Ungstrup (29477) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 24, 2008
Bottle. A hazy orangey beer with a thin orangey head. The aroma is sweet with powerful notes of caramel as well as notes of alcohol, hops, and over ripe fruits. The flavor is sweet malty again with strong notes of caramel and medium notes of fruit, leading to a very bitter finish. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

(Bottle 35,5 cl) Courtesy of Degarth. Pours a hazy amber golden with an off-white head. Fat oily hop aroma with some peachy accents. Quite full-bodied with plenty of caramel malt, peach and other fruit before a very solid and hoppy bitter finish. 220608

omhper (19659) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JAN 4, 2007
Bottled at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Cloudy dark amber, small head. Rich grapefruity hop aroma. Rather sweet and solidly malty with light crystal malt character. Very rich on soapy, grapefruity hops. Lingering bitterness. Very American and straight to the point - and very good!

fiulijn (14978) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 18, 2008
Draught at R.F.D., Washington DC
Hazy amber color, creamy head. Good aroma of hops and caramel. Medium bodied, it has a medium sweet caramel flavor, good bitterness level, but not the amount of oils/resins that I look for. Pleasant.

Oakes (12723) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 12, 2007
Cloudy golden-amber. Aroma fills the room - crystal malt and woody hops with hints of grapefruit, apple and dust. Thick, very chewy, no shortage of crystal malt. A biscuity note joins in, along with dull woody hops. OK, typical Cali chewiness but that mid 90s lack of brightness really hurts.
