guzgorog (836) - FRANCE - MAY 24, 2017
Robe ambre/rousse, mousse blanche de belle tenue. Nez malt caramel, houblons herbeux et fruits (abricot, pche, prune). Bouche un peu lgre : le caramel et les aromes fruits se retrouvent lgrement, manque de longueur et de corps, alcool faiblard (4.1%). Bire agrable mais manque cruellement de "patate", reste donc une bire de soif...

Bottle from the Republique Monoprix. Pours dark amber with a slight white head. Hop aromas seem mild and fruity. Med body. Unfortunately it does seem to be an amber. More hops than many, but not enough to hide the amber yuckiness. Pretty flavorful for 4%, and the hops are flavorful, but it just wont work for me. Ambers. Frequently bleh. Get the ABV to 8 or 9, hop it to unbelievable levels, and usually good for me. This is not very tasty. Id guesstimate half the beers Ive rated are tastier. Im trying so hard to really like this. Sigh.

Bottle at bierfestival Groningen (masterclass). Nice fruity red amber ale, refreshening with lots of taste (or maybe I was thirsty after starting the mc because it took a while before the bottles were uncorked).

radassace (264) - SCOTLAND - MAY 5, 2017
330ml bottle. Pours a chestnut red. Nose of rye bread and caramel. Light body, taste is rye brown bread and caramel with a bit of toast Ines. Bit of bitterness on the backend. Nice!

bartlebier (3934) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAY 3, 2017
33cl bb02/2018, Waitrose Hull April 2017. - Translucent reddish amber. Faint aroma of sweet red berries (ribes), diluted pink grapefruit lemonade with a shot of caramel almond milk. Refined, as in processed, toasted malts slick as supermarket chocolate milk, with a moderate mixed dose of English wayside hop taste, thin breakfast tea, more than thin piney Yakima resins. Pleasant enough, if obviously middle-of-the-road from the recipe up.

Lotto 170411, best before 10/02/18, aperta il 29 aprile 2017. Rossa limpida tendente al caramello con riflessi dorati, schiuma beige chiara non molto persistente. Aroma di uva spina, nocciola, leggero rabarbaro, citrica. Al palato attacca con uva spina e caramello, intermezzo citrico, finale con scorza di pompelmo, erbaceo pungente preceduto da pane tostato, nocciola tostata ed una leggerissima nota di cacao. Corpo leggero, mediamente carbonata.

Belle ambre translucide, avec de beaux reflets cuivrs sombres et une mousse ivoire avec une tenue respectable. Nez qui sarticule principalement sur les houblons, complexes, et les armes dagrumes non moins riches ! Trs belles notes florales et vgtales (foin, paille, luzerne, herbe frachement coupe, champ de bl sous le soleil, pissenlit, illet, bergamote, jasmin, rose...) et de fruits (citron, litchi, pamplemousse, orange sanguine, kiwi...). Les notes maltes ne sont pas en reste avec ce ct crales chaudes et pain frais qui sassocient merveille avec les notes houblonnes. Cest dlicat, complexe et trs quilibr. En bouche, la premire gorge rvle dimposants armes et saveurs de pamplemousse qui dominent nettement le reste. La carbonatation est bonne, la texture est douce mais manque cruellement de corps, lalcool est mince (4.1% seulement), lamertume est assez sage avec une attaque au dmarrage et une baisse de rgime qui ne redmarre jamais. Cest une bire vraiment rafrachissante par contre grce ses armes et saveurs dagrumes, de vgtaux et de fleurs. On peine aussi retrouver les levures... La longueur est comme le corps : mince. Il manque vraiment quelque chose pour crer de larrondi au palet. En conclusion, de merveilleux armes au nez mais une texture et un palet qui ne suivent pas du tout. Dommage... Bouteille 33cl, Boissons du Monde, Saint-Egrve.

DijkBier (347) - AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS - MAR 9, 2017
On draught in Zindering Utrecht. Clear reddish brown with light tan head. Soft aroma, but also served too chilly to fully explore itself. Light hoppy, fresh fruity,not quite specific Taste is light bitter and light sweet, slightly watery. Rather soft carbonation and soft bodied. Not a very interesting brew, but a fresh and light, low ABV mid-dark ale.
