500ml Bottle - Copper coloured with a large white head. Fresh,yeasty and malty aroma with a hint of tea. Malty and moderately bitter taste with tea also being detected along with a yeasty element. The bitterness does not last too long but a fairly pleasant finish lingers. Not bad at all and quite a nice surprise. FatPhil (17334) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 31, 2008

Deep copper orange, healthy tight head. Baked bread aroma, a bit fruity - raisins. Slight hint of alcohol (drunk at room temperature, so that’s less surprising). Fairly soft palate. Grainy and buttery, a little bit woody. Sweet spiciness too, almost peppery. Long woody finish. Quite sophisticated beer, covers the alcohol pretty well. Worth hunting out, very good nutty lager.
Aroma: caramel and malt.
Taste: light to moderate sweetness and light bitterness.
Flavour: malt, caramel, some grassy hops, light metal notes.

UPDATED: DEC 11, 2015 BOTTLE 50 CL. Clear amber-red, beige head. Pretty decent caramel and malty aroma, a hint of bread. The taste is simple - caramel sweetness, a touch of malt, a bit thin in the middle (not watery though). The finish is moderately bitter with notes of grassy hops and alcohol. Not bad - a poor man’s heller bock. GTAEgeek (2497) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - AUG 22, 2010
Bottle in Moscow, Russia. Pours a deep, clear amber color with a medium white head. It leaves a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is very malty, with some notes of corn, pine hops, and some slight, tart fruits. The flavor is mostly sweet with an unpleasant sour and bitter finish. The body is somewhat heavy, and the alcohol warmth is undeniable. Overall, a decent beer. YantarCoast (1622) - Moscow, RUSSIA - NOV 12, 2014
500ml bottle, ABV is 6.8%. Pours a very pretty amber with a small white head that fades, but not completely. Minimal amount of lacing. Faint caramel aroma. Taste is caramel followed by a slightly bitter and alcoholic finish that I found a bit harsh to begin with.
