Otje (678) - Veendam, - DEC 3, 2010
Amber, small hea and some lacing on the glass. Bit fruity and malty nose. Bit sweet and bitter in taste, more fruity near the finish. Still easy going beer for its bitterness and boozy character

nephirem (328) - CROATIA - JAN 8, 2017
Bottle, 0.5l. Pours cloudy copper body with small slightly off-white head. Smell is malty sweet, herbal with lots of caramel and toffee. Medium body, softly carbonated. Slightly creamy texture. Pleasantly bitter with subtle malty sweetness. Aroma of yeast, malts, caramel and toffee. Herbal, floral. Touch of honey. Traces of metal on the tongue during the finish. Finish itself is a bit dry. Overall, good. Nothing exceptional, but good nonetheless.

Pours dark copper. Foamy head that fades in seconds. It has a soft malty aroma , ligtly carbonated, caramel dark fruits and mild toffee on the taste . It’s a nice simple ale, but for 5.1 % i was expecting it to have a stronger taste.

rstk (13) - - OCT 30, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2016 Malt, caramel, floral hoppy aroma, pear-drops, some smoked and spicy notes, particularly smoked plums. Beautiful deep amber colour with frothy creamy white head. Mildly bitter, light sour notes in the aftertaste. Medium body with soft carbonation. Overall, a decent ESB, nice alternative for dull mass-market bitters. Classic brew, which tastes as good, as it looks.

4/10/16 bottle at home. Great look and smell. Splendid head. Biscuity and malty but not altogether in a nice way. Bit too dry on the palate ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
