Bottle: Deep golden to copper coloured, mid-sized, quite stable, lacing head, shy sweet-malty/ toasted nose with a tinge of alcohol; moderate sweetish-bitter flavour; traces of alcohol and toasted malt in the light sweet-bitter finish. Boring, not well balanced brew.....

Bottle, 7.0%. Clear brown colour. Small head. The flavour is quite malty, with pepper to balance. A little yeast flavour too. The flavour might not be exceptional, but it is very well-balanced.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(bottle) Clear, deep golden to amber colour with a thick and slowly lacing foamy white head. Sweet and slightly perfumed malty nose, also some dusty notes with a slightly papery honey-fruity character. Sweet flavour, medium bodied with a calm carbonation. Malty, slightly fruity (pears) taste with a medium-dry, sweet and minimal-bitter finish. Again this one has the slightly perfumed house character I do not like.
