3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Brewed at The Phoenix Ale Brewery. My first bottle exploded, so got another and fridged it immediately. Still has quite a poof on opening. Monster off-white foamy head which relaxes to a very hazy, somewhat dirty gold. Aroma on deep inhale actually suggests white chocolate. Med body or so. Quite carbonated. Flavor is essentially chocolate - and it’s not the dark thing. Not cocoa. But apparently cocoa butter is considered to be chocolate. Interesting stuff.

Different for sure, I think stone is doing something like this, golden pour chocolate aroma, may be I haven’t got the connection. Couldn’t drink more than 8 oz...may be for someone else who has a more in tuned palate for this style.

draft, this is weird. Chocolate flavors in a pale ale that was light. Interesting for sure.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Un liquide doré massivement carbonaté qui a la texture d’un soda et le profil gustatif est hyper vanillé.. C’est réussi dans la mesure où l’objectif est de reproduire le crème soda. Je m’en serais passé.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Hazy golden pour with white head. Nose is chocolate and fruity yeast. Sweet throughout, watery body. Sticky-sweet finish
Overall: weird. It would take a serious master to make this palatable. As is it was not the best.

Bottle to pint glass
White chocolate, orange, malt, corn(?). Hazy amber, but that’s after the head settled. Initially this was all head. Truthfully, it was completely head when poured. Taste is orange, and something akin to nutmeg, but not as strong and then a touch of chocolate.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This was NOT bad at all. It reminded me a lot of a paler version of Brasserie Bourganel Biere au Nougat. Clean, caramel/chocolate notes, restrained sweetness, and a fairly dry finish. It was enjoyable in small doses.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pour on tap, slightly hazy golden pour with white head, aroma brought notes of bread, chocolate, coffee notes with an acidic, tart fruit note in there with a hint of grainy notes with a slight vanilla. Taste was a mix of vanilla, coffee, chocolate, slight lemon, hints of earth, slight grain, touch of yeast, finishing slightly sweet.

Unclear pale yellow with a quickly dissipating bubbly head. Eyes deceive the nose. Does not smell like it looks. Theres some grain and ’pale lager’ aroma beneath apparent chocolate. Chocolate milk. Vanilla. Flavor follows, which is unexpected. Too crisp and too much prickly carbonation. Bigger light body. Even if its all on purpose, this is an odd confusing experience.
