Bottle shared by Eugene/Gotmos. Nice roasty lager aroma, thin but clean. A bit of a nice malt in there, well balanced. Not a bad brew at all.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not much head as it pours pretty still. there’s some sourness on top of the really tasty toast flavor. Sweet caramel and maltiness are the real stars here. Great? No. Not bad either though just a tad on the sweet side.

Bottle: Thanks gotmos! Pours brown with a bubbly off white ring for head. Decent roasted malt nose. Thin bodied, with slight metallic notes. Has a hint of roast, and is better than I expected.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - much thanks to KerenMK for the new country tick! Pours clear dark brown to black with a ruby tint, medium off-white head that slowly disspates with nice lacing. Aroma is malty with notes of roasted malt, caramel, grass, and perhaps a bit of metal. Flavor is the same, initially smoky and a bit salty, although the smokyness fades with time. Medium sweet with a light grassy/metallic bitterness. Medium body. Interesting and certainly drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Thanks to Michael Rosenow who brought this home. Thin head over a cola-brown body. Slightly roasty malt smell with some brown sugar backing. The taste is fruity more than roasty, befitting an ale. Also some cider to the palate. Michael said he tastes coriander, but I don’t get much spice to it. A bit of tartness toward the end. Turns out nice.

Dark reddish brown colour, diminishing beige head. Malty aroma, caramel, light coffee. Sweet malty flavour, sweet caramel. Bit thin body. Sweet caramel finish. Not bad, bit on the sweet side for me, but not bad at all.
