A solid amber. One of those beers that would be good to introduce your macro loving friend to the world of good beer. Pours a beautiful amber and has a decent nose of thick malts. THe mouthfeel is light to medium and it has a a solid if slightly boring taste. As it warms the caramel becomes apparent (diacetyl?). Smooth and easy to drink, just not that complex

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.

TET (2255) - Kaarina, 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.

shadey (2020) - 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.

worldbeertaste (1778) - 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.
