Amber color. Some malt aroma. Malt and caramel flavor, with a light but nice hoppy touch, and a reasonable ending bitterness.

Golden to amber color. Some fudge aroma, light caramel and paper. The flavor is lacking of malt and hop, but the body is quite strong and the bitterness high.

omhper (25154) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 9, 2005
Bottled. Brownish amber, brief head. Light citrusy nose with a hint of metal. Dry with clean, hard, primitive malt character. Some toffee and oranges. Grassy, salty finish with medium bitterness. Nice flavourwise, but the mouthfeel is fizzy and harsh.

larsniclas (7077) - Billdal, SWEDEN - MAR 4, 2005
Bottled. Amber. Toffee and butter-aroma. A bit pungent. Full and malty flavour with citric hops. Also some toffee and chocolate(?).

rickgordon (3878) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 27, 2005
Bottled. Dark copper colour. Aroma has notes of honey pastilles and butter. Flavour is light citric from hops and there is honey as well. Nice balanced bitterness. Very smooth and balanced.

ante (3373) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 26, 2005
Amber, creamy white head. Leafy and buttery citus aroma. Herbs, caramel, butter and toffee in flavour. Butterscotch in the finish with hints of citric fruit.

DocLock (10702) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 15, 2005
Thanks to matta for this. Pours deep copper with medium white head. Aroma of malt, caramel, slight hops. Tastes malty, with a fruity, caramel element and some finishing hops. Very smooth palate, and some honey at culmination.

Aubrey (3516) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - FEB 4, 2005
Amber-orange hue. Light- to medium-bodied. Little nip of noticeable alcohol. Grainy malts with very little sweetness. Notes of toasted bread and burnt caramel. Spicy, tea-like hops, with elements of bitter flowers. Other notes of metal, pear, lemon grass and light tobacco. Piques the curiosity.

jimhilt (2610) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 10, 2004
Pours a cream, two-fingered head, fades quickly and leaves some lace. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied. Clear amber color. Citrusy nose. Starts with a mix of hops and malt, faint sweetness in the background and finishes without an overpowering amount of hops like some pales can be. 83¢ for a 12oz bottle from Cumberland Convenience Greenland, NH.
