3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle 500ml (its appearence deserves separate excitation)
Note: I do not understand the sense of this style and I am afraid I underappreciate it, but I’ll try to have my rate fair.
Firstly, it is not my first nor second beer by Bernard to present extensive gushing, this time I was prepared and haven’t lost much:)
POURS dark ruby-brown (similar to coca-cola), beige head dessipates quickly. Large bubbles.
NOSE is malty, but not too much. Little hints of weathered hop. Cartboard.
MOUTH is malty, low and short bitterness (malty, not hopy), a little caramel.
PALATE: moderate carbonation, watery, drinkable. Low-bodied
OVERALL: Neither of the sensations is strong/remarkable. These are the properties of the style, however it’s not what I search for.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
En bouteille. Couleur brune rougeâtre. Arôme de malt torréfié, sucre d’orge. En bouche c’est trčs malté, crispy avec une fin de bouche étonnamment caféiné. Le niveau d’amertume est vraiment déconcertant.
