Ungstrup (35695) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 1, 2006
An amber beer with a disappearing orange head. The aroma is sweet spicy - which includes notes of ginger, but also light notes of oranges. The flavor is sweet malty and again quite spicy with ginger standing out.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 7, 2006
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Clear amber with an off-white head. Aroma of caramel. Medium body with some caramel and then nothing. This beer really fades to become bland and superflouos. 290806

BeerandBlues2 (12479) - Escondido, California, USA - JAN 14, 2006
12-oz. bottle batch 7040. Pours amber with a small rocky off-white head and lined lacing. Yeast (dough) and light fruity hop aroma, sweet caramel malt and buttery, some sour DMS notes. Medium bitter and acidic, slightly astringent hoppy and earthy yeast flavor, caramel malt and butterscotch, DMS notes. Medium bodied and slightly dry, spicy palate.

Dogbrick (12247) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 27, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2005 Thanks to Darkover for the trade. Dark orange/copper color with a thin and lasting off-white head. Thin lacing. Aroma of sweet malt and maple syrup. Light-bodied and kind of creamy with malt and caramel flavors outright. There is a light hops bitterness in the background as well as a hint of roastiness. The finish is very sweet and lingering. Despite my personal hope that they would do something a little more "dramatic" to celebrate, this is a well-made beer and in the upper eschelon for the style. Congrats to Bellís on 20 years!

hopdog (11888) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 2, 2005
Bottles acquired in a few trades. Poured a deeper and cloudy amber color with a large sized off white head. Subtle aromas of caramel, oranges, and dough. Tastes of oranges, caramel, toffee, and cookie dough. Flavors definitely stronger than the aromas. Medium sweet with a light hopiness.

Sammy (11501) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 20, 2005
Itís an experiment of sorts. Peachy colour and thereís head and lace. Strong carbonation. Definite hop and bittterness, and lemon peel, overall drying finish.

daknole (10920) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - SEP 8, 2009
Bottle. Amber pour. Lots of caramel malt and some oxidation in the nose. Flavor is malty and oxidized. drinkable still, but not all that great.
