3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Copper orange with lasting but thinning tannish head. Aroma is caramel bomb with grass, earth bomb. Flavor follows suit, deceptively full palate to start (low bicarbonate, high chloride water?), all caramel sweet, touch toffee maybe, then goes dry as a bone bitter as hell lingering finish. It isn’t american bitter but the shock and awe it gives after that malt nose and all over caramel sweetness and malty full body is shocking. A timeless classic! Fruity aromatics go peach and other fruits as beer warms. Grass hop also comes forward from dry-hopping. Earthy, floral, just Goldings all over it. Burn in hell if you don’t like this one!
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2018 Ambrée très orangée, très claire et transparente, quasi plate. Elle dégage des arômes de miel et d'épices. Au niveau du goût elle présente une amertume assez peu présente, ce qui n'est pas pour me déplaire. cage.79 (27) - ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2018 500ml bottle. Deep copper, clear. Smell is delicious but can’t but my finger on it. Taste is caramel, burnt oranges, balanced bitterness, melts in mouth, quite smooth. It’s subtle but excellent beer. FunkyF (1397) - Örebro, SWEDEN - DEC 21, 2017
Flaska på La Pampa. Bärnstensfärgad med luftigt smutsvitt skum. Doft av kåda och barr. Söt med smak av barr. Piepenhenrich (1285) - Steinbach, GERMANY - DEC 20, 2017
Pours clear amber/copper with low white head. Very interesting, rather complex composition of flavors: a gentle bitterness, some malt, some booze and a curious but somehow fitting taste of bread or cookies. Good one! Nikokaoja (413) - Ljubljana, SLOVENIA - DEC 9, 2017
9. 12. 2017, Ljubljana. Bottled. Served a bit underchilled. Aroma held back, hints of corn. Colour is dark orange/amber with off-white head with some retention. Taste is somewhat malty sweet in the beginning, not intense, swallowing creeps in fine bittering which lingers and rings out slowly in the aftertaste. Nice. Med bodied, even thin a bit, easy dryish finish. Good under proper circumstances, but just not my favourite style.

Amber beer with lots of malt sweetness and some dry hoppiness in the finish. Dont really get its rating a fairly standard strong amber ale. Zilverenmaan (315) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - DEC 3, 2017
Aroma and taste mostly sweetish malts at first, some caramel, some apple, subtle fruity hops, somewhat grainy MF, light bitter finish. Starts of a bit too sweet for my taste but surprisingly complex. beergearbox (148) - London, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 29, 2017
