Bottle, Dec 9th Beer Advent Calendar. Iím rating this one before the Dec 8th beer only because I have it in my hot little hand as I type. I will begin by saying this is the first truly awful beer of the batch. I will not be finishing it. Hazy orange-gold, robust white head that actually does retain as a thin layer for a long time. It is still there, and I poured this nearly three quarters of an hour ago. Aroma is sweet cereal, corn syrup, and faint soap. Flavour is very sweet cereal up front, with a metallic edge in the finish. The mid-palate is empty, like a cheap euro-lager or malt liquor. Presario is right-- there is an off-putting chemical taint to this, like you get in cheap fruit cocktail that is meant to seem "fresh" after sitting in a can on the shelf for 2 years. I donít know how this beer gets its spice/herb/vegetable style designation (there are no english words on the label anywhere), but whatever was added to this beer failed utterly to make a drinkable beverage. Drainpour.

Dec 9 CBAC. Itís only Christmas once a year so have an early beer today. Amber with a light head. Rough aroma, seems to have a lot of off notes, grain, alcohol and chemical. I beleive Honig is Honey. Knowing that I can place the honey taste and sweetness in the beer. The honey is needed cause the underlying beer is very rough and hard to drink. Seems to be a chemical off flavour that ruins the beer.

330ml bottle pours a slightly hazy golden color with a small white head that leaves only a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is predominantly cereal grains with a hint of citrus. Taste is a bold grainy malty sweetness with a grassy hop bitterness. Light to medium body with decent carbonation. Not good and not recommended.

330ml brown bottle. Pours out golden, hazy. Head is bright white, a bit creamy, nice rings of sticky lacing. Nose is sweet with honey and grain. Taste has grains, honey, a little sponge candy, light lemony note in the background. Finishes a bit drier, grainy with a trace of herbal hops. Medium body, decent lively carbonation. Pretty average.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured out a lovely hazy light orangy gold with a soft white sticky head. Interesting aroma - mead like honey, feet, flour, light medicinal quality. The flavour is also interesting with some odd sweet / tart citrus push, herbal bite, sharp bite, honey, grain. I drank the whole thing but Iím not convinced why. At least it was interesting for a bit. The term íWorld Seriesí annoys me.
