thebeertourist (5157) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 27, 2008
Bottle. Hazy red copper with a medium off-white head. Malty, even buttery, caramel aroma. Malty flavours, some spices. Well-carbonated. Well-made, but not terribly exciting.

Hildigöltur (5105) - København, DENMARK - FEB 16, 2006
Bottled. Hazy amber coloured. Very yeasty and fruity aroma. Very sweet favour with lots of fruits and some yeastiness. Bland.

Miksu (5033) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - MAY 20, 2008
0.33 l bottle. Hazy amber color. Vanilla, bouillon, solvent, candy and lemon in the aroma. Yeasty and candyish flavor with vanilla. Fruity-bitter and yeasty finish. Unpleasantly yeasty.

skortila (5002) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - FEB 28, 2003
Cloudy brown loloured, creamy lasting head. Lovely strong sweet fruity aroma. More malts in taste, sweet fruity. Moderate sweet palate.

jbrus (4991) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - SEP 11, 2005
Bottled. Aroma of nice strong hops and apple. Amber color, beige head, few lace. Light sweet, hoppy, peppery, bit of iron. Sparkling, medium body, light dry. Complex, well hopped but still it gave me an amateuristic feeling.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 10, 2008
330 ml bottle. Fluffy medium-sized white head. Foggy, well carbonated brownish amber body. Crisp fruits and caramellish malts in the aroma. Notes of mild spices and yeast. Taste is dry malts with light acidic fruit tones. Supported by more mild spices along with some quite stale bittering hops. Body is a bit underweight, but the beer goes well down though...

sayravai (4707) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 15, 2005
(Bottled) Hazy amber color with sparkling carbonation and a large, firm and lacy head. Toffee-malty, British-style bitter aroma with a hint of metal and strawberry. Slightly sour and acidic berries and dark toffee aroma. Long, lingering, somewhat bittersweet berry aftertaste. Medium-bodied, smooth-carbonated and bitter palate. A quite enjoyable, British-Belgian brew.

SHIG (4161) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - FEB 4, 2008
Bottle: Poured an orange amber with a off white color head. Aroma is caramel and malts, slight roastedness. Taste is a slight burnt malt with sweet caramel and a slight metal bite.

Alengrin (3861) - BELGIUM - AUG 8, 2014
Artisanal Wallonian ’spéciale belge’, the classic, almost standardized genre of Belgian amber ales. Yellowish white, irregular, sticky, stable foam, ’real’ deep amber colour, almost copper, misty. Aroma of freshly cut apples, banana, grapefruit, walnuts, caramel, liquorice, cinnamon, leather and a faint smokey accent. Crispy fruity taste, citrussy, caramel malts, in the middle strongly nutty like a pale ale, light smokiness, finishing in a herbal, medium long hop bitterness. Now this is what a traditional spéciale belge should taste like - the great (commercial) icon Palm Spéciale can even learn from it.
