FlacoAlto (3810) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - FEB 2, 2013
A steady pour into my Bruery tulip produces a fat, two-finger thick, lightly tan colored head. The beer is a concentrated, but bright, amber color that shows a clear, bright amber depth when held up to the light. The aroma smells of lightly spicy hops, lots of cracker like malt, and perhaps a touch of English biscuits. There is a light cider like fruitiness to the nose, which gets a little floral like at times.

Dry up front, but it picks up a little sweetness in the middle and finish, which brings out a cider like note. Soft, caramelized malt notes, a touch of straw like pale wheat cracker notes, perhaps hint of hop herb / spice character in the finish, but sort of a metallic note is there as well. The body is fairly light, and this is definitely effervescent.

Cider is definitely the dominant characteristic here in both the flavor and nose; not bad, but fairly lackluster.

r464 (1992) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 27, 2015
Amber with a huge and fiizzy white/tan head. Like licking drywall. Bland, but still off. There is the faint shadow of a Belgian-like yeast and tartness, but it’s deep below the overall taste.

slowrunner77 (6600) - Reno, Nevada, USA - APR 16, 2015
nice enough house/table beer, but the price here in the states prevents it from being such a beer. amber malts with light hopping and a present but in the background belgiany yeast. a little dusty.

Icedwarf (583) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - APR 11, 2015
Lichtbruin licht troebel bier met veel schuim. Smaak is hoppig bitter en licht zoet met sporen van anijs en drop. Uitstekend bier, smaak blijft gemiddeld lang hangen.

Decent Amber beer. It feels, smells and looks like a amber. Nothing special, nothing out of the ordinary. A shame.

500 cl cc from Whole Foods PM. Hazy orange pour with fluffy, off-white head. Heavy cork pop. Nose is cobwebby malt, hopcitrus, tannins. Tastes malty, vibrant, with hops, and a british bitter quality plus some old aley yeast.

rondphoto (2651) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - FEB 24, 2015
bottle @ Grassroots Natural Market / Jacksonville FL --- Nice aroma of slightly sour malt. Hazy dark amber color, solid beige head, no lace. Taste is sour malt that adds some caramel and earth before a carbonated swallow takes over. Slightly more bitter on a smooth medium finish. Overall, a solid fizzy ale.

ShivanDragon (2017) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - DEC 11, 2014
Wederom een gusher van deze brouwer, troebel amber met schuimige fijne wit/gelige kraag. aroma van mout, zoet, en minder dan de blond. Smaken zijn redelijk zoet, dun, glad, ;licht zuurtje, mout, caramel, zwakke body, dun en glad van textuur, lage co2, maar over het algemeen niet echt bijzonder

Alengrin (2939) - BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2014
Dormaal’s second ’farm ale’, with thick, light beige head and deep brownish, cloudy orange blonde colour. Aroma of apples, walnuts, pear, caramel, cognac, grass and honey, taste a soft rounded fruitiness, mellow maltiness with agreeable nutty hints but primarily caramel-like, mild hoppy finish without any real bitterness, thirst-quenching, a bit earthy.
