12oz bottle poured into snifter. 1st bottle opened for my "Massive Mikkeller" tasting. I’m guessing this one was on the shelf for a little too long because it just seemed a little blah to me. Malty with hints of hops, but it didn’t really strike me fancy all that much.

11.2oz bottle from Gomer’s Lees Summit, MO. Totally forgot I had all these. Pours a murky, orange-amber colored body with a finger-width, dense, frothy and creamy, beige head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is citrus orange hops, sweet caramel, fruity esters, and touches of pine. Flavor is orange hops with some pine, sweet caramel, a light herbal spice, yeasty esters, and a hint of toffee. Finishes dry and fairly bitter with lots or herbal orange pines as well as a sweet caramel. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium body and a medium-high carbonation. Overall, I’m sure this was better fresh, but even so I’m not sure if I would be the biggest fan of it. Looking forward to knocking out the other 2 in the series.

mcberko (6562) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 6, 2012
11.2 oz. bottle, pours a murky, opaque brownish orange with a small beige head. Aroma of caramel malts, citrus hops, dry grapefruit peel and some spices. Flavour of spicy citrusy hops, some caramel malt, dry citrus fruit peel, with very low sweetness. Spicy, earthy, dry body, with a medium-high astringency on the finish. Decent.

Sampled on 5/5/2012. This “American Strong Ale” pours a slightly cloudy orange gold color from a 330ml bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity, caramel, hoppy and sweet. A medium bodied “ASA”. The malts are caramel, fruity and sweet. The hops are herbal and earthy. Decent carbonation. More malts, more hops, touch of alcohol, not sure what else but definitely more of it. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

Cloudy amber beer. Big off white head. Light soft palate, a little dry. Soft malt, lightly creamy. A little citrus before well behaved hops. Finishes with mild crispness.

Ughsmash (7146) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 17, 2012
Bottled. Poured cloudy, medium orange with a tall beige head. The aroma picked up rich bready notes and caramel topped by pine resin and fruity hoppage.. peppery on the back of the nose.. nothing too exciting, but it was aiight. The flavor found caramel and molasses at the core, with peppery and piney bitterness plus odd metallic notes emanating outward.. bitter and not too pleasant on the finish. Medium-bodied with high carbonation on the palate.. just an OK flow at best.. didn’t quite do it for me.

Habanero (2633) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 17, 2012 Bottled: Pours hazy deep amber with about a two fingers fluffy, off-white head with an excellent lacing. The nose is with citrusy, earthy hops and caramel. The flavor is medium sweet with bitter hops, with citrus fruits and caramel notes. Medium bodied , creamy to oily texture and soft carbonation. Solid bitter and more dry finish. A nice one.

2010-11-29, bottle, 7-5-7-4-15=38
Muddy light amber color (ok, the bottle was shaken enough 24 hours before); beautiful head, generous and compact, with a lace. The aroma, yeasty, is nice, but less spectacular than in a clean bottle. Good malt flavor, with strong yeast presence, and a pleasant degree of fruitness. Correct bitterness. Always good.

2010-07-14, bottle; parallel tasting with the Belgian Ale Yeast version, 8-5-8-4-16=41
Hazy amber color; generous head; beautiful lace. The fruity hop aroma is prominent, soft piney resins follow, and a light creamy touch replaces the spices of the Belgian Ale version. The body seems to be a bit rounder; there is a good caramel flavor, with some sweetness; good fruity hops and ending resins; strong bitterness. The final, caramel and resiny hops, is very pleasant. This version is softer and mellower than the other, better blended, at the same time without the (interesting) edges of the spicy touch.

unclemattie (4199) - Georgia, USA - JAN 22, 2012
330mL bottle. $6.00 for a single. Pours copper color, thick creamy light tan head. Aroma of a well hopped Amber Ale, spicy hops and dry malt. Just from the smell and looks of the pour... I like this beer already. Flavor is simple. Dry malt, spicy character, doughy basement finish. Lingering bitterness, malt is very dry. Finishes with a leathery earthy character. Medium to heavy carbonation.

MotherBrother (695) - Aalborg, DENMARK - JAN 18, 2012
Pour deep hazy amber, with a large frothy beige head. Aroma is of caramel malts, and fruity hops. Citrus, a little peach, a little grassy. Yeast is comming through towards the end. Taste is sweet, with a bitter/sweet finish. Medium body, with a average carb.
