nice deep amber, tastes far less complex than the aroma indicates. there is a surprising and not completely pleasant bitterness to the finish

Lager glass. Nice amber/orange color. Tinted off-white head appears to be in it for the long haul. Orange peel on the nose and maybe a little apple pie. Perfect amount of hops for this. Continued citrus peel and some spice, but overall a pretty good beer.

Bottle @ home. Aroma is very citrussy hops, touch of flower, lemon peel.
Flavour is smooth but sharp bitterness, lovely fruity and flowery hops, piney indeed, nice malt note. Awesome beer, would love this as a session beer.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle in Craft Beer Co. Colour is ruby brown, white head. Nose is malty, bread, ale fruity. Taste is distinctive but odd. Red currants, nutty, caramel. Itís a crisp beer with citrous and caramel but a strong red currant and nutty flavour thatís too strong.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A cloudy, reddish beer with a medium and beige head. Aroma is malty and fruitfull, quite sweet, toffee, and some herbs and mustyness. Taste is quite simple, some toffee, biscuity maltyness and dry, wooden hoppyness. Medium bodied, enough of carbonation, nice to drink. Nice aroma, then fruits are unfortunately disappeared. Anyway, quite fresh and easily to enjoyable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
365ml bottle (BierKompass.de)
7 Crisp refreshing, slightly piney hop aroma.
4 Hazy to cloudy deep orange, good tight bready head.
7 So bready, toasted rye bread, just a little bit burnt.
4 Crisp palate, carbonation quite high. Finish nicely toasted, again to the point of burnt bitterness. A touch of soapiness in the hops, thatís about the only drawback.
13 Super easy quaffer, but jam packed full of the kinds of flavours you (or I) want in a beer. I could session this happily, and enjoy and appreciate every drop. 3 darn good and 1 decent beer out of 4 - these guys have really proved their worth.
