COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This one is different than the Bieropholie version as it has a different yeast and hops. It has also some difference through the fermentation process. The malts and the honey are not exactly the same. And, of course, this one has less alcohol. They have the same type of aromas, but some esters are really not the same.

Probably my favorite Scotch Ale so far. As soon as you open the bottle, you get the nice and sweet aromas of honey, caramel and a light scent of maple syrup. The color is of an opaque dark brown, lightly syrupy. Its very rond to the palate, even if the alcohol is strong. The taste is delicious. A mix of salted caramel, nuts, maple syrup and a nice touch of honey. The MacKroken Flower is a bit heavy, but its very enjoyable when the weather is cold. I highly recommend it. Enjoy

Bire en bouteille de 500ml de style cossaise au miel 10.8%. Cette bire opaque dun rouge fonce na pas vraiment de col mousseux. Au nez on peu sentir les fruits confis (prunes et raisins) ainsi quun malt caramel. On peut dj percevoir que la bire va tre sucr. En bouche le caramel et le miel sucr prennent le dessus. Larrire got ne demeure pas trs longtemps en bouche. Jai ador cette bire que jai dgust dans verre ballon une temprature de 10 degr environ. Je recommande cette bire.
