3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Al naso è piena con decisi sentori maltati e caramellati. In bocca è di corpo pieno, caramello, tostata, maltata è un finale appena alcolico.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330mL from Cave a Bulles. I usually don’t like these Page 24 beers but ryan is so obsessed with them I’ll have to give these another shot. Pours clear reddish amber with a towering yellow head with sheen top. Nice retention. Malty raisin and oatmeal nose with decent citrus hops. Taste is tangy and almost metallic with oatmeal and mineral water. Earthy grain and mild oatmeal but still with little body to match the malt forwardness.
Tangy and coppery. Webby lace. After decanting and warming it
gains some nice rustic cinnamon oatmeal. Fuller body. Very nice.
Excellent malty showcase with mild raisin and butter grainy bread
crust. Rustic farmy grain feel with full on malt showcase. Quite nice.
Takes a lot of patience to enjoy. No off character. Any trace metallic eliminated with decanting and warming. Gains that elusive thick and oily correct "malt extraction" excellence. Very nice though tempermental and giving poor first impressions. Great for style. Pain in the ass to dissect.

Bottle. Great cork pop! DarK red-amber. Nice nose with hints of cinnamon and candy sugar. Light body. Sweet but almost a floral sweetness that is hard to place. A bit of earthiness and I may just be imagining that hint of cinnamon again.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.75l bottle. This one pours a beautiful light clouded deep amber body with a big light fluffy off-white head. The aroma is light yeasty with red apples, zest, candy and some hints of alcohol. It has a lovely creamy mouthfeel with a average carbonation level. Flavors light sweet but also a hint of something mild autumn-sourish - but it suits it really nice. Light fruity with more red apples as well, some yeast and candy. Quite delicate indeed, and it ends with a light pepperish and almost chocolate paper-fruity finish and a hint of alcohol in the aftertaste. Great stuff!
