krumbum (521) - truckee, California, USA - MAY 23, 2014
Clean amber red color with a light but covering head. A light hop with a sticky grain aroma. Smooth with a slightly bitter sweet malt grain to the flavor. Leaves a sticky residue in taste and texture.

Pour is coppery brown with an off-white head. Aroma of bready malt, spicy hops, caramel/toffee, and a bit of chocolate and clove. Taste is bready malt, herbal/woody hops, a bit of chocolate, toffee, and some wet cardboard. Light bodied with moderately fizzy carbonation. Not too exciting.

Fatehunter (1201) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAY 4, 2014
Pours a thin head on a dark straw colored body. The aroma is musty grain, in the alt style. The taste has a grain flavor to it, but is overall watery. The texture is thin with moderate carbonation. It lacked real flavor. Boost that up a little and this wouldn’t be too bad.

yngwie (13555) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 18, 2014
Bottle. It pours a clear, dark amber to brown body under a small, off-white head. The aroma has some caramel maltyness and some dried fruits, with a touch of nuts. The flavor is pretty fruity, with caramel maltyness and some nuts, dried fruits too. Medium body, quite dry on the palate, soft carbonation. Short malty finish with some caramel maltyness. Really boring this one, but it downs easily. 140118
