oh6gdx (20295) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 9, 2013
Bottled (from AbM). Deep amber (close to copper) colour with a small bubbly head. Aroma is berries, some floral and grassy notes along with some mild caramel malts and also some wood. Flavour is mild wood, floral, berries, grassy and mild toasted notes. As it warms up it gets slightly metallic notes in the flavour as well. Not your typical "brilliance" in BBF beers.

Euston Tap. Lightly hazy amber beer. Tiny suddy white head. Light palate, semi dry. Something of a fresh air beer - mild malt, a little apples. Very mild orange hop. Dry finish. Dull, ephemeral and a bit green. Very disappointing!

harrisoni (13577) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2013
50cl bottle from The Bottle Shop, Canterbury. Hazy deep red brown with a thick lasting beige head. Piney hoppy aroma. Some malts in the mouth, then a big whack of piney hop on finish. It’s decent enough and kept compnay with my lunch. Typical interpretation of an american amber. Yes, it’s pretty good and a style I very much like. Some sweetness. Yes pretty good.

yngwie (13346) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2013
Bottle, at Nærbø Ølfestival 2013. A clear, amber colored beer with a greenish touch. A dense, off-white head of finger-thick size on top. Hoppy nose with citrus peel and some pale malts. The flavor has some citrus peel, as well as bitterness and pale malts. Dry on the palate, with a nice carbonation. Pleasant citrusy and bitter finish. A quite nice one, but nothing extraordinary going on. 131019

TBone (12541) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 14, 2014
Bottle 500ml (AbM)
Dark amber-copper color, good creamy beige head, good lacing. Caramalt and fruity hoppyness in the nose. Medium-bodied. Front has some caramelt, then nice piney hoppyness with hints of citrus. Decent backing malts. Ok beer for this style and certainly very little British in this one.
