I love this beer. Its brown and creamy with a good head. Evident malt flavors with nice hop balance. I got it for about $10 a four pack and i will get it again.

Bottle - light copper with decent initial head. Good mouthfeel. Easy drinking, with fruity caramel and good bitter finish. Ok.

p0urmeac0ld0ne (310) - Merthyr Tydfil, WALES - DEC 8, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 8, 2017 Decent on cask but bottle is thin and quite tasteless in comparison. Rating from pre RateBeer days, taken from notes in my 1001 Beers book, where I gave this a 2/5.

klukas (361) - Rijeka, CROATIA - NOV 28, 2017
Enjoyed: Poured from a bottle into English pint glass.
Appearance: Dark copper colour, with medium short-lived head.
Aroma: Malt, caramel, spices (?).
Palate: Medium body; gentle carbonation.
Taste: Malt, caramel, bitter aftertaste.
Overall impression: Easy, drinkable, tasty, but nothing special or recognizable.

donalg (74) - Cork, IRELAND - NOV 25, 2017
Can from shop in Santa Ponca in Mallorca. Pours Amber colour with small white head, fairly good head retention. Nice sweet caramel malty aroma. Sweet malty flavour, all European hops, earthy, piney, not much citrus, a little watery. Quite a pleasant beer

Quick3Beers (1461) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 5, 2017
Pours a ruddy iced tea color from a tap. Smells sort of like cool weak tea as well, but the flavor is more like weak coffee, or like water run through a coffee maker with no grinds in it, just a hint of the baked on shmeg inside the machine. Not good.

Iznogud (4495) - CROATIA - OCT 2, 2017
Bottle, 500 ml from Vrutak, Zagreb. Pours copper with small white head. Malty, some fruit, spices, caramel, watery. Quite bland. Light to medium bodied.

hrabren (1667) - Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 24, 2017
Bottle from Lidl. Clear golden, small off-white head. Malts and light spicey, faint fruity hops. Sweet and fake. Light to medium body, soft to moderate carbonation, light hoppy finish. Average.

tekstr1der (501) - New Hampshire, USA - SEP 18, 2017
copper pour with lasting finger of off white foam (4.0). Aroma is bready malt and a touch of caramel (4.0). Flavor is similar with a slight sweetness (3.75). Smooth and balanced throughout (3.75), finishes ever so slightly dry. (3.75)
