COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
One of New Zealand’s first new generation pale ales and now something of a classic, Emerson’s 1812 is all about balance. Pouring a bright amber hue beneath a deep cream coloured head, the aroma hints at caramel and dark toffee balanced with a light citrusy fruitiness. Medium bodied, the palate first offers a marmalade-like combination of ripe citrus and caramelised malts before resiny hops come to the fore and lead into a lingering dry finish.

fonefan (49996) - VestJylland, DENMARK - MAR 18, 2007
Bottle. Light amber / orange color with a average to large frothy good lacing off-white head. Aroma is heavy hoppy, spruce needle, resinous ?? citrus, light pineapple. Flavor is moderate sweet and bitter with a average duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

Ungstrup (38138) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 24, 2005
An unclear orange beer with a nice orange head. The aroma is sweet with notes of coriander - like a Wit bier?!? The flavor is sweet and rather hoppy, but also quite spicy - with coriander standing out. The end is dry. Quite weird - a hoppy belgian ale? or is it because it was 6 months old or so, though still within the best before date.

joergen (28733) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 17, 2006
Bottle. Cloudy orange coloured with a huge and lasting off white head. Aroma of malts, fruits and hops. Sweet flavour of malts, fruits, citrus and hops. Nice IPA.

omhper (25351) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 2, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2005 Bottled. Hazily amber, rich, firm head. Rich grapefruity hop aroma. Sweet and firmly malty with rounded mouthfeel. Very aromatic with notes of curacao and flowers as well as caramel. Medium bitterness. Excellent!

3.1
Papsoe (25060) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 12, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Hazy amber with a small, but collapsing, beige head. Heavy carbonation. Hoppy nose. Rather light body with a touch of caramel malt. Quite dry and dominated by the aroma hops also leaving some bitterness. Very accessible IPA, but not overly thrilling. 121105

Leighton (21839) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2016
Bottle shared at the 2015 edition of the chriso Pre-GBBF tasting - London. Pulled from the chriso rotter, I believe. Cheers! Pours clear, deep gold with a creamy, white head. Plenty of bready malts here, along with lightly tangy citrus fruits. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Moderately sweet on the finish, with simple bready malts predominating. A little too aged but OK.

2.8
harrisoni (18983) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2007
500ml bottle from Phil_L. Copper colour with thick beige head. Decent hop/malt aroma. Oddish IPA. Melon fruit. Over carbonated, odd hop, rich melon tropical fruit. Hop is a bit unbalanced, bit syrupy on malts. Just a bit odd. Nice melon/tangerine/passionfruit, but odd sickly flavour and not a great aroma lets it down. Vegetal aroma.

2.6
rlgk (18851) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 8, 2015
Bottle at Chris and Ruth’s Shindig 2015. Clear amber beer with a rich off white head. Malty caramel aroma, grassy, hay, caramel, floral notes. Hoppy bready flavor, grassy, hay, biscuit notes. Ok beer.

Oakes (18199) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 22, 2010
Light golden colour. The aroma is light and somewhat mushroomy. Light palate with caramel accents. A little bit bland.

3.3
MiP (15943) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2005
Bottle. Aroma has some flowery fruitiness. Some skub-op-is, lime? Cloudy dark copper colour. Small white head. Aromatic hoppiness in flavour, some maltiness. Dusty aftertaste.
