Bottle at home in Salisbury, CT - who knows where I got this. Pours crystal clear, dark gold, lightly effervescent with a moderate, foamy white head. Sugary bread, caramel and ripening fruits in the nose. Medium sweet flavor with candied fruits, orange, sugary bread, minimal bitterness, a bit of caramel. Medium bodied with average carbonation and lightly creamy texture. Sweet finish, somewhat one-dimensional, with further caramel, bready and sugary malts. Perhaps a touch syrupy at points. Honestly, though, this isn’t bad. It quite reminds me of a mild, German dunkel, or just a basic amber lager. yngwie (17038) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle, 22oz. A clear, golden beer with a small, white head. The aroma is sweetish and lightly fruity, rather uninspired. The flavor pretty much the same, fruity and lightly sweetish, a faint bitterness chiming in. Short finish. Most definitely not worth a revisit. 130811 jtclockwork (16443) - , New Jersey, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Bottle thanks to Blipp shared at tasting at my house. Pours gold with white head. Nose and taste of paint, sweet malt and corn chips. Light bodied. brokensail (16436) - Dublin, California, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Amber colored pour with a white head. Sweet bread, banana, yeast, a bit of water, and some grain. Light apple and metallic notes, some slight tartness, too. Flavor has a surprising amount of banana, which is nice. Toasted malt, bread, and yeast. Lightly metallic and tart on the finish. bhensonb (15093) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 23, 2013
Bottle from a Grocery Outlet. Pours light, clear amber with a creamy off-white head. Aroma is lightly yeasty with a suggestion of hop. Med minus body. Flavor is actually not too grainy, but it drops off to a bit papery. Hop is clearly present, but there’s not enough to make this interesting. Nifty label tho.

Bottle from a Grocery Outlet. Pours light amber gold with a creamy white head. Aroma of malt and mild/light spicy hop. Med body. Flavor is caramel/bready with noticeable noble hop - seems a bit spicy to me. It’s well balanced, maybe even bending to the dry side. Tastes pretty good, and it drinks quite nicely.

Bottle. Pours a clear amber with paperthin head that diminishes quickly to nothing. The aroma is caramel malt and raisin. Thin mouthfeel with a watery malt and light caramel. Not much going on with this one. Borup (14334) - Albertslund, DENMARK - DEC 16, 2013
