"English Halcyon malts are used together with lager malts. Golding hops provide the bitterness and aroma. The result is a highly distinctive light, golden ale similar in character to a full bodied Czech lager."

I am a firm lover of brown ales and this one I felt was good in flavor but lacked in other areas. When first pouring this beer the head (at least with this particular bottle) was none existent. It was very small too not really there at all and was fully diminishing. It has a very bold brown color to the beer and tiny but not as lively as I would like to see with its bubbles and fizz. The bubbles just stayed more at the bottom of the glass. The aroma was nice but not long lasting. It had a heavy malt aroma with that grainy sense to it. It in a way almost smelled a bit like wine in a way. When tasting it that malty aroma delivers with a heavy malt flavor with a light bitterness. That bitterness lasts and is present at the end the drink. A hint of smokiness was also detected in the beer. The beer on the palate had a light body and a dry texture. The carbonation was light and with a surprisingly chalky finish. I did like the flavor of this beer, but the aroma, appearance, and palate was sacrificed for it.

bartlebier (2760) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - AUG 16, 2015
500ml medicine bottle bb04/2016, St. Peters sampler, ta D&M. Weighty grain-golden pour. Heavily fragrant of HQ grains, honey malts, honeypop cereal, hay - mostly grainy, little Styrian Golding grass spice. Mouthfeel indeed a bit like a wet sawdost Bohemian lager, without the Saaz bite. Grain accompaniment notes of almind and vanilla in both aroma and flavour, dessert ike. Hence, Slightly less-than-refreshing, with hops soaked up by seedcake biscuit malts.

500ml bottle. 21-06-2015.
BBD: 24-09-2015.
In short: bready golden ale.
Pours quite clear dark golden with nice white head. Short head retention, poor lacing. Malty, roasty, bready nose. Light body, soft carbonation, oily texture. Taste is some sweet, roasty, biscuits, some nuts. Quite smooth and some hidden complexity. Enjoyable.

jamaty (1433) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 8, 2015
Ambar clara, turbia. Escasa espuma. Aroma escaso, especiado. Inicialmente seca y amarga, evolucionando hacia un mayor dulzor, de miel, y un ligero recuerdo frutal.
