bhensonb (13984) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 1, 2007
Something of a malt aroma with citrus hop, but it leaves something of a floral impression? Very light amber color with a decently frothy near-white head. It did some lacing. Starts with a slight sour, perhaps medicinal, characteristic, reminiscent of some Siletz products, but not so strong. Definitely malt, and the finish seems decently bitter. Relatively dry. Seems a bit thin, but it’s nicely drinkable.

Drake (11605) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 7, 2011
12 ounce bottle from Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA. That’s Virginia, where someone located in the Capitol of the Confederacy gave label approval to a label featuring a Union general. It seems reconciliation truly is complete. Pours a clear copper color with a large frothy offwhite head that quickly dissipates leaving a few specks of lacing. Aroma of big caramel and butterscotch notes and floral hops. The taste is floral hops, caramel, some toastiness and a bitter finish. Medium bodied. Pretty drinkable.

madsberg (11360) - Søborg, DENMARK - FEB 12, 2006
Bottled: Orange farvet. Er let tåget. Har et lyst beige skum, med en høj tæthed. Holder godt. Medium karbonering. Citrus, let frugt and let caramel i aromaen. Smagen er let humlet og blomstret. Har noget sødme og frugtighed. Er lidt bitter i enden. Tør og medium fylde. God balance. Tak til Ungstrup for denne øl fra hans overskudslager.
