Pours a see through amber color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas and tastes of citrus and caramel. Toffee in the tastes as well. Light bitter finish. I could see this as a decent session beer. jcwattsrugger (12524) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - JUL 13, 2007

Had another without dry, tannins, so benefit of the doubt avg. is 3.2 madsberg (11776) - Søborg, DENMARK - FEB 12, 2006
Bottled: Orange farvet. Er let tåget. Har et lyst beige skum, med en høj tæthed. Holder godt. Medium karbonering. Citrus, let frugt and let caramel i aromaen. Smagen er let humlet og blomstret. Har noget sødme og frugtighed. Er lidt bitter i enden. Tør og medium fylde. God balance. Tak til Ungstrup for denne øl fra hans overskudslager. shrubber85 (11618) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - OCT 7, 2007
Bottle. Creamy malt and orange peel aroma with a hint of hops. Medium amber with small head. Slightly sour barley malt flavor with light hops finish. Toasted malt aftertaste. A nice beer but it would really take a 5/5 beer to live up to the legacy of Colonel Chamberlain and his 20th Maine boys. daknole (11402) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - SEP 16, 2009
Hmmm, pretty boring beer but not bad for the style. Copper pour. Aromas of crackers, caramel malt and hops. Flavor is pretty light. Some light caramel malt and hops.

Bottle... Clear amber ale with a large, fluffy, white head. Excellent, tight retention. The soapy, biscuity nose offers notes of pale malts, biscuit and caramel. The flavor is of pale, biscuity malt and a nice, crisp, hop kick. A touch grainy with a mild note of butterscotch. Medium-bodied with a skim-milk mouthfeel and intermediate carbonation. Mid-length, sticky-sweet finish. DocLock (11048) - 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. jercraigs (10886) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 30, 2007
Bottle. Orange-amber body with a small white head. Very muted aroma, light mushroomy notes. Very light bitterness in the flavour, muted fruity character mixed with mild dilute grains. Average to thin palate. Inoffensive, but a bit dull. 5/3/5/3/10 kp (10880) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - MAY 11, 2008

I would like to rerate this beer.
Clear amber, big cream coloured haed with excellent retention, leaving chunky lace down the glass. Interesting aroma, almost perfumey, ginger spice, caramel, and subtle stone fruits. Full-bodied malt-forward palate with a moderately resinous hop finish. I really liked this one as a bit of a different take on a style that often comes across as a dumbed-down cascade-laden IPA.
