3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks for the bottle, JPDIPSO. Dark amber body with a lightly yellow head. The aroma is toffee and some fresh cookie dough. Maybe a hint of ginger. The taste is surprisingly sweet with notes of caramel and toffee. There is a rich taste that makes me think of peanut brittle. This woudl seem right at home as a Christmas beer. As it is, it is the first cream ale I have had that I really like.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Small tan head that drops quickly, little to no lace left behind. Surprisingly clear amber hued brew, was expecting the obligitory pale blond color. Big bready malt nose. Body is med/light. Malts are mildly sweet, doughy and fresh with a light graininess and notes of vanilla. Finish is fairly dry and a touch fruity.

Bottle @ Oliver Twist, Stockholm
Amber, weak head. Unintruding aroma. Vanilla and cola in taste. Like a light version of the winter version. Sweet and quite refreshing in an odd way. Caramel.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
(12oz bottle) Crystal clear amber body topped by a small and swiftly disappearing off-white head. Aroma is moderately sweet, caramel/toffee, vanilla, evoking candy corns. Taste is the same, with a mild astringency in the finish. Watery light-medium body with a light acidity.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber colored body beneath a dense white head. Aroma is yeasty with loads of tropical fruit and cookie like malts. Sweet with some cotton candy like notes some earthy notes and marshmallow near the finish. Interesting, quite candy like but not cloyingly sweet.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Ruby, brief head. Aroma of toffee with a hint of red currant. Fairly sweet with soothing creamy mouthfeel and medium body. The flavours are wrapped in layers of soft cotton, creating a pleasant, but one-dimensional beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Surprisingly light for an amber colored-creme ale. It poured dark/amber-red. Smelt sweet like sugar, baked corn bread. Flavored was subtle. Refreshing with a smooth velvetly texture. Excellent beer from the bear with antlers!

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours to a medum head, carmel color, not much aroma. Very little taste; slighly malty favor, with a clean finish. Not one of my favs, especially for $8 for a six-pack.
