sto bevendo una bad elf 2013, al naso il primo sentore è lievito, lontanamente vanigliato. nel bicchiere si presenta biondo opalescente, al palato si percepisce una sensazione di birretta appena secchina e lontanamente amara.... non è il mio genere... cheers..

Così è scivolata via molto bene, dopo un pomeriggio di mangiare e bere, ci voleva qualcosa di leggero. Non male.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A surprise Christmas present from the spouse. I actually would have sworn I had rated this. I would have been wrong. Somewhere after 1000 ratings is when I started having a hard time keeping track mentally of what I had rated and not. Around 3000, it became totally hopeless. In any case, clear gold, decent head. Aroma is hoppy, but quite English in nature, with a focus on earthy notes. Flavor is light biscuity malts and a delightful hop finish - mostly earthy, some floral, quite English, but very pronounced. Did not detect the theoretical Cascade hops - maybe they were used as a bittering addition? In any case, rather enjoyed this - I think this might be my first England rating of 2013 - which shows you how things have changed over the decades.

Golden color with a whitish head. Honey and floral herb flavors with light malts and a bit of skunkiness. Punchy, strong, but not bitter through the finish.
