30 cL bottle. Pours deep orange to brown, clear and golden with a small tan head. Sweet caramel malty aroma, vague breadish and minor alcohol presence. Mild roasted malt flavoured, more pronounced caramel than in the aroma. Subdued and gentle bitterness into a nice malty and lingering finish.

Ungstrup (35891) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 10, 2002
An amber beer with a little head. It has a slightly sour aroma. The flavor is soft of a good malt blend and slightly prickling- I cannot taste the wheat which it should be brewed on. A very good beer - I definatly want to try this again.

oh6gdx (25965) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 20, 2007
Bottled. Deep reddish amber colour with mediumsized beige head. Aroma is quite sweet malts along with some slight hoppyness. Flavour is also strong on the malts with hops just mainly balancing it up. Some mild caramelly and papery notes also as it warms up.

Koelschtrinker (18731) - Kln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 21, 2011
Das Bier wird von der deutlich sen Brotigkeit angefhrt, die in weiten Teilen das mit Abstand strkste Aroma darstellt. Dass das Malz auch andere Facetten hat wird erst spt ersichtlich, zu s ist das Bier meist, um das Malz abseits der Brotigkeit durchzulassen. Immerhin ist eine leichte Hefenote erkannbar, von Zeit zu zeit hat man auch das Gefhl, dass eine gewisse Herbe vorhanden ist. Alles in allem aber dann doch zu s, auch wenn gerade dies im Nachgeschmack zu Schokoladenaromen fhrt. Gewhnungsbedrftig, aber nicht unbedingt schlecht! 9/8/9/11/9/9
