Disappearing head, dark orange body. Sweet toffee aroma, somewhat sticky and cloying. Sweet toffeish at first in the flavor with some bitterness knocking on the door. Not very interesting.

Amber color. Some malt aroma. Malt and caramel flavor, with a light but nice hoppy touch, and a reasonable ending bitterness.

Golden to amber color. Some fudge aroma, light caramel and paper. The flavor is lacking of malt and hop, but the body is quite strong and the bitterness high.

omhper (19976) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 9, 2005
Bottled. Brownish amber, brief head. Light citrusy nose with a hint of metal. Dry with clean, hard, primitive malt character. Some toffee and oranges. Grassy, salty finish with medium bitterness. Nice flavourwise, but the mouthfeel is fizzy and harsh.

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 15, 2005
Thanks to matta for this. Pours deep copper with medium white head. Aroma of malt, caramel, slight hops. Tastes malty, with a fruity, caramel element and some finishing hops. Very smooth palate, and some honey at culmination.

Aubrey (3453) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - FEB 4, 2005
Amber-orange hue. Light- to medium-bodied. Little nip of noticeable alcohol. Grainy malts with very little sweetness. Notes of toasted bread and burnt caramel. Spicy, tea-like hops, with elements of bitter flowers. Other notes of metal, pear, lemon grass and light tobacco. Piques the curiosity.
