500ml botte (Angleterre, Helsinki)
Metallic aroma - copper. Some malts too. ich orange, large off-white head. Pleasant sweet malty taste. Sweet caramelly body, smooht, crisp carbonation. Finish starts caramelly, then hits hazelnut and walnut. Hint of something mushroomy too. Very easy drinker, but a bit sweet maybe. Nice winter beer, I guess.

Red/brown with a small white head. Aromas are sweet malty and doughy with hints of fruit. Flavours are sweet and malty with a roast character, bready dough and some smokiness coming through. Has rich winter fruit, quite Xmassy. Quite light on the finish but all up to that point is very good.

Bottle from State Line. Pours hazy deep copper with 2-finger off-white head. Aroma of heavy Wheaties dipped in almond, with some toffee and mild spicy hop notes. The palate was medium heft, with flavors of grainy malty Wheaties, some caramelly toffee-like hints, and mild fruit and hop notes. Gets a bit more tart and hoppy as it warms.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Many thanks to Finn for a 500ml bottle, 5.4 % abv, of this one. Beautiful appearance with a decent, almost white coloured body fading slowly on top of a crystal clear, golden brown coloured body. Lace sheet to the glassware. Smooth aroma of caramel malts, herbs and grain. Malty flavour containing caramel, nuts, earth, herbs and almond. Dry malty finish. A warming, malt-accented beer that fits the season (Tromsø, 04.01.2013).
