Palme (4856) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 1, 2012
0.33l bottle @ The George and Dragon, Barcelona. This is a clear deep amber-brown one with a massive and everlasting fluffy-dense off-white head. On the aroma I get soft brett-tones at first, some acidity and sour red currants. Hmm.. I’m not sure this is how it is supposed to smell? Let’s wait a while and let the massive head settle down. Actually the smell is really nice - in a unintended way (I beleive, unless it’s a sour brown ale). The taste however is not sour at all. That’s actually quite a surprise! It’s soft malty and yeasty, some wheat-like tones here and it has a dark malty and light chocolaty finish. Really enjoyable and quite different! 11.08.2012 TBone (18547) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 10, 2012
Bottled 33cl (George And Dragon, BB 12/2012)thebeertourist (5188) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 1, 2012
Dark brown color, steady creamy beige head. Aroma is at first tart and has vegetables and some caramel, later more chocolaty and caramelly. Medium-bodied, lots of carbonation. Flavor is a bit same, not so tart more caramelly with some chocolate or cocoa, but also yeast and vegetables. Perhaps better from tap. Now average at the best.
On tap at George and Dragon, Barcelona. Brown colour, beige head. Chocolate and fruit aroma followed by dry chocolatey flavours. Good fruit, too. Very nice. GBZ59 (1217) - BARCELONA (Catalonia), SPAIN - FEB 7, 2012
