RichardGretton (4525) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2013
Bottle. Strong coloured amber beer with a strong head. The aroma is quite dry with a hint of bitterness, the flavour is very bitter (rather like an IPA) and refreshingly dry with a hint of spice. Overall a nice strongly bitter beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

AshtonMcCobb (4432) - 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.

JohnRMurdoch (4052) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - APR 2, 2012
Bottle from BrewDog Glasgow. Unexpected dark brown collour with a yellowish foamy head. Hoppy chocolate caramel aroma. Hop & chocolate flavour. Quite smooth. Not a typical amber ale.

Palme (3604) - 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. Itís caramelly sweet, lotís of dry grassy bitterness. Light dry in the mouth all the way, and itís 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

Pours dark brown with a low tan head. Aroma is malts, fruits and caramel. Flavor is bitter malts, some fruits, some caramel and some hops. Pretty decent.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 18, 2008
Bottled, shared by the OMH gang. Pours out in a brownish amber colour with a small creamy disappearing white foam. Crisp and fresh aroma of black cherries, grass, nuts and blood-oranges. Medium-bodied with a crisp and rather hoppy flavour of cedar-wood, grass and orange-peels with sweet undertones of red berries. Black cherries, toasted malts, nuts and orange-peels in the long aftertaste. Very nice, a hoppy and elegant amber ale, thatís quite rare.
