3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
25cl bottle @Cimmeria, Oviedo. Malty, yeasty, flowers, some caramel aromas. Pours hazy dark gold with frothy white head, persistent, poor lacing. Medium body, average carbonation, some crispy texture. Taste is caramel, toffee, flowers, some grainy. Some honey flavours and even aromas. Alcohol not too integrated, a bit harsh flavours. Dry and carbonic aftertaste.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Small bottle. Bright golden body, medium head. Thin malty aroma. Sweet and a bit papery malty taste. Finish is a bit papery too but it must be partly the alcohol. Resembling a boring high alc lager.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
330ml bottle (Drink Shop, Helsinki)
Sweet honey grains in the aroma. Definitely honeymonster approved. Taste is crappy messy malts, paper. Marginally better than the ambree, but that’s all the positivity I can inject into the review.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark gold with a thick, disappearing, frothy, lacy, lasting white head. Smells flowers, yeast, with toasted malt and light hops - grass and fruit. Medium oily body with soft carbonation. Tastes of yeast and wheat with sweet peaches in the middle and a bitter hoppy finish. I had it with a Berger at Big Fernand in Paris. Amazing Berger and nice beer with it.
