3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
[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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A fairly good version of the style, nose of malts and tastes of just the same but fairly weak in body and finish.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(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.
