3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Swing-top at U Medvídku. Aroma of hops and malts but mostly caramel...hops remind me of dishwater recently used for an icing-laden platter...but not soapy. Hazy chestnut/amber brown, does let the light through somewhat. Beige head. Some latent fruitiness in the back of that nose. As for taste, bitter and hoppy, mostly bitter. Light-bodied wih aspirations of earning a medium. Caramel. Strong bitter, flowery hoppiness. Interesting dry toasty bitterness. Not a huge fan, but this is interesting

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled at Dogbrick’s Eurostash tasting on 4.30.09. Cloudy amber pour with a medium beige head. Tart aroma with yeast, malt and metal. Crisp and sour flavor with a bit of fruit. Judging by the other ratings I’m guessing this shouldn’t have a sour flavor, but hell, it didn’t taste bad. They should change the name to "wild lager" on the bad bottles and charge five times as much for them.

On tap and bottled @ U Medvidku. Hazy amber colour, big white head. Aroma of butter, hops and malts. Flavour is the same, distinct bitterness, especially in the bottled sample. From tap, highly drinkable.

Bottle @ Dutch Ratebeer Session. The beer has a sourish aroma with pickles and manure. Hazy, copper coloured with an off-white lace. Taste is a bit sweet, sourish. Bit malt. Strange beer, probably infected.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
At the brewery restaurant, bottle. Poured a small slightly off white persistent head and a nice amber-red body. Sweetish buttery malty nose, almost perfumey. Very nice flowery-fruity(orange), slightly soapy malt halted abruptly by a sharp herbal hop flavour that goes into the aftertaste. Soft, remarkably pleasant and a great Vienna.

[Bottled. Courtesy of gnoff.]
Amber colour. Diacetyl nose with traces of honey. Caramelly backbone in flavour, little watery with honey here as well and a light roasty touch from dark malts. Butterscotch also detected. The finish is long. Good, yet light, bitterness.

1.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Brown flip-top bottle containing 33cl of beer, freshness date of 30th April 2009, drank 20th July 2009. Bought at the brew-pub it was made in purely to review on BA and now here.
Hope the beer stands up to being a little under-fresh.
It is nearly midnight and I’ve been in the garden all day grafting, my garden looks a picture and I’m thirsty, this is the beer I’ve choosen to quench my thirst! Slotted into the fridge early evening, so the review is of a cooled rather than cold Oldgott.
Poured in one, into my huge ’Judas’ tulip glass. The bottle opened with a resounding crack and poured a cloudy orange, dirty dull amber colour. On top of the body sat a full, well formed white foaming head. The head did fall away, but lacing and some foam was still there at the end.
Aroma is Belgian to my nose, a sweet and sour mix with yeast and spices trying to grab your nasal hairs.
Sour, like a lambic, is it off or should it taste like this? I think the vinegar fly might have got in my bottle.
Only 5.2%ABV, but the sourness masks even that lowly strenght, strange, wierd and not very friendly in my opinion.
Not what I was expecting, reasons? Maybe the date, maybe the bottle is off, maybe not cold enough, maybe I should have poured it more sedately, but this beer was a let down (and not cheap, even at its brewpub).
