J’étais très curieux de gouter cette bière... Mais, j’aurais du m’en douter, j’ai été déçu! Il y a certains arômes et saveurs intéressants, mais elle est trop sucrée, ça gache l’expérience. On a aussi l’impression de notes "artificielles"... Je ne suis pas du tout convaincu.

Can shared. Hazy gold pour thin white head. Aroma is fruity, light tropical notes, soft bready malt aromas. Flavor is a bit dull, soft grainy flavors light grassiness sweet. Palate is light bodied, almost watery with light carbonation. Decent for who makes it.

Bamsen78 (4606) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 13, 2015
Bottle. Pours nearly clear amber with airy off-white head. Clear aroma of hops, fruit and yeast, wuth mild citric touches. Citric flavour with bitter notes of metal and hops and fruity and malty touches. Estery and acidic aftertaste. Drinkable but a poor example of the style.

Pours clear deep golden with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, orange and floral. Taste is medium sweet and light to medium bitter with a long caramel, orange and floral finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

A clear, dark golden beer with a small, off-white head. The aroma is lightly malty and bready, with a touch of grass and metal. Some fruity, piney hops and some canned tropical fruits. It’s full to medium bodied, semi-sweet and with a nice carbonation level. Some bitterness going on, but I’d like more to deal with the malts. Grass, pine cones and tropical fruits too. Medium length finish. Lacks on bitterness this one, else it’s a decent one. I’d prefer it less malty though. 150615

Smooth very smooth, like a English bitter that has a mild extra bite to it. Nice deep golden color and a creamy head. Noticeable bitter but not overwhelming ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Backlog. Shared can at Travlr’s DC Pre-Thanksgiving tasting. Lite copper with small white head. Sweet malt with barest hint of floral hops. Not a bad beer, I suppose, but really misses the mark for a pale ale.
