2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.33l bottle. A big big head! Almost so huge that I want to call it gigantic! It’s fluffy and lasting as well - this on top of a near clear honey golden body. Doesn’t have an extreme nose, but it has some nice sweet caramel tones, light floral, faint hops in the background and a hint of grass and licorice. Not bad, still a bit mellow. It’s as expected lively on the carbonation and it has a thin mouthfeel. Taste what you can expect. I’m no huge fan of the genre but it tastes what it should taste I suppose. Light caramel sweet, well balanced, malty sweetness and a little bit of wet grains. A fair amount of bitterness in the finish and aftertaste that I’m experiencing to be slightly metallic. Easy enough to drink, but I feel no urges to have another bottle. 03.08.2013

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled from a bottle (thanks Jan Magnus) with a Best Before date of 12/3/2014. Despite being past its BB date, this amber ale poured with a hazy copper colour, a healthy white head and a malty nose. The taste is of mild toffee, malt, mild citrus fruits and hay. Very smooth and slightly creamy with a citrusy dry finish. Showing its age, but a real elegant beauty of a beer.
