jesperhammer (2897) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 11, 2012
10-MAY-2012, draft @DØE Ølfestival 2012. Amber/red. Fruity malty nose. Taste is sweet, fruity, red fruits. Low bitterness. Disappointed. Lacks bitterness. Too sweet. too much tutti fruity.

Skinnyviking (7068) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 10, 2012

DocLock (7861) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 8, 2012
Bottles from RR Street and Blue Dog. Pours turbid orangy copper with 1-finger frothy off-white head. Nose is malty, tannic, with hops and earthiness. Tastes rather dull, not much going on, with underlying malt, subdues hops, and a big earthiness that quite frankly gets hard to finish as it warms. This one was a major letdown, and no way in hell is this a BDG.

heavy (2133) - Split, CROATIA - APR 30, 2012
21/11 0.75 l bottle, great thanks ogivlado for sharing! It poured hazy orange to copper body with bigger yellow head. Lot of yeast and some caramel malt made its strong aroma. Interestingly, flavor was quite weak, still yeasty, biscuit malty, with some subtle vanilla and spicy stuff notes. Thinner with shorter to medium finish that was slightly sweet. Very nice actually, but wouldn’t miss more body. BTW, now I see it’s BDG, of course, those always miss flavor!

arminjewell (6177) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 18, 2012
Pour out of 750 mL bottle is hazy red, slightly gushing with slight off white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, biscuit, some slight grass, some slight mineral notes, touch of slight lemon, spice notes. Taste is fairly sweet with notes of caramel, biscuit and bready malts, touch of earth and slight acidic note, finishing fairly sweet.

adnielsen (9108) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 18, 2012
Bottle @ Dan’s house. Hazy, reddish orange appearance with an off white head. Slightly tangy, bready yeasty, orange citrusy aroma. Tangy orange citrusy, a bit sour, toasty malty flavor. Blah.

2012-05-11, bottle at Danske Ølentusiasters Ølfestival 2012, Copenhagen, 5-3-5-2-10=25
Cloudy amber color. Light aroma of caramel and vegetables. Good body, some sweetness, but too much yeast and vegetables. Off.

2012-04-10, bottle, from Gastronomia Fiorelli, Cartoceto, 5-3-5-2-9=24
Hazy amber color, with creamy head. Light aroma of spicy yeast, very light banana and plastic. Smooth mouthfeel, light malt flavor, spicy but also soapy; ordinary bitterness.
Off target.

yngwie (13575) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 29, 2012
Bottle, at Ølfestival 2011. It’s a quite flat one, unclear and with an amber-orange body. The aroma is rather weak, some fruit and caramel entering the nose. It’s slightly milky in the flavor. Pale malts, fruityness - yellow apples, pear, peaches - and some bitterness, but not much. Medium body. Malty and fruity end. Overall, a quite dull beer, and it sort of goes in several directions at once, seemingly without a target. 110528
