Bottle from Bacchinalia, Cambridge. Impenetrably cloudy yellow-orange. Banana, lemon, dough and caramel in the bouquet. Taste is sweet, tropical fruits combine with caramely richness with just a hint of bitter hop in the end. Thick, chewy palette and just the right amount of carbonation. This is gorgeous.

MoritzF (8644) - Bochum, GERMANY - SEP 30, 2014
(bottle) Cloudy, orange-golden colour with a medium-sized and slightly off-white foamy head. Moderately yeasty, bready malty aroma with hints of biscuits, caramel and slightly fruity accents. Sweet flavour, medium bodied with a soft carbonation. Mildly yeasty, juicy malty start with notes of peaches, citrus and traces of caramel; sweet, even a bit syrupy, thus slightly sticky malty finish with delicately fruity notes, but also a well-masked alcoholic strength. Quite one-dimensional unfiltered pale Bock. 14.IX.14

yngwie (14628) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 27, 2014
Bottle. An unclear, orange-golden beer with a small, dense, off-white head. The aroma is a bit too much on the sweet grainy side, with a pleasant fruityness and some grass and piney, peppery hops. Its full-bodied and soft on the palate, with a touch of alcohol warmth. A nice bitterness in the flavor, with grassy, resiny and peppery hops, and a good dash of too sweetish malts in the back. Lasting bitter and lightly fruity finish. Starts a bit dull this one, but its a nice one anyway. 140927
