Patou (9) - - APR 5, 2013
Appearance is not the one of an amber ale. Looks closer to a brown ale. Taste is quite nice, medium sweet and rather bitter. Well balanced to my taste. Basically, this is more of an IPA that an amber ale. Quite hoppy. Medium body lively carbonation and long bitter finish. Overall, this is a good surprise.

Ungstrup (31474) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 5, 2011
Bottled. A hazy dark amber beer with a lazing light tan head. The aroma has notes of malt, caramel, and alcohol, as well as a bit of fruit. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, metal, caramel, and berries, leading to a bitter metallic finish. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

Medium, lively carbonation, dry and creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has fine caramel, lightly toasted. Good hoppy balance and dryness. Fruity with a hint of peach, light peppery and somewhat spicy. Very good amber ale.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 10, 2008
Muddy orange-brown hue with a medium-sized, off-white, frothy head. Citric-heavy perfumes strike the nose first, strong on the oranges and grapefruit. Apples, Fuji perhaps, come next along with a generous bready malt profile and the aroma of cherries plus their pits. Lightly sweet and peppery to begin, the flavour picks up some leathery yeast notes towards the middle and finish with some sweet prunes, but also hoppy, bright and floral. Medium bodied with a watery texture and forceful, slightly off-putting, carbonation. With warmth comes the impression of Queen Anne pocket melons. Fitting, considering the English background of this brewery. Shared out of a 75cl bottle at Gastropub Tuulensuu.
