3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle 500 ml, into a Guinness pint glass. ABV 4.5%. New beer style ticked. New country.
Pours a bright red amber colour on the body, clear and transparent, with a handful of bubbles rising to the surface laily. Two finngers of thick and creamy head, off-white in colour, with good retention and light lacing left on the glass.
Aroma of caramel, grass, light cookies, light hops.
Taste begins sweet with lots of caramel, malts, cookie. Little bit of iron on the aftertaste, mildly bittersweet.
Full body, smooth and creamy. Good soft carbonation. Nice dryness on the palate.
Overall quite nice beer. I still don’t get the Old Ale style, seeing this is my first one on it, but it sure tastes good.
