daknole (10280) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - FEB 12, 2010
Orangish/amber pour. Small head. Toffee, caramel, bread and some grassy hops in the aroma. Flavor is malty and a tad sweet and the hops offset the sweetness nicely. Pretty ok for the style.

hopscotch (10080) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 9, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 6, 2006 Bottle... NTB Ernesto Festo ’06... Drank this baby at about 2 AM on Friday, September 1st. Steady 60 mph wind and rain pounding the front of the beach house. Sliding glass door is bulging, but not breaking... and I’m drinking... a clear copper lager with a mid-sized, fizzy, white head. Lots of sticky, melted caramel in the aroma. Caramely, malty-sweet flavor. Medium-bodied and milky with modest carbonation. Malty, gummy finish. Yum! Thanks kenb!

adnielsen (10070) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 1, 2013
Bottle @ home picked up @ Wilbur’s Foco. Pours a dark rust orange appearance with an off white head. Caramel, toasted malty, slightly floral, herbal hoppy aroma. A little chewy malty, light bubblegum, a bit zesty yeasty, caramel flavor. Pretty decent beer.

355mL thx to Xanny. Pours amber. Weak head. Spotty lace. Nose is vegetal, maple candy, toffee, strawberry. A bit weak. Taste is husky grain, vegetal/DMS, toffee. Odd. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Rune (9344) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 8, 2011
One-third pint, gravicask at USA Cask Ale Bar, GBBF’11. Amber-dark brown to look at, dotted spots at the glass. Rather inviting smell of dark sweet malts. Dried fruits mixed with sweet caramel in flavour, notes of butter. Malty endnotes. OK, if not a bit unusual for an Octoberfest bier (London, 04.08.2011).

Bottle. Sour milk and caramel malt aroma. Golden yellow with large head. Lightly sour caramel malt flavor. Wow - a Oktober-cream ale.

Dark orange appearance. Fizzy and thin, unflavorful. Some oranges, fruit and weeds... grassy weeds. Not enjoyed.

16oz on tap. Good thin foamy off-white head. Clear orange / amber color. Good lace. Lighter, crisp carbonation. Lighter body. Toasty caramel malt aroma, sweet grains. Satisfying bitterness, nice to wash down a philly cheese steak with, but not much to this
