3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a clear amber body under a small fizzy beige head. The nose is slightly sweet and toasty malt with a light brown sugar note and a bit of leafy hops. The flavor is much the same, a little sweet and toasty maltiness with just a hint of huskiness. Just a light bitterness on the finish. Light bodied with a bit if cling on the finish and minimal soft carbonation. Ok beer I suppose, but probably something that might be better on cask.

Pours a cloudy copper with a small dull white head that settles to a thin ring and has decent legs but leaves little to no lace. Aroma is bready, fruity esters, toffee, and rasins. Flavour is grassy, watery, mildly bitter, faint caramel, and bread crusts.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bouteille de 500 ml. Dégustée le 24 novembre 2013 (pint). Bière rousse limpide. Mousse peu, col mince blanc éphémère. Très très peu effervescente, bulles fines. Odeur de champagnette. Saveur assez surette au départ, de bois, puis assez âcre vers la fin de la bouteille. Le tout est fade, manque de punch, pas d’effervescence notable.
