Quite fizzy, medium brown, modest taste, pretty boring really. I wouldn’t bother with this.

Scharfer Geruch nach Tabakrauch und Hefe mit krassen Kaffearomen, auch im Geschmack. Leich wässrig. Aber zu krass Kaffee.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Thanks to Sean (Seanyfo) for this bottle! Dark nutbrown colour. The smell is toffee, roasted malt. The beer starts mild, a bit roasted. Nice. Hazelnuts, toffee, bitterness that gets more intense to the end. The beer is not too intense, but not watery. The aftertaste is long, bitter-malty, dark chocolate, nuts, dry.
--> Nice bitter, but I miss the typical notes of a traditional bitter ale.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
a mid to dark orange brown coloured beer with a frothy but weak white head. A malty aroma, other cereals are present like corn and oats, plus a slightly nuttiness. Dry mouthfeel. The taste is bitter, pithy citrus fruit, and grassy hops, which is soon balanced out by a dry, nutty malt flavour. The finish is long and bitter.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottle): Pours a clear dark amber, small off-white head. Aroma is malty with touches of nut and not much else, a tad weak on the nose. However, nice malty taste with flavours of nuts, caramel and biscuit. Fair bitterness and quite drinkable. Not bad.
