Ruby red color, small steady off-white head. Lifht nose: hops, toasted malts. Palate is quite weak, dry roasted malty flavor. Overall dry, even metallic. Too watery to be actually good one.
Bottled. Reddish-brown with a small off-white head. Aroma is malty, light hoppy and with some alcohol. Flavor much the same, but with a caramel-note in addition. Medium body and a dry, hoppy finish. (060210) MiP (15973) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 11, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 29, 2009 Bottle. Aroma has a hint of malt, brown sugar and metal. Brown colour, unstable head. Flavour is at first sweet and malty, turning a bit watery and then malty again. The finish is actually quite nice. Carbonation is a bit high. 4 3 6 3 14

Bottle. Creamy off-white good mostly lasting head. Amber colour. Moderate malty and light hoppy very nice caramelliv flavor. Alas not as nice flavor. Light bitter strange notes. Short weird finish. Watery palate. Rune (13508) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 29, 2015
500ml bottle, many thanks to djoeye. Pours a two-finger thick, fawn-coloured head slowly fading over a bright mahogany coloured body. Firm lacework. Aromas of nuts, caramel and dark leaves. Brittle caramel flavours, mid-sweet, supported by leafy hops leading to a bittersweet malty ending. Medium bodied. Not bad at all (Tromsø 28.12.2015). Bov (13221) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JAN 24, 2003
bright red-brown colour with a big head, malt and earthy aroma, quite neutral flavour with a dry and rather unpleasant malty finish madsberg (11776) - Søborg, DENMARK - AUG 1, 2004
Bottled: Dark amber coloured. Clear. Brownish small head. Barnyard and metal in the aroma. No spices but a somewhat watery flavour. Light chocolate notes. Is watery in the end. Not what I expected. gnoff (10985) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 15, 2007
