Ungstrup (36427) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 4, 2010
Draft. A light amber beer with a thin white head. The aroma has light notes of caramel. The flavor is sweet with a solid malt base, that makes it almost chewy and notes of caramel as well as a touch of alcohol.

brokensail (16347) - Dublin, California, USA - MAY 8, 2010
A: The pour is amber/copper in color with a thin ring of white foam. S: The nose is somewhat on the light side with some sweet caramel and bready malts. There’s also a nice toast bready aroma to it. T: The beer is caramelly and sweet with that usual bready malt flavor. Some light baking spices, like cinnamon, as well. Unfortunately, there’s a very noticeable alcohol presence. M: The body is on the full side with a moderate level of carbonation and a bit of warmth. D: I liked some of the flavors and aromas in the beer, but it was unfortunately, the alcohol presence ruined the experience for me.

bhensonb (14871) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 24, 2010
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2014 Tap at Stone Bistro. Pours dark copper with a creamy off-white head. Aroma is mildly funky/carbolic - but so mild it might be wishful smelling. Med. body - creamy carb. Flavor is definitely more malty than anything else. There’s a little yeast; there’s a little barnyard. But it’s primarily bready/malty. Still it washed down the duck taco and habanero salsa something proper. 8/30/2014 at the brewpub. Not gonna change the first rating.

Pour on tap at the brewery, dark yellow-orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of orange, grapefruit, orange jam into a bit of bread, biscuit, some earth into a bit of red fruit, some vanilla. Taste was a mix of vanilla, orange jam, caramel, hints of toffee and sweet sugars, slight red fruit.

joeneugs (6314) - Livermore, California, USA - APR 13, 2011
On tap at the brewery. Pours orangy/gold with a small off white head. The aroma is full with caramel and sweet fruity hard candy. The flavor is very sweet with caramel and some fruit. The body is full and slightly oily. Nice maltyness in the finish. I’m not a fan of the style, but this was one of the better ones I’ve tried. Nice effort.
