blipp (8181) - La Mesa, California, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Draft at the tasting room. Pours deep amber with a beige head. Sweet caramel and faint crystal malts, fruity and earthy hops, and some candy sweetness. Not bad, but just a touch too heavy on the sweet malt character for my taste.

laiti (8069) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 20, 2015
65 cl can @ Sankt Hans Tasting, Ulfborg Aroma has coffee, bready malt and some sweet malty notes typical to ASAs. Flavour has roasted tones, resin, sweet malty tones and nuts. Like an ASA mixed with dunkel. Too sweet for my taste.

BMan1113VR (7917) - Los Angeles, California, USA - OCT 7, 2012
Bottle. Pours with a clear amber-orange hued body with a small, off-white/tan head. Aromas are of tea, marmalade, oxidized. Some caramel, floral, sweet, jammy, mild esters. Flavors are sweet, malty, sugary, bready, orange marmalade. Soft malt profile. Medium alcohol. Too sweet for my tastes. Orange rind, light dark fruit. Surprisingly smooth alcohol wise. Medium carbonation, slightly warming and a bit flabby.

650ml bottle. Clear copper colour with average, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Caramel malty aroma with a touch of almond and powdered sugar, some mandarine zest, a touch of plum. Taste is caramel malty, notes of almond, diluted plum. Simple and a bit monotonous - diluted Barley Wine.

Bottle from LtDan. Thanks! Pours a plum orangish red with a small sudsy white head. Nose is grainy water, light vegetal notes, no hops. Flavor is more developed with some sweeter fruity flavors, light bitterness. Ends a little ashy.
