77ships (3313) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 20, 2013
15 cl. draft @ Brassigaume 2013. Hazy dark amber with a white head. Nose is sweet caramel, toffee, hoppy, sweet malts, toffee, jammy. Taste is sweet malts, caramel, toffee, jam, syrupy coupled with some slightly floral & fruity hops. Syrupy, thick. Not bad, liked it more than the score on RB would suggest prior.

2012-11-16, cask at Pazzeria, Milan, 6-4-7-4-15=36
Cloudy amber color, generous head. The aroma is a bit yeasty. Good and soft malt flavor, soft body, with correct bitterness, Some yeast, light orange peel.
Very good cask ale, truly British.

2012-08-20, bottle courtesy of Jesper; batch L12018 11/12, 5-4-6-3-12=30
Cloudy amber color; generous head. The aroma is quite yeasty. Sweetish malt flavor, with low bitterness, and too much yeast.
It should be filtered better.

Ben fatta e molto gradevole. Rotonda e beverina. Un po’ di lievito in eccesso tra note maltatar e biscottate

sebletitje (6326) - Enghien, BELGIUM - OCT 21, 2013
Draft @ Brassigaume ’13. Orangée, col crémeux beige. Arôme est houblonné, citronné, malté et caramel, fruité moyen, fleuri léger. Palais est légèrement houblonné, malt moyen sur une note épicée. Malt garde ce côté farineux, pain le tout relevé par un malt pâle et caramel. Effervescence moyenne sur des pointes de citronné. Le tout garde ce caractère bien belge qui fait la signature de Forte. Houblons restent dans un style euro - noble. Se termine sur une note levure accompagnée de ce houblonné citronné.

MatteoD. (124) - ITALY - MAR 29, 2014
Comprata in birrificio, bottiglia da 750cc. Bellissimo cappello di schiuma pannosa e mediamente fine, abbastanza persistente, colore ambrato molto opalescente, aroma di biscotti freschi e di scorza di pompelmo, al palato corpo leggero e buona carbonazione, si avvertono inizialmente note maltate, toffee, ancora biscotti come da aroma e poi prevalgono le note amaricanti con in evidenza scorza di pompelmo e comunque note agrumate. Direi che si fa bere volentieri ma che più di una bitter a me pare abbia le caratteristiche di un Apa e di quelle più luppolate. Non male comunque.

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 20, 2012
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Pours a hazy amber with a huge and frothy beige head with good retention. Nose has a little caramel and nuts. Medium body, soft mouthfeel, nuts and caramel with a subtle whiff of smoke. Dry and lightly bitter finish even with no real hop character. Pretty close to a British ESB. 200812
