3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy orange-gold with a fluffy khaki head that settles, leaving touches of soapy lace. Nose involves caramel, toasted malt, some metallic notes, a bit of molasses, some dusty yeast, and nutty almond notes. Fairly sweet, somewhat bitter. Medium bodied, fairly oily, decent action, with a fairly dry and toasty finish. Interesting brew, pretty enjoyable.

Bottled. 5cl sample. The aroma has red fruits, apple, some earthy yeast. Bit hazy (notes don’t mention colour indication) beer with an off-white head. The taste is sweetish, slightly bitter and has red fruits, apples, hints of honey. Nice and unusual beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at Twenty Tap. Clear amber color with a medium off-white head that diminishes steadily to an outer ring. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel, wheat and fruit. Light-bodied with flavors of grainy malt, caramel and ripe fruit. Subtle hops in the background. The finish is grainy with an earthy malt aftertaste. Decent overall.

Very interesting beer. Give this to a BMC drinker to try and turn them on to good beer. Very light and easy to drink. Aroma was a little weak which worried me. Earth, nuts and a slight wheatiness. Pour was a somewhat cloudy dark orange with a thin off white ring for a head. Taste was delicious. Great session beer. Nutty, with notes of apple, banana and toasted biscuits. Very crisp with nice strong carbonation. Quick and light finish. Fantastic beer

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle. Hazy orange-tan body. This foamy head. An interesting, unique beer. Earthy, mild. The wheat adds some dryness. Some similarities to a steam beer of course. Mild hop character, not much to hide behind. An interesting mash up of beer flavors. Toasty light nutty tones. Very cool style to take on.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
My bottle of this was a bit of a gusher. It wasn’t to bad but open yours over the sink. As expected of a gushing beer, it poured w/ a huge head and took quite a while to get in the glass. This is an interesting beer. The malt presence is almost exaggerated. It’s only a little sweet but very nutty w/ some sherry-like oxidation to it. The carbonation is vigorous but not biting. As it warms a bit of a non-specific fruity character builds in the nose. There is no date on the bottle so I have no idea if this was old or something but one way or the other what I got tasted pretty good.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours lightly hazy golden orange color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a large amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of biscuit, cracker, toast, light caramel, pear, apple, floral, grass, pepper, light nuttiness, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance of bready malt, earthy hop, and yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of biscuit, cracker, toast, nuttiness, light caramel, pear, apple, herbal, floral, grass, pepper, and yeast earthiness. Minimal earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of biscuit, cracker, toast, nuttiness, light caramel, pear, apple, herbal, floral, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and robustness of bready malt, earthy hop, and yeast ester flavors; with zero cloying flavors after the finish. A slight metallic note noticed on the finish, but not really detrimental to the flavor. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, moderately crisp, and lightly bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice steam beer style. All around good balance and robustness of bready malt, earthy hops, and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
