DraftDodger (1357) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 5, 2015
Copenhagen 5/12 2015. 12 oz (around 35 cl) bottle from Skjold Burne. Strange label with a lot of Hill tops and futuristic writing hollering "Red Hook". Pours hazy golden orange with white head. Settles as thin layer of foam. Lacing on the side of the glass. Sweet aroma of caramel and toffee. Sort of skunky. Low carbonation and creamy palate. Taste is overwhelmingly sweet. Caramel and sugary toffee. Aftertaste is a lingering sweetness. Way too sweet for me I am afraid.

veceo (1362) - Pula, CROATIA, - NOV 21, 2015
Honey/amber color, small white head. Aroma is malty heavy. Taste is also malty heavy and full of sweetness, fruity hoppiness but no bitterness... Anywhere. Medium body, soft carbonation. Weird. It appears this doesnt age well.
