Ungstrup (29849) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 7, 2009
Bottled. An amber beer with a lazing orangey head. The aroma is sweet malty combined with notes of caramel and ctirusy hops. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, cardboard, nuts, and hops, leading to a very bitter finish. The body is thin.

MiP (13798) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 14, 2010
Bottle at KØ10. Caramelly aroma. Clear chestnut colour. Small tan head. Thin flavour, faint caramelly note. Disappointing, even for AB.

Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 27, 2008
Bright golden-amber colour. The aroma is faintly woody, caramelly but mainly has stewed peaches and canned mushrooms. There’s some earthy character and lots of sweet caramel. Fairly bland, more amber than APA so I guess I was hoping for a bit too much. There’s certainly no evidence of dry-hopping. The light, appley fruitiness may not be terribly attractive on its own, but here it cuts through some of the thick caramel sludge. Still, the big guys were making better pseudo-craft beers in the mid 90s than they are today.

bu11zeye (11971) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - FEB 20, 2009
(Draught) Pours a clear amber body with a medium off-white head. Aroma of caramel, grass, nuts, and toasted grain. Flavor of mild hops (grass, floral, earthiness), bread, and caramel malt.

Leighton (11873) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2010
Bottle and draft. Pours a garnet-amber with a soft, off-white head. Malty aroma with fruit notes. Sweet flavor with bready malts, ripe fruits and some caramel. Very mild bitterness, and fairly nondescript. Medium in body with average carbonation. Finishes sweet and malty with understated hops. Not bad.

brokensail (11599) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 16, 2011
A: The beer pours amber in color with a khaki head that is initially a finger tall before settling down to a thin layer. S: The nose is somewhat grassy with a decent enough toffee and toasted bread aroma. There might be a little bit of caramel, too. A very, very simple nose, but pretty decent. T: Caramel, toffee, and toasted bread. There is a little bit of a fruitiness to the beer, such as pears and apples. Not really any hop character other than a touch of bitterness. M: The body is light to medium with a lively carbonation. D: Not horrible, but it’s really middle of the road and sort of bland.

bhensonb (11526) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 11, 2008
Tap at the St. Louis brewery tour tap room. This isn’t supposed to be in distribution (according to the folks in the tap room) until 9/15? Nice amber color with a multifinger off-white head. Nice floral aroma. Medium body with mild carbonation. Flavor is spicy hop over mild caramel. Finish is nicely balanced. Proves A-B can make a tasty product. Likely the best beer they have. Course having it really fresh might have helped.

thewolf (11257) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 18, 2010
Bottle @ CBF, 2010.
Pours clear amber with a small, creamy, off-white head. Aroma is sweet, lots of caramel. Highish carbonation, fine dry mouthfeel. Flavour has caramel, sweetness, light metallic. Some citric and metallic bitterness. Not impressive.
