Loose bottle at HyVee. Interesting light brown color, kicks up a big foamy head, but maybe my glass had some dust in it. Smell is low on malts, with just a hint of spice, and the hops seem subdued so far. Tasting, though, really offers a hit on my tongue. First I think it’s from having a lot of rye, but it seems most of this is from the hop. Bitterness is more from pungency, or like holding a wet hop cone in one’s teeth. Acidic, and maybe not ideal for most beer drinkers. But for hop lovers who want to try a different hop, this is an eye-opener. Malt leaves a lot of stickiness on my lips. Hop at finish offers a sprig of mint.

madvike (2759) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 2, 2013
Bottle - Pours dark copper with a foamy off-white head. Nose is dry bready malt and spicy rye, spicy and piney hops, and a bit of sweetness. Taste is dry and spicy, with a bit of tropical fruitiness, a touch of pine, and a dry, grassy finish. Slick and medium-bodied, with lowish carbonation. Pretty smooth, and teetering the line between dry and sweet. Not too shabby.

Drank from a bottle camping in Minnesota. Nice flavor but expected a little more. Pretty decent, but prefer Schells other offerings much more. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a beautiful amber with a thick crown of tan foam. Nose is of malt. Nice and creamy on the palate, the taste is very well balanced between its malt backbone and its hop accents with very little bitterness. This flavorful beer is a good companion to a variety of soups and sandwiches.

Ungstrup (29485) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 28, 2013
Bottled. A brown beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma has notes of malt and caramel. the flavor is sweet with notes of hops, citrus fruits, malt, and caramel, leading to a bitter finish. Thanks yespr for sharing.

12 oz bottle pours a clear dark orange color with off-white head and good lacing. Aroma has lots of caramel, some dark fruits, slight rye, and a bit of hops. Taste is on the sweet and fruity side with faint bitterness in the finish. Body is medium with average carbonation. Enjoyable and better than I expected.

deyholla (6737) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - APR 27, 2013
Bottle thanks to a trade! Pours a clear very deep amber with a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of rye and sweet grains with a bit of light fruits. Flavor is very similar with rye and sweet grains throughout with just a hint of light fruits in the finish.

CLevar (376) - Minnesota, USA - APR 6, 2013
Pour is a fairly dark caramel, minimal off white head, sparse lacing. Aroma is caramel and bready malt, light pine and citrus hops. Biscuit malt. Taste is a fair bit of caramel and brown sugar malt, toast, pine hop finish. A bit of spice, perhaps from the rye, is present in the taste but absent in the aroma. Slightly sweeter than I would have preferred.
