Хорош браун эль, очень приятен. Не знаю как по цене, но в целом весьма и весьма. Khosrove (87) - LATVIA - APR 25, 2017
A simple and pleasant brown ale. Quite malty and bready. Sweet but not overwhelmingly. phfyysik (1249) - Tartu, ESTONIA - JAN 4, 2017
Pours brown with medium off-white head. Aroma is fruts, citrus, caramel, toffee, bread, oily notes. Taste is oily, creamy, caramel, bread, some fruits, citrus, nuts. Nice beer! larsga (7508) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 19, 2015
Big beige head. Clear brown body with strong carbonation. Earthy
dusty rye aroma with sugary mineraly notes. Dryish roasty mineraly
taste with earthy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel.
Dry-acidic earthy roasty bubblegum aftertaste with mineraly caramelly
mealy notes. Mealy flavour lingers. Interesting. It’s drinkable,
very different, but harmonic. The mealiness is really the biggest
issue. (0.5l bottle, from somewhere in Riga.) lobs_ols (452) - LATVIA - OCT 30, 2014
Opaque dark brown with a strong beige head. Roasted malt, bread, slight hint of sour. Maybe some nuts, not sure. Lovely bready-biscuity flavour with a balanced bitterness. Warming bitter and roasted malt finish. This is a mighty fine autumn beer.
ramboraffe (2240) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 6, 2014
500 ml bottle. Hazy brown with tanned head. Smell is roasted malt and bitter hops. Taste is bitter hops and bread and roasted malt. Dry. lyfre (4) - Lycksele, SWEDEN - MAY 3, 2014 does not count
Pours nice and clear with about 1 finger of slightly brown foam. Color is dark brown with a tint of red. On the nose you get some caramel, bread, hazelnuts and slight vanilla. When you get it in your mouth it has a medium body and dry modest bitterness. You get a lot of bread and roasted malts flavors in the aftertaste. A nice bitter that would go well with some rustic food. FatPhil (15963) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 18, 2014
Tap (ALEhouse, Riga)Marduk (7583) - Reval, ESTONIA - JAN 17, 2014
Messy mash, dirty but grainy aroma. Big malty body, a touch dusty, some husks. Simple but decent brown bitter.
Tap. Hazy chestnut color. Small size, off-white head, stays. Not much of aroma, but caramel and sourness are detectable. Caramel, grains, toffee, mild minerals in taste. Nice roasty bitter aftertaste. It doesn’t feel fresh. Maybe slightly gone off. Rune (12587) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 11, 2014
Thanks to Elisabeth and Stefan for sharing this one, 500ml bottle airborne from Riga. Nice label design/artwork. Cloudy dark orange coloured body topped by a low grey head. Minimal lacing. Modest aroma of nuts, earth-like malts, mid-sweet. Brown malty flavours with a caramel scent supported by a touch of herbal hops. Yeasty hints to a malt-fruity ending – a bit jam like. Medium minus bodied. Alright, not more (session in Tromsø 09.01.2014).
