2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
440ml Nitro Can from SuperValu (Ireland - Ł1.69):
Bland malts and a little sweetness from some brown sugar, there is a very faint and almost water like smell with some bitterness at the end.
Thick and quite creamy too before settling to a dark caramel brown colour with a very creamy, darkish white head on top that is about the width of a pinky and holds very well.
Bland with some malts and light caramel flavours and a sugary sweetness following this. There is a burnt toast and nutty flavour. The beer is quite bitter and very creamy.
Creamy with a medium to full body yet it still feels slightly watery. The beer seems quite bland and there is almost no carbonation with some small amounts of bitterness at the end.
Great looking beer when poured and settled but everything else about it was fairly average sadly. The aroma was bland and unexciting, definitely not an ale worth looking out for. I’m not sure if it would be better on draft and I’m not sure if I really want to find out either.It was drinkable and the nitro can was a plus.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sample from 33cl bottle @ home from Rewe, Germany. Clear amber color, medium fizzy white mostly diminishing no lacing head. Aroma caramel, red fruits, tea, leaves, slightly roaste malt, light cereal, quite watery. Taste medium sweetness, lightly bitter. Light body, thin texture, lively carbonation, medium lasting sweetish finish. Easy to drink, bit too sweet for me, too watery, but not that bad.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours clear amber with minimal tan head. Watery. Light body. Aroma of some caramel. Maybe it’s because of the can, but it is terrible and disappointing.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
440ml can containing a nitrogenated widget. Eventually settles to a clear amber beer with a creamy off white head. Light nose of toasty caramel malts with traces of floral hops. Palate is flat and light bodied but with a creamy texture. Bland light malt flavours and a low bitterness. Disappointing.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Botella de 330ml. Vaso de Pinta. Malta caramel y matices de Madera fresco al destapar. Brota con color ámbar anaranjado y apariencia algo velada. Espuma blanca y tupida aunque se disipa con rapidez. El perfil aromático se completa con notas de hierba y gentil naranja. Entrada caramelizada que precede a un agradable amargor herbáceo. Cuerpo ligero-medio y carbonatación moderada a moderadamente alta. Textura densa y paladar reseco. El caramelo y el tímido cítrico regresan en el intermedio y permanece en el dulce y levemente amargo final con recuerdos de naranja. Prolongado retrogusto de madera. Suave y de trago fácil con sensaciones resecas y refrescantes.
330ml bottle. Pint glass. Caramel & hints of fresh wood as cap is removed. Pours orangish amber in color with chill hazy appearance. White froth is close but quickly diminished. Aroma profile is completed by grassy & gentle orange notes. Caramelized upfront followed by kind herbal bitterness. Light to medium body. Moderate to moderately high carbonation. Dense texture & dried palate. Caramel & shy citric come back in the middle & linger into a sweet/slightly bitter finish with orange memories. Long woody aftertaste. Smooth & easy drinkability, dried & refreshing sensations.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
33cl bottle. Pale brown ale with big creamy head what disappear quite fast. Sweet malt and just a little hop dominated. Maybe nut you can feel. Good ale but it is very expesive for the not very big quality.
