355ml bottle, thanks to Finn H for sharing. Unclear, orange coloured body. Faint amount of off-white head. Malt-fruity aroma. Citrus and malts in flavour. Mild ending with dry bitter hops. Half way pleasing (Tromsø, 02.06.2011).

daknole (10828) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 16, 2008
bottle from wisconsinbeer, thanks! Deep copper pour, barely any head at all. Aroma is very malty and some sawdust notes(previous entry below me nailed it!). Flavor is pretty plain, malty and maybe a bit nutty. Slight hop profile lends itself to the english style. Not bad, not amazing.

The aroma is slightly malty. Notes of toffee and caramel. This crystal clear, deep amber beer has a small, white head. Mostly diminishing with excellent lacing. The flavor is perfectly balanced with bursts of caramel and butterscotch. Medium-length, dry finish with fresh cut fescue at the far end.

Bottle @ home, picked up at RJs Fort Collins. Pours a dark orange appearance with a cream colored head. Bready, chewy/doughy, light caramel, herbal aroma. Pretty good body. Light tangerine, dough, caramel, toast, earthy flavor. A bit twangy. Not something I’d buy again but it’s not bad.
