3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I tried this beer on June 10, 2009 at "The Beerbistro" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer poured a solid brown colour with a tan coloured head that laced. The aroma was sweet malt with a nut presence and some hops. The mouthfeel was medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour was sweet malt, dark fruit, and a hint of a bitter finish. A good beer - but not great.

Pours sort of a chestnut brown with a nice big foamy head. Aroma is lightly hopped but lots of rich doughy malt. Sweet toffee and rich malt flavour, slightly nutty with a light floral hop and a medium body. Great example of this style.

Tap offering. Much cleaner than pils. Soft raisin. Dough. Easy drinking. Low bitterness. Better than expected.

a beautiful beer, and way less bitter and more complex that modern hop explosions.

Pours a clear dark copper amber with a light brown head that last for a while. Aroma of grassy hops, caramel, earthiness and some light floral esthers. Taste is grassy earthy hops, with a light caramel and a night smooth light bitterness throughout. Excellent sessionable bitter, one of the best I’ve had in the style.
