Light haze on this amber beer, little white head. Palate is light and semi dry with a decent amount of minerally carbonation. Light dry malt, a little cream. It’s also slightly lager like. Mild orange hops, fresh tasting but somewhat repressed. Touch of peel. Dry finish with a mild bitter linger. A touch insipid this beer but ultimately fine.

fiulijn (14298) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 15, 2013
Bottle from Au Grain d’Orge, Crissier, 4.1% ABV
Bright copper-amber color with medium head. Very nice fruity aroma, and toffee-caramel. The flavor is more disappointing, the body being weak, the caramel tired, with a touch of cabbage, chicory bitterness without much hop quality, apart from some resins.
Mediocre.
