Ungstrup (29283) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 29, 2007
Bottled. A copper colored beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet malty with primary notes of caramel, but also a light spicy touch. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of caramel and a spicy note of coriander.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2007
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Courtesy of Degarth. Clear, amber golden with a small, off-white head. Lightly sweet, caramelish nose. Medium body with dry and lightly burned caramel and some bittering hops in the finish. I can see how this is labelled as a märzen, it’s just SO different from a German example of the style. 280507

bhensonb (11047) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 22, 2006
Light malty aroma. Light amber color. Nice whitish head. Starts with malt, continues with malt, and finishes with malt. There is some hop in the finish somewhere, but seriously this is a malty ale. Not sure that the bitter lasts, but it’s arguable. Prefer the IPA.

Tmoney99 (10660) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 24, 2006
Bottle from Cock & Bull, Sarasota, FL. Poured clear dark amber color with an average frothy white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate sweet malty aroma. Medium body. Medium balanced flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Drinkable beer.

Drake (8536) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 3, 2009
12 ounce bottle from a Farm Fresh somewhere in Virginia Beach, VA. Pours an orange-copper color with tiny floating particles. Small head with fair head retention and lacing. Sweet malty aroma with caramel and apple-like fruit notes. Taste is green apple, pear, caramel, butter. Thin and watery.

Dogbrick (8113) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 9, 2007
Bottle from Albertson’s in Tehachapi, CA. The beer is a clear pale amber color with a medium off-white head that dissipates steadily. Spotty lacing. Aroma of sweet malt and bread. Light, smooth body with a metallic character and overly saccharine sweet malt flavor. Touches of fruit as well. The finish is cloyingly sweet malt and mercifully short. Not very enjoyable overall.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 7, 2009
Pours copper with an off white head. Smells of caramel and grapes. Tastes of caramel, grapes, some spicy hints.

drowland (6024) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - JUN 11, 2008
Unfortunately had to drink straight from the bottle. Slight malty aroma (for what I could get anyway) and a malty taste with a mouthfeel that lingered a bit like cream.

Braudog (5741) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Bottle. Pours more of a gold color than amber. Slightly funky "green bottle" nose, even though it didn’t come from a green bottle. DRinks with a bit of a corny taste, but is drinkable enough, cleanly made, and with a crisp finish. (#4888, 1/4/2013)

PorterPounder (5538) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 13, 2006
Albertson’s Liquor Store, Tallahassee, Fl. - 12 oz bottle. Darl copper pour, tight white head. Brief maple syrup aroma, faint hints of spruce. Some nuttiness in the flavor with a bit of muted citrus and a bit of ripening vegetables in the finish. Slightly artificial tasting though. Mouthfeel, thick enough. Drinkable and would do in a pinch.
