A Mes rate: bottle at the ever brilliant Chris O’s Pre GBBF Extravaganza.DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2009
Amber colour with a thin off white head. Cardboard and vefgetable aroma. Similar flavour but the malt underneath is decent enough. Dull but tolerable.
Bottle at the legend of Chriso’s pre GBBF09 Tasting. Alround rating: Sweet malty caramel, bit of wert, and light white toast, but a small tartness comes through to balance slightly but ultimity it fails.

At Chriso’s pre GBBF Shindig ’09. Copper with a thick white head. Sweet toasty swimming pool malt aroma. Taste was flat and flaccid, a disappointment after the interesting aroma. Seemed to lack a satisfactory finish somehow. liinis (1791) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 9, 2008

Color:light brown transparent nice head but didn’t lasted long time. fizzy
Scent:sweet malts. Taste:There is some tiny hints about hops but sweet toffee like malts are more present,bread wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 26, 2008
A spongy, cream-coloured head rests on a clear, light red body. Biscuity, toffee-ish malts feel muted alongside faint herbal hops. Likewise, a dull sweetness yeilds to a loose, brackish finish. The occasionally sticky texture and medium body seem a size too large.
Dorqui (2296) - Brescia, ITALY - DEC 31, 2007
Timid example; malty, but lacking grace and assertiveness.
50cl can, best before 05/2008.
Bottled 0,50L [Hartwall Oktoberfest III].
Creamy and compact head of medium resistance. Orange clearly color with branch reflex, good and fine fizz. Light and rather dry aroma with notes of wood and toasts dampen cereals. Mostly bitter taste with light alcoholic content. A lot watery final of short persistence.
Thanks to mabjork for this beer.
