FatPhil (17334) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 11, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2009 500ml bottle (K-Market)
Deep red, brief head. Dry sweet hoppy aroma. Not as sweet as most reds, good crisp hoppy body. Pleasant carbonation. Long hoppy finish. Very solid - there is even a touch of burntness in there. Would like this as a real ale, I am sure.
Non-rerate: Had a less fresh one, and is wasn’t quite as good.(7:4:7:3:13=3.4) Leaving rating alone.

Bottle from Oddbins, pours like it says, a ruby red with a smallish head...dominated by berry fruits with some background maltiness...slips down a treat

AndrewC (379) - Canterbury, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2008
500ml bottle. Smells of candy and mineralised water. Soft mouth feel. Subtle carbonation. Toasty sugar and candy flavours dominate. This was one of the best bottle beers I’ve ever had.

3.3
Rune (13723) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 19, 2008
500ml bottle picked up at OddBins, Oxford. Served lightly chilled at home. Inviting smell of toffee malt. Flavour has got some layers of medium sweet malts supported by dark spices and ending with a bitter note. Clear and good looking rusty brown body under a thin, but lasting, off-white head. Nice laceworks on the glass. Medium bodied (Tromsø, 18.07.2008).
