2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Beer looks and smells allright. Orangy, light amber color and a nice big head. The flavor on the other hand is not the one i expected from an amber ale at all. Tastes very sour and weird. Didn’t finish teh bottle.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Gusher! Pours clear enough though, amber with a good sized-white head. Aromas of honey, malt, light sour note, yeast. Taste has all this, but it doesn’t gel well, and finishes quite thin. OK.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330 ml bottle from a Belgian sampler 6-pack. A towering head quickly filled my pint glass as I hastily poured beer from a bottle that overflowed upon opening. Several pours were needed to empty the bottle into my oversized glass.
A - clear light amber with a huge sudsy head with medium retention. Leaves globs of foam on the sides of the glass.
S - sweet & yeasty, with lightly toasted malts. Detectable hops. Hints of butter and bread dough.
T - Sweet; more yeasty and less hoppy than aroma suggests. A light bitterness and a bit of sour in the finish. Has Belgian yeasty complexity, but is less hoppy [for BPA; not for an amber], or more yeasty, than I would like. Relatively poor finish.
M - good, if rather high, carbonation; medium/light, near watery body; crisp, semi-dry feel.
O - about average for style.
