   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 17/20
aleigator (282) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - DEC 9, 2014
From Keg. Has a dark brown color, with ruby red hints to it, and a froth, generous head. Smells of slightly sour, fresh yeast, rustic bread malts and toffee hints, resulting into a slightly sweeter malt body, which overall still appears to be very earthy. Tastes dryer than expected, with a decent bitterness, coating up the bready, toasted malts. Malts then turn even more present, introducing a caramelized aspect to the palate, still carried by a grainy bread foundation. Returning with with a slick aspect to it, the bitterness shines again during the finsih, supported by a well fitting carbonation, while there is almost no sweetness left, leading to a well balanced finish.

PsychoGunnar (200) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 12, 2014
Unassuming smell, clear deep amber in colour with a bitter two-finger layer of cream-yellow foam. The taste is that of a more mature, possibly wood-aged altbier; nutty with notes of deciduous forest, campfires and caramel. High standard altbier.

Sample at Great British Beer Festival 2014, London. Clear golden/copper beer with a small offwhite head. Fruity hop aroma, grassy, caramel, bread notes. Fruity hop flavor, citrus, hay, some biscuits. Maybe not your typical altbier, but kinda drinkable.
