The Brewers Project
Brewed with the finest hops, Irish barley, and a specially selected amber malt
A beautifully balanced ale with a rich golden hue. The subtle biscuit flavours of the malted barley perfectly complement the pleasing bitterness and delicate, fruity hop aroma, giving way to a refreshingly crisp finish.

KoNrRiI (1656) - Århus, DENMARK - DEC 14, 2017

0.5 bottle @ Davies Court
Slightly hazy amber with a cream-colored head. A delicate aroma of malts and some fruits. Taste is sweet, doughy, malty, simple. Light, thin, soft. Finish introduces some bitterness. Overall, really simple and really unimpressive.

superspak (6090) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - OCT 30, 2017
330 ml bottle into pint glass, bottled on 10/6/2016. Pours slightly hazy deep orange/copper/amber color with a 1-2 finger dense cream colored head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of honey, brown sugar, bread dough, toasted biscuit, and nuttiness; with lighter notes of caramel, plum, apricot, apple, herbal, wood, grass, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of bready malt and light-moderate earthy hop/fruity yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of honey, brown sugar, bread dough, toasted biscuit, and nuttiness; with lighter notes of caramel, plum, apricot, apple, herbal, wood, grass, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Very mild herbal, woody, grassy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of honey, brown sugar, bread dough, toasted biscuit, nuttiness, light caramel/fruit, herbal, wood, grass, and yeast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice robustness and balance of bready malt and light-moderate earthy hop/fruity yeast flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Slightly increasing dryness from bitterness. Fairly clean finishing. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready/grainy, and slightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.5%. Overall this is a good standard English pale ale. All around good robustness and balance of bready malt and light-moderate earthy hop/fruity yeast flavors; very smooth, clean, and refreshing to drink with the mildly bitter finish. Very flavorful for the low ABV. Clean bready English malt flavors; with restrained hop and yeast presence. Fits the English pale ale style perfectly fine, but comes off underwhelming. Slight touch of diacetyl noticed after I finished the glass, but well within style limits. A nicely enjoyable offering.
