lokis333 (417) - Birai, LITHUANIA - MAY 24, 2016
Clear copper color with small tan foam. aromas of fresh ground malt, dusty flour, grains and hay. Palate, full body, thick-ish texture and sweet sugary finish. Taste, sweet of malt, biscuits and grains (simple). Overall, sticky, sickly sweet, not esiest beer, nice but not for me.

Nate (4247) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 3, 2008
From bottle. Nice toffee-caramel sweet malt aroma, light diacetyl, with some grassy fruity hops. Tea. Nice smooth character. Medium amber-brown clear with a bit of haze, topped with an off-white lacing thin head. Medium watery body with medium-heavy carbonation. Starts fairly sweet with apple skin, light grainy tea, caramel with a bit of toffee and butter. Watery with a bit of acidity. Light grassy-grainy bitterness comes in at the finish, with a smooth nutty bitter after. Not a bad bitter, but maybe a bit too carbonated. Fairly clean.

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - NOV 27, 2008
Clear light brown pour with amber highlights and nearly no head. Aroma of light fruit, light toasted malt and a touch of hops and earthiness. Flavor starts out nice enough, including all of the elements from the aroma. But then I pick up a strange rubbery element that always comes through for me in this style. I don’t know why I continue to try them, since I obviously have something weird going on with my taste buds.

ManVsBeer (8817) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2012
Copper-brown in colour with a strong aftertaste, although the strength is hidden somewhat by the fruity sweet flavours which are also evident in its aroma.

Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 14, 2007
500 ml bottle. Hazy dark amber colour. An extremely coarse off-white head. Rich caramelly aroma and slightly oily. Peppery and appley. Malt flavour is slightly off, but is quite rich. There is a hint of oxidization. Fig-like flavours. A little hop bitterness in the finish, but mostly watery aftertaste except for perhaps a little more of the figs. Overall not very interesting, even a little dull.

larsga (7334) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 14, 2007
Small white coarse head. Hazy orange-red body with light carbonation. Oily caramel and perfume aroma. Roasty caramel taste with resiny notes. Oily, dead mouthfeel. Vague, resiny aftertaste. Its OK, but boring. (0.5l bottle.)

The aroma is buttery and malty with toffee and hops. The appearance is hazy amber with a thin head. The flavor is bitter and much like the aroma. The palate is slick. Overall its decent.
