RB Odense Early Summer Fun. Copper with a small white head. Rich malty aroma with biscuit and bread, dried fruit and tropical sweet fruit. Malty and fruity flavour with a yeasty hint, herbal hops and a quite bitter finish. A bit thin for what the aroma is promising bierkoning (13217) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUL 11, 2005
Bottle, best until 13.02.05. Dark amber color, small head. Vinous aroma with biscuit. Hoppy, very malty flavor. This beer has a good hop character, but that is cahllanged by the malt, the wine-like character and the biscuit and butterscotch flavors. World class beer!. Thanks Dortmunder, for providing me with this gem.

Tap. Pours clear dark amber with a medium, creamy off-white head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is spicy, herbal and pine hops with biscuit and straw malt and a clean lager character. Flavor is heavy hops and bitterness, supporting malt and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation. bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - AUG 29, 2004

I've been looking for a replacement for the awesome Blimp City Akron/Macon Ale since they went out of business, and I think I have found it! The beer is a dark brown/amber with an ultra thin off-white head. Very little lacing. The aroma is nice and full, with caramel, malt and sweet fruit. Medium-bodied and very drinkable with a pleasing blend of flavors such as malt, raisin, caramel and hops. The finish is the only place it falls off a little. There is a slight metallic tinge to the fruity finish that was out of character with the beer. A slightly bigger hops finish would make it nearly perfect. As it stands though, this is one of the better Alts I have had. crossovert (12631) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 9, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2014 Had it on tap, it had a slight funkiness (probably he line) but i was soo delicious, huge herbal noble hop notes and a medium bitterness. Soo tasty. Wanna go to the source now.
Bottle fresh is hoppy, lots of woodiness, herbs, spices, nuttiness, very nice. Rune (12587) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 28, 2015
330ml bottle bought at Vinmonopolet Tromsdalen. Slim neck and a swing-top that gave a good shot when opened. Pours a cloudy caramel brown body topped by a rocky, beige head with fine retention and spotty lacing to the glassware. Just plain malt-driven aroma, hints of nuts and bread, mid-sweet. Well blended flavour character of earthy malts, nuts, herbal hops, and lightly hints of jam-like fruits. Malt bitterness to a prolonged ending. Fine bodied. Lovely. Had not expected this, it really came as a very pleasant surprise (Tromsø 27.03.2015). thewolf (12534) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 22, 2010
Bottle, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph.
Pours caramelly amber with a slight haze. Fine, staying, frothy, off-white head. Aroma is malty, sweet, some caramel. Good citric and flowery hoppiness as well. A hint of toffee. Medium carbonation, good and dry mouthfeel. Flavour is nicely balanced, lots of sweet maltiness, toasted, caramel, grassy. Long, lingering aftertaste with good toasted caramel and a good deal of bitterness. Really nice and very drinkable.
