4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Previously lost notes from GBBF 2006. A sort of cloudy brown coloured beer with a little white head. Hoppy almost spicy aroma. A thick body with lots of nice hops and a very bitter finish. This was really good.

UPDATED: JAN 27, 2010 50 cL bottle, approx. 2 year old vintage, huge thanks to Ungstrup for finding and sharing this last bottle - what a generous set of beers that night - thanks! Pours clear and golden orange with a huge and slowly collapsing white head. Pineapple and peach fruity aroma. Flavour is light peachy fruity with a light caramel malt base. Subdued sweetness. Light peachy and pineapple bitter and fruity finish. Nice.

Botella. Vintage 2006. Orange amber colour with a medium white head. Grape fruit and pine hoppy aroma. Quite good soft mouthfeel. The flavour has a very pleasant bitterness with ripe fruits, pine, hops and a pleasant sweetness.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Rating # 2500 Vintage 2006 [Courtesy of Ungstrup, thanks buddy] Huge bubbly white head that mostly lasted. Excellent lacework. Clear sparkling amber body. Aroma of Two years old and the hops seams quit fresh with notes of citrus, apricot, sweet flower, mild grapefruit. Mild perfume and soap like notes. Over the palate came lovely toffee, mild liquorish like, toasted malt. Medium bodied with a soft carbonation and dry texture. Moderated sweet and bitter flavour in balance. Dry and light bitter finish that lingers with a fruity like feel at the very end.

20061111 Sample at Cornboy’s BW meet. Not great notes on this one but I’ll never try it again and at least I have numbers. Pretty stardard American micro version of a pale ale which is a nice treat from a Danish brew. C-hops are abundant on top of sweet fruity malts.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, courtesy Ungstrup (at GBBF), August 2006. Slightly murky, mid brown appearance. Off-white head. Really prominent juicy, resinous hop aroma. Sharp and fresh on the palate, although the flavours are less intense than the aromas. A slightly fizzy mouthfeel and a touch too much residual sweetness for my taste detracted a little from my enjoyment but still a pretty fine beer.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Courtesy boboski. Murky amber/burnt orange. 2cm of dense, frothy light tan head. Aroma of pungent, past ripe fruit, florals, resin, caramel, light spiciness. Similar flavor is more mild than aroma and adds a dry, airy, yeasty finish. Medium body, well carbonated, perhaps overly so. Solid brew, unique.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Thanks to Papsoe. Pours a muddy yellow-orange amber with a great finger-thick creamy white head. Aroma has lots of hops with a very floral, herb-like side to it. It has feel of roses and a musky edge to it as well. Creamy mouhtfeel - perhaps a touch low carbonated. Flavour is nice, very hoppy with the floral tones coming through here as well. Nice example of the style with a great balance.
