Flaske 500ml anskaffet av djoeye og delt med ham og Rune på pauserommet 27 Aug 14. Mørk gylden. Høyt luftig skum som varer en stund. Forsiktig karamellaroma. Smaken forsterker karamell-kjøret. Svakt bitter ettersmak - men blir alt for søt. Rune (13003) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 12, 2014
500ml bottle kindly shared by djoeye. Mostly diminishing pearl white head. Fair lacing. Clear amber coloured body. Smell of caramel, earth and bread. Herbal hops together with brown malts to the taste, disturbing hints of vegetables lurking behind. Mild bitter endnotes. Soft on the swallow. Medium to thin bodied. So and so (Bokhuset with Finn and djoeye, Tromsø 10.09.2014). Borresteijn (7275) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 12, 2014
50cl Bottle from houseofbeer.nl. Clear golden amber colour, lighter than expected from a Polotmavy, white head. Aroma of sweet malts, red apples, yeast, some toffee, light grassy hops. Flavour is light to medium sweet, light malty, apples, pastry crust, just light fruity, some toffee, light yeasty, decent bitter grassy finish. Light-bodied. OK stuff. djoeye (4802) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 10, 2014
Good off white head. Light amber clear body. Some lacings. Toffee malts, bread, grain hops and ginger to the nose. Tastes bread, caramel malts, dry hops, light syrup, apple peel. Alright on palate. Nice enough overall. A polotmawy nearby amber lager.

James I hate you? Orange golden pour with white head. Dusty malt aromas. Flavors are musty, malt and boring. BlackHaddock (7416) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2014
Shared 500ml bottle at the Midlands Meet on 24th Aug 2014. Poured dark gold with a thin head. Aroma is soggy cornflakes complete with cardboard box and a weak caramel ester or two. The taste is light malts, with caramel hints in the flavour. I warmed to it compared to the other five in the tasting group.
