FatPhil (13867) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 23, 2016
500ml bottle (Ales by Mail)
Rich amber, small tight beige head. Nice resiny aroma, plenty of esters, and loads of caramelly malts. Fullish sweetish palate, pleasant carbonation sometimes a little high. Quirky in the mouth, not quite what I expected from the aroma. Plenty of caramel, some resiny herbal bitterness, later some earthier aspects and pencil shavings. Finish has a low throb of bitterness. Decent strong ale, but I’d like the carbonation a bit lower.

Yellow-cream head over hazy amber beer with a mossy sheen. Rainwater, toffee, caramel, restsugars suggested in the nose. Bitter-vegetable, underlying caramel. Light to medium bodied, feels quite carbonated. Average.

500 ml bottle from Ales By Mail. Pours clear deep red/amber with a big creamy off-white head, very good looking. Weak sweet fruity aroma, some roasted malts and a good dash of liquorice. Good liquorice taste, moderate dry, high carbonated, long dry liquorice finish, very good one.

Bottle. Dark amber reddish beer with a great frothy head. The aroma is well hopped with a touch of roastedness. The flavour is extremely well hopped with bags of bitterness and dryness, some maltiness and roastedness as well . Overall a very nice pale ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
