3.4
Moravius (1470) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUL 15, 2016
Vom Faß im GLB # 45, Peking. - Schönes Kupferrotbraun, trüb, sparsamer Schaum. - In der Nase mildes Toastmalz, vage Kräuter, vielleicht Zimt. - Antrunk leicht bitter und doch karamelmalzsüß mit Toast-Noten und erdig-krautigem Hopfen. Der namengebende (vietnamesische) Zimt äußert sich in einer eigenartigen süßlich-würzigen Note, die wenig Ähnlichkeit mit dem mir bekannten Gewürz hat. Honig und Kandis im Malz. Im Hintergrund zurückhaltender englischer Hopfen, der zum Ende hin in deutliche Bittere mit Orangenschale und Erde übergeht. Trockener Abgang mit Anklängen an Pfirsich Gut krautig-bitterer Nachtrunk. - Anfangs nicht ganz überzeugende Mischung bekannter und fremder Aromen, die aber mit jedem Schluck gewinnt. (Verkostung: 13.7.2016.)

Slipstream (2710) - USA - JUN 8, 2016
Draft at GL. A little cinnamon enlivens this amber ale, some pleasant acidity also. Made with all Chinese ingredients. Good.

3.5
Bacterial (3060) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - APR 21, 2015
On draft at the original brewery. Copper pour, clear, with a slight white head. Some spice. Nice hop character in the nose and taste. Good balance of bitterness.
