Bottle at Chriso Snow Tasting, thanks to Leighton (didn’t even need to refer to notes to suss that one!), 20/01/13.
Lightly hazed chestnut brown with a light tan head that clears to the edge as bubbles leaving a film in the centre. It looks good - can only go one way form here tho’ !!!
Nose is malt, brown rye bread, burnt cake mix.
Taste is sweet sugars, rye, cake mix, brown sugars, sweet, did I mention sugars and sweet ?
Light to medium in body, soft carbonation, sweet in the slightly dry finish.

Bottle at the ChrisO Snow Tasting, London - one of the beverages I brought. Pours clear, red-brown with a filmy cream head. Sugary cardboard aroma, some caramel. Huge sweet flavor with paper, brown bread, toffee. Light bodied with average carbonation. Sugary finish with notes of brown sugar and bread. Not great. harrisoni (19165) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2013

Sweet Malzbier aroma.
Hazy chestnut offwhite creamy head
Sweet malt sugar, light metallic roast. Light body, sticky sweet but with a dry caramel finish. Well it’s nourishing I guess. hirigalzkar (3242) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 23, 2012
Bottle. Pours coke-brown with a off white head. Malt and unfinished yeast in aroma. Chocolate, something a bit dry and lots of sugar in taste. Too carbonated.

Bottle 33cl. A dark red-brown colour with a small off-white head. An aroma of malt and caramel. The taste is heavy sweet. A light body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation and a short light malty finish. OK for the style HenrikSoegaard (14448) - Randers, DENMARK - AUG 12, 2011
