pintbypint (2801) - Edmonton, Alberta, - DEC 2, 2012
330ml brown bottle. Orange pour, clingy white cap and decent lacing. Nose has some toasty malt, caramel. Taste is grainy and lightly toasty with light caramel notes. Dry finish, lingering grains. Light bodied, average carbonation. Overall, not very exiciting, very underhopped.

ACHops (900) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 29, 2015
On tap @ Garibaldi Lift Co. Pours medium reddish copper with thin off white head. Aroma is lightly sweet oaky caramel malt. Taste is similar: decently rich chewy amber malt, only a hint of hops to balance. Nice and refreshing after a day of skiing, but pretty bland overall.

laiti (6567) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 2, 2015
33 cl bottle @ wPBF Ⅲ
Aroma has sticky malty tones, ripe fruits and resin. Also wood and hints of minerals. Flavour has cardboard, mellow resiny hops and woody notes. Finishes with nothing. Aroma was promising but flavour is quite short and empty. Perhaps too old?

TBone (13539) - Pori, FINLAND - JAN 2, 2015
Bottle at wpbf. Amber color, small off-white head. Ryeish, light bourbon in the nose. Light-bodied to medium-bodied. Caramel, whiskey and grass. Perhaps not very fresh.

olio (7089) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 2, 2015
33 cl bottle @ wPBF III.
Pours dark golden color with a small head. Malty aroma, nutty and slightly fruity aroma. Fruity flavor, sweet caramel, some mild hay and malt. Feels a bit old and cardboard-y, sadly.

omhper (20568) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JAN 2, 2015
Bottled at Petalax Beer Festival, from Corner Pub, Beijing. Hazy amber, small head. Caramelly cardboard aroma. Mid sweet with medium body and rounded mouthfeel. Caramel and what could pass as cheap whiskey, but comes out more as wet paper. Low bitterness.

Listigovers (423) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 6, 2014
Reddish amber with a thin white head. Clear. Easy to drink with a somewhat thin body. Mild grain aftertaste, slight hop presence gives dryness but not too much bitterness. Sweet aroma. Nothing special but refreshing and clean with no off flavours.

Masterkush7 (576) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 26, 2014
A dark amber beer with a small, dense off-white to light beige head. Rather weak aroma and flavor, some caramel maltyness going on all the way, a touch of grains as well, but all very subdued. There’s also some bitterness, but again, not much. Medium body, soft carbonation, with a short finish. Well, what can I say? It certainly isn’t a bad one, but it’s utterly dull, certainly not a beer I’d choose to have again if there were other choice ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TheRatKing (122) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 2, 2014
Pours a lovely ruby colour with minimal head. Gentle, resiny hops on the nose. Flavour is mild hops, some sweetness, but a bit on the bland side. Needs more hops to really come out.

Bottle sample at Fass Beer Brewhouse, Northern beer trip February 2014. Thanks Ariel. Headless hazy amber. honey, caramel and candy aroma, candy, sweet, overly oxidized taste. Syrupy texture, medium body, sweet finish.
