rauchbier (3818) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2012 Re-rate - Bottled, from Asda Scunthorpe. Chestnut red, thin but lasting off white head andlow condition. Sweet grainy maltiness, brown sugar, some peppery spiciness and a low burnt fruit in the nose, quite soft in the mouth with an upfront earthy chalkiness giving way to a liquorice sweetness that with time becomes bitter once again, lingering licorice bitterness in the finish with an underlying earthiness. Initial Rating Date: 9/8/2003 - Bottle conditioned. Chestnut red, thin but lasting off white head and moderate condition. Raisin, tobacco, malt and hops in the nose. Quite unbalanced in the mouth with syrupy licorice and mouthfilling nuttiness that becomes coconutty towards the end. Some hops apparent in finish but nuts still dominate. (6-3-6-3-11 2.9)

Ungstrup (35103) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 22, 2006
A hazy deep red beer with a thin rim of off-white head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of berries and lighter ones of metal. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of berries, leading to a dry slightly woody end.

Clear deep amber - red beer. Residual white head. Smooth semi dry palate. Creamy malt with a little banana. Very mild, almost insipid, orange hops. Semi dry finish. Tastes like a standard English bitter turned up to 11.

Man ska definitivt inte g ver n fr det hr fermenterade vattnet. Men till kvarterskrogen kan det nd vara vrt. Hopdaeom Leviathan ligger fr ankar vid medelmttornas meredian och har strre existensvrde som mtpunkt n som njutningsmedel. Kan med frdel anvndas som vattenpass fr att avlsa balansen p andra l.

AndrewC (357) - Canterbury, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2010
Bottle conditioned. Dark mahogany brown colour. Quite high carbonation. Hang on Im going to go and decant it. Ah, thats much better. Smells of sour cherries. I wouldnt believe this was 6%. It tastes so smooth with no alcoholic burn at all. Theres plenty of malt in there with a burnt\toasted malt on the finish. In the front of the mouth theres nothing much going on. Theres some sweetness but not much; theres some red fruit but only a hint. Theres also not much hop going on either. It tastes like a toasted best bitter. Ive had this on cask a number of times over the years and it was much, much better. Im disappointed with this bottle.
