shoulderbroken (2107) - Tokyo, JAPAN - NOV 17, 2011
Draught at the brewery. Browny red/dark amber colour with off-white head. Aroma spicy and roasted, but like Hojicha, red roasted tea. Also quite hoppy bitterness, pine, resinous, b.o. Very prickly in the mouth and a very bitter finish.

shadey (1904) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 6, 2009
Bottle from KyotoLefty. A very nice toasty amber. Sweet malts, but the toasty character is the best. Why isn’t this imported.

TheCametron (1816) - CZECH REPUBLIC - FEB 19, 2012

TET (1689) - 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.

worldbeertaste (1670) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2012 Carbonated dark caramel colour with a nice red tint and a lasting creamy beige head. Smells of a refreshing orange and chocolate with yeast and malt. Medium crisp smooth body.. Tastes of light Chocolate, malt then sour feel (orange), with some hoppy nutty finish. The flip from sweet to sour is really impressive. This is one cracking ale.

mzaar (1648) - 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.

jamestulloch (1451) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 10, 2012
Aroma: Bitter, bready aroma. Hints of cherry.

Appearance: Chestnut brown body. Small white head. Good lacing.

Taste: Roasted malts and berry fruits. Subtle coffee taste. Not overly complex, but nice balanced and very moreish.

Palate: Medium body. Light carbonation. Bitter finish.

Overall: Roasted malt flavours dominate the bitter hops. Well balanced taste.
