On keg at The BrewDog Bar, Edinburgh. Pours a dark amber colour with a fair light tan head. Aroma of pine, pineapple and chocolate. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Nice.

mzaar (2999) - Varberg, SWEDEN - JUN 6, 2013
Flaska @ Nami, Varberg. Det r godis att stta nsan till glaset med alla de tropiska frukter som ryms dr. Karamell ligger och lurar i bakgrunden. Smaken r nstan lika bra, med banan, grape, pple, apelsin, karamell. Finns en alkoholton, som av sherry, som tar ner betyget ett steg.

willisread (2948) - Owensboro, Kentucky, USA - FEB 21, 2015
330ml bottle from Seijo Ishi in Shinjuku station. Poured into a shaker pint. Deep amber and rich brown color with a nice tan head. One of the darkest ambers I have experienced. Nice lacing for an amber. Nice prune, raisin aromas on the nose with vanilla, cinnamon, cardamon, toasted malt and caramel undertones. A bit of resin and pine needles come through as well. Nice balanced between malt sweetness with a touch of bitterness from the hops. Very well-balanced amber. Medium body with a nice medium dry finish.

TET (2793) - Kaarina, FINLAND - DEC 16, 2012
A sligthly red, brown beer with a medium and beige head. Aroma of toffee and some caramell malts, fruits, aromatic, wet exotic wood and some citrusfruits. Taste is sligthly toffeeish, wood, medium bitterness and thus the taste is quite dry, some citrusfruits. Medium bodied, quite smooth carbonation. Quite nice and not too sweet Amber Ale, the bottle is probably quite old, and thus not very fresh.

jonno (2619) - JAPAN - MAY 23, 2009
A solid amber. One of those beers that would be good to introduce your macro loving friend to the world of good beer. Pours a beautiful amber and has a decent nose of thick malts. THe mouthfeel is light to medium and it has a a solid if slightly boring taste. As it warms the caramel becomes apparent (diacetyl?). Smooth and easy to drink, just not that complex
