Enniskillen (2061) - Bakersfield, California, USA - MAY 8, 2013
Amber with an off white head. Aroma is lightly yeasty, caramel malt, light nuttiness. Taste is earthy, peat, lightly malty, caramel. theatmosphere (50) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2012
The hint of caramel really gives this beer an edge over the Calvinus Blonde. Around the same quality level as the Calvinus Blanche, nice golden appearance. Easy to drink, medium body. Not too much carbonation (which is a problem with some Swiss beers I find). This is pretty decent stuff to drink when in Geneva, just not as good as the excellent Calvinus Noire.
