We did a blind taste test between this beer and 4 other amber ales to objectively determine which one was best. The beers were Full Sail Amber, Anderson Valley Boont Amber Ale, New Belgium Fat Tire, Lost Coast Alleycat, and Alaskan Amber. You can watch the video here to see who won: http://youtu.be/RaXcBiJExus

Aroma has low to moderate dark fruits notes, light citrus at first, going to into more caramel maltiness over time. It pours in dark amber body with low, short lasting head. Taste is earthy bitter upfront with caramel sweetness in the after taste to balance it out. I’d say the sweetness stands out a little bit. Body is medium with low to moderate carbonation, watery texture.

SnakeTown (489) - SWEDEN - JAN 18, 2014
Kopparfärgad med litet ljusbrunt skum! Doftar malt och lite söt men även humle! Ganska likt i smaken och lite likt en barleywine i smaken! Bra öl!

birraiolo (187) - ITALY - JAN 16, 2014
Bottiglia da 355 ml. Color ambrato carico con schiuma di grana fine color nocciola non molto abbondante. Al naso una freschezza agrumata seguita da un leggero caramello. Al palato inizio maltato agrumato con finale caramellato, manca forse un finale leggermente più amaro.

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2014 Beautiful color, sweet malty aroma. Light taste with little hops. Quite average beer.

If you like sticky sweet caramel malt then go for this, you’ll love it. If you don’t you won’t, tis like a marmite decision.
