pivo (2688) - GERMANY - NOV 10, 2004
Great name, from an average brew. Fruity cherry nose with some apricot. Auburn color and a flat scumy head. Toasted malt with some raisin or fig. Mouth filling dryness but a dull hop character. Thin body but lots of alcohol through the entire profile. Good for a British beer but still something missing...

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - MAY 8, 2007
Bottle. Amber colour with a nice fine head. Aroma of medicin and sweet malt. Also flavour of medicin, malt and hints of caramel. Ends up with a sweet malty finish.

Jeppe (2634) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - APR 17, 2005
Hazy amber color, small head. Sweet malt and grass aroma with some spices and anise hints. Mostly sweet and spicy flavor with liquorice notes. Quite full and different.

YogiBeera (2569) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 2, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2005 Dark orange - brown color. Spare head. Cherry band aid nose. Hoppy and grassy taste, medium lasting - kind of thin bodied. RERATE: 7;3;4;2;9 Hazy orange, no head, liveley carbonation. Banana and vanilly nose, very doughy, sweet yeast. Suprisingly strong alcohol, cinnamon and pepper taste but the bad thing seems to be an overdose of nutmeg which lays over you tongue and leaves a long lasting terrible aftertaste.

Mungo (2470) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2006
BCA (from Bitter virtue). Rich malty toffee aromas. Some very light hops apparent in the flavour despite this only fairly sweet. There wasnt that much of interest here.

En let spritet, meget fyldig og tyk øl. En spændende øl som er nem at drikke, men ikke speciel

Spiesy (2337) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - MAY 1, 2003
Rusty brown colour with absolutely no head. Sweet floural aroma. The taste was sweet initially, then sour, then followed by bitter, but in the end all three were dominated by alcohol. I like strong beers like the rest of you freaks, but his was just to obvious it didn't make for pleasant drinking. Finally it had a savory finish to the palate.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 25, 2006
Poured from the bottle (Wobble in a Bottle), a very dark orange/ruby coolour with no head. A strong tangy hop aroma with some sweet maltiness in the background. An enjoyable sourness through the mouth, imparting citrus flavours and a little bit of sweet maltiness. Quite vinuous at that strength of course, warm and spicey, with a lingering tingly and bitter finish on the tongue. Will save my other bottle for Christmas.

JonMoore (2067) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2006
Bottle conditioned. Hazy deep amber colour with a slim off-white head. Aroma has malt, raisins, brown sugar and a touch of alcohol. Flavours are sweet malt, caramel, some dark fruit and a nice bitter finish. Full bodied, slightly carbonated, with some late warming alcohol. Very good.

Get thee in my throat wee timous beastie! Quite unlike anything I had expected from a ruby ale but such a pity the bottle was so small as I could have gone on drinking this for hours. I was left with a lovely glow in my stomach as this beer settled and made love to everything around it. The alcohol content should not disturb as it isn’t really a factor where taste is concerned as the orange, and even blackcurrant initial taste warms the tongue and lingers healthily around the back of the throat. A real treat, especially here in New Zealand.
