yngwie (16882) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 23, 2013
Bottle, 22oz. From a trade with a good Danish friend. A brown one, almost clear, and topped by a beige head. Theres citrusy hops in the aroma, sort of balancing the nutty, caramel-ish maltyness. Nuts, caramel, roasted malts, sweetness and a fine bitterness in the flavor. Its full-bodied and soft on the palate, with a pleasant carbonation. Overall, perhaps a bit on the sweet side, but Im not dissatisfied in any way. 130405

Lagerboy (2135) - British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 30, 2013
Bomber. Opaque orange brown, short lived foamy tan head. Boozy malty hoppy aroma. Potent dark roasted caramel malt taste well balanced with floral citrus pine hops, some spice and heat. Average-soft carbonation, medium-full bodied, medium hopped. Well made but: DNFL (Definitely Not For Lagerboys)

beerbaaron (1998) - Arizona, USA - NOV 16, 2013
Pours a clear ruby reddish orange amber. Medium, very frothy beige head, mostly lasting with good lace. Great hoppy aroma, pine, citrus, grapefruit, along with caramel to balance - sweet. Flavor is much the same with hops at center stage. Medium body. Moderate sweetness and bitterness. Piney finish. Some alcohol warmth. Oily. Hop driven. Pretty nice drinkability, not nearly as big as many beers of this style. Have had this a few times and always enjoyed it.

safhundos (9) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - OCT 29, 2013 does not count
Warming on a cold Wisconsin autumn day. Spicy initially followed by well balanced flavors throughout the mouth. Hop flavor lingers as the alcohol warms the throat for an extended period of time.
