild hints of vanilla. Flavours are very nutty, toasty, with a bit of yeasty thickness. Some notes of toffee, spices and resin hops. In the finish, seems like bitter earthy type hops. Drying and slight warming sensation. Medium bodied, average carbonation. Smooth well balanced mouthfeel. Good balance between bitterness and sweetness. Really good stuff!

Poured an amber color with a white jead. Aroma was of grass, caramel and toffee. Flavor similar. Not my thing

cargo150 (1289) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 23, 2015
Couleur plutot ambree legerement voilee avec une mince mousse stable. En bouche cest plutot vegetal et terreux, caramel, herbes. Un gros bof pour moi...

600 ml bottle. Pours a clear ruby reddish amber with a short lived white head. Aroma is caramel, earth. Flavor is caramel, copper. Finish is somewhat earthy, some red berries, a bit sandy. Lingering mineral notes, rather flavorful overall. Medium body, average carbonation.

Syrianne (10) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 16, 2015
Ambre translucide avec un mousse bien prsente. Petit ct pic. Malt et houblon bien sentit en bouche avec un petit cot caramel et pain grill. Bonne petite ambre. Plutt lgre en bouche, elle nenvahit pas le palais. Amertume lgre ce qui la rend plus intressante de mon ct pour une bire de sa catgorie, sans perdre sa lgeret.

How: Bottle (600 ml) at home. Bottle in June 2015, so 3 months old.

>>> A raisins forward - so not that much on style - but otherwise clean and easy driking german lager.

- Clear amber with a small off-white head, moderate retention, leaving a small ring of foam and little lacing.
- Theres a raisin presence upfront in both aroma and taste which I find a bit annoying.
- A well dosed mix of caramel and toasted malts give this beer a good backbone.
- Body is medium, as is carbonation. The mouthfeel is a bit oily.
- Theres a mild but lingering herbal bitterness.
- Too raisins forward for me, but otherwise its a clean and easy drinking german style lager.

Flavors: Raisins, caramel, toasted malts, herbal notes, mild spiciness, mild noble hops.

HippyHop (620) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 5, 2015
Pours a pretty amber with a fat tan cap that leaves nice lace. Aroma is typical caramel/"red fruit"/roasted grain. Taste is the same predictable sweet, fruity caramel malt, light toasted nuts, light mineral water. The bitterness kicks in just about the time Im starting to wonder where it is. Solid interpretation of the style. Definitely lacks the carbonation of the 2014 version (based on my buddy Freaky_Tikis review)

Bamsen78 (5273) - Snderborg, DENMARK - JUL 10, 2015
Draught @ The Boathouse, Kitchener. Pours hazy copper brown with airy off-white head. Clear aroma of malt, with notes of caramel and yeast and touches of bread. Dusty and sweetish flavour of malt, caramel and bread, with notes of hops and yeast. Bitterish and slightly estery aftertaste. Slightly watery, despite the medium to high carbonation. Nice, especially for the non-native style,

pumpkinhead2 (908) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 8, 2015
Bire orange cuivre, parfaitement limpide, effervescence trs faible, et surmonte dun col beige bien dense et mousseux qui se rduit tout doucement en sagrippant sur les parois du verre. Armes de pain grill, sucre dorge et caramel, avec notes de grain et de raisin rouge, ainsi quun lger bois. Nez peu intressant, complexit et intensit plutt faibles. En bouche, ptillement tout de mme assez lev, breuvage mince au palais. Au got, pain grill, grain rti et bois, significativement moins sucr que ce que le nez laissait prsager, un peu de saveurs de sucre dorge et de caramel. On note galement un houblon qui semble principalement floral et vgtale (branchage, feuille verte), en route vers une finale bien sche lamertume de faible modre. Bire significativement plus intense en bouche quau nez, bonne intgration des diffrentes saveurs entre elles, quilibre malt/houblon intressant, mais complexit qui demeure tout de mme faible. Bire correcte, sans plus
