3fourths (9367) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 18, 2015
UPDATED: APR 19, 2015 Draft. Clear amber with a short white head. Simple malt and ester profile is red apples and caramelized sugar, while spicy phenols suggest cinnamon and nutmeg and metal flakes, while hops come across slightly vegetal and there’s a strange pumpkin flesh character present (and this is unspiced), but altogether it’s still enjoyable. Medium bodied, sweet and lightly bitter, though a little coarse and grainy and minerallic.

Bottle. 5.8%. Best before 02.11.19. 10 cl. sample. Pours a clear golden/amber, with an off-white head. Sweetish, malty and fruity aroma. Light dusty and cardboard notes. Hint of molasses as it warms. Flavour is fruity, malty and slightly dusty. Bitter finish, dry-ish. Fruit note bordering grainy. Light alcohol. Lingering grassy note. 13.01.18.

Copenhagen 7/9 2017. 33 cl bottle from Den Gamle Købmand. Very stony label to illustrate that this ale is using lavastone from the Faroe Island for caramelization. Pours hazy amber with yellowish head. Settles as thin layer of patchy foam. Lacing on the side of the glass. Aroma is sweet caramel, brown sugar and a light whiff of butter. Light carbonation and slightly thick palate. Flavor is strongly sweet followed by medium sourish bitterness. A bit too sweet for my taste buds - but solid Amber Ale.

Sweet smelling and amber brown. Quite fizzy with a balanced if not massively strong taste, although malt comes first followed by something hoppy/vegetably.

Clear, brownish amber. Thick offwhite froth. Malty, slightly caramely aroma. Caramely flavour with fruity, bitter hops. Finishes harsh and metallic.

Let humlet, lidt mild, og lidt tør i det. En fin nydeøl til en sommeraften.

Manslow (1965) - Warsaw, POLAND - AUG 29, 2016
Ciemno bursztynowe, piana średnia, karmel trochę alkoholu wyczułem, słód polony, lekka wędzonka. Do wypicia ale żadna rewelka. Pite na Wyspach Owczych.

Red brown beer, medium head. Aroma is fruity, malt. Taste is the same, caramel, bitter and sweet., Nice one

gunnar (9922) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUL 25, 2016
Bottle at Hotel Færoyar, Thorshavn. Pours clear red/amber with a big creamy white head. Dark malty aroma. Taste is fresh, some caramel with a long bitter grassy/herbal finish.

TorbenJensen (1590) - Valby, DENMARK - SEP 20, 2015
Beautiful foamy beer with good aroma of malt, caramel, fresh grains and a little hay. Lovely malty flavor with caramel notes and semi-dry end with good hops. It is a beer that I really like. It bears the stamp of quality and good craft.

Copper pour with thin beige head. Smells like sweet caramel goodness. Unfortunately tastes like watery caramel goodness with a bit of wet cardboard.
