3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
In short: A toasted, caramelized and moderately hoppy amber beer that is surprisingly satisfying.
How: Bottle 330ml, consumed fresh a few days after from the beer store associated to Bar ANIMAL for whom this beer is made.
The look: Cloudy amber body topped by a white ring of foam leaving good lacings on the glass.
In long: Nose has pleasant resinous hops that are both wooden and fruity as well as toasted bread and caramel. Body is medium to full in size and with a relaxed carbonation, ok mouthfeel. Taste is follows through from the aroma, nice crisp caramelized cereals, strong toasted bread sensation, wooden hops, citrusy notes, resin, mild bitterness. relatively dry finish. Listing flavor element can only tell so much, I can’t quite put the reason into words but this beer was very satisfying. A very cohesive and well balanced beer. A bottle I bought in a charming little Spanish beer store, but I can’t help but feel like I don’t belong when I’m in a beer store that doesn’t have grocery carts.

On tap @ Cardinal. Unclear dark orange body with a nice off-white head. Lovely, strong citric fruity aroma like peaches, pine and tropical fruit together with caramel malt. Flavor has malt sweetness, citric and tropical fruit, some dry fruit, pine and pleasant good bitterness. Fine body and a long and fruity bitter aftertaste. Sampled this together with a few medium quality IPA’s and had to say a clearly prefer this well balanced APA. Might be one of the better APA I have tasted.

Fra fad på Mandag i annen aug-13: flott hivtt skum etterfulgt av en frisk stikkelsbæraktig armoma (Nelson Sauvin?) som sier "drikk meg". God, lett og fint balansert smak. Må sjekke flere produkter fra dette bryggeriet nærmere i Spania i november.
