1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Sampled from bottle.
Hazy golden colour. Rancid buttery aroma. Sourness and rancid butterscotch prevent any other flavour sensation to step forward. A medium bitterness was sensed alright. Somehing went really wrong here.

Bottle on the bus @ RBESG.
Pours hazy pale golden with a big, frothy/bubbly white head. Aroma has wet malts, oranges and some sourness. Medium carbonation. Pretty sweet flavour with some citric tartness and pepper behind it. Not very good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep amber colour with mediumsized creamy beige head. Aroma is fruits, sweet malts, caramel and a good dose of diacetyl. Flavour is quite the same but has some mildly roasted notes. The finish is rather papery dry with lots of fruityness (yeast?) coming in.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
1.5 L bottle. Pours hazy yellow to orange with a slowly collapsing white head. Sweet floral to fruity aroma yet with a lot diacetyl. Flavour sweet, a bit honey like and with a mild floral/fruity note. Ends with a mild bitterness and quite fruity, althought with a persisting butterish note throughout.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle on the bus of banter. Alround rating: Buttery biscuity malts, raw bitterness and an iodine bitterness makes it a bit harsh. Nothing like as hot as the 10.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
From a PET bottle at a RBESG08 bus trip. Deep golden with medium white head. Malty aroma with unpleasant rancid butterscotch. Alcoholic, sour and bitter. Appearantly something went wrong here.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: AUG 20, 2008 PET bottle. Lightly hazy golden, airy head. Lemony nose with some unpleasant rotting fat. Sweet and unclean, cellary and sweaty. Bold fizzy mouthfeel. Salty finish. As I understand this beer was bought only one day prior to sampling at the brewery, so even if it was in a sad shape at the time of tasting noone but the brewery is to be blaimed.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a PET bottle (great label) shared out by someone in the bus on day 2 (thanks whoever you were)
Again, maybe a bit too warm for a fair rating and I apologize. Poured a nice murky golden body with a white head. A nice yoghurty-grainy nose. The hoppy bitterness forces its way up front around a mild yoghurty yeastiness and a slightly fruity maltiness. A bit grainy. A good beer but not as flashy as I hoped it would be. It probably deserves better than this.
