3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From notes still on my phone from the 2011 MWBF. I’d forgotten I’d ever had this. Another red beer with a dog name on it, I wonder where that started. Pours orange color, kind of hazy from the bottle. A little foam. A nice malty smell with more supporting hops, perhaps orange and mango flavor. Very spritzy texture. Taste still has tropical juice instead of the regular citrus hop. Now there’s a bit of frizzy orange juice after all. Pretty amazing.

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.

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."

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rated on 6-07-2011 (Bottle) This beer has a small fizzy ivory head with a short retention, transparent amber body, fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and one ring of lacing. The aroma is caramel malt, citrus, pine hops, and apples. The taste is semi-crisp, lightly bitter, citrus, pine hops, and a hint of apples. The mouthfeel is smooth and this is a medium bodied beer. I did not get any "big hoppy flavor" as the deScription says. It is somewhat crisp and refreshing on a hot summer day.

Bärnstensfärgad med litet ljust skum. Doftar både humle och malt och i smaken finns det humle och lite karamell malt! Ok öl!
