Bottle at home ... nice copper colour ... uninspired caramel hop nose ... sweet toffee fruity little syrupy ... odd metalic linger that lets it down a bit

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
I have to admit, I just didn't like this one. Caramelly colour, caramelly aroma, caramelly flavour. It's not for lack of vocabulary that this word is used so often...it's that this beer is one-dimensional, very sweet...if you're lucky you'll find some diacetyl or a hint of chocolate. Unbalanced...I want more than one thing in any beer, especially the strong malty ones.

Bottle at European Beer Festival, Copenhagen. A clear, deep copper beer with a minimal, off-white head. Roasted malt and toffee in the aroma, with dried fruits in the background. Full-bodied and mellow, with toffee and roasted malt. A nice flavor of dried fruits too. A nice one, but far from pushing the limits. (080913)
