En noget humlet øl. Den smager meget pilsner-agtigt, men med lidt mere krop/fylde.

gripweed57 (2461) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - JUN 26, 2017
From old tasting notes. Clear amber orange color witha medium beige head. Spicy toasted malt nose hints at coconut. Foretaste is bittersweet and complex. Midtaste is tart and effervescent. Finish and aftertaste are bitter and dry.

Bottle - light golden tan, large off white head with high carbonation. Good aroma, ok mouthfeel, easy drinking and pleasant tasting.

hrabren (1186) - Zagreb, CROATIA - FEB 19, 2017
Bottle from Vrutak, Zagreb. Beer tasting at Brnja’s place. Thanks. Clear golden to light amber, small lasting off-white head. Faint caramel, faint hops, light perfumed. Light toasty, sweetish. Light body, medium carbonation. Light finish. Useless.

john44 (3101) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2017
Bottle. Golden in colour. Sweet Malty; caramel, toffee, toasted malts. Quite Fruity (apple, citrus-orange). Some, but little, hops. Sweet throughout. Bitter-sweet finish ending dry. A bit disappointing! (2014-10-13)

ogivlado (7824) - Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 30, 2016
Bottled 500ml. -from Vrutak Zagreb. Darker golden coloured, minimal white head, mild caramel nose. Sweet malty, caramel, herbal hops, mild fruity and again notes of caramel in the finish. Drinkable but thin. "Just to brew something" beer.

vinivini (2416) - Gomel, BELARUS - NOV 11, 2016
Pale amber, medium white head clutching at glassware walls. Thick lacing after the froth has broken down. Malty aroma. Candy, caramel, Fruity esters, a minimal phenolic note. Light to medium body. The flavour is malty as well. Caramel, candy, esters. Floral hops deliver light bitterness. Hoppy finish & aftertaste. Generally not my model of the style still enjoyable enough.

I_LUV_BEER (231) - - NOV 8, 2016
Served in a stemmed tulip from a 500ml bottle. Pours deep golden amber colour with a thick off-white head, leaving nice lacing in the glass. Aroma is caramel, grass, biscuity notes. Taste is caramel, grass, slightly nutty, bitter-sweet with a subtle bitter finish. Medium body with medium carbonation. Very solid, nicely balanced, enjoyable and moreish brew!

ShivanDragon (4120) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - AUG 12, 2016
bottle, 500ml, 4.9% from the Ringwood Brewery shop, pours bright caramel/copper with a white head. Aroma of malts, caramel, yeast, quite firm. Taste quite firm steady malty, caramel, smooth, slick, some powdery, medium body,
