Solid entry in the "widespread for a small brewery" niche. Unbeatable against the commercial giants but too pricey when side by side with the micros.

This beer feels good from the moment it is poured to the last drop. It is not an exceptional beer but you can see it was finely crafted. The Amber color with nice almost creamy head (which looked amazingly dense!) was very inviting. The first mouthful was a tad disapointing compared to the LIberty Ale but after a while I’ve discovered a very different product. Bitterness and dryness were excellent and well balanced with hops.

Bottle. Nice, hoppy aroma. Nice golden color. Somewhat bitter taste, more than usual. Some slight fruitiness, but more bitter. Little carbonation through the whole bottle. Good tasting beer, but somewhat watery mouthfeel due to the low carbonation.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle Pours a deep clear amber with a modest offwhite head. Enough of a ring is maintained to keep nice thin lacing on each sip. Aromas are of pale pitted fruit, apricots etc. Not much hops in the aroma. Flavor is more hoppy but balanced by decent malt flavors. After taste is dry bitter lingering taste. Don’t know what is so special about this one.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - 650ml. Superb amber body topped with a decent and lasting off-white foamy head. Good malty aroma with pleasant fruity and flowery notes. Taste is pretty well balanced. Hoppy and malty flavors with subtle ginger hints. Decent bitter aftertaste. Without being an exceptional product, that one has all the qualities to please a real beer lover.

I must admit I was a little buzzed when i tasted this beer, so I had to relie on my short notes. APP: hazy, golden, large foam. ARO: fresh, hops. FLA: weak, hops, malt, bitter. MOU: fresh. OVE: I sure wish i could get drunk with a bow of these! (this properly means, that it is not that strong, but a beer you enjoy several of in a row) ... average beer!
