3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle courtesy of and shared with ogivlado who got it in a trade with Allen (thanks!)
Poured a lovely dark apricot-orange body with a nice white head. Light fruity agrumey hoppy nose, soft and a remarkably pleasant surprise. The taste, however, fails to follow on the aroma’s promise. It does try, remaining pefumey and somewhat hoppy, but it adds some beety notes, and while pleasant, it isn’t as thrilling as it should’ve been. It tastes like the pils should’ve tasted I guess (at least that’s what I wrote not knowing it was an ale).

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle, vielen Dank an Allen! Cloudy deep golden colour with a small white head. Fruity nose. Malty, hints of honey and caramel, slightly fruity (mango) with a rather shy touch of bitter hops in the finish. Not as hoppy as the usual Alt, a nice interpretation of the style.

Bottled, thanks Bov! Hazy amber, minimal head. Floral nose with dough and grass. Dryish with light body and fairly clean mouthfeel. Bread and grass, notes of strawberry and hay. Medium bitterness. A relaxed mildly flavourful beer.

from baesibraeu.ch - cloudy copper colour with a little persistent foam; some malty and earthy tones with notes of diacetyl; initial sweetness with a sharp and astringent tartness, medium-bodied; vegetal aftertaste with more notes of diacetyl - not terrible
