330 ml bottle, rated originally 2014-09-09 @ Strasbourg
Clear ruby reddish brown beer with little beige head. Aroma has loafy maltiness, herbs and earthiness. Flavor is sweet with syrup and loafy bread. Palate is medium full with mild carbonation. Finish has mild bite of bitterness, sweetness, some alcohol, some licorice and some herbs. A really sweet brew, much like a dunkel.

Flaska. Mörkbrun öl med smutsvitt skum. Dofter av malt, karamell och nöt. Lite väl söt i smaken för min del. Liten beska. Smakinslag av malt, brunt socker och karamell.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can from Carrefour, Nice. Clear reddish-brown, no head. Has a slightly gritty taste whilst remaining pretty ordinary. There’s some sweetness, but not much and some smoothness in its texture, but again only a smattering of this. Not much chocolate evident if at all. Its strength is not evident.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.25L bottle. Pours a clear red-brown with a frothy tan head. Really nice malt aromas. Chocolate, cinammon, caramel. Initially, quite sweet with some hints of burnt sugar/ caramel that was on the nose. Stays sweet throughout, but finishes with just enough roasted malt and herby hop bitter to balance it out. Medium-body with a surprisingly thin mouthfeel (pleasant given the sweetness) and mild carbonation. Overall, a fairly sweet beer, but features some nice malt aromas and flavors. Even though this is a macro-brew, it’s a good representative of what brown ales can be.
