ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 2, 2008
Bottled. Pours out in a hazy pale orange colour with a rich and dense white foam. Fresh fruity and yeasty aroma of dried oranges, apricots, cheese, mild cardamom and dough. Medium-bodied with notes of cheesy yeast, dried oranges, all-spice, mild pepper and dried apricots. Rounded mouthfeel. Long semi-dry finish of yeast, spices, orange-peels and pepper.

CapedBrewsader (265) - Brasschaat, BELGIUM - MAR 3, 2008
ZBF 2008: lightly hazy dark amber with a small off-white head. An odd but deep and full malt character. Dark bread and light sourdough (not sourdough bread but the dough itself). Light but deep running simple spice possibly caraway seed. On top is Brazil nuts and fried dates. Flavor of that deep spice from the aroma. Spicy malt character almost rye. Dried leaves and dark fruit compot with figs. Ends with some raw grain and a dash of tin. Somewhat creamy feeling but ends dry enough.

yespr (30908) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - FEB 25, 2008
33 cL bottle. Pours slight hazy golden orange with a dense off-white head, lasts for a few minutes before it completely collapses. Overripe fruit, light marzipan and a mild yeast note in the aroma. Sweet caramel malt at first before a dried fruity yeast flavour rolls over the tongue. Nice fruity and yeasty finish, holds a mild wooden note too.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2008
Kind bottled gift from our kid Mes. My beer guru. The Alex to my Ferguson. Smells like a dirty dogs donut but I am drunk and sat in a room full of heathens and chemistry. Amber cloudy in appearance. Dry aftertaste, pleasant indeed it is.

The flavour is sweet with caramel, yeast, malt, a pleasant soft fruitiness and mild spiciness. The finish is dry and fruit with a mild bitterness. The beer of Mars? ILd drink some more of these.

auderale (605) - Minot, Alabama, USA - JAN 9, 2008
Golden amber pour with thick disappearing head. Sweet, malty, fruity nose. This had a nice fruity taste with small hints of caramel. This was good.

Maria (10136) - Thisted, DENMARK - DEC 11, 2007
Its a dark golnden beer with a huge head and a sweet aroma with notes of citrus/fruit. I get the same notes in the flavour, that also has nice notes of caramel and is smooth and balanced. Its a nice little Marsian, and if all of them are like this one, the dont seem like a threat form out of space - even if more of them at once might make you feel sick....
