2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear dark yellow with small white foam ring. Aroma is seriously malty. Taste is malty and quite some carbon gas. Aftertaste is short. Think this beer might taste better when joined with some spicy Indonesion food. (Velp 201307)

Bottle. Light golden, small to average and fully diminish head. Moderate malty - lightly grainy and sweetish aroma, some caramel and light bread. Body is medium, malty and sweetish aroma, caramel and light bread, light fruitiness - notes of honey. Finish is short to average, malty and sweetish, some caramel and light bread, faint hoppyness and light alcohol. Caramel sweetish "helles". Way too sweet for me. Reminds me of those East-European booze-lagers.

Aroma of malts, hay, straw. Flavour is malty sweetness, a bit too sweet for my taste. Drinkable but boring.

Clear light orangey golden body with a fairly lasting white head. Sweet aroma, peaches and malt. Mainly the malt characters seem to show first in the taste, body is fairly well rounded, hint of hops on the finish, couldn’t tell the alcohol was as high as it was. Enjoyable!

Form the bottle into a tall boy glass. Bright, sparkling, honey gold with tight, fine carbonation sustaining a tight, well formed, dense head of cream that laced well. Appearance, lovely! Slightly leftfield ’eggy’ nose lasted a few minutes before subsiding to reveal some sweet candi and fresh toasted grains. Simple. It is grainy, sweet and spicy in the mouth filling all corners but lacking in the middle.Soft on the tongue with a faintly fruity, bitter and spicy hop swallow that is void of the ABV. Residually sweet, it holds some mango and peach juices in the mouth long between swallows. Nothing disagreeable here, all neat and tidy, smooth and quenching. Not too bad a drop. Just needs more essence in the core!!! (30cL, BBE 12/06, Int’l Beer Shop, W. Leederville)
