pivnizub (10768) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - MAR 11, 2009
Bottle: Light amber coloured, visible carbonation, stable small creamy layer; sweetish fruity-malty nose with a nutty tinge and a faint touch of spicy hops; light to moderate sweet-bitter flavour, light to medium bodied; slightly lingering sweetish-bitter finish. Not bad, but a bit too sweet..........

very good ale. Delicious hops. good color and a good white foamy head. Smoky bar Oldenburg in Madrid: no idea of the aroma.

KyotoLefty (10604) - Kyoto, JAPAN - FEB 1, 2009
Dark Amber color. Medium head. Good hoppy aroma with lots of fruit and decent malt as well. Rather sweet flavor, more than usual for the type. Good fruit and hops as well, though. A touch of honey and a bit nutty too. Not as dry as the good English types. Some citrus as well. Good hop finish, quite bitter. Really good, though a touch below the top stuff.

TrefwoordPunk (1289) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JAN 18, 2009
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a reddish copper, with a small white head and an aroma of fresh malts and caramelly malts. The taste is mainly hoppy and mildly sweet. I really liked this

beeR (61) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 3, 2008
Draught at Pub 38 (Malgrate, Lecco). Huge white and lasting head, deep and clear amber colour. Sweeter than expected, both aroma and flavor. Caramel and malty sweetness in the nose, fruity and just hins of hops. The flavor is even sweeter, too much for me, caramel and buttery. Medium body and a spicy but creamy mothfeel.

Borresteijn (7411) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 20, 2008
Bottle @ Café Gollem. Amber colour, white head. Aroma of caramel, hops and malts. Flavour is dry, caramel, a little metallic, spicy, soft bitter finish. A bit creamy mouthfeel. OK amber.
