355 ml bottle.
Pours a ruby red colour with a white head. Aroma of sweet grainy malts, berries and caramel. Flavour of sweet malts, grains, juicy mandarin orange and strong bitterness. Medium bodied and a bitter sweet finish. Good stuff.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle, thanks to tmoney99. Best before March ’13. Mildly hazy darker red / brown color. Thin khaki head, leaves nice lace. Smooth texture, crisp lighter carbonation. Medium body. Nice earthy hops, caramel malts. Light spiciness, little toastiness. Hint of chocolate. More sweet taste. Low bitterness. Solid red ale. Would probably be great with some lobster (really, just some lobster in general would be great..)

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Long time is rating, as I had to be certain that it contains no actual lobsters, since those bug-eyed bums don’t agree with me. Aroma of molten caramel and minerals. Reddish orange color, almost clear. Mildly sweet taste, a touch of fizzle, but really not much going on. Perfect session beer for a not-so-hot day at the beach.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Poured a dark reddish copper color with an average to large frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting and had good lacing. Good malt, fruit and hop aroma. Medium body with smooth texture and soft carbonation. Moderate well balanced smooth flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good brew.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Amber, hazy, small to average and fully diminishing head. Moderate, malty and sweetish aroma, caramel - some toffee, some floral fruitiness and light hoppyness. Body is medium, malty and sweetish flavor, some caramel and floral fruitiness, light citrus hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, some caramel and light floral fruitiness with some citrus hoppyness. OK hoppyness for amber ale - but too much caramel for me (and too sweet).

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
355ml bottle (K Kamppi, Tallinn)
Slightly dusty grainy aroma, plenty of real barley. Watery palate, OK carbonation. Tastes actually a bit watery too. Grainy and nutty retronasals. Fuller in the mouth, a richer maltiness, some sweetness. Finish is twiggy with its nutty woodiness. Dry and drying. Some quite acidic hops in the late finish. Better as it warms as it fills out a bit. But still too watery and minerally dry. Didn’t have trouble finishing the glass though.
