Ungstrup (28458) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 18, 2007
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a light orange head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of peaches and grapefruit, as well as light notes of alcohol. The flavor is sweet malty with lots of fruit - somewhat fruit punchy, leading to a slightly bitter end.

bhensonb (10361) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 20, 2006
Light evergreen/citrus aroma. Nice amber color, but the thinnest head possible. Starts with some pine, but malt immediately arrives. The good news is that a citrus hop finish is there. There is malt along with the citrus, but it’s a very good finish. It’s a very good pale ale, and it verges on IPA hoppiness. I understand the comments about brown sugar and honey, but in my mouth they flow away quickly. So it’s dry/astingent. This is really good pale ale. Really. Good.

Bottled (thx to Degarth for the trade). Amber coloured. Clear. Dense light brown head. Citrus, herbs and light flowers. A bit subdued. Flavour is light spiced, herbal, sweet and fruity. Medium to light bodied. Light bitter end. Very easy to drink.

Drake (7950) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 3, 2009
12 ounce bottle from a Farm Fresh somewhere. Pours a copper color with a thin head. Fair head retention and lacing. Muddled aroma of near nothingness. A little soap, nuttiness and stale leafy hops. Taste is bitter citrus hops and soap. Thin-medium bodied.

Dogbrick (7253) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 9, 2007
Bottle from Albertson’s in Tehachapi, CA. Pours a slightly hazed golden-amber color with a medium thin ivory head that dissipates fairly quickly. Spotty lacing. The aroma is mildly malty with some hops and caramel. Medium-bodied with fruity hops and sweet caramel flavors. The finish is dry with a slightly floral hops aftertaste. Barely average overall.

bb (6719) - Alamo, California, USA - OCT 5, 2006
Bottle. Amber beer with an off-white head. Citrus and grassy hop aroma. Citrus and caramel malt flavor. Very basic, nothing bad, just nothing stands out. Some earthiness.
