tlind2 (1639) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 28, 2008
Draught. Copper color, creamy white head. Additional appearance points rewarded for the initial settling after the pour. Light malty aroma. Very smooth mouthfeel, slightly watery texture. Nice bitterness in the background.

shendrix (478) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 21, 2008
Not an overly complex brew, but a decent one. drawn on draft in Brussels. Poured a coppery golden color with a light head. Crisp mildly sweet maltiness zwith whitebread toastiness to it, tasting as if it had been drizzeled with honey. Very light grassy hops in the finish.

Draft in Finland. Creamy head, smooth going down, tasty but not overbearing. Note: had a bottle of the same in Ukraine. Tasted like two totally different beers. Go for the draft.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JUL 16, 2008
Draft. Copper in the glass with a creamy off-white head. The aroma is somewhat musty yet sweet with a large malt backing. The flavor finds caramel and honey with a hint of roast. Light in body.
