Can@Stadin Panimobaari, Helsinki. Amber colour, huge off-white head. Aroma is fruity, floral, some sweet malts, nectar and a bit sugary notes. Flavour is fruity, some earthy, sweet malts, tobacco as well as mildly alcohol. Good winter warmer, and was good in the summer time too.

Draught at Alibi Room, Vancouver
Hazy amber color. Very nice aroma of fruity hops. Good caramel flavor, malt, quite dry in the beginning; strong bitterness with some bitter orange fruitiness. Very good.

Theydon_Bois (16623) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 19, 2012
Tap at Hopworks Bike Bar, Portland - 07/11/12. Clear mid amber with a thin off white head that clears to the edges. Pale malt nose, light pine, some hops. Tastes of caramel malt, pine, hops, light grapefruit tones. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, bitter finish. Above average, drinkable but nothing special.

On tap at Kick. An unclear, almost murky orangey brown beer with an off-white head. Sourish, caramel malty aroma with a nice spiced touch. Cellar hints, pine cones and a touch of alcohol. It’s full bodied, lightly warming and nicely carbonated, rather dry, with caramel, prunes, some cellar, a pleasant spice touch and piney, bitter hops. Lasting sourish, malty aroma with pine cones, bitterness and some warming alcohol. Not a summer beer, that’s for sure, but it’s a fine brew indeed. Pleasant combo of sourness, bitterness and malts. 160716

Golden-amber. Earthy, caramellly with lots of earthy, piney hops. Earthy and piney on the palate as well. Slightly strong-tasting (boozy) winter ale, but for the most part has nice balanced and is quite clean.

Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours copper with a foamy off-white head. Strong hoppy aroma - but it’s like crushed cactus or something. Med body. There’s malt, and then there is "complex floral, spicy and citrus hoppiness ". Sort of twists my mouth around. Bomb it is. You could probably use this for industrial cleaner. Wowser!!!

22 oz. bottle, pours amber with an off-white head. Nose is full of hops, also with bready malts / cereal, citrus and potent floral notes. Flavour is full of floral notes and citrusy hops, with a bit of fruitiness. Long lingering citrus and hoppy finish. Low in complexity and the body is not overly dense, though quite decent.
