3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled: Fresh malty aroma with sweetness and smoked malt. Creamy, off-white head. No carbonation, dark orange to amber color. Velvety texture. Malty flavor with light sweetness, roasted malt and smoky components. Fresh and pithy. Bitter and astringent finish. Quite nice but all in all a bit watery.

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).

Draught @ the brewery. Fresh malt and hop aromas. Distinct smells of brewing. Sweet maltiness but balanced with bittersweet hops. Feels very fresh and not quite 100% brewed out but that is part of its charm.

Draught at U Medvidku. Hazy brown with a big beige head. Sweet toffee aroma. Sweet, toasty, toffee, and caramel flavor. Medium body with low carbonation. Very pleasant overall, but The brewpub kinda sucked.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bernstein, leicht trüb und mit Schlagsahne Schaum. Ein Malzaroma nach Karamell, Fudge und Toffee ist vernehmbar. Der Geschmack ist leider säuerlich buttrig mit wässrigen Passagen, die der gute Hopfen gegen Ende auch nicht mehr retten kann. Die Fehlaromen im Geschmack sind inakzeptabel, kommen aber wohl öfter vor!

[on tap at brewpub]
Foggy golden amber with a huge tawy topping. Fresh Saaz mixed with caramel malt that almost seemed ale-like. Excellent hops flavour and bitterness balanced well with some citrusy notes and sweet pilsner malt. Unique caramel flavour for the style. Just a touch of sulfur. Hops lingers a bit, but it’s nice; moderate carbonation and medium body. I really enjoyed this beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap U Medvidku. Pale amber gold pour with rocky white foam. Intense caramel aroma, yeasty, fresh out of the oven pie crust, rather aromatic. Taste is rather caramel forward, good toast notes, ever so slight acidity. The palate is sick, very silky and smooth, perfectly drinkable. Good stuff.
