MiP (13798) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 20, 2009
Draught at the brewpub. Weak fruity aroma. Almost clear dark amber colour. The flavour starts off fruity, then turns slightly roasted. OK clean, rather thin mouthfeel, especially if it is supposed to be a strong beer.

Dorqui (2113) - Brescia, ITALY - JUL 26, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2007 Bottled 0,33L. Creamy and adherent head of good persistence. Reddish and orange color with discreet fizz and an elegant opaque aspect. Torrefy scent of cereals and singed malt. Discreetly dry taste with a pleasant and decided alcoholic content but not too excessive. Bitterish and coolness final.

KnutAlbert (6267) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 10, 2007
Bottled in Firenze. I don’t know if this is an alt, it is more like those sweetish "Irish" ales. Mostly for those who have a sweet tooth. A little sourness or dryness from hops in the finish, but neither well balanced nor very exiting.

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - DEC 4, 2006
Dark red colour, white foam. Notes of caramel and hops in the nose. malty flavour balanced by a good hopping. Nice beer.

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - DEC 12, 2005
Fine though disappearing tan head, dark amber colored body. Nice and balanced aroma of malt, hop and nut with chocolate tones. Pretty thin flavor of rye with a hoppy bitterness and a dry end. All right, but not the most interesting, and could use some more body.

CamdenD (1094) - Madrid, SPAIN - OCT 29, 2005
This is an impressive red ale. It’s got nice, nice hops on the nose and tongue. It is, however, well-balanced and drinkable. Impressive outing for Q Beer.

Ungstrup (29848) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 16, 2005
An unclear orange beer with an orange head. The aroma is sweet with notes of honey and spices. The flavor is slightly weak, but has notes of wood, honey, and spices, leading to a dry. Nice, but I’d like a bit more powerful flavor. Thanks Alex (fiulijn) for this one.

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - SEP 21, 2005
Slight malty nose, with pronounced notes of english tea. Reddish body, with a small off-white head. Quite hoppy flavor, with a slight malty touch, tea again.
