Pours with no head. Color is reddish copper, quite clear. Aroma is spicy and fresh and has red/amber ale like red berry mash, passion fruit, rose hip, some pepper. Palate is light and quite balanced. Taste follows the aroma and there’s again the red berry mash, rich, quite dark and sweet malty "base", port wine finish and slightly dry after taste, some bitter hops on the edges and particularly on the tip of the tongue as well as on lips. Fairly complex beer. I find nothing to complain really. It’s a nice amber ale. Tezminator (239) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 19, 2017
Aroma: caramel and floral notes. Taste has herbs and caramel, grass and faint pine. Nice. FatPhil (16102) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 22, 2017

Nice fruity hoppy aroma. Caramelly, but not too sticky, some apple. Some woodiness. Taste matches that well, slightly caramelly, but a nice dry woodiness too. Very nice drinkability, not saying 5.7% at all, it was one where we fought over the glass!
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2017 500ml bottle (thanks FatPhil). Deep dark amber color. Medium size, yellow-beige head, stays. Hops, caramel, spicy, bit buttery and grainy in aroma. Caramel, spicy humble hops, lemon lollipop, sweetish in taste. Feels thin, but at the same time nice medium bodied. Caramel and lemon candy in aftertaste. Very drinkable brew.

Ruby red beer with a beige foam. Some tropical fruits and caramel on the nose. Medium bodied. Quite a nice grassy harsh bitterness without being too overpowering. Some crispiness but stays on the more watery side on the spectrum. Some caramel, grassy and floral notes in the taste. Quite nice but somehow I feel this would benefit from a little thicker body. joe19612 (2929) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2016

Bottled (from Alko Prisma, Vaasa). Ambery brown colour with a mediumsized beige creamy head, which leaves some lace. Aroma is grass, some caramel, mild hay and earth as well as some floral notes. Flavour is caramel, mild citrus, some floral and mild ripe fruity notes to it. Grassy and quite bitter finish. RexTalionis (3763) - FINLAND - OCT 22, 2016
Bottle. Clear amber in color with an off-white head. Hard toffee, garden berries and sweetness in aroma. Light grassy bitter notes in taste. Bit dry mouthfeel. Bittersweet finish. ManVsBeer (10470) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2016
Bottle from B&M, Halifax. Amber-red, edging towards the latter, with an extremely thin head. Has a light berry-sweetness in both aroma and taste, slightly hoppy too, with a robust but drinkable texture.
