A well-balanced beer with a marked floral fruitiness coming through from the aromatic yeasts used in its production. 11.8P

11.2oz bottle in a lager glass. Pours amber with a light beige head. Aroma of caramel and toffee from the malts and something really bad and light hops. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not the best beer, and I don’t think it’s a bad bottle.

nearbeer (4925) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 3, 2016
330 ml. bottle. Clear copper-amber with a lasting spongy foam on top. Pleasant aroma of toasted pecan and earthy caramel is dampened by a metallic tinge. Tastes of earthy bread, toasted nut with the bitter pith, mild notes of cocoa and toffee. Dry grass on the finish. Light-medium body has mostly smooth, medium fizz and a decent balance. Pretty good example of the style.

Clear copper beer with small white head. Aroma is fruity and some yeast hints. Taste is malty and caramel, slightly bitter. Light body. Overall refreshing average amber lager.

Ritzn (530) - Bavaria, GERMANY - SEP 5, 2016
Copper with little white head. Aroma is raisins, some smoke and lots of malts. Taste is quite thin. Not as much malty sweetness as expected, but rather watery and fruity sour. Thin body. Some rubber band is definitely in there. Meh.

Senka (1061) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 22, 2016
33cl BBE 08/17 Pours clear amber, with yeasty head. Aroma of iron and corn syrup. Same is the taste. A bit malty, but for some reason overly sweet, with a dash of iron and a good amount of corn syrup. It is above medium bodied, pleasant;y carbonated, and not as thin as low-level ambers. Good when served around 5-7degC. I liked how it looks, and how it feels, but I do not find it tasty or interesting.

Tranquillity (1878) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 13, 2016
Bottled at the Terroni restaurant in Toronto. Brown body, large off-white head. The aroma is malty and subtle, the taste sweet with herbal flavors.

Malts and caramel, copper with a huge white head not very persistant, light body, medium carbonation, principally caramel...better than many industrial beer today.

Andrew196 (1475) - Katy, Texas, USA - AUG 10, 2016
Bottle from Micelis in Hollywood. Pours clear, light brown, very unstable head. Aroma of sweet, yet stale nuts. Some caramel and chocolate came through on the tongue, but it came across as flat and lazy.

DocJitsu (1715) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - AUG 1, 2016
Pours an amber-golden with a tall, well-retaining, eggshell-colored head. Rich fig and brown sugar aromas. A metallic note as well. Everything noted in the aroma is easily detected in the flavor. Horehound hard candy as well.
