Non vedo perché dovrei stare a soffermarmi molto su questo...cocktail! Peccato, l’unica disgrazia de Le Sous Bock.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap near Paris Nord. Strange red body with thin head. But nose is of malts, hops and corny. No fruit nose whatsoever. Taste also quite malty and quite nice. Not really committed to what it wants to be though.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap in Paris. A basic beer with light fruit taste, light malty aroma, no hops and an acid presence. Really this beer is not properly done, either it needs more fruit to be really a fruit beer or it needs more body and malt to hide the huge acidity and be a good amber beer.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
White head and a amber body. Aroma are too light for me, but taste ok. Maybe it was the end of the barrel while carbo was quiet flat

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Having never consumed patxaran, I am a little bit handcuffed with this rating, but here goes. It is an effervescent pink-accented amber colour. There’ s a hint of pink in the head as well. The footy, dusty aroma is both floral and fruity. Firm, malty palate with slight berryish note and light florals. Finishes with a creamy, sweet mouthfeel.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Sous-Bock. Lovely red-amber color with thick white head. Fresh fruity, almost lagered aroma with bright wild berry notes. Clean, creamy mouthfeel. Super smooth. Has some medicinal qualities but mellow. Berries linger on the tongue. Interesting beer.

Bottle at Académie De La Bière. Amber color with fluffy white head and chunks! Chunks are a plus. Fruits of all kinds and malt for aroma. Med. body with mild carbonation. Hint of sour. Apple, berry, caramel and nuts. Finishes towards dry. Didn’t get anise. Try this!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Draught at White Horse, Parson’s Green, London, 17 Apr 2009) Dark reddish amber colour with brief, white head. Fruity, malty nose with dark fruit, herbs and hints of plums. Fruity, malty taste with notes of crystal malts, plums and nuts. Medium body, low bitterness, fairly dry. A bit weird but defintely decent.
