Bottle 30cl. Brown, ruby red with an off white head. Almost no Co2. Aroma reminds me of pilsner, nothing special. The taste is sweet with a slight bitter undertone. Tastes a bit chemical to me.

Cleaning the fridge tasting. Bottle, pours dark ruby with a beige head.
Aroma: slightly burnt caramel, dough, cinnamon, herbs. Taste: caramel, chestnut, herbs, leaves, vanilla. Sweet, moderate light bitterness getting stronger in the finish, oily texture, light-medium body. Nutty, spicy and somewhat boozy finish. Quite nice.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0,3 l bottle from 2014. Clear, dark amber with a thin, slowly diminishing, tan head. Sweetish-malty aroma of honey, cane sugar, raisins and maple syrup. Sweetish-malty taste of maple syrup and cane sugar with hints of raisins and honey. Medium long, just slightly bitter and minimally alcoholic finish. Medium body, slightly oily mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Very monotonous and quite watery considering the 7.5% abv. Not bad, just a bit boring and lacking some intensity. Could as well have a more sophisticated flavour profile.
