Martinus (2630) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - APR 26, 2011
Originally started to benefit the success of the popularity of Speciale Belge and amber beers in general in the Netherlands. Amber colour, nice creamy head. Aroma of caramel, (toasted) malts and sweet fruits. Taste caramel, malts, slight smoky flavour. Slight bitterness. From the generic amber beers this just might be the best one, but it’s still a generic amber beer. (from 33cL bottle)

Bottle 0,3ltr: Clear amber coloured brew with an fruity and caramel taste. Once brewed at Bavaria now at Koningshoeven, but technically the same.

Countbeer (4078) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - DEC 3, 2010
Bottle: White airy head on top of a dark amber to brown colored beer. Smell toasted malts, caramel, spices, fruits, sweets and some hops. Taste is an ok mix of toasted malts, caramel, sweets, hops, spices and some dark fruits.

30cl bottle. Amber colour with a white head. Flavour is malty and fruity with very little bitterness. Fairly drinkable in the summer.

Is it possible to taste bacon or ham in a beer? This might be the first one. Thin, not very pretty and not with much spark. Forgettable

dEnk (3486) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - APR 5, 2010
Amber pour, medium slightly tanned head. Aroma of sweaty fruit and grains. Flavour is quite watery and sweet caramel with faint fruit. Uninteresting beer.

yngwie (12722) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 25, 2010
Bottle. This one pours a clear, dark golden body under a small, creamy, off-white colored head. Decent aroma, syrupy fruityness and caramel. Maybe a bit on the sweetish side. Syrupy and fruity flavor too, some caramel and hops, not much bitterness. Low on bitterness in the finish too. Maybe this style of beer doesn’t need much bitterness, but I don’t think there’s sufficient in this one. Medium body with pleasant carbonation. An easy drinking beer, but a bit on the sweet side I think. 091016

Bottle. Amber colour with an off-white head. Aroma is malt, hay, caramel. Flavour is malt, hay, fruit, berris, caramel. Medium body. OK beer.

rosenbergh (6110) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 18, 2009
300 ml bottle. From Eindhoven, the Netherlands.
Clear copper colour with tiny off-white head. Sweetish nutty malty aroma with some spices. Roasted malty flavour with bitter hoppiness and some hints of alcohol and spices. Quite interesting but also thin.

pivnizub (8591) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - NOV 29, 2009
Bottle: Light amber coloured, small off-white foamy layer; sweet fruity-malty nose with - presumably - traces of coriander or anis; mainly moderate sweetish flavour, accompanied by some faint bitterness, medium bodied; sweet-caramelly finish. Not bad, but quite monotonous.......
