harrisoni (13897) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2005
Bottle, St Albans Beer Festival 2005. Red/russet with beige head. Some good caramel, barley sugar aromas which carry on into the body of this beer. Quite drinkable. Bit too sweet but good spice/dry hop finish. Hop nose is quite subtle

yngwie (13845) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 17, 2008
Bottle. It pours a nice dark golden body with a lively carbonation and a decent off-white head. Pleasant but weak aroma of malt, sweetness, a little nuttyness and fruity hoppyness. Quite sweet on the palate, full body, with caramel, some lightly roasted malt and fruityness. Some lingering bitterness, adding joy to the sweet and malty finish. There’s some notes of cooked vegetables in the finish, pulling my score down a little bit, but if drank by numbers, I don’t think it would be noticed. A nice one, easy to drink and quite refreshing.

MiP (13676) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 29, 2005
Bottle. Dark copper colour, small head. Looks flat. A little malty. The alcohol stands out a bit, perhaps it is because of the combination with a hop flavour that is a little harsh. Mild carbonation, which I like. Good mouthfeel.

argo0 (11568) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 25, 2004
Sparkling light amber body with big off-white head. Aroma is moderately sweet, molasses, caramel, some toasty. Taste is moderately sweet, caramel, molasses, light earthy, faint herbal. Finish has very mild bitterness. Light-medium body with a hint of stickiness. Ok, but a bit too sweet to me.

bhensonb (11275) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 4, 2007
Aroma of caramel malt and apple? Amber color with a white head that was respectable and laced in a mild way. A bit thin bodied, and mild, crunchy carbonation with apple flavor? Grape? Some kind of light fruit. Verly slightly sweet. Floral hop really makes this nice. It is just so clean and refreshing. Very tasty.
