1.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
bottled. this ale is not bad, but too sweet for my taste. I rather prefer the hoppy bitter ales. this one reminds too much of an industrial German type lager, that is sweet. on the other hand, it has a nice herbal aroma and the after taste reminds me a bit of Belgian ales. overall I didnít like this beer. the sweetness destroyed the joy. too bad.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a dark yellow-gold color. Thin off-white head that dissipates quickly but leaves some residual lacing. Aroma is floral, grassy with hints of grain. Flavor is a mix of floral with sweet malt and clover honey. Light bodied and very dry finish that borders on astringent. Light, easy-drinking and sessionable, but not something I would probably seek out.

Im not sure why this beer has been rated low because I loved it. This has an herbal floral flavor with a spicy peat aroma. Mellow caramel undertones with a smooth palate.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Light amber colour with low head and medium body. Nose of nothing special, it smells like a wood in late fall when all the leaves are pretty much rotten after rain. Taste of leaves, old flowers, tea, mild hops and cellar. Dusty finish, ends quite watery and thin. No real taste.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
For a real beer this maybe is the worst I have ever had in my life. Well, if you start the evening with a Hopfenweisse and take this Fraoch as the next one...tough... Thing is, I wanted to like it but I got nothing. No nose, nor real aroma, just a bit of sourish hay taste. The best thing about that beer is the bottle. Watery from start to end. Huge disappointment.

The pour is a clear deep orange or amber, if you so desire, the head is a creamy beige, fair lace. Nose is earthy, heather, peat like tones also present.

(Bottle): Pours a clear light amber with small white head. Aroma of floral, herbs, grains and some sweetness. Taste has a background of mild floral flavours with big bursts of honey-like sweetness coming through. Ends with a dry, bitter/sweet finish and smooth mouthfeel.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle. Golden amber colour, foamy white head and very slight spicy herbal aroma. Taste is vanilla and blackberry, herbal, malty, some bitterness plus a lingering warming spicy dry mouth feel and some peaty notes. Herbal rather than hoppy, OK.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From bottle, courtesy of Frank. Mild herbal-floral notes, a bit of lemongrass and some sweetness. Medium golden amber clear with thin white head. Medium body with medium-high carbonation. Sweet with pale malts, herbal notes and a light bitterness. Overall, a mild ale with decent sweet herbal quality.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
0,33cl bottle from Brewdog Slovensko. Aroma is floral, citrus fruits, lemony, grassy. Clear deep golden colour, moderately sized head, quickly disappearing. Taste is honey sweet, spicy, lemony, zesty, lightly tart. Quite nicely balanced considering the different flavours, nothing is overpowering. Finish is lemony, zesty, grassy, medium duration. Few bonus points, because it is not as good as it is interesting. Not many occasions for me to try a traditional ale with almost no hops (no flavour, aroma, or bitterness). This comes in nicely balanced and easily drinkable.
