Aroma has vegetables, some bready malt, toffee and hints of caramel. Flavour has vegetables, bready malt, toffee and caramel. Finishes with grassy hops and pea soup. Feels like a Laitila beer.

375ml bottle

Pours amber orange with a thick white head. Aroma of bready malts, vegetables, grassy hoppiness and caramel. Taste is smooth, bready and malty with some grassy hoppiness and syrupy caramel. Finish is smooth, malty and bitter with some notes of caramel and syrup. Okay, a bit unbalanced.

GBZ59 (987) - BARCELONA (Catalonia), SPAIN - APR 3, 2014
Botella de 375ml. Vaso Tubo. Color ámbar profundo y apariencia turbia. Espuma marfil amarillenta que crea un esponjosa, tupida y persistente corona que deja encajes en las paredes. Intensos aromas de maltas Munich y Caramelo con notas de chocolate fundido. En consonancia con los aromas, la entrada tostada y dulce cede a sabores de chocolate. Cuerpo pleno y carbonatación suave. Paladar viscoso y denso. En el intermedio, trazos de galleta tostada y biscotes junto a notas herbales y toques de fruto seco conforman un prolongado y suave final amargo/dulce. Los frutos secos regresan en el retrogusto. Una sólida estructura malteada que mantiene a raya a los lúpulos, a pesar del alto perfil de IBUs. Una buena representante del Estilo Sticke: más lupulizada – aunque el amargor es limpio- y mayor malteado caramelizado – nada empalagoso- que una Alt standard, con un ABV muy bien integrado. Refrescante y deliciosa!! Una obra maestra. 375ml bottle. Stange glass. Deep amber color, foggy appearance. Yellowish off-white froth creates a close, foamy & lasting crown leaving lacing on sides. Caramel, Munich malt & fudge chocolate intense aromas. As expected from aromas, sweet toasted upfront yields to chocolate flavors. Full body. Soft carbonation. Viscous palate. Hints of toasted biscuit & bread, herbal notes & dried nut touch. Long & smooth sweet/bitter finish. Nuts are back on the aftertaste. Solid malty backbone holds hoppiness in well balance, despite its high IBU profile. Nice spot of the Sticke Style: hoppier - but bitterness remains clean- & more caramelish maltiness -but no cloying at all- than a regular Alt & finally a well integrated ABV. Flavorful & delicious!! A masterpiece.

Torrefacto (373) - SPAIN - MAR 27, 2014
Color cobre limpio con espuma densa color crema. Aromas de azúcar moreno y resinas. La tectura al inicio es maltosa, el sabor es sobre todo resinoso y seco, bastante duradero en el regusto. Rica.

ASPETTO: color ambrato, limpida con una schiuma color vaniglia, compatta , media presenza e buona persistenza. OLFATTO: profumi floreali, crosta di pane, miele e note erbali. GUSTO: un dolce contenuto, smussato da un pizzicore carbonato pungente che mantiene caratteri tostati , miele a cui si affiancano amaricanti nettamente luppolati, con toni terrosi, ma anche un tocco leggermente balsamico; finale intenso, con un altalena fra residui dolci e maltati e ancora un ultimo colpo di coda degli amaricanti che aumentano grazie ad un tocco alcolico che si sente in gola. TEXTURE: corpo medio, vellutata e leggermente oleosa , ben carbonata. COMMENTO FINALE: piuttosto lontana dall’alt beer tedesca tradizionale, con un apporto molto pi’u spinto a livello di luppoli che la portano ad essere di fatto una amber ale con carattere, dinamica e molto ben equilibrata. estrema pulizia sia al naso che in bocca. ottima, sia quello che sia.

375 mL bottle. Very nice amber color with a thick lacy head. Caramel and toasted bread on the nose, with layers of earthy, resinous and spicy hop. Fairly sweet but well balanced with a hearty dose of bittering hops. Moderate carbonation and a sticky mouthfeel. Finishes quite lingering and bitter.

lusikka (5359) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 17, 2014
375 ml bottle, thanks olio. Pours a dark ruby colour with a dark hazy ruby colour with a white firm head. Aroma of bread, red roses, berries, green tea and fresh grass. Rich flavour of floral bitterness, mango, berries, resin, grass and biscuit. Full bodied, thick mouthfeel and a sweet, bitter, mango finish. Very interesting. I like this quite a bit. Pretty close to an Amber Ale.

375 ml bottle @ Timo A.
Pours slightly hazy dark mahogany color with a small head. Aroma of sourish fruits, mild dark berries, some citric fruits also with subtle yeast and caramel notes. Flavor of dark fruits, hay, resinous hops and rose hip. Nice odd little nyances here. Maybe not a pure Altbier, but quite interesting with it’s resinous hoppy twist.

Pours deep caramel into a shaker. Tan head with excellent retention recedes leaving sticky lacing to crater surface. Sweet toffee and treacle aromas. Dark caramel, molasses, toffee, nutbread, toast and pit fruit upfront turing to a dry, lasting bitter earth finish.
