Sampled draught in BiržaiOakes (19384) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 23, 2004
Clear reddish amber colour. Fruity, yet clean. Medium bodied with low-medium bitterness. Very drinkable considering it’s size, but I would have liked some more flavour.
Bright copper colour. Sweet, toffeeish, with a sugary aroma. Hard, minerally body with caramelly notes. Sweet, slightly wet finish. Tmoney99 (15119) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 12, 2007
Bottle from Belmont Party. Poured a clear brown color with an average frothy off-white head that diminished slowly with fair lacing. Moderate fruity malt and alcohol aroma. Medium body. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of short duration. Drinkable high alcohol brew. BeerandBlues2 (14018) - Escondido, California, USA - MAR 23, 2009
Bottle. Pours hazy amber with a small, rocky, white head, somewhat lasting with fair lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (cookie, caramel, toffee, nutty), average hop (flowers, grass), average yeast (earth, broth) with notes of date, apple, and cola. Medium bodied, slick texture, lively carbonation, and a chalky finish. Average duration, moderate sweetness, light acidity and bitterness. alexsdad06 (11223) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - NOV 19, 2016
Bottle picked up locally from recent notes. Pours a mostly clear golden amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, caramel, again like some of their other beers almost candied sweet, musty character that doesn’t help, oxidation, just nothing very good here.

Killearn Liquors, Tallahassee, Fl - 500 ml bottle. Dark orange to light copper pour with a wisly off-white head, quite thin. Sweet aroma, hints of caramel and candied sugar and baked brown bread - nice. Sweetness carries over to the flavor with some toffee notes, day old coffee and a hint of chocolate. Back end of alcohol with a slight burn. Has some winter warming - brandy-like qualities. Mouthfeel just a tad too thin for the style but still a decent rib sticking ale, great for winter drinking.

Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing.
Body is clear medium amber.
Aroma is lightly malty (grain, cookie), lightly hoppy (flowers), with a light note of peach.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter, slightly husky.
Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic.
Not much to counteract the sweetness, but at least a little cleaner and fuller tasting than the Baro Trad. Not bad. Like a premium lager with some color in its cheeks. Braudog (6900) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - MAR 17, 2006
Bottle: Poured a true amber with a thin head. Slightly burnt caramel aroma. The flavor is thickly sugared, molasses and cooked sugar ... you can taste the alcohol. Quite a hefty brew. obguthr (6827) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - SEP 15, 2017
Toffee, dates, and kibble nose. Cloudy rust, thin yellow head. Smoky dates and caramel. Light body, easy carbonation. I don't get the low ratings, this is nice. Patrickctenchi (6808) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - SEP 18, 2013
Cloudy, brown with an ice-tea foam top.
Bready, oxidized....caramel aroma.
Sweet, stale, baked bread....old taste.
Nutty, wooden and thick.
Not good...very unpleasant.
