Bottle from Beautiful Beers, Bury St Edmunds. Drunk at home. Caramel brown, clear with a ring of off-white head. Toffee, sticky malt, and peanuts in the aroma with a bit of TCP. It's sweet but not overpoweringly so: there's an earthy hop balance in the latter half of the sip that lingers through to the caramelly, spicy aftertaste. Notes of fresh dates as the fallout disappears. A tough style to bring off at times but I enjoyed this. Jabic (713) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - OCT 21, 2017
Ar: Tangy overtone and biscuity and toasty malt layers; fairly clean, with caramel backbone. Ap: Amber and hazy; medium-small light tan head, with low retention, settling into a ring of foam and solid haze of cover. T: Clean malt backbone--mixture of toast, biscuit, and caramel; red apple and pineapple; very herbal hop flavor; high, fairly clean bitterness; finish is lingering toast. P: Medium body and steely, with high carbonation; finish is medium-dry. O: A bright showcase of malt and hops; very firmly bitter, but still quite malty; clean and steely, almost bracing in flavor; very nice! Iznogud (4499) - CROATIA - SEP 24, 2017

UPDATED: AUG 12, 2017 375ml bottle (Alus Celle, Riga) (5:4:6:4:13=3.2) martjoobolut (5234) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 11, 2017
Deep red, brief head. Sweet malty aroma, lagery. More serious taste, dry woody bitterness, and not-too-sweet maltiness. Palate full, smooth, a little sticky from sugars, pleasant carbonation. Finish has an almost peppery dryness on the tongue, and a resiny tingle - nice! Did try it with some yeast in, and it was mellower but lacked the bite of the clean pour.
Bottle (thanks fatphil). Pours red amber. Aroma is sweet, malt, dry, grainy. Flavor is sweet and bitter, malt, caramel, fruits, dryness. Finish is dry bitter. Overall: very good. Alusmamuts (2169) - LATVIA - AUG 8, 2017
Dark amber with small white head. Touch of sour aroma. Good bitterness lasting also in the aftertaste on dry sour background. Mvalence (55) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 4, 2017
