3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Mittleres Bernstein, reichlich Schaum. Getreidig-süßliches Aroma ähnlich einem Rosinenstuten, aber auch rezent. Honigtönender Geschmack, lieblich und sanft, um dann zügig herb anzuziehen und gar leicht bitter auszuklingen. Wirkt etwas unrund, ist aber durchaus komplex und süffig!

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a clear amber colour, with a thin white head. The aroma was of caramel and malt and was rather strong. The flavour is medium to high bitter, with oaky alcoholic notes and chewy caramel. The palate is smooth and the bitterness sticks around for a while to deliver a very refreshing ale. Serve this "warm" and you won’t be disappointed. Drinking it cold destroys the flavours!

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. It’s pouring a small, off-white head over a clear, dark golden body. The aroma has some notes of butterscotch, but is mostly fruity. Apples, pears and some notes of dried apricots. Lightly malty, very boring. Medium body, dry and softly carbonated. The flavor has a nice bitterness, with pale malts, fruityness and some faint butterscotch. Not much impact from the brandy cask staves. Bitter finish. A quite decent beer, but oh so utterly boring. 121124

500ml bottle. Aroma is toffee, malty. Some hops. Pours a medium thick faded cream head. Colour is gold, somewhat cloudy with light carbonation. Initial taste very bitter with malt and grapefruit, vineyard peach tartness coming through. Unusual but in no means a bad thing. Short finish. Very nice, dangerously moreish!
