GBZ59 (1193) - BARCELONA (Catalonia), SPAIN - AUG 14, 2011
Botella de 500ml servida en Vaso de Pinta. Saboreada en Jun´11 Brota con color cobrizo claro. Espuma beige amarillenta, copiosa y densa con bastante buena retención y bonito encaje en las paredes. Aroma malteado con matices de madera y chocolate subyacente. Trazos de aroma a pan. Inicio de agradable y dulce amargor con notas de bayas y recuerdos de platano en boca. Oleosa y mantecosa. Sorprendente cuerpo intenso para tan poco ABV y carbonatación media. Lígero picor alcoholico. Los esteres parecen dominar el sabor pero, finalmente, el lúpulo gana la partida con un amargor envolvente.El retrogusto es de sutil chocolate. Muy buena asimilación y sensación muy refrescante.Excelente lupulización combinando amargor y aroma en adecuado equilibrio.500ml bottle served into a Pint glass.Enjoyed on Jun´11.Pours light copper in color.Yellowish beige froth, copious & dense.Fairly well retention & nice lacing left on sides.Malty aroma, hints of wood & chocolate underneath.Slightly bready hues,too.Starts with a gentle & sweet bitterness, notes of berries & mildy banana.Kind oily & viscosity sensation. A surprising full body unexpected in a medium ABV beer.Medium-low carbonation.Light scratchy alcohol hues.Esters look like dominating but finally hops win the match leaving an all-around bitterness. Subtle chocolate aftertaste.Very good drinkability & refreshing sensation.Excelent hoppy profile combining bitterness & aroma in a correct balance.

Weird beer that I had never seen before that I tried. It is a bit off the beaten path flavor-wise. It is a good pale ale though.

Labove (427) - Rome, ITALY - APR 12, 2011
Non ci siamo proprio. L’aroma è buono, di luppolo erbaceo, ma in bocca sparisce e ha una consistenza talmente grezza che sembra carta vetrata.

Mortlach (1293) - Rome, ITALY - APR 7, 2011
07/04/2011 Brasserie 4:20 (tap). Ambrata, abbastanza limpida, schiuma biancastra con venature marroncine. Aroma intenso di luppolo, con lievissime note caramellate appena percettibili. In bocca è abbastanza grezza, poco bilanciata, non molto convincente. Non così amara come ci si aspetterebbe. Corpo medio-basso, carbonatura corretta. Mediocre.

Nickls (1978) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - JAN 28, 2011
Bottle. Very thin, barely there white head; coppery orange color that’s mostly clear. Caramel and light citrus hops in the aroma, slight sweetness. Light sweetness carries through into the taste with some light hoppiness that comes off citrus and a little earthy. Caramel again, but not overpowering. Medium slick MF, with subtle carbonation. Not bad.

Amarga, en botella una mica massa gran per un sol. Però més que decent i millor que una estrella / san miguel o similars

oh6gdx (22638) - Vasa, FINLAND - NOV 1, 2009
Bottled (from Cracked Kettle). Deep ambery brown colour, mediumsized beigeish foamy head. Aroma is caramel malts, some slight metallicness as well as sour freshly cut woodennotes. Flavour is rather grassy and and bit sour fruity. Also has some spices, nuts and earthyness in it. Probably some kind of infection is the root for the sourness in this one. Yet it was quite drinkable.

thewolf (11492) - Kolding, DENMARK - SEP 1, 2009
Bottle @ El Flabiol, Barcelona.
Pours clear, deep, metallic brown with a good, staying, small, creamy, yellowish head. Aroma has pepper, caramel, raisins and light fruity hops. Medium carbonation, fine dry mouthfeel. Flavour is first dominated by grassy bitterness, then some caramel and hazel mixed with liqourice. A light touch of chocolate and a long, lingering bitterness. Fine.
