Fin (8132) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2015
On tap at Café Refuge, Lier, Belgium, Friday 20th March 2015 Pours amber, very lively with a huge frothy sticky white head. A fairly safe beer, bit too cold but it’s fine if a little thin. Malty, watery sweetness, some red berries. Ok. A5 A4 T6 P3 Ov11 2.9

vickey9 (656) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 10, 2015
Dark amber with a white head. Nose is cheesy. Body is light, texture thin, carbon high. Taste is sweet with acid tones Palate mostly gives a feeling of herbs and malts with hints of caramel. B@H

PlutonowyMan (88) - POLAND - FEB 25, 2015
The smell of malt, plum fried. Foam poor. Plum also like taste, but watery, weak bitterness, a little sour and malt. The end like even more watery.

Towey1989 (338) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2015
Keg at Den Engel, Leek. Clear deep amber colour with thick white head. Aroma of caramel, sweet malt and almonds. Taste of caramel, dark fruits and brown sugar. Too cold to get any decent flavours. High carbonation and thin body. Short, metallic finish. Not a good beer.

Erzengel (4968) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - FEB 8, 2015
*Old rating, 30cl, 6%, best before 13/12/06. Würzig-karamelliges Bier, Hauch von Getreide. Mild-weich mit moderater Herbe und leicht süßlicher Malz-Getreidenote auf der Zunge.

bartlebier (2420) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - FEB 5, 2015
25cl bottle bb10/2015, AH Gent. Nostalgic rebuy&rerate, taking me back to the adolescent days of weekly "Palm Fridays" and homemade hotdogs. Just like regular Palm, I remember this as being maltier and richer. Aroma of amber malts fresh like cut wood spawns and toasted bread crust, marred by a whiff of macro-metallic chicken broth and sulphur. Made in smaller batches, this beer and style of Spéciale Belge in general has the potential of competing with fragrant franconian Kellers, but alas has been adopted by few brewers & relinquished by many... Taste sees some lemon peel and herbal hop accents pierce through the rich amber malt blanket, conjuring up unripe chestnute and banana before becoming bogged down in a quick and uninspired dry finish, probably the astringent coda of nostalgia. Always up for a revisiting this potentially great beer on draught or in 75cl bottle...

Maakun (1197) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 19, 2015
Bottle. Clear amber with small white head. Some caramel, very light spices and a touch of orange. Light sweet with light bitter finish. Watery. Nothing offensive, but not that good either.

Pours a nice reddish amber with a thin white head. Hints of caramel and bleach in the aroma, taste is a bit sweet but nice.

Quand une grande brasserie (en chiffres) vous « offre » 25 cl de liquide … permettez-moi de rire. Bière d’hiver à 5,7 % abv … permettez-moi (encore) de rire. Couleur entre caramel mou et ambre clair. Clarté nette (de toute façon, il n’y a pas de refermentation). Bulles fines en fontaine, mais peu nombreuses. Mousse beige clair, qui n’est qu’un nappage diaphane. Arômes (si l’on peut dire) de caramel (on y revient..), un peu de malt, sucre. 1ère bouche douce (bien sûr), sur du caramel et un peu de nougat. Arrière-bouche super … courte. 2ème sur un peu de malt grillé, et fin de bouche fade. Arrière-bouche plate. 3ème banalissime. Longueur nulle. Finale, une honte. CONCLUSION : bière inqualifiable, et dire que c’était le cadeau de fin d’année du brasseur à ses clients !!! Permettez-moi de rire...
