3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle VIA Malt of The Earth Beer Club. Pours a clear amber with an average size beige head. I am not getting much aroma here, just some subtle slightly biscuity malts.Interesting flavors. Starts sweet but quickly turns bitter. I detect some toastiness, a tiny bit of chocolate malt, and some grassy/spicey hops in the crisp finish. A bit of a metallic aftertaste. Medium body. Medium carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml Bottle from Hyberniska Mini-Market, Prague, Czech Repbulic (45Czk):
Sweet malts & caramel with faint alcohol & some brown sugar. There is some bread & toasted malts coming through & the beer is about medium strength with a good balance.
Clear, caramel amber with a thin & patchy white head that is slightly soapy.
Sweet malts feature heavily, along with some caramel and brown sugar. A few subtle hops & some spice feature too along with a slightly fruity base to it & some marzipan from the middle on.
Light-medium & smooth, sweet too with some alcohol being present although the taste is quite clean and wet throughout.
Sweet & malty, almost like a doppelbock in some respects. While the beer wasn’t exactly anything special, it is still a drink that I wouldn’t mind having again.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap at Angleterre, Helsinki. Reddish orange, small lacy head. Nutty caramel, malty and fruity nose. Strange, but very tasty and full flavor. Malts, bitter hoppiness which I’m not very familiar with and a tropical fruity tartness. Pretty messy and unappealing overall.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Clear orangeish amber pour with a dense beige head that lasts a while. Aroma of biscuity malt, toast and caramel. The flavour mirrorrs the aroma with an initial hint of sweetness on the front palate followed by lingering bitterness on the back. Nice sessionable Vienna, on the heavy side for the style but still good.
