0.5 l bottle from 'Bier & Beer', best before May 2018. Clear, deep reddish amber with a medium large, foamy, almost stable, off-white head. Sweetish-malty, quite herbal-grassy, slightly fruity-resiny and a bit floral aroma of caramel, raisins, tea leaves and orange jam. Quite sweet, malty, moderately bitter, fruity, herbal-grassy and slightly resiny taste of caramel, tea leaves, orange jam and raisins, followed by a short, moderately bitter, herbal-grassy and slightly resiny finish. Almost medium-bodied, smooth and slightly effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Pleasant, classic Bitter, highly drinkable and very sessionable.
500ml bottle, trade with JohnRMurdoch. Frothy, beige, bubbly head. Clear mahogany coloured body. Laces nicely. Good looking, indeed. Slightly roasted malts on the nose, mid-sweet. Malt-accented taste with nuts and caramel followed by dried fruity, bitter ending. A fine version of the style (hotel room, Edinburgh 10.08.2013).
50cl bottle from Meny Grønland. Pours dark amber with an off-white head. Malty aroma with some toasty notes, dried fruits, caramel and hints of hops. Medium sweet and malty with a mild bitterness in the finish. Lightly bitter aftertaste. Quite ok.
0.5l bottle. This is a clear light cola brown one with a good looking big light brown head that's leaving some serious lacing on the sides of the glass. On the aroma it has a good cola sweetness. Could of course be the imagination, but I clearly smell old still cola here. Also, it has a light herbal tone, almost grassy. Not extreme, a bit sticky sweet and definitely not bad. It's really thin and watery on the mouthfeel unfortunately. Wasn't expecting a full-bodied experience, but this was really thin stuff. Flavors however is quite nice. Lots of internal, thin sweet, really earthy flavors with traces of both cocoa, bitter almonds, chocolate, light roasted malts, really thin coffee and biscuits. Mmhhh, lots of flavor packed in a really thin beer. I'm enjoying it more and more, and it's really lightdrinkable. Not bad. 24.04.2013
500ml bottle: best before 28 May 2013. Poured into a UK pint sleeve at home on 30 Dec 2012. The beer looked good: deep reddy brown body with a full biege head on top. Malts all the way in this brew: semi-sweet and fairly mild roastiness wise is both the smell and taste. Some hints of peat smokiness try and sneak into the flavours along with dark chocolate and a hand full of mixed nuts (unsalted). Pleasant enough and although a ’tourist-beer’ it was OK.
bottle a long long time agao ... dark red ... dark chocolate malt nose ... deep rpoast ... soft honeyish tones
