50 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden deep hazzlenut brown with a slowly collapsing white head. A bit dry cardboardish aroma. Smooth and roasted malty flavoured, light bitterness. A bit cardboardish flavoured to a nice fruity malt flavour. Mild bitterness into a medium dry and slight hoppy spiced finish. larsga (7625) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 22, 2008
Medium light brown head. Brown body with carbonation. Light malty roasty straw aroma, quite harmonic. Dry roasty caramelly taste with chocolatey notes. Clean, sharpish mouthfeel. Very dry. Harmonic, but a bit lacking in complexity. Dry roasty hoppy aftertaste. Quite nice, a bit boring. (0.33l bottle, Café Mephisto, Leipzig.) liinis (1775) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 17, 2008

Bottle brown, 330 ml
Appearance: Pours amber to brown, clear body with a very mild carbonation and slightly beige, metallic, off - white, initially medium, decreasing to small but firm head, very nice lacing and head though small stays still as a small froth for a very long time.
Aroma: Slightly woody - nutty with accents of black tea tan, generally very gentle, non intensive and non sophisticated, gentle hoppy bitterness and saltyness with regular, undistinctive woody - malty background, rather simple.
Flavour: From the first sip it is easy to denote a simmilarity to a Brown Ale or Premium Bitter, nice woody - nutty touch with quite strong bitterness and tannins similar to a black tea, chewy malt and highly astringent palate with bready - grainy and toasty to slightly roasty notes of barley malt, carmelized malt but lacking in a herbal hoppy nose so characteristic for the initially mentioned English Beer styles of that top fermented profile. Still noble, decent and worth to have a try and sample. Finish duration is moderate to long, lightly ashy with noble hoppyness.
Palate: Body is medium, texture is dry, carbonation on palate is soft to moderate, finish feel is highly astringent and slightly chalky with mineral touch.
330ml bottle at the Auerbachs Keller, Leipzig, 20th August 2008. Coppery brown with a small white head. Quite light aroma of nutty malt. Starts sweet on the tongue and then drys out considerably. Ok palate and quite a strong aftertaste. cgreb (422) - Marburg, GERMANY - AUG 22, 2008
on tap - dark amber beer with beige-white head. Malty flavour. Aroma is malt but not sweet. Little bit of metal. DSG (15119) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - AUG 8, 2008
(6/19/08) Draught at Sophie’n Eck in Berlin. Clear dark amber with a medium beige head. Aroma of toasted malt and light nutty hints. Sweetish malty flavor with some toasted bread, some caramel and a rather dry finish. Light-medium body, slightly watery. Not bad. Embrouille (2854) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 11, 2008
Bottled 50cl. It pours a clear dark amber beer with a very nicely lasting off white head. Lively carbonation. The nose is metallic. Malty taste with hints of chestnuts. Straw and lemon showing up. Buttery. A beer with a tall head which leaves a wonderful lace. Light bodied. Malt clearly dominates the taste. Metallic. Low bitterness. Unpleasant faint nutty finish. Dissapointing. ekstedt (6944) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 10, 2008
Draught (30 cl) at Sophien Eck, Berlin, Germany. Clear deep copper with medium beige head. Mild rosted aroma with some burnt sugar, along with dusty & earthy hops. Soft mouthfeel. Good balance, dry finish.
