DenverLogan (814) - MileHi, Colorado, USA - MAY 14, 2006
Strong malt aroma. Apricot-amber color. Off white head. Significant carbonation, strong flavors but not a great balance, though tasty. Easily bigger than most Spanish brews in body and flavor. I imagine a strong Dos Equis, some wet cardboard, hay-grass, honey dew melon rind. Crisp and filling. This is from the Brasserie Artisanale des Alberes in Barcelona, but is actually "Brassee Et Embouteillee" - contract brewed in France. Available in 33 ml bottles and unique pop-top bottles. A respectable effort at craft brewing.

Smallish white head. Pale coppery body. Fruity resiny aroma dominated by plasticy medical notes. Dryish herbal yeast taste with floral honey notes. Mid-to-thin body. Dryish mealy floral herbal aftertaste. Nice and drinkable. (0.33l bottle shared by gr0ve.)

Kestral (506) - Årnes, NORWAY - JUL 15, 2011
Bottle. A thin layer of bubbles lay shortly on top of a deep golden, leaning to amber, body. Aromas are mostly caramel and roasted malts, with a slight metallic skunk at first. This fades after a while though. Evident alcohol. Very straightforward. Rather sweet, this one, with a metallic finish. Light bodied, fizzy carbonation. Not their best.

thewolf (11206) - Kolding, DENMARK - SEP 2, 2009
Bottle, bought @ Cellar Vin, Barcelona.
Pours hazy pale orange with a small, creamy, white head. Aroma is sweet and grainy, maize, rather sweet. Soft, lightly high carbonation, fine mouthfeel. Flavour is very sweet, grainy, some caramel and a hint of liqourice. Far too sweet as the others, but this nears balance.

Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a yellowish head. The aroma has notes of malt, grapes, and straw. The flavor is sweet with notes of grapes, malt, and caramel, leading to a dry finish.
