Idiosynkrasie (4922) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 11, 2013
330ml bottle. Very nice, clear, ruby reddish dark amber colour with average, frothy, minimally lacing, off-white head. Piney herbal hoppy aroma, caramel malty background with a nuttily touch. Taste is minimally sweet caramel malty with a nuttily touch, piney, and herbal hoppy overtones, a fruity touch of cherries.

jmgreenuk (5804) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JUN 17, 2013
Draft at Taps Beer Bar, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a deep chestnut brown colour with a frothy white head and loads of lace. The aroma is rich red berry fruit yeast and spice. The flavour is medium bitter with some fruit, peppery spice and liqourice on the palate. The finish is smooth and bitter with a little malt. A super beer I must say.

chimpgibbon (424) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2013
Bottle from the Beerhive. Nice malty but crisp amber beer from Hitachino. Medium lingering head, malt on the nose and a bit of fruit - raspberry? Medium body with fizz and creaminess. Medium bitter taste with nice hop finish. Bit malty for me but good.

AshtonMcCobb (3933) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 14, 2013
33cl bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours dark amber with a nice red hue. The nose has delicate caramel malt with just a hint of something red and fruity. The taste has sweet red malt with a biscuity bitterness just following it up, something creamy in there too. The palate is just about medium bodied with a creamy texture and a lovely balanced biscuity finish. Overall, great beer - well put together.

mzaar (2051) - 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 (5796) - 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 (4725) - 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 (2113) - 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 (3603) - 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
