2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap @ Haandfest 2014. This is a blurry deep amber looking one with a small lacing off-white bubbly head. Smells kinda caramelly with tones of red berries, cold coffee, old dry white chocolate and grassy silo grass. In the taste it has a soft roasted element. Feels like light oily in the mouth and it’s just below average on the bubbles. Mouthdrying., kinda medicinal in a way. Not bad to drink at all but perhaps a tad unbalanced on the extreme bitterness. A few plusses on the abv scale would benefit this one. 24.05.2014

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
In short: A hoppy, yeasty and earthy amber ale of some kind. Good beer.
How: Bottle at La Tape, Madrid.
The look: Cloudy amber body topped by a small off - white head.
In long: Nose is fruity and floral hops, soft caramel and a little earthy-farmhouse-thing going on. In mouth the beer has a round medium body with a medium carbonation, comfortable mouthfeel. Taste has soft caramel, earthy notes, surprisingly strong yeast presence, a good amount of hops. A hopping that is hard to nail down, part floral, part fruity, part wooden, moderately resinous. Nothing memorable, just a decent beer, just another beer for me that I can rate on ratebeer hoping that some people will find inspiration in my weight gain journey.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: brown-orange, short creamy light tan head, slight lacing. Aroma: caramel, light molasses, lemon, grapefruit, and pine. Taste: brown sugar, grapefruit, pine, toasted brown bread, hint of nuts. Finish: dry, bitter citrus lasts longer than the slightly sweet, toasty malts. Notes: Incredibly good palate. Flavors were mostly balanced, straying to the hoppy at the very end. Bottle from the Rare Beer Club.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bouteille. L'île du malt. Robe ambrée , épaisse mousse écrue. Nez de caramel, d'orange et de houblon légèrement floral. Bouche d'une belle longueur où l'on retrouve les saveurs du nez, plus portées par le zeste agrumes. Finale sèche portée par une belle amertume avec une touche résineuse de houblon. Bière bien foutue mais qui laisse une impression de déjà bue.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle (Birofilia2014, Zywiec)
Simple sweet grainy aroma, a touch of husks. Light brown, small beige head. Bigger grainy taste, lots of husks, plenty of wood, and some hazelnut. Finish bitter, plenty of nuttiness. Ends with a gentle tingle. Improves as it warms. Aroma was a bit stodgy, that’s the only down-side.
