Hopmaestro (1141) - Örebro, SWEDEN - AUG 28, 2015
Backlog from lost & found notes: An aroma of older flowers and some earth. Sweet and malty. Taste is surprisingly fresh for being an amber, toffee, peaches, some ripe fruits, flowers and leaves.

12oz bottle poured to pint glass. Off white head one finger thick, fades quickly, moderate lacing. Smells of overripe citrus and sweet bread. Fruity sweet flavor with nice roasted malts follow through. Nice linger of hops bitterness and alcohol warmth on the back end.

Malts are sweet caramel and light toast up front, and there is some sweet orange and citrus rinds behind. Flavor has is little more sweet malts and orange, and just a touch of floral hops are added. It seems as though this is going to turn too sweet, though it keeps itself pretty well balanced.

annunz123 (945) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 21, 2014
I don’t get the lack of love on the ratings I see here. Malty, nutty aroma with some citrus hops. Flavor starts sweet and fruity, with caramel, toffee, and citrus. Hoppy, bitter finish with citrus, pine, and some alcohol. Kind of a cross between an amber ale and an IPA, and it works

"An imperial amber in a bomber. fuller (but not really better) feel from the jacked up abv. bitter citric hops and sweet malt seem a bit confused and muddled. Not sure where this brewer is going. When they were new, the beers were too slick. Now they seem unfocused, muddled, directionless. Eh. Not worth a bomber."

2011 backlog. 12oz bottle. Pours hazy amber with a one finger beige head. The nose is caramel and fruity citrus. The taste is toffee, molasses, overripe citrus and some faint resin in the finish. Medium bodied. Pretty good Red. 3.4
