poech73 (543) - Braine-Le-Comte, BELGIUM - APR 8, 2018
From Aushopping Louvroil :: Ambrée aromatisée au bois de Cèdre >> Corps cuivrée surmonté d'un col écru évanescent. Nez complexe malté aux saveurs épicées d'un Noël anglais avec ses relents de fruits confits et macérés truffant un beau Bodding. Attaque rôtie à la rondeur sablée accompagnée de saveurs herbacées médicinales. La texture en bouche est visqueuse amère sur des notes d'herbes citronnées et fort ronde : carrément caramélisée qui rappelle le candy trop cuit. Heureusement la belle amertume couplée aux saveurs complexes de fût de cèdre rééquilibrent bien le maltage un peu pesant et offre une finale trainante à la fois mi-sèche mi ronde avec une petite pointe biscuitée et astringente.

UPDATED: MAR 18, 2018 330 ml bottle at Bonito, Göteborg. Clear amber with white head. Light malt, fruit, citrus and grass. Semi sweet with medium bitterness and medium carbonation.

Nothing special. Just a lager beer with a nice name. Enjoyable and well brewed but regular in other sorts.

Calisky (3325) - ALSACE, FRANCE - FEB 28, 2018
Couleur ambrée, très légère mousse. Nez un peu caramélisé. Gout caramélisé avec fruité-agrumes, malté, alcool note acidulée et boisée. Pas une ipa, classique

ccubaka (52) - LATVIA - FEB 22, 2018
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2018 Have to say it surprised me a little bit. Very nice dark amber color, pleasant scent of hops and just a bit of fruit. With the first sip it also leaves honey in nose and tongue. Oh, it also has a bitter aftertaste,just a bit. Overall very nice.

rand (1920) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 15, 2018
Bottle 33 cl / Hyperboissons - Doubs (F). Muddy dark amber with numerous floats and short cream and fleeting head. Aromas of malt, red berries, floral and citrusy hop, wood and caramel-toffee. The taste is bittersweet, spiced by wood of cedar. It has tones of bitter orange marmalade, spices, bread, tea and hazelnut. Pretty bitter of citrus and earth coated by fruity of apple and Sherry Amontillado. Superb.

jjsint (3786) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2017
Bottle from Best One, Bedford. Ruddy brown, hazy with very little head. Light grainy aroma with bready, caramel and papaya. The taste is... lovely, but really odd. Sweet at first with lychee and toffee flavours, giving way to a wave of intense bitterness for the finish. Lingering astringency in the aftertaste with shadows of umami grain. Highly carbonated. It's interesting. I disliked it at first, then grew to enjoy it. Worth trying but may not appeal to everyone.

Patersoi (198) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 1, 2017
Pours gold/Amber with fast disappearing head. Aroma somehow smells Japanese. Flavour is malty but bitter. Soft mouth feel. Long hoppy bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

15/IX/17 - 33cl bottle from Bierhalle Deconinck (Vichte) @ home - BB: V/2017 (oops) (2017-1496) Thanks to Erwin for sharing the bottle!

Clear amber to red orange beer, bit irregular creamy solid yellowish head, pretty stable, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: very malty, sweet, raisins, lots of caramel, ripe banana. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: pretty bitter, yeasty, raisins, hoppy touch, some caramel, soft roast. Aftertaste: grains, pretty hoppy and bitter, some dried fruits, sugary touch. Decent, not super...
