Appearance :Deep, clear amber coloroued ale with thick, quiet creamy head. Side enriched with neatly painted lace. >
Nose:Strong, spicy bitter hops, hint of wild mushroom with woody overtone all placed on amber malts.
Medium bodied, quiet smooth bodied. Frontal was spicy followed by raw twig that finally ended with grainy, rye like swing. At edge of plate you would find citric bitterness. Neat softer malty end. Perhaps this ale is not the most harmonious there is but its hop-grain set up was quiet pleasant. Solid bitter. Palate 3+
Bu sur place, en fut (20 oz). Rousse un peu foncée, moyen collet. Arome de malte d’orge crue, un peu fruité. Goût de malte amère, d’orge grillé et légèrement houblonné. Assez bon pour un bitter!
