2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
33cl bottle bb08/2014, "Die Wilden Cambas" sampler. Translucent, watery amber pour with lacklustre collapsing head. Malty aromas of vegemite, nut and old honey syrup. Tastewise not very bright either, presenting a limited range of tired nutty and honey notes on a superficial, all-upfront palate. Very disappointing for a modern interpretation amped to 8,5% and, as with many Cambas tasted so far, not meriting its provocative name, as not all that "wild" or even all that engaged. Finished with this after 3 sips..having me actually long for a textured old school Bock,

25th May 2014
Tasting at the ever gracious ChrisO’s. Stop sniggering at the back and pay attention! What we have here is a hazy amber beer with a tidy pale cream colour head. Palate is airy and light and a little soft. Superfine carbonation. Sweetish malts, touch of cream. Light tangy dried fruits. Light finish. Not too bad.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Thanks to Fergus for this smutty beverage. Best enjoyed during the act of self love he says.... It pours clear ruby-amber with a medium beige head. The nose is toasty, dried fruits, brown bread, fruit cake and caramel. The taste is toasty, malt-driven, wood, orange peel, grapefruit, muffin, booze and peppery spice with a dry finish. Medium body and high carbonation. Pretty sweet and malty. So-so, great name though.....
