fiulijn (14340) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 10, 2006

bhensonb (10802) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 27, 2007
Bottled 14/6/05. Aroma of malt supported by stone fruit. Reddish copper color with a frothy beige head that collapsed with some lacing. Medium bodied. The malt is mixed with fruit. The carbonation is medium. The finish is not very dry. However, the flavor profile is complex - varying malts mingling with ale fruitiness. Hints of darker fruits come forth in the long finish. Really decent. Upon reflection it reminds of Wychwood Hobgoblin.

faroeviking (10293) - FAROE ISLANDS - JUN 1, 2007
Bottle. Nice copper colour with an average white head. Sweet hoppy and malty aroma, which appears in the flavour too along with some frutiness, more caramel and toasted malts. A good tasting amber ale.

bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - FEB 27, 2006
Reading the story on the label will probably last a beer. 6th DRG. Red berries aroma. Medium to full bodied at firts, but that waters out. Vinous flavor, like old Spätlese Rhinewine. Grapes, some rest sweetness. Just a touch of bitterness in the aftertaste.
