Previous notes...Pours dark amber in color and brings aroma of light sweet orange notes. The body is light and malty with some hints of orange and Belgian yeast.

@ Basunen 15-8-22: doften är ganska intetsägande. Smaken är mycket söt med tydlig kola. Enbart små toner av apelsin. Ingen höjdare.

omhper (21423) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 24, 2015
Bottled at Petalax Beer Festival. Clear mahogany colour, small head. Vanilla, caramel and orange up front. Sweet with medium body and clean, rounded mouthfeel. Simplistic flavour of caramel, vanilla and blood orange. Low bitterness. Infantile.

Garrold (2701) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2015
Bomber. Curious Hop, Otley. Clear, dark copper colour. Thin, dense, lasting, beige head. Fruity, malt loaf aroma, specifically Soreen! Some gingery spice. Orange rind. A bit fudgy. Taste is soft sweet. Light bitter. Light dry. Nice balance. Smooth, airy mouthfeel. Finishes chewy sweet. Orange zest bitter right on the close. An oddity, but easy enough drinking.

Growler share at Evernote. Roasted malts, medicinal, tinny (probably some oxidation). Ultimately too sweet for me.

Draught at the Caldera Brewing Co, Ashland, CA. Dark reddish brown colour with a small light tan head. Sweet malt, fruits, mild alcohol and medicine notes in the aroma. The flavour is sweet malt, mild floral hops and some alcohol. Meh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
