Ungstrup (31471) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 3, 2010
Can. A hazy amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of straw, spicy hops, and a boring malt profile. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, cardboard, and some citrusy hops, leading to a lightly bitter finish. Thanks fiulijn for sharing.

Can 50 cl. Courtesy of fiulijn. Pours a clear amber with a small off-white head. Subdued aroma, a little fruit and caramel. Medium body, same thing - fruit and caramel, lightly sweet with a subdued but present bitterness. Pleasantly drinkable. 040310

omhper (21892) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 20, 2010
Draught in Kimberley, BC. Clear amber, creamy head. Neutral nose. Light bodied with clean, simplistic crystal malt drowning in acidic lemon. Besides the obvious flaws there is not much noteworthy going on. A complete let down.

2010-04-03, can, 6-3-5-2-11
Hazy amber color. Small head. The aroma has some nice malt and hop, yet simple, with wet paper too. Thin body, metallic caramel flavor, correct bitterness.

2010-03-23, draught at the Moonraker, New Westminster
Amber color. Light fruity aroma. Simple flavor, some caramel, a bit metallic and papery, with some light fruity hopping. Pleasant but simple.

brokensail (14042) - San Leandro, California, USA - AUG 31, 2014
Can @ AirBNB Arts Colony. Rich amber pour with a white head. Aroma is sort of nutty and toasty. A lot of caramel and bread, too. Slight grassy hop notes and dough. Flavor is mostly sweet caramel malts and bread. Slight cream and vanilla. A decent floral hop character. Mild red fruit esters, grass, and earthy bitterness. Not half bad.

Oakes (13961) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 17, 2005
Bright amber colour. Light Willamette and caramel aroma. Body is moderate; flavour light and sweetish - Willamette and caramel again.

Lubiere (11586) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 22, 2006
Amber ale with reddish hues, and a good off-white head. Sweet caramel malt with notes of butterscotch. A bit sulfury. In mouth, sweet malt, caramel and butterscotch, wiht very light hops, and rather light bodied. Merci, JM!

mcberko (10569) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 14, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2011 500mL can - pours a brownish amber. Flavour is nuts, citrus, and kind of metallic (not in that bad a way). Refreshing and pleasant Tree brew.
