oh6gdx (26488) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 24, 2006
Bottled. Ruby red, not much head. Grassy, hoppy nose with ryeish and fruity notes. Also some weak barnyardish notes can be found. Strong grassy malty and hoppy flavour with some spicy hints. Quite watery palate after all the different stronger ABV stuff. Good for a 4,5% though.

UPDATED: APR 20, 2006 Bottled. Clear ruby, average head. Soapy orangey hop aroma. Medium sweet with clean mouthfeel. Hop driven with big crystal malt character. Spicy orangey finish with good bitterness.

Leighton (21236) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2010
Bottle. Pours a rich amber, clear, with a weak, white head. Malty aroma with hints of caramel, toffee and fruits. Sweet flavor with a prominent malt character and notes of toasted bread, cinnamon, dark fruit and caramel. Light to medium in body with average carbonation. Finishes sweet and quite malty with only faint bitterness. About average.

3.6
rlgk (18850) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 5, 2006
Amber color with a nice creamy offwhite head. Malty aroma, some hops, a bit creamy. Flavor is bitter, but also brings malts and nuts.

3.5
TBone (17528) - Pori, FINLAND - JAN 22, 2006
Bottled (BB 04/2006)
Clear ruby red color, small off-white head. Rye-malty aroma with some barnyardish notes. Malty, a bit hoppy too. Good palate for a 4.5% brew. Balanced, solid but a bit boring beer.

2.9
MiP (15667) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 19, 2010
Bottle. Malty aroma, slightly vinous or oxidised. Dark red brown colour, seems clear. Good stable tan head. The flavour is also vinous and oxidised. OK malty and slightly roasted. Subtle creamy aftertaste. OK, I guess, but I am not a fan of oxidised-tasting beers.

3.3
bhensonb (15190) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 22, 2012
Bottle from Liz. Pours ruddy copper with a 3 finger creamy beige head. Aroma of mild roast malt with hints of spice. Flavor is sweet, lightly sweet, roast malt with very interesting chocolate and mild spice aspects. But it’s not an over the top sort of thing.
