2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle shared at local tasting, can’t remember who brought this, but thanks. Pours a clear amber with a thin head, the aroma and flavor was pretty much the same, nothing, a little sweet in the finish, ugh.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Sweet agave non beer sweetness aroma. Really bad, maybe poisoned for the American beer. Brutal, way too sugary and sweet. Ouch.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The head is good, the body red-brown. It smells creamy, amber-malty. The taste is creamy, malty, but mild, later it is a little bit more intensive. Ok 11/10/10/9/12/10

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle from Lupe Pinto, Glasgow (£1.49):
Sweet malts and a light, sweet floral aroma with some caramel on top. Not very strong and quite basic but not a bad smell either.
Clear, light brown with a thin, foamy white head on top that is about a quarter centimetre tall and stays consistent.
Hop filled aroma with some floral notes and a touch of caramel from the nose, this is followed by some toasted biscuits and very light, sweet fruit flavours.
Thin and light smelling beer but an easy one to drink, there is a sweet, dry finish and carbonation is medium throughout.
Not a bad beer really, just not a great one either or all that exciting. There is a nice caramel aroma and this is present in the taste but other than that the beer is just a little bland and doesn’t have enough going for it to make you want to try it again.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Shared 330 ml bottle, from Voldby Købmandsgård, Denmark. ABV is 5%. Reddish brown colour, moderate off-white head. Strong aroma of over-ripe raspberries, stale jam and dust. The flavour has notes of caramel, but is not as sweet as I feared. Drinks quite well, but unfortunately a little of the "stale jam" character of the aroma follows into the taste. Moderate hops in the finish.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
11.2 oz bottle pours a clear copper/amber color with small off-white head. Aroma is mostly malty/caramel with some floral hops and a touch of cardboard. Body is medium/light without too much carbonation. Taste is sweet with slight bitterness in the finish. Crisp mouthfeel and easily drinkable, but not too memorable.

Bottle: Clear, amber coloured, small and stable off-white foamy layer, fruity-toasty nose with caramelly traces; dryish bitter-sweet flavour, light bodied, but quite soft; slightly lingering bitter-toasty finish with a certain fruitiness. Quite nice...
