3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rated in 2009 in the Shinkansen from bottle.
Agressive pine hopped aroma.
I assume it’s amber, anyway the owl on the Label is cute.
Honey roasted sweet entry, pine and citric balance, retains some sticky restsugars, as a consequence a
Solid body, fine sparklyness dissolves it on the tongue. Quite drinkable.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled, shared by the OMH gang. Pours out in a brownish amber colour with a small creamy disappearing white foam. Crisp and fresh aroma of black cherries, grass, nuts and blood-oranges. Medium-bodied with a crisp and rather hoppy flavour of cedar-wood, grass and orange-peels with sweet undertones of red berries. Black cherries, toasted malts, nuts and orange-peels in the long aftertaste. Very nice, a hoppy and elegant amber ale, that’s quite rare.

Draft at Taps Beer Bar, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a deep chestnut brown colour with a frothy white head and loads of lace. The aroma is rich red berry fruit yeast and spice. The flavour is medium bitter with some fruit, peppery spice and liqourice on the palate. The finish is smooth and bitter with a little malt. A super beer I must say.
