3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draught in June, 2005. Nice creamy head; copper color. Nice hop aroma with some sweetness; yeasty aroma. The flavor was not what I expected: some bitterness, not much Belgian/French yeast flavor. There is some roastiness and sweetness.

Excellent beer! Had a cola brown color, with nice white foamy head. Flavor had a great balance of maltiness and hops, with a colorful sweetness(can’t put my finger on what type of sweetness). Another winner from Oliver!

Gentlier, both in terms of alcohol and flavor intensity, than most beers of the style. Mild yet tasty... Mostly malty with hints of hops. A good variety of flavors, but all mild and subdued compared to some of the wildier beers. A good ale to drink with lunch, or to introduce a friend to the world beyond lager.
