3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured into a summer glass, with a dense creamy head. Gleaming chilly copper in the glass. Aroma is subtly sweet cereal. Taste is sweet, simple with roasted notes and finishes with a hint of hops.
A microbrewery product that makes a great introduction to those familiar with macros, but want to "dip their toe" in the world of craft beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a nice looking copper with fluffy off-white head. Nose is mostly bread, caramel, a bit of toasted grain. Taste follows but with a refreshing spicy, dry pine finish. Despite the snow on the bottle this is quite drinkable in August.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. This one probably hasn’t benefited from the trip to Australia, but it’s still nice enough. One of the best of the style I’ve tried (from memory).

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a nice golden colour with decent head that slowly dissipates. Aroma is malty, with grassy notes and a slight hint of hops in the background. Taste is slightly wet but with a great balance of hops and bitterness with malts and sweetness. Generally quite a dry aftertaste with a hoppy punch at the very end. A very enjoyable altbier!

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Odeurs métallique et céréales. Se retrouvent aussi, désagréablement, bouche. La bouteille a explosé au départ, c’est peut-être une vieille batch...

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
355ml bottle, pours dark brown, amber, with some haze and a lasting white head. Aroma is malty, rich caramel and dank biscuit textures, palate is rich with dried fruit and citrus. More a malty ale, which I enjoy. The maltiness is wel balanced with some hop bitterness. Nice

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light brown, light grey head. Very biscuity, cereal, butterscotch (in a good way), earthy hops, very nice! For the style great looks and excellent mouth feel. Quite dry and bitter, toasty yet never thick. Actually really drinkable! (Bottle from Saveur Bière)
