Reindeer Droppings has a thick, off-white head, a clear, bubbly, amber appearance, and narrow lacing left behind. The aroma is of sharp, yeasty, barnyard whiffs, with some sourdough bread and dried fruits. Taste is of the same elements, with zesty, horseblanket yeast, spiced holiday white bread, and mellow hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is low medium, and Reindeer Droppings finishes on the dry side.

Bottled. Bought at a beer specialty store here in Bratislava. One word: great! definitely a great English amber ale. Very bitter, hoppy and a tone of dark chocolate in the finish, which is the most dominant part, where all the characteristics of this ale are unleashed.
The aroma is quite low, does not promise anything, there is some malt and the raisins, but that is all.
The color however is beautiful! Copper brown and clear.
The hoppy aftertaste last quite long on the mouth.
Overall an excellent brew in my opinion in its price and quality category.

Bottle. Pours with rich head, most disappears quickly, but still it is persistent. Colour is clear golden-amber. Strong aroma of hops, also notable floral notes, a little earthy. Wonderfully bitter, with a minor sourness. Finish is delicately bitter with all aroma notes slowly disappearing, and urging you to next swig. Cuso (8950) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JAN 7, 2012

Shared wit h Strykzone via Facebook Chat. Poured from the 500 ml bottle, a dark ice tea color wit ha good foamy light tan head.. and really good lacing rings. Nose is caramel malts and grassy hops Medium in body with a smooth mouthfeel. Lots of flavors including ripe dark fruit and raisins. Good bitterness which carries over into the finish. Seems like an English bitter to me, but it is what it is and what it is good.

Ar: Light, sticky dough; deep, pronounced caramel; a bit of hay and lean, leafy hops. Ap: Gold-orange and clear; medium-small very light tan head with moderate retention, settling into an opera stage of medium bubbles with an outer ring of fine bubbles and little, long slashes of lacing on the glass sides. T: Punchy, fresh caramel; medium sweetness, very round; juicy orange-rind hops, resiny; bitterness is medium and clean; marmalade and black licorice; finish is pretty bitter, with citrus rind flavor. P: Medium body with medium carbonation; round yet always firm. O: I like this amber ale; it mixes characterful, fresh caramel malt flavor with a bright and very citrusy hop flavor, balancing them well and allowing a sweet yet brisk drinking experience. djd07 (16289) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 26, 2014
Bottle as shown. Pours a clear gold with a small frothy off white head that lasts. The aroma is strong pine and grapefruit. Medium mouthfeel with light resin, grapefruit and nice light bitter finish. Good
