Idiosynkrasie (6864) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - AUG 24, 2016
330ml bottle. Cloudy, reddish, dark amber colour with small, creamy, half-way lasting, well lacing, beige head. Sweet-ish, caramel malty aroma, toffee notes, hints of mandarine and orange. Taste is dry, papery, oaky, minimally tart and bitter, hints of marmalade, orange zest, rather unseizable caramel malty background with cautious touch of toffee and nuts. Relatively light, well hidden alcohol. A tad loveless for an Anniversary Ale - no regret about limited availability.

Bottle from Snape Maltings. Sweetish dry with a boozy bite. Little hop, stewed boozy vine fruits. A little rough around the edges but very drinkable.
