rickgordon (3845) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 15, 2006
[Can] Chestnut brown colour. Fluffy head. Ashy, bit smokey nose, with a dry, cellary feel. Dark malty flavour profile, bit roasty with caramel notes. Long flavour.

D (577) - Gdynia, POLAND - AUG 11, 2006
Red colour, lasting head. Great fruity taste, with some bitterness in finish. Very refreshing alt, awesome.

Mungo (2471) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2006
Bottle (from Bitter Virtue, BB Sep 06). Earthy sweet malt and some woodsy hops. Unfortunately there is a metallic bitterness and boiled cardboardy sweetness here suggesting this would be rather better before pasteurisation.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 15, 2006
Rich malt aroma, almost candy-like, woody too, copper, with a small cream head. Woody/malty taste, almonds, as well. Light bodied, bitterness is well placed. Great! Thanks Radek.

Gorbalev (2999) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 3, 2006
Shared by Radek on Canada Day ’06 with the usual fine folks. Very dark yellow, creamy white head. Malty, soft hops in mild aroma. Same goes for taste - some malt, some soft hops. Creamy mouthfeel. A little nutty. Didn’t leave much of an impression.

GregClow (2957) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 2, 2006
Bottle shared with the usual suspects - courtesy of Radek. Light amber with a moderate white head. Nose is sweet and malty, perhaps a bit of fruitiness. Flavour seemed a bit stale to me, but nice - albeit simple - with some mild roasty malt, a bit of nutiness, and a thinly hopped finish. Obviously a well made beer, but lacking... something.

HogTownHarry (6199) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUL 1, 2006
Bottle (500ml). Shared with GregClow, tupalev, DougShoemaker, mds, Radek and others - Radek’s bottle. Poured clear copper with a decent foamy white head. Mild but pleasing aroma of light roast malt, grain, wood and some tangy yeast. Light roasty taste, again a little woody, soft and simple, not long on the palate, finishes somewhat bitter - I liked it, maybe not tons, but I liked it.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 23, 2006
Bottle. A drinkable if a little boring alt. Quite clean and dry, with some slight nuttyness and some bitter hops in the finish. Drinkable, but average.

EithCubes (5205) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 17, 2006
Bottle. Clear copper pour, creamy beige head. Caramel with toffee and a hint of wood. Velvety smooth, creamy/watery body. Both bitterness and sweetness are restrained, this is middle-of-the-road. Quite pleasant – probably the smoothest and mildest of the Alts I’ve tried recently - but doesn’t knock my socks off. Thanks to MoritzF!

harrisoni (14826) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 9, 2006
500ml bottle from Utobeer. Moderate sourness, moderate charcoal and dark malts. It’s an interesting mix between a dunkel and an English old ale. Dunkel aroma with a bit more sourness. Mouthfeel is like a dark lager with lemon charcoal liquorice finish. Just lacks a bit of depth.
