JaKeAFC (545) - ITALY - AUG 31, 2013
75 cl bottle, 7%, 6.5€. Amber color, partially hazed, big creamy offwhite head. Nose of white wine, prosecco, lemon. First impression is pure BROWN SUGAR, and a damn lot of it. Aroma: lots of fruity notes, peach, pear, white grapes, lots of syrup. Again a massive amount of cane sugar. Reminds of canned syrup yellow fruits
Taste is, neverteless, sweet. Ultra sweet. The finish has some citric astringency, sourish, no hops, faint bitterness. Nice mouthfeel tho, fluffy, expansive, foamy, creamy and smooth, soft carbonation. Medium bodied, sticky finish. Heavy to drink in quantity. Peculiar indeed, but not my style.

Lowenbrau (1938) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - AUG 22, 2013
330ml bottle. Too sweet, some honey, flowers, sweetness overwhelming. Average belgian ale apart from this. Peculiar.

The sweetness in the aroma is quite pleasant but it’s an overwhelmingly sweet tasting beer. The floral, herbal notes in the flavour only make it worse.

La bottiglia si presenta decisamente bene, con la sua elegante velina che la ricopre con un certo stile e le da un certo tono di lusso. Una volta tolta la velina pero’ ci si ritrova una bottiglia assolutamente anonima, senza alcuna scritta ne’ logo... va beh, poco male... da qualche parte i costi li devono pur limare! una volta aperta bisogna fare in fretta a portarla nel bicchiere se non si vuol vedere la schiuma che si arrampica su per il collo tuffarsi tutta sul tappeto. Il liquido del bicchiere e’ impressionante per quanto somiglia alla bottiglia: esattamente lo stesso bruno/arancione. Un bel cappello di schiuma densa e abbondante accompagna la birra per diversi minuti. Al naso e’ solida e corposa. Emerge un alcool piuttosto marcato accompagnato da note di agrumi e lieviti. In bocca invece non arriva la botta alcolica che ci si sarebbe aspettati e il sapore e’ anzi lieve e vellutato. Si percepiscono note di grano e in generale un sapore erbaceo e floreale accompagnato da un corpo piuttosto deciso. Sulla distanza rimane un filino stucchevole, complice il carattere piuttosto dolce del prodotto. Nel complesso niente male.

jmgreenuk (4337) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 10, 2013
Bottle at Cafe De La Gare, Den Haag. Poured a cloudy reddish brown with a thin off white head. The aroma is hugely malty with lots of toffee and caramel. The flavour is rich, malty, fruity, sweet and a touch alcoholic bitter. Nice to taste, but could become a little bland.

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2013 33cl bottle at the gare courtesy of Kermis. Thin white head. Clear amber pour. Quite sweet. Nice though .
