MichaelAwesome (3023) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - APR 9, 2014
Ein feines Brown ale mit einer wirklich keksigen Seele, die mit etwas Schokolade und ein wenig Zucker geppept wird. Im Abschluss natürlich noch etwas Malz und eine angenehme Süße.

Handpumped @ Craft Beer Co. Clapham (Greater London) during Craft#100. Brown with a medium creamy beige head and good lacing. Aroma is mild, with nutty notes and light roasted malt. Taste is also mild and very similar to the aroma. Medium body. Low/moderate carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel. Mild Brown Ale, but still tasty. Well balanced and easily drinkable.

33cl bottle. bottled on 03.12.13. Pours dark brown with a lacing, offwhite head. Looks great. Aroma has nicely roasted malt, cocoa, oatmeal and chocolate notes. Flavor has milk chocolate, roasted malt, some lactose sweetness and hint of coffee in the long finish. Feels quite thin. Easy to drink and quite tasty though.

Bottle from a trade with beersiveknown - thank you so much, Steve! The beer pours out in a beautiful deep dark brown colour with steady creamy head and smooth body. Aroma of roast, woods and barley. Taste of roasted barley, cookies, cake, malt, chocolate, coffee and tirf. Characterful and intense finish. Highly quaffable, enjoyed it a lot.
