Svesse (6157) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAY 9, 2011
(Bottle, Bishop’s Arms Folkungagatan, Stockholm) Dark amber colour with brief, frothy, beige head. Malty nose with caramel, dark bread, dried fruit, spicy hops and hints of cinnamon. Malty taste with notes of caramel, toasty malt, raisins, wort and slightly spicy hops in the finish. Medium body, with a touch of sweetness. Not really mind blowing, but balanced and tasty.

I grabbed this beer from an Ingels on my way to backpack the Foothills Trail. It might have been because we were drinking it while camping, but this seemed like a very fully bodied, good tasting beer. The malt and hop aroma were both a tad heavy, which is what I look for in a beer. Thick dark color with a light tan head that dies with time. Nothing beats it after a long day of hiking in the rain.

Bottled@Bishops Arms Vasagatan, Stockholm. Ruby red colour, small head. Aroma is caramel, bready malts, and also has some slight hoppyness. Flavour is caramelly, bready, biscuity along with some grassy and mildly floral hoppy notes. Mild cardboardy dryness as well.

Average and boring amber ale. Lightly sweet caramel flavor and aroma. Some homebrew funk to it but reasonably drinkable. Medium bodied.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass. The beer pours a clear copper/amber color with a large foamy off white head that recedes slowly leaving behind very little lacing. Not much going on in the nose, lightly malty with hints of caramel and toasted bread. Some faint fruity notes, and just a hint of floral hops. The flavor is clean; slightly bready, with hints of caramel and just a hint of citrusy hops. There is a small metallic off flavor that becomes more noticable as the beer warms. Light/medium bodied and moderately carbonated. Easy to drink My overall impression is that this is not a bad beer, but it is not a terrific beer either. Nothing about this beer tempts me to go pour another. In a word... Meh

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 2, 2010
Appearance: clear ambers and polished copper much like a shiny penny. Faintly tinged coppery head fades into a solid blanket. Swirls with a smidge of lace.
Nose: malty crunchy sweetness; definitely malt forward. Apple skins, cinnamon, along with wafer thin maple crunchies. Brown sugar. A whisper of dry wood and cocoa powder which is there and then gone again. Little to no discernable hops.
Palate: smooth frothy mouthfeel where malt is the star of the show from first quaff to last. Apples, cinnamon, and fleeting brown spice. Has the essence of autumn; leaves turning color and that crisp cool feeling to the air. Raisin bread crust. Dry finish with cocoa powder in the back. Spiced apples mingle with cinnamon sticks mingle with raisin bread mingles with cocoa powder for an amazing tryst that works.
Final Thoughts: not what I was expecting. Seeing as the amber style is wonderfully diverse, she was tasty nonetheless in many new and different ways. I’ve heard many good things about Thomas Creek and so far she is measuring up.

EithCubes (4902) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 24, 2010
Bottle. Toast., grain, aromatic hops in the nose.Sticky, maybe with some chocolate. Red-tinged chestnut pour with medium clarity, has a nice rocky tan head. Toffee and light chocolate taste in with mildly nutty, very lightly acidic tones, has very low bitterness and slight sweetness for balance, some nice gritty earthen tones but more like sand than clay or potting soil. Mildly herbal, woodsy. Medium body. Good!

glorydaze (34) - Savannah, Georgia, USA - OCT 24, 2010
Bottle. Dark deep amber color with a rose aroma. Very malty, sweet start with a medium hops finish. Not bad for the under $7 price I paid for it. I could buy this again.
