Ungstrup (29135) - 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 (13513) - 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 (12234) - 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.

(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.

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.

jcwattsrugger (11076) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - SEP 27, 2008
12oz bottle-pours a thin tan head with large bubbles and copper color. Aroma is medium malt-caramel, secondary citrus/perfumy hops. Taste is medium malt-caramel, dry and bitter citrus/perfumy ops, some cherry. Rougher than the original American Ale by Cricket Hill. Also a bit over carbonated. Thanks decaturstevo for picking this out.

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.
