Zarrach76 (309) - Grenoble, FRANCE - AUG 26, 2017
Belle couleur rouge/pourpre avec des reflets cuivrés, transparente, et une belle mousse dense homogène beige. Nez classique sur le caramel, le pain chaud, un peu de pruneau, un houblonnage léger, un peu de fruits rouges (cerise, mûre et fraise), de la groseille, de la gelée de coin... Simple, efficace ! Bouche souple, corps léger sans trop être sur l’eau, alcool au niveau de ses 5.8% et qui relève bien les notes maltées et les sucres résiduels, amertume tout aussi légère mais efficace sur la longueur avec une petite astringence, levures très nettes en rétro-olfaction avec quelques notes de bois et de résine. Une petite note métallique traine à la marge, mais sans que ce ne soit trop prononcé. Sur le final s’exprime de belles notes de noix fraiche fort agréables. Un breuvage assez simple mais homogène et bien structuré dans un style brassicole (les Irish Ale) plutôt sage à ceci près que le houblonnage est à l’Américaine. Sympathique sans casser des barres... Bouteille 36cl (12fl.oz), V&B Grenoble.

Medium body malt profile, low on the hops. Decent beer, quite simple, would be great with more complexity. Karl Strauss SD.
