Amber like colour with a normal head. Smells a bit weird. Taste makes up for the smell though. Mouthfeel is very nice, body is also nice. TBone (17439) - Pori, FINLAND - MAY 15, 2011

Ruby color, small beige head, lace. Berryish, metallic nose. Medium-bodied. Flavor is similar to nose: berryish (cranberries, strawsberries) with metallic notes. Leffe-like brew, not too bad.
Originally started to benefit the success of the popularity of Speciale Belge and amber beers in general in the Netherlands. Amber colour, nice creamy head. Aroma of caramel, (toasted) malts and sweet fruits. Taste caramel, malts, slight smoky flavour. Slight bitterness. From the generic amber beers this just might be the best one, but it’s still a generic amber beer.

Bottle 0,3ltr: Clear amber coloured brew with an fruity and caramel taste. Once brewed at Bavaria now at Koningshoeven, but technically the same. Countbeer (6592) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - DEC 3, 2010
White airy head on top of a dark amber to brown colored beer.
Smell toasted malts, caramel, spices, fruits, sweets and some hops.
Taste is an ok mix of toasted malts, caramel, sweets, hops, spices and some dark fruits.

30cl bottle. Amber colour with a white head. Flavour is malty and fruity with very little bitterness. Fairly drinkable in the summer. dutchbeerpages (2439) - Wilnis, NETHERLANDS - JUL 14, 2010
Is it possible to taste bacon or ham in a beer? This might be the first one. Thin, not very pretty and not with much spark. Forgettable dEnk (4200) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - APR 5, 2010
Amber pour, medium slightly tanned head.
Aroma of sweaty fruit and grains.
Flavour is quite watery and sweet caramel with faint fruit.
Uninteresting beer. yngwie (17038) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 25, 2010
Bottle. This one pours a clear, dark golden body under a small, creamy, off-white colored head. Decent aroma, syrupy fruityness and caramel. Maybe a bit on the sweetish side. Syrupy and fruity flavor too, some caramel and hops, not much bitterness. Low on bitterness in the finish too. Maybe this style of beer doesn’t need much bitterness, but I don’t think there’s sufficient in this one. Medium body with pleasant carbonation. An easy drinking beer, but a bit on the sweet side I think. 091016 gunnfryd (14820) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 18, 2010
