Clear dark copper to brown color. Medium sized, lasting, very nice looking tan head. Sweet wort, berry, bready, sugary, also butter scent. Dry, bitter, malt dominated, butter,s ome fruit esters taste. Fairly dry and bitter finish, mixed with some cream in the aftertaste. Fairly soft and smooth mouthfeel. Soft fairly low bitterness.
Started out dry and bitter, but turned more sweet and smooth, I like it.
Draught at Bishops Arms Järntorget, Göteborg, on July 15, 2011
Clear copper color, dense tan head. Malty, bread, caramel, bitter, fruity taste. Bready bitter lingering aftertaste. Medium to moussy mouthfeel, medium high sort of dry bitterness. Chocolate, caramel, sweet, malty, fruity, gooseberry, hoppy scent.
Rather well balanced and drinkable, though for my taste it wouldn’t hurt to have it less bitter, sweeter and with a more full mouthfeel.
Draught at Gallows Bird, Espoo, Finland.rlgk (18843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 7, 2010
Clear reddish amber colour with tiny off-white head.

Nuts, wood, malt and mild hops in flavour.
Waterish and boring. Some astringent bitterness in aftertaste.
SBWF 2010. Amber color, offwhite head. Toffee aroma, nutty notes. Malty toffee flavor, nuts, hops and some metallic notes. Miksu (5052) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - SEP 28, 2010
Draugh at Old Brick’s Inn, Jyväskylä. Dark amber color with long lasting head. Very caramelly and nutty aroma and flavor with burnt sugar, resiny hops, marmelade like fruity esters and firm late bitterness. Chewy mouthfeel. I not fond of this kind of beers with lots of dark caramel. brokensail (16689) - Dublin, California, USA - SEP 10, 2010
A: The pour is a golden amber color with a finger’s worth of creamy white head.
S: A distinct butterscotch aroma along with lots of sweet caramel malts. Also a bit of a fruit note and sugar.
T: There is a strange fruitiness to this beer that I pick up right off the bat, yet I’m not quite able to identify what it is. Quite sweet and heavy on the caramel and toffee with notes of butter (diacetyl) and bread.
M: Medium in both body and carbonation.
D: Not something I’d really be interested in having again. Much to sweet and a very strange flavor that I’m not entirely sure I enjoyed.

On tap in a pint glass. The aroma is raisins, brown sugar, and burnt caramel. The flavor is sweet crystal malts, raisins and dark fruits, and a roasty burnt caramel finish. nearbeer (5662) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 10, 2009
Draft pint at Cooper’s Seafood, Scranton. Clear red-copper with a tidy little head. Aromas of cherry, apple and caramel. Flavor begins the same, picks up some toasted pecan, and then a nice dry twist of resin and peppery citrus on the finish. Light-medium body is slightly watery, smoothly carbonated and very drinkable.

On tap, not sure if it was the 6.8% version: Pours a transparent dark copper orange with a frothy, well-lacing off-white head. Aroma of grassy resiny English hops and some toasty pale maltiness. Starts with good fullness for the style and a mild sweetness with an assertive bittering hoppiness and some light citrus notes before a crisp, bittersweet finish. Very drinkable and well-balanced.

Draught at the Old Toad. Malt centered and fruity, with cereal grains, cherry, and gumballs. Nice hop finish; good balance. Not very exciting in this version, though. zach8270 (4021) - Henrietta, New York, USA - AUG 30, 2009
(draft @ The Old Toad - Rochester, NY) Copper in color with a thin tan head. Aroma is sweet and malty with some nice hints of caramel. Flavor is much the same. Caramel malts and a lightly bitter middle. Finish is a little odd and funky with some dry bitter hops. Not bad, but not great.
