2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Rich golden color with fine white head. Slight skunky nose with some honey aromas. Light mouthfell with short malty finish. Flavors of malt, light hops, slight acidic note and little interest. Session yes, stunning no.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Nice, solid amber in colour. Aroma features dark cherry and caramel, with a slight floral scent in the background. A little too fizzy on the palate. Good balance between malt and hops, but the taste is too bland, with no major flavour notes standing out. Very enjoyable on tap (earthy, excellent bitter finish) but practically lifeless in the bottle.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Some crispiness, mild biscuity malt backing and light hops. Certainly not a very interesting beer, but very drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Brownish amber pour. Soft tan head. Malty aroma is leafy and roasted caramel malt, a little bit of oak and grass. Nice creamy mouthfeel. A bit too sweet throughout, but nice malty backbone with a grassy clean finish. Not bad.

Pours a nice copper colour with a thin head. Beautifull caramel malt aroma with a touch of hops. Caramel and malt flavour with a nice bitterness. An overall good beer

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Kinda crappy. it seems that there was some kind of attempt to make a nice lager, but this seems to fall a little short. bottom line: plain.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
341ml bottle - pours a deep golden, very dark actually, and maybe a bit closer to auburn than gold. Aroma is quite nice, with lots of malt and a bit of hoppiness in the background. Flavour is very crisp, with a nice sharp Saaz bite, a bit of sweet malt in the middle before a mild bitterness come forward in the finish. Otherwise, the mouthfeel is very thin, which is unfortunate because with a bit more body this would be greatly improved. It’s very drinkable...it goes down like water. Very clean, with no trace of adjunct or anything negative, and you can tell there in quality in here, but it’s just not very interesting and much too thin. Still, decent, just not something I’d likely pick up again.

I was expecting to taste some malt, but was very underwhelmed. Good mahogany colour and malty nose. The beer itself thought is pretty bland offering just a tantalising hint of potential. There was a bit of caramel sweetness, but that was it.

Bottle. Amber with large white foamy head that thins quickly. Faint roasted nut hop aroma. Taste is dry, bubbly, clear and crisp with a hint of nuts.
