75 cl bottle vintage 2012 (7,1%) @ Timo A. Bottle #2532, BBE 28.05.2014
Aroma has grassy hops and some malty tones. Flavour has quite aggressive grassy hops, some herbal tones and grainy malt. Foamy and creamy palate. Quite nothing to do with blond or golden ale, more like imperial pils. Plato was quite interesting (17,6).

Pours dark orange with a smooth white head. Aroma of bready maltiness, crisp notes, some caramel, alcohol and spices. Taste is smooth, malty and mildly grainy with some spicy notes, caramel and earthy smoked notes. Finish is bready, malty and mildly earthy with some spiciness. Quite strange.

Bottle. Pours hazy orange amber with airy but stable off-white head. Clear aroma of hops, malt and caramel with a subtle buttery note. Sweet flavour of caramel and malt with regular but not very pronounced hoppy notes. Sweet aftertaste. Decent but would be better if it wasn’t so sweet.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 2010 harvest. Bright red-orange amber, low lace. Acidic and earthy aroma. Starts acidic on the tongue, segueing into a citric and grassy hop note, crisp, light leafy, lactic again in the finish. Fruity, mandarin middle, earthy/salty, medium to light body, sparkly champagne mouthfeel. quick fruity finish. Interesting, not quite worth its sticker price though.
