3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thankfully this was bought for me as it is against my beliefs to sink $$ into certain people’s ventures. That said - DDC never disappoints. It’s 1045pm. Taking a break from riding in pitch black along the river. Good thing I brought beer and a chalice! Using my iPhone for a light source I think this is an amber beer with a decent white head. Being this is my third beer and I’m still an hour from home who knows if my brain can process.... Nothing beats reviewing a beer in total darkness at about +6C surrounded by hungry coyotes. Snort: grains and cereal, biscuity malts, grass, light fruits of no something something, floral stuff. Teeth cage organ: not much but reading the label I don’t expect craziness. Grains, biscuit, faint pepper and I’m running out of battery. Ok bitterness mostly fits in. Very drinkable and I’m glad I hit up this style tonight. That is after the IPA and sour. All good. Coyotes are gaining ground. Time to split.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden orange pour with moderate head. Sharp noble hop aroma with pepper and herbs. A touch of hefeweis quality to it somehow. Taste is bitter from start to finish, with a pilsner malt base. Notably bitter finish. Trust ddc to bring this much flavour to a style that can get written off.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Super crisp and easy to drink little lager. Not too much going on overall, but a light grainy and light hop brew. Well balanced with a light golden pour and a bit of bitterness on the finish, overall good session brew.

Bottle (or 4). Dark amber. Light but lasting head and faint lace. Smalls lightly sweet and of faint field grass. Has a nice aggressive hop bite and a pleasant underlying sweetness. Smooth with a nice biscuit taste along with the hops.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
341ml bottle pours a golden color with a finger of white head that settles to leave some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is cereal grains with some floral notes and grass. Taste is a grainy malt sweetness with a sharp grassy hop bitterness. Light to medium body with some good carbonation. A full flavored lager that is recommended for a good tasting experience.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Dieu du Ciel, pours a crystal clear copper with a small beige head. Aroma of grassy hops and biscuity malts - not a whole lot on the nose. Flavour of dry grassy hops and straw-like biscuity malts to back, though the hops shine more. Unobtrusive on the palate, but with a pleasantly hoppy bite on the finish. Solid pils.
