Ungstrup (29851) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 14, 2009
Draft at the alehous in Walnut Creek. A hazy amber beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma has notes of bread, caramel, and a touch of malt. The flavor is sweet, but with some weird off-notes, and more normal notes of caramel and malt - is it the malt base that makes it weird? I’m not a fan.

gnoff (7983) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - APR 27, 2011
Draught as a 5 oz sampler at Pyramid in Sacramento, CA, on April 23, 2011
As "Alehouse Amber Ale"
Shady amber color, off-white head. Sweet, hoppy, malty, somewhat roasted taste. Moussy mouthfeel. A bit roasted aftertaste with hints of coffee, turns more fruity in the end. Medium bitterness. Fruity but also somewhat stale scent with sewage hints.

badlizard (5537) - Berkeley, California, USA - AUG 9, 2009
Copper brown with a fizzy white head. Pleasant floral malty aroma but a tragically soapy taste. Bluck.

JaBier (5011) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - SEP 7, 2010

Ferris (5009) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 7, 2012
Draft - Mild roasted malt nose with a touch of spice. Cloudy amber with very rich head. In the days where more is more the simplicity of this beer is nice. Malty and nutty with no hops or bitterness. A bit too light on body but a nice example of an amber.
