2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
I might have enjoyed this more than some of the other reviewers. Thing is, Iíve never come across a similar beer. Never seen anything like it produced by a British brewer, so thatís a note of advice. I assume it is a Vienna style or a Munich style beer.
Aroma is terrible, smells of rust and metal. Very off putting. Colour is ok, it is beyond amber and meddling in the middle brown. Flavour is interesting. It is crisp as a lager, but with plenty of malt and caramel. The caramel is maybe more pronounced by the fact that the beer tastes somewhat ílightí in the malt section, so the caramel flavour sort of is more obvious. I think of it as a pint of a bitter that has been lagered instead of top fermented. It is fairly average at that (there are nicer, more full bodied and flavourful milds) but at least it is something new for me. Interesting to see better examples of the style (nicer aroma, some hop character welcome).

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
bottle @ home. profumo quasi del tutto assente, solo poche note di malto tostato ed un lievissimo erbaceo da luppolo. colore marrone con riflessi ramati, limpida con schiuma beige, abbastanza fine poco persistente. gusto tostato/ torrefatto, sensazione lievemente abboccata di caramello. abbastanza amara. il tostato sovrasta un poí le altre componenti. non molto equilibrata. abbastanza armonica, ma profumi e gusti non sono molto fini...

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
330ml bottle, clear brown colour, large frothy mostly diminishing off-white head, some lacing. Medium malty aroma of grain and nuts, light floral hops, taste is slightly sweet at first turning into a small mildly bitter finish with a lightly astringent feel. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Pretty much a slightly tastier version of plain olí bulk lager.
