3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear light brown, constant foam coming out of bottle. Thus lots of light brown lacing foam. Light caramel aroma, caramel notes in taste, light bitterness. Decent beer. (Velp 201606)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I bought this beer at the grain d’Orges, Crissier. I drank this beer at home. It is an average winter ale, the body is copper, regular carbonation, white and brown foam. The taste is well balanced: caramel, ginger bread, malt, hop and nuts.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Amber with an off white head. Smells of peach, lemon blossoms, biscuit. A bit boiled sweety. Smooth and quite full bodied with modest carbonation. Sweet with biscuity malt and some dried fruit, spices that creep up with moderate but insistent bitterness. Dryish finish with a little hint of alcohol (!) at the end. OK but not much character in this one.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at home. Pours a clear mahogany color with a big beige head. Aroma of caramel, apple cake, berries, sweet tea, leather and bread. The flavor is also a little sweet with toffee, bread, grass, leather and dried fruit. Has a slick and soft mouth feel, medium body and a balanced bitterness. A well-balanced and sweet English ale. A little careful though.
