330ml bottle. Light red/amber color with almost no foam. Malty taste with very little hoppy bitternes. Light to medium bodied. Nice carbonation.

bartlebier (3815) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - APR 2, 2017
330ml bbOCT2017, BLsampler. - Bref: the stainless steel third runnings of gently caramel/maple syrup-drizzled toast, made for unquestioning pub sessioning. Some sulphurous barleypaste farting through the twiggy caramels. Alluring copper-auburnginger in its pint on draught. Slight residual slickness. E poi niente.

Botella de 33cl. Escaso aroma, levadura, malta. Ligeramente amarga, poco cuerpo. Final amargo, no demasiado persistente, Se puede beber, sin más.

Hard to believe I never rated this, well, nothing like the right time. Poured into an English pint glass, the appearance was a ruby red color with a sly transparency about it. Finger’s worth of white foamy head that dissipated at a subtle pace. Stringy lace. The aroma combines toast, nuts, caramel/toffee malts and a delicate sweet cream. Some grassy hops underneath. The flavor leans towards the sweet side through the toast, malts and nuts. Hops barely play any part in this department. Nice smooth sweet aftertaste flowing into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Good carbonation. ABV felt right. Overall, I like this one as an Irish red ale, not sure why it doesn’t get better marks, but then again, I’m guessing no one else is rating to style. Oh well, I’ll drink more of this preferably this time of year.

Rozemalt (16) - Groningen, NETHERLANDS - FEB 19, 2017
Bottle 33 cl, ruikt naar deeg, mooi koperkleurig, doet qua smaak niet heel veel, licht bittere nasmaak, maar vervliegt snel.

MAGICuenca91 (81) - Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, SPAIN - FEB 16, 2017
Buena cerveza. Un aroma intenso y agradable, una apariencia de color ámbar oscuro con una corona de espuma de un color beige. En cuanto a su sabor, entra con mucha facilidad y tiene un toque de dulzor que recuerda al caramelo aunque no posee demasiado cuerpo. Para finalizar su paladar es algo flojo, dado que se esfuma con rapidez y no aporta casi nada. En definitiva una cerveza que anda a caballo entre ser buena y correcta.
