Nose is lots of bread, leather and malt. Nice. Appearance is a lovely tan colour. Taste is bread, toffee, nuts, slight spice, sweet oaky finish. Palate suitable. I enjoyed this much more than I thought I would.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
50cl bottle, Sagasser Coburg. Pours a dark brown with a red hue and appetising solid creamy white head. Easy lager-style drinking, light mouthfeel, with not much upfront aroma, but an array of subtle and earthy hints of: slight roasted malts, caramel, raisin, walnuts, hop spice, liquorice developing in the back palate on the swallow, without lingering. Extra App. points for the confident literary-themed label.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Copper brown glowing body and creamy beige head. Quite light aroma, nutty, earthy, cereal and a light spice. Clean yeast. Light bitter, more pronounced taste profile. Good rounded, balanced character. So in the end it is still a very enjoyable beer, even though the aroma is somewhat dimmed and could use more roasted or hop character. (50cl bottle from Wasana’s Getränken Oase)
