Dark copper with a medium pale head. Aroma is fruity hops and caramel malts, pretty good and promising. Taste is a bit watery and not as good as the aroma promises. Malts and fresh hops, yet a bit too thin. Okay beer anyways. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a chestnut amber with an off white head. Nose is big on biscuit malt, rye, cereal, brambles, and orange rind. Medium carbonation. Extremely smooth beer, probably from the oats. Biscuit malt and caramel in the taste first with a blast of orange peel and berries in the roof of the mouth. Medium dry bitter finish. Lovely.

Bottle. Hazy & Ruby-red in colour. Rich, malty full-flavoured ale. Very malty; caramel, toffee. Fruity; orange-citrus, grapefruit, banana? Balanced with zesty, spicy, peppery hops. Sweetish with medium dry finish. Very drinkable. Nice beer! (2008)

lokis333 (489) - Biržai, LITHUANIA - SEP 15, 2016
Clear deep amber color with lively tan foam. Aromas of chewing gum, light mint, caramel and marzipan with light undertones of coffee and hops. Palate, medium to light body with smooth texture and is rather flat leaving little sweet finish. Taste is sweet of caramel and biscuit malts with light sweet touch of hops. Overall, nice simple with pleasant aromas but not too overly exciting for me.

nybol (1765) - DENMARK - JUN 4, 2016
En meget nøddeagtig smag, med en svag smag af bitterhed og sødme. Den nøddeagtige smag varer ved i eftersmagen.

Evilkniamhel (941) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 16, 2016
Bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours clear brown with a foamy beige head. Aromas of roasted malts, hazelnuts, and resin. Full bodied on the palate, with a bit of toffee sweetness.

Good mix of malty caramel flavors and a subtle and crispy hop finish in the aftertaste.

A smooth taste of caramel and some hops. Not too bitter, has tones of fruit and toast. A very nice beer to drink, feels smooth in your mouth.

Lovely amber color with a fine off white head. Berry fruity, toffee and a nice hoppy feeling in the nose. Nice body and a fine carbonation. Well balanced sweetness and bitterness. Berry fruity, herbal, toffee, bready and a nice hoppy touch in the flavor. Lovely tasty ale!
