OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - APR 2, 2013
A - Pours a hazy red amber with a descent 2 finger head that retains well. S - Kind of an earthy cookie dough malt aroma. T - Caramel, toffee, maple, and brown sugar with a side of nutty bread. Some earthy pine mutes out some of the sweetness and adds a bite at the end. M - Moderate carbonation, medium body. This has some distinct aromas and flavors. Lots of earth and nuts. The aroma reminded my of something that I just couldn’t make out. I would drink this again. Serving type: bottle 11-28-2010

Poured an darker amber from the can with aromas of malt, caramel, light hops and some earth. Flavors match the aromas, toffee and caramel with some light earthy hops. Decent amber ale overall.

jinroh (724) - ESTONIA - JUL 22, 2015
Pours nice clear amber, persistent white-beige head that is leaving beautiful lacings. Lots of bubbles and high carbonation. Aroma has a strong malt backbone, malt sweetness, toffee - but feels also nicely fresh. Taste is simple but brilliant - hops are building on the malty and sturdy base, making the beer feel like a small meal. Nicely hoppy small meal. Bit heavy for the abv but overall has nice clean flavours and I quite like it.

Kita (1463) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JUN 28, 2015
Can, 0.355l, shared with Bojan. Pours cloudy amber orange color with thin creamy off-white head and nice lacing. Aroma is grassy, floral and malty. Taste starts by moderate sweet caramel, follows grassy and mild citric, while finish is medium bitter. Medium body, oily texture and lively carbonation in palate. Easy going beer, but misses a final touch...

zacgillbanks (3175) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2015
Can from Coppers, Newcastle. A hazy amber coloured beer with a caramel and vanilla flavour, bitter orange notes followed my a creamy malty and earthy nutty finish.

KansaiBeerLvrs (3054) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUN 25, 2015
Can from Ezo beer, served in a pint glass it pours a clear Amber with a beige head. The nose is a solid green piney hops, much more enticing than your average Amber. Medium bodied with a raspy carbonation. The taste is very nice - malts and toasted cacao with a bitter dose of hops. Simple but yum. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mile (3422) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 7, 2015
Bottle. Dark golden, hazy, small to average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate malty and lightly sweetish aroma, some caramel and light bread with light floral fruitiness, light citrus hoppyness. Body is medium, malty and lightly sweetish, some caramel and light floral fruitiness with light citrus/herbal hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, light - some caramel and light bread, faint floral fruitiness, light - some citrus/herbal hoppyness. Not overly too sweet - could use more bitterness to balance caramel and bread. Nothing special though.

355ml can. Amber. Large sticky tan head. Nose has grains and caramel. Taste - caramel malt sweetness, mild resiny hops. Mild bitterness and bit of lingering hoppiness. Medium body with good carbonation. A decent amber ale, somewhat basic, but tasty.

jamestulloch (2113) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 10, 2015
Can from Great Grog. Hazy amber body with a medium off-white head. Steady carbonation. Light lacing. Aroma of nuts, honey, caramel, tea and copper - it smells like a Bitter. Flavour of red apple, sweet malts and metal. Medium body with an oily texture. Soft fizz. Restrained and quite drinkable.

markextrae (2120) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 8, 2015
shared can, poured a slight cloudy amber colour with a off head, notes of caramel, bitter grapefruit, citrus, malts, dried fruit, very simple beer, bit boring and watery

erickok (4296) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - MAY 2, 2015
Amber bodied and large head. Very drinkable body, very clean fermentation, toasty aromas and biscuit. Decent stuff but a bit too dry perhaps for the malt base. Resin and pine hops, but not quite enough for my taste. Does have a good bitterness level. (33cl can from Beer City)
