yerffoeg (77) - Dinant, BELGIUM - JAN 8, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2018 Cannette reçue dans un pack découverte de Saveur Bière. Une couleur ambrée transparente, presque caramel. Des arômes de caramel où l'on perçoit assez bien le malt. Au niveau du goût, on découvre du caramel et une petite note grillée.

12/17/17: $13 Pint purchased by my brother at T Mobile arena for Las Vegas Knights vs. Florida Panthers game. Brown pour into plastic stadium cup, light head, barley and chocolate aroma. Mild taste similar to aroma, very light mouth feel, easy drinking. Overall OK offering.

Not a great ale, not like a typical brown ale. For an ale, it has odd bock or dunkel notes which I'm not a huge fan of. Not a great beer and I probably won't get it again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Amber-golden, fuldstændig klar, Udemærket off white tan foam Let maltet, lidt juleagtig, men meget meget mild. Let bitter, let sødme, og let krydret medium body, thin feel, average carbonation, let sødlig finish Watery scottish ale. Lad skotterne om det, USA!

Draft @ Charleston's. Crystal clear reddish amber with a dissapating off white head. Malt forward, fig, light hops touch with toffee and sweet caramel notes Crisp carbonation, slightly bitter finish. Not bad.

30-11-2017; can; at home (bought at Saveur Bière, as part of their November 2017 discovery box). The looks of the beer are fine. The beer has a nice color, that is something between golden and copper. The beer has a lovely bright glow. It is crystal clear. On top of the beer some nice almond coloured foam is formed. Foam retention is low though. The smell is fine. It isn't the worlds strongest smelling beer, nor is it to special. It is nice though. There are some sweet malts, with a touch of caramel in it. There are some sweet fruity touches to. I smell some plum and raisin, but both very sweet. There are some floral hop touches...that aren't to strong. Mainly malty. The taste is the same. It is mainly sweet and has a lot of sweet malts. The malts give a slight caramel touch and some sweet fruit touches. Hops give some floral touches, and some bitterness. In the end of the flavour some peaty smokiness is there, that gives a nice touch. It just gives the balance for the heavy sweetness. The palate of the beer is fine. Medium body, minimally sticky texture and medium high carbonation. The finish of the beer is avarage of length and quality. It contains just some sweet malts, some bitter hops and a caramel touch. All in all, a good beer, but not extremely good nor special. Way above average though.

UPDATED: AUG 16, 2017 Thick tan head but short lived. The body is amber, clear and bubbly. It smells sweet and spicy. It tastes sweet and smokey. It's really good easily one of the best beers I've had yet. Found at the AM PM near my job.
