Can. Clear amber, decent white head. Soft hoppy aroma, lots of malty motes. Well balanced, kind of hop centric. A simple, easy drinking ale. likeatrainwreck (572) - Stockport, Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2017
Solid session red ale. Biscuity, caramel malt, good hop presence. Very drinkable. Good stuff. cervmagpt (901) - PORTUGAL - MAR 21, 2017

PALATE: medium-low body with medium-low carbonation. OVERALL: a red ale-style beer with a nicer hop presence. Borkowski (57) - POLAND - MAR 17, 2017
aroma of cytrus, lime, ceylon tea. Red-orange coloured beer, with taste of strong black tea with a lot of sugar. Not bad

Ámbar oscuro con abundante cabeza de espuma de larga retención; aromas a caramelo, malta tostada, esteres frutales y flores; entrada ligera, refrescante con bajo amargor al inicio del trago; cuerpo medio ligero y correcta carbonatación, notas a cereal y lúpulo, corto retrogusto maltoso, cerveza correcta y fácil de beber. sokuzs1 (1577) - POLAND - MAR 12, 2017
Aroma: black tea with sugar, caramel, some citrus
Taste: heavy sweet, medium bitter, caramel, black tea’ish, cane sugar, citrus, resin NORSAND (115) - Lillestrøm, NORWAY - FEB 23, 2017
(Bottled exactly 14 days ago, so essentially super fresh)
Pours reddish-brown with a lasting head.
Nose: A dryish hoppy character (resin and pollen rather than fruity citrus) and some malt sweetness, quite well balanced. As the beer heats up and the glass empties a sweaty, not too pleasant aroma appears.
Taste: More of the same. It’s the hops which dominate the arrival, with the maltiness coming through in the mid palate. Again the hops is not very fruity but rather of a "dry" type. The malt tastes medium deep/dark/brown, meaning barley and dry caramel notes. Medium bodied with medium rich carbonation. The sweetness from the malt does shine through in the finish and the bitter-sweet aftertaste though, making this a well orchestrated and balanced taste experience. On the negative side one might say that there is not much complexity here, but it’s a well made, well balanced and drinkable beer, in the crossroads between hoppy vs. malt driven and dry vs. fruity vs. sweet beer styles. michael_bb (145) - Barcelona, SPAIN - FEB 5, 2017
33cl can. Lively amber colour and 1inch head that doesn’t last too long. Typical aroma for an amber ale, not too strong. A hoppy touch at first that gets weaker after a while. The taste is not too special but it leaves a nice long finish rferrey (158) - Huelva, SPAIN - FEB 2, 2017
Amber muy bien balanceada, bastante lupulo, algo de cafe, final que amarguea, apta para todos pero a la vez muy completa
