COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Made from mostly pale malt and some Munich and caramel malts. These add a little sweetness, which is balanced by more hops. The result is a rich color and fruity flavor.

j12601 (6743) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 6, 2009
Bottle courtesy of daknole. Danke dak. Batch 9020, so about three months in the bottle. Pours a gently hazed brown amber with a medium to large white head. Soft caramel and malt on the nose, and a subtle hoppiness. Gentle malt and lightly sweet. Finishes with a subtle hop bitterness. Overall just a very subtle and light beer. Nothing bold, nothing big…just easy drinking tasty beer. Nicely done.

Bottle with dcachur after the Founders night, RBSG. Nice amber malt falvor and great hop balance. Slightly sweet, with a bit of chocolate and caramel. Very drinkable.

mabel (6531) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 10, 2007
[394-20070702] 355mL (w/ jerc). Wheaty malt and toasted straw yeast aroma with a hint of fruit, apple if anything. Slightly hazy, dark orange body with a long-lasting thin creamy white head. Grainy vegetable alcohol flavour with toasted yeast. Light-medium body. Not impressive, something funky there.

Radek Kliber (6519) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JUL 1, 2003
Thick head, light as some of my fellow friends noticed with me (Hoppygrrrl and Psych.). Very sweet aroma, some honey and caramel. Slightly alcoholic, medium light body. Light and refreshing brake from heavier brothers. Fun to drink

A fairly good version of the style, nose of malts and tastes of just the same but fairly weak in body and finish.

DSG (6329) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - NOV 17, 2013
Bottle sample at a tasting at Tempo. Thanks kerenmk. Clear amber. Aroma of cardboard, malt, a bit of caramel and a bit of stale hops. Sweetish flavor with malt, caramel, cardboard and some stale hops bitterness. Medium-bodied. Too old.

Botte. Pours a deep amber with a decent white head. The aroma consists of malts and sweet bread. The taste is subdued, some sweet malts, a bit of hops, some bready parts, and maybe a light side of fruit. Easy to drink and smooth. Nothing too special though.

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 13, 2004
Bottle pours pale caramel, very cloudy with bits floating about, virtually no head, good carbonation, with slick lacing.   Sweet malts & butterscotch on the nose.   Semi sweet malts up front, immediately followed by a biting graininess, which also fades rather quick.   Finishes rather boring, more bitter than malty.   Medium body and mouthfeel, but too much like a malty pale ale.   Thankes goes out to atpayne for the trade!

Svesse (6295) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - APR 26, 2010
(Bottle, Monk’s Café Wallingatan, Stockholm) Amber colour with frothy, beige head. Malty, slightly fruity nose with notes of caramel, dried fruit and orange peel. Fruity, malty taste with dried fruit, orange, caramel and a balanced bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with some sweetness. Lacking something extra, but well balanced and tasty.
