mzaar (1549) - Varberg, SWEDEN - JUN 6, 2013
Flaska @ Nami, Varberg. Det är godis att sätta näsan till glaset med alla de tropiska frukter som ryms där. Karamell ligger och lurar i bakgrunden. Smaken är nästan lika bra, med banan, grape, äpple, apelsin, karamell. Finns en alkoholton, som av sherry, som tar ner betyget ett steg.

gyllenbock (4460) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 29, 2013
Bottle at The Flying Elk, April 2013. Dark amber with a large white head. Aroma of malt, caramel, light hops and some nuts. The taste was soft with some hops, fruit, caramel and something that reminded of chocolate.

ClubGonzo (3951) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 24, 2012
Bottle, shared with BBGTC. Pours a deep amber-brown body with a small white head. Nose is caramel, nuts, roasty tones, grass and hints of pine. Taste is nougat, grass, nuts, burnt sugar and hints of paper. Moderate carbonation, medium body. Pretty standard amber without any real flaws, nor merits.

TET (1580) - FINLAND - DEC 16, 2012
A sligthly red, brown beer with a medium and beige head. Aroma of toffee and some caramell malts, fruits, aromatic, wet exotic wood and some citrusfruits. Taste is sligthly toffeeish, wood, medium bitterness and thus the taste is quite dry, some citrusfruits. Medium bodied, quite smooth carbonation. Quite nice and not too sweet Amber Ale, the bottle is probably quite old, and thus not very fresh.

Palme (3240) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 3, 2012
0.33l bottle shared with The tasting Crew. This is a light cloudy dark amber-red one with a nice small islandy off-white top. Smells quite nice with a dark sweet caramel, some red berries and fruity hops. Really nice taste on this. It’s caramelly sweet, lot’s of dry grassy bitterness. Light dry in the mouth all the way, and it’s average to soft on the carbonation with a light both dry and oily mouthfeel. Quite elegantly balanced. Some hints of sweet licorice in the aftertaste. Could easily drink this again. 18.10.2012

jonas (5605) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - OCT 24, 2012
Rated in 2009 in the Shinkansen from bottle. Agressive pine hopped aroma. I assume it’s amber, anyway the owl on the Label is cute. Honey roasted sweet entry, pine and citric balance, retains some sticky restsugars, as a consequence a Solid body, fine sparklyness dissolves it on the tongue. Quite drinkable.

SimplySike (811) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 12, 2012
33cl. Bottle. Poors hazy dark amber/brown with dark white head. Aroma malts, dark fruits, caramel. Taste dark fruits and caramel sweets, nice bitter. Mouth-feel thin. Nice Amber.
