This deep amber ale has rich & roasty malt flavors, a big hoppy character, citrus overtones (courtesy of the hops and our special brewers yeast) and modest alcohol.

Pours a dark amber colour with an off white head. Great hoppy, resinous nose. Some tree sap. Good malt backbone with the hoppy notes coming through. Slighty roasty. Good drinkability, a bit thin but still very good.

Amber beer, reasonable head dispersed fairly fast. Aroma mostly grapefruit with what could have been a touch of melon. Flavour much like aroma with a touch of malty sweetness.

12oz bottle ---> standard pint. Pours a nice deep amber with a frothy head that dissolves quickly. Nice floral aroma with some citrus. Palate is very light with little carbonation (too light for me). The closest thing I can describe the taste to is sweet tea, and I mean that in a good way. This one tastes more like an IPA without the bitterness. Great summertime beer and one you could put away far more than one a sitting. Really enjoyed this one.

Dark golden brew with a thin antique white head, lots of roasted malt in the bouquet, very hoppy flavor, fairly dry, quickly dissipating malt on the finish

This is a great toned-down version of AB that I can drink all day and not get plowed. But, it's not AB. A great beer nonetheless.

joejames (229) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 4, 2014
Bottle to shaker glass. Pours deep amber/red. Two finger off white head with lots of lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, pine. Taste is moderately sweet with citrus/pine bitterness. Body is medium which is strange for it’s ABV, moderate carbonation. Slightly creamy. Finishes resin West Coast hop bitterness, notes of pine, dark malts, and dark fruit. Good session ale.

I wasn’t too impressed with this brew. It had a light hoppy aroma, a little sweet also, with a creamy head. Taste was bitter sweet, and wasn’t too bad, but not great.

morri (224) - NORWAY - APR 25, 2013
330ml bottle from Ølhandleriet. Tiny white head. Clear, but slightly cloudy amber body. Aroma of light hops, citrus, yeast and butter. Quite sweet on the tongue, bitter long lasting taste.
