3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
In short: A toasted copper lager, simple but effective session beer.
How: Tap at brewpub.
The look: Cloudy copper body topped by a persistent medium beige head leaving a medium amount of lacings on the glass.
In long: Nose has some toasted tobacco, yeast, earth. A certain rural character in the aroma. In mouth the beer has a full fluffy body supported by a generous carbonation. Taste has earthy cereals. toasted sliced brown bread, smooth caramel, tobacco leafs, a mild refreshing acidity in the finish. Toasted earthy after-taste. I liked that beer more than I thought I would, nothing fancy here, but each flavor is well defined, the beer is tasty, nourishing and refreshing. Underrated session beer, better than I expected from this touristy brewpub. Easy to drink, after a pint I didn’t feel any alcohol buzz so I sent down a second pint to check on the first pint to see why it wasn’t doing its job.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a cloudy, deep brown colored body with an inch thick, creamy, light brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a heavy lacing. Aroma is heavy on the DMS with a lightly sweetened, bready caramel malt backing as well as a light toast and a few dark fruits. Flavor is better. Some toast, lightly sweetened caramels, a few dark fruits, bread, and a slight roast. Finishes dry and slightly bitter with a touch of toasty sweetness. Fairly lengthy aftertaste following a medium body and a soft, moderate carbonation. Overall, the aroma wasn’t very good, but the flavor was better. Dry and slightly roasty with a decent caramel sweetness. Eh.

2/12 On tap at the brewpub, poured hazy copper body with medium sized head. Toasted aroma sweet caramel malt which dominated also in its sweet flavor. Simple as that, notes of nuts may be present as well. Medium to fuller in body with long sweet sugary and caramel finish. Liked the other one better, this was too sweet and sticky.
