Bottle in Cannes, France. Clear ruby brown beer, off white head which dissipates to thin. Nose is sweet malt, toasty and roasted malt, chocolate malt, lager yeast. Taste is bread, chocolate, sweet malt, toasty, light body. It’s more of a schwartzbier than a brown ale.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear dark amber/light brown color, topped with a small beige colored head. Quite mild aroma, some notes of roasty malt and caramel can be picked up. Taste is mild, sweet and malty with some caramel in there. Not bad, easily drinkable and very gentle.

Bottle 25cl. Brown/red with a beige head. Nice foam. Light spice in the nose, for the rest almost no aroma. Flavour goes in direction of dried fruit, but not as complex as other strong beers. Not bad at all. Quite short finish.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cola red colour and appearance- no head of any sort. Little carbonation - fairly smooth palate. No great shakes - disappointed as liked last year.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tasted 16/3/15. BB 08/2015. Poured a clear dark amber with a few light tan bubbles forming a collar. Laced poorly. Carbonation very low and fine. Aroma with subtle toffee and brown sugar; no obvious hops. Taste malty, very sweet caramel, no obvious hops bitterness; taste similar to aroma but not as strong. Light body. Smooth with lingering sweetness. Quite OK.

Weak aroma of sugar candy or molasses. Sweet brown beer with a very watery finish. Too simple.
