Marko (5078) - Split / Zagreb, - NOV 13, 2012
Draft at Sheridan’s, Zagreb. Lovely shiny full amber body, lasting bubbly head. Subtle sweetish nose, orange and vague cinnamon. Lovely jaffa cakes orange dominates the slightly too watery body. Liiiight bitter finish. Man, it’s so watery but so damn tasty. I’d have it again and again. Great stuff.

Bamsen78 (5104) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 24, 2016
Draught @ Fox & Hounds, Sønderborg. Poura hazy amber with small off-white head. Clear aroma of hops, malt, orange and spice. Bitter, hoppy flavour with notes of bitter orange peel, cinnamon and malt, with touches of leaves amd yeast. Bitter and estery aftertaste with spicy touches. Okay but not top notch.

guzgorog (747) - FRANCE - NOV 6, 2016
Robe ambrée/rousse, fine mousse blanche. Nez malt, caramel épices (canelle). En bouche, la canelle domine trop, le malt (caramel, biscuit) est malgré tout présent et la finale est légèrement houblonnée et amère. Pas très équilibrée, pour les amateurs de canelle...

hrabren (981) - Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 23, 2016
At Sheridan’s Irish Pub in Zagreb. Amber colored, off-white diminishing head. Malts, yeast, biscuit, cinnamon, gingerbread. Sweet with a gingerbread kick! Full Taste, enough body, medium carbonation. Nicely spiced, excellent, it was worth the money!
