Hazy deep amber beer, good cream colour head. Palate is light and mildly dry and has a fine minerally crispness. Malts are mildly tangy and have a thin creamy sweetness. There is a sweet spud vibe in the mid. More of the white sweet spud than the orange variety. Mild floralness and a whisper of marmalade. Light semi dry finish. Hangs together well enough and its quite interesting.

Leighton (20170) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2016
Bottle shared in London - cheers to Daniel. Pours clear amber with a frothy, off-white head. The aroma has some berries, brown bread, cherry. Light to medium sweet flavour with toasted grains, figs, berries, a little earth. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sweet finish with bready sugars, more berries. So so overall.

Koelschtrinker (19101) - Kln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAR 19, 2017
Minimal alkoholisch malziger Antrunk, dabei aber kaum s. Die Bitterkeit wirkt dumpf und bleibt konstant, monoton, sffig. 10/9/8/9//8

Ins Glas ergiet sich ein kastanien-rotes Bier mit geringem Schaum. Aroma wrzig, s, etwas eigenartig. Geschmack malzig fruchtig, fremdartige Gewrze. Mittelmgies Bier!

FatPhil (15384) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 22, 2015
330ml bottle (Pothouse, Tallinn)
Deep red, beige head. Smells of burning copper coins, some sharpness. Taste similar, more treacle. Palate fullish, mostly due to sweetness, carbonation quite high. Finish dry and a little numbing. Covers alcohol quite well. Drinks like 5% more than 7%.

bhensonb (14769) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 10, 2011
Bottle from the Folsom BevMo. Pours a clear dark ruddy copper/amber with a very transient beige head. Aroma is bready with a little hint of hop. Med + body. Flavor is slightly sweet, rather bready in a different way, and has some lightly spicy hop. Sort of like an amber ale, which is interesting for a lager. Worth a try. Might go well with food.
