2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Just makes 2 finger bubbly white head. Ambery bronze color with mideum carbination. Smell is kinda sweet with hop bitterness,caramel & malt. Taste has some maltyness with some caramel and a little hop bitterness that ends up having a bit of a sour aftertase. A little water can sometimes be noticed also. Sits a little heavy in belly. Not fantastic 2 me but it’s nice & I enjoy it just don’t love it or anything. A little more then average or something cheers.

500ml bottle. A clear copper body, smallish beige head, decent retention. Aroma of caramel, roasted nuts, malt, a floral-herbal hop mix, rye bread. Taste of caramel sweetness upfront, followed by an increasingly herbal bitter hops, toasted rye bread, nuts. Medium body, soft carbonation, a decent bitter finish.

500mL bottle. Pours a beautiful copper color. Small head that dissipates quickly. Not much aroma. Pleasantly bitter, nice long finish. Really excellent.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours slightly hazy light brown with a butterscotch head that lingers. The aroma is of crystal malt, floral hops. The taste is sweet and clean up front, nice roasted malt. This fades to a subtle, floral hop bitterness. Well balanced and nicely focused.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, LCBO. As advertised nice dark bronze colour, bubbly white head, looks nice. Pleasant malty aroma with hunts of nut and wood. Mouthfeel is soft with a lovely roast and caramel taste, and a fantastic lingering bitterness. A really nice ale that captures some of the characteristics of cask ale, as much as a bottle can anyway. A very nice surprise.

Pleasant surprise. Lovely amber colour, light carbonation. I got toasted cereal flavored maltiness, with a grassy bitter finish. Excellent session beer if I had the time!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle by 08.13. Light spicy-fruit nose with orange peel and berry coming forward. Gorgeous chestnut pour with a rocky beige head. Taste is bitter with a good base of toffee, caramel, and earth; and somewhat dry, with slicing zests of citrus and fruit but neither up to the task of the aforementioned malt flavors. Earthy hops. Light-medium body, great balance.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Muddy bronze pour with a small sudsy sticky white head. Nose shows so some toasted malt and honey upfront, faint herbal hop bitterness is there if you stick your schnoz in far enough. Flavor is nicely balanced between hearty malts and a crisp zesty bitterness. Hints of metal in the flavor and to a lesser degree in the nose, but drinkable and nice enough.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Szép borostyán szín, illékony habbal. Illata édeskés malátás, fügés. Kellemes gyógynövényes keserűsége és finom fémes beütése van. Laza iszogatós ser. Le lehet gurítani kettőt - hármat egymás után.
Egyre jobban szeretem a bittereket.
