Holdwine (1111) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 22, 2003
Not always a big amber fan, but this one works. Beautiful amber hues as advertised. As expected, more malty, nice roasted flavor. Drinks and finishs easily.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 21, 2003
This beer flow's into the glass with a deep red brown body topped by a thick head with a good amount of lace. The appearance is the only better than average thing about this beer. The aroma is sour and slightly skunky with malty accents. The flavor is slightly sour and bitter with a good maltiness and a slightly bitter finish. Light to medium bodied, smooth and slightly dry.

Clear amber color with a nice head and malty aroma. Strong malt flavors, almost smokey. Very subtle hops. Robust sweetness that I like.

Nice color, but pretty run of the mill. A little malty, but nothing special. No better than Killians(much cheaper) IMO.

Indra (2686) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - MAR 7, 2003
Sweet, slightly toasted and caramel malt aroma. Deep amber in color and a lasting, fairly creamy head. Flavor is malty, again faintly toasted and sweet caramel. Very lightly spicy bitterness comes in a bit towards the finish. Palate is a little on the fizzy side, body is light to medium. Drinkable but surely not exciting.

pivo (2617) - GERMANY - MAR 2, 2003
On tap: looks like they were pouring this with a nitro tap by looking at the head. If not, that's a pretty impressive head! Nice color too - a clear, but deep orangy amber. Too bad the appearance was the best part of this beer. Almost no nose. I was getting distinct sulfur tones in the body that were generally unpleasant. Otherwise a light, caramelly malt flavor with little bitterness. Thin body but with a creamy mouth feel.

YogiBeera (2532) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 2, 2003
Tried this in a netherland restaurant called "de brave Hendrik" in Hamburg, really a funny but also bad headache causing evening - I*m still suffering! Nice bricket red color with a little smooth layer of a head. Hoppy nose - nutty taste with some hops - medium lasting bitter aftertaste. Not bad but nothing more than average.

boto (1921) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - MAR 1, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2011 Draught: This one poured a clear amber color. It had a tight, white nitro head. Almost solid lacing down the glass. The aroma was lighter, but decent. Somewhat sweet, caramel, floral. The taste is OK. A bit creamy. Fairly neutral on the bitter/sweetness divide. Malts, faint fruits. Hint of roast. Drinkable.
