Oranje koper kleur met een goede kraag. Ruikt zoetig, mout, ijzer. Smaakt zoetig, karamel, mout. drjay44 (3829) - Salida, Colorado, USA - OCT 27, 2016
12 oz. bottle. BBD 02.09.17. 5.6% ABV per the label, so a different recipe. Pours a medium, well retained dark ivory body,, over a clear copper (SRM 17) body........nose is toasted malts with biscuit, cracker, bread,j hints of toffee/caramel, no hops, balance to the malts......taste is mildly hints of sweetness to start, with light toffee/caramel tones, moderate toasted malts with Vienna, Munich tones, becoming dry with mild hop bitterness, balance to the malts.......mouth feel , light of medium body, no alcohol, light carbonation. This is slightly sweeter than typical for the style, but has appropriate malt complexity. It is not a favorite style of mine, but is nicely done.

4 oz pour on draft at Owen’s Ordinary. Clear ruby amber with off-white head. Aromas of malt and caramel. Tastes of malt, caramel, dark fruit. Medium body with a dry finish. TAR (2787) - Blue Ridge Mountains, North Carolina, USA - OCT 16, 2016
Enjoy by date: Jan. 19, 2017. Clear rust. Dirty-white head shows good retention. Very dull aroma of wet bread, Red Delicious apple, rock candy, concord grape jelly, and a hint of DMS and oxidation. Soft carbonation. Quite fruity initially, with fuzzy DMS colliding with a red apple and starchy, wet paper dullness. Poorly extracted malt is notably flabby and structureless, with its incessant sugars weighing the body down and overshadowing any body-aiding textures. Alcohol generates a moderate sting, as the sugars steadily heighten to create a medicinal effect at the swallow. Fatiguing sugars contribute to a very wet and dully malty finish, with notes of maple sugar and applesauce lingering alongside a hint of DMS. It really doesn’t get much more uninspired than this. Very syrupy-sweet as if they dumped malt extract into the bottle, and it has its share of fermentation defects. There’s essentially nothing discernible hopwise, and the sugars become tiresome after a single gulp. Drain pour.

Bottle at home been hitting the pumpkins and oktoberfests as best I can recently. Dark Amber pour. Nose is caramel and malty. Tastes of malt, cereal, caramel and some zucchini. Semi sweet light watery palate. Toasted finish. Frank (4236) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 10, 2016
This is one of the really brown American takes on the style and that’s okay. This one is maybe slightly hazed w/ a thin head of mixed size bubbles. There is a lot of caramel character here but it never quite crosses the line into being way too sweet and it is a bit syrupy and heavy but still pretty drinkable. It finishes pretty clean w/ some lingering sugar on the tongue and just a bit of earthy bitterness. I would not want to drink this all day but one is pleasant enough. jamaty (2255) - Madrid, SPAIN - OCT 3, 2016

330ml bottle. Fine aroma of caramel and yeasts. Amber colour with big creamy head. Very light taste, not too much bubles, feel little bit of caramel and bread. from start to finnish lightly bitter flavour, after swallowing still caramel on mouth.
Overall: Nice drinkability, there is maybe a lot of caramel flavours, but still good beer.
