maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2012
Keg BrewDog Camden London. A mahogany coloured beer with a thick and tight whitish head. Sweet and hoppy aroma with a hint of woody spice. Same in the mouth. Chewy, hoppy and fruity. Quite complex and becomes over complicated.

jonas (8281) - Garching close to the monks, GERMANY - OCT 24, 2012
Rated in 2009 in the Shinkansen from bottle. Agressive pine hopped aroma. I assume it’s amber, anyway the owl on the Label is cute. Honey roasted sweet entry, pine and citric balance, retains some sticky restsugars, as a consequence a Solid body, fine sparklyness dissolves it on the tongue. Quite drinkable.

3.5
Idiosynkrasie (8220) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 11, 2013
330ml bottle. Very nice, clear, ruby reddish dark amber colour with average, frothy, minimally lacing, off-white head. Piney herbal hoppy aroma, caramel malty background with a nuttily touch. Taste is minimally sweet caramel malty with a nuttily touch, piney, and herbal hoppy overtones, a fruity touch of cherries.

teorn88 (8066) - Rimini, ITALY - MAY 26, 2012

3.2
BlackHaddock (7971) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2015
33cl bottle into a Chimay chalice at home on 10th Sep 2015. Cheers son for winning this for me. Off white topping to a reddy brown body. Malty, yeasty nose, Belgian like in fact. Some hop bitterness arrives in the aroma once the maltiness has elapsed a little, or I got used to it. The taste is also malts first with the hops coming through later, mild yeast presence in the background. Highly carbonated, a little too much for me to be honest, almost ’fizzy’ in nature. Dry finish to the taste, but the hop bitterness does not linger, the malts come strong again towards the end.

3.9
AshtonMcCobb (7049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 14, 2013
33cl bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours dark amber with a nice red hue. The nose has delicate caramel malt with just a hint of something red and fruity. The taste has sweet red malt with a biscuity bitterness just following it up, something creamy in there too. The palate is just about medium bodied with a creamy texture and a lovely balanced biscuity finish. Overall, great beer - well put together.

3.5
MrTipple (7004) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2014
Aroma: heavy caramel and bread malts. Appearance: hazy amber, small, creamy, white head. Taste: light sweet. Palate: sweets continue, caramel and bread malts, soft carbonation, lightly dry finish. Overall: quite a nice Amber Ale, yet nothing to write home about. Bottle at Yardbird, Hong Kong.
