2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Amber color with big head. Aroma is straightforward malts. Taste is sweet caramel malt, then bitter towards the end and a heavily metallic finish. Oh boy. Nothing special and not pleasant. Drinkable until you start swallowing.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear amber color, topped with a small and quickly dissipating white head. Slight caramel aroma, some hoppy notes and slightly smell/dusty. Taste is sweet and malty, a bit too much, a little caramel later on, finishing with an ok bitterness, but too sweet in the aftertaste again. Not really nice, to be fair.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: NOV 27, 2014 330ml bottle served in its own tulip-like glass.
A: Pours a beautiful and amber to copper color forming a big and bubbled white to yellow head. Good retention and many lacings left
S: Roasted malts, toffee, caramel malts, notes of honey. Flowery and citrus Heineken style hops in the end
T: Follows the nose. A slightly sweet upfront with strong notes of caramel, toffee and sweet grains. Notes of honey. A little bit metallic taste in the beginning. Hoppy balanced bitterness at the end. Despite of being an Amber Ale, I would dare to say that it uses Lager yeasts. As a matter of fact, I would call it an improved amber version of Heineken. Anyways, the yeasts profile is quite bready and not fruity as expected from an Ale
M: Light body. Medium to high carbonation. Bready and mild bitter aftertaste
O: Good drinkability. Easy drinking. Not bad

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle bought at an EuroSpar store in Basel. Pours a clear amber coloured body. Diminishing white head, fragile lacing. Malt-fruity nose, grass and earth. Forest, grass, nuts, and caramel flavours, rather jam-like. Mostly sweet to the ending. Soft carbonated. Drinkable (hotel room, 28.07.2014).
