Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 9, 2003
Amber-burgundy colour. Aroma is light, with treacle notes and a slight peach fruitiness. The body is light, but offers a vibrant character. Toffee and light orange notes abound, but are drowned out by too much alcohol in the finish.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - DEC 2, 2003
Awsome clear red color. Very fruity nose...like sticking your head in a basket of dried fruit. Carmel sweet malt, and maybe a bit too much sweetness. Very fruity flavor as well. Not bad. A possible lay-away.

Ungstrup (29849) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 22, 2003
A hazy brown beer with a beutiful beige head. The aroma is fruity with notes yeast and apples. The flavor is very complex with a good malty sweetness, yeast, apples, and spices.

Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - NOV 20, 2003
Hazy brown coloured. Fruity aroma of green apples. Complex malty and fruity flavour with a touch of mint chocolate. Dry finish. A truly complex and interesting brew.

jfm (1724) - Holbæk, DENMARK - NOV 20, 2003
UPDATED: APR 24, 2004 Deep amber/Brown color with a slightly grey or brownish head. The taste is spices, licorice and slightly bitter finish.

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - OCT 19, 2003
Spices and light lactic aroma. Redbrown color, light brown head, fair lace. Licorice, spices, yeasty, bitter, alcohol finish. This 75cl bottle just was too much for me, couldn't finish it.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 13, 2003
Brown color which when held to the light reveals a nice dark amber hue. Light tan creamy looking head. Candied date aroma. Caramel, oak and alcohol flavors. Harsh and overbearing when cool. Seems to mellow, as it warms. Nice malty linger.

3fourths (8236) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 5, 2003
Dark clear brown. Smells and drinks like an English brown. Vanilla, maple, wood, sweat socks in the aroma and flavor. Somewhat syrupy, and a little bitter. Chemicaly-woody finish.
