TBone (16441) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 2, 2006
Bottled, alc. 5.8% (BB 08/2006)
Copper brown, decent creamy white head, some lace. Metallic malty, toffeeish aroma, some skunky hops somewhere there. Toffee malty is also the flavor with woody touch. In the finish some Kentish hops, which leaves semi-sweet, hoppy aftertaste. Decent EPA:

thebeertourist (5188) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 28, 2006
Bottle. Clear amber with a big white head. Malty aroma. Flavours are rather more bitter though well-balanced by sweet maltiness with hints of pepper. Not bad.

SHIG (4930) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - JUL 11, 2006
Light brown in color with a light brown creamy head. Sweet grassy pungent smell. Sour initial flavor gave way to a sweet malt.
