Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 15, 2006
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Pours a beautiful, clear amber with a creamy, off-white head leaving a neat lacework. Vaguely hoppy nose. Medium body with some with sweetish, caramelish malt. Dry, hoppy finish - but also in this Mendocino I really could use some more refinement in the hopping. Itís a bit raw. 270306

omhper (19333) - TyresŲ, SWEDEN - JUN 30, 2006
[Bottled at East End Brewery, Quarry Bay, Hong Kong] Hazy reddish amber, brief head. Aroma and flavour of roasty malt and grapefruity hops. Medium sweet with clean mouthfeel and obvious aromatic, roasty crystal malt character. Aromatic peachy finish with medium bitterness. Simplistic and ultra-American, but pretty good.

yngwie (13495) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2013
Bottle, 12oz. A creamy, beige head forms over a clear, dark golden body. Malty, lightly citrusy, piney aroma. Some nuttyness, but rather boring. The flavor has a plesant bitterness, but else itís quite boring. Citrusy, grassy hops. Medium to full body, quite dry, with a nice carbonation level. Bitterness, grass and some fruityness in the finish. A pretty boring one, but not flawed in any way. 131231

(12oz bottle, courtesy of Lumpy) Pours a clear golden body with a small white head. Aroma of toasted grain, caramel, and light grass. Flavor of caramel malt and grassy hops with a somewhat bitter finish.

I keep coming back to this one. Itís got the hops, but itís also smooth and well-rounded.
