2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Medium dark brown with a light red tint and a frothy creamy lasting, lacy dark beige head. Smells of malt, soft roast, caramel and brown sugar. Medium thin body with medium carbonation. Tastes very water with some sweet malt character, nut, chocolate and minimal hops on the finish. Mostly sweet. I found it boring to drink and it took me a while to finish it. I like mild but this is whatever.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
A fizzy mahagony brown, dark ruby read coloured mild with a small tan head. On the nose aromas of walnuts, roasted malts, wet leaves and light soy develop. Light fizzy on the palate with a light slick texture. Medium bodied beer light bitter and light sweet taste. Finish is a bit watery and too fast for my liking.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Une bière brune avec un goût agréable mais sans grand retour.
Le premier gout est proche de la guiness mais le manque d’arrière goût et une texture liquide la rend plus simple à boire. Comparé par une dame à un gout de cocacola sans sucre et avec un peu d’Alcool
