Bouteille 355ml étiquetée sous le nom "Flying Monkeys Amber Ale" mais avec le logo pareil à la bouteille Robert Simpson Amber Ale. De couleur ambrée pâle et claire. Nez de grains de malt sucrés et légèrement rôtis, léger de houblon herbeux et aux notes florales avec des notes de caramel, de noix et de miel. Plutôt mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen ainsi qu’une texture légèrement aqueuse et avec de faibles notes crémeuses. Léger goût de grains de malt grillés avec quelques traces fruitées (agrumes) dès l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute rapidement un côté plus sucré des grains, rappelant le caramel avec des traces de biscuits puis en finale l’on retrouve une légère amertume asséchante de houblon à la fois floral et herbeux (gazon mouillé). Post-goût moyen-court et aux notes sèches, légèrement amer de houblon herbeux et floral avec quelques traces rôties.

Enjoyed with my better half at Pub Italia. From bottle, pours very minimal head and has a golden amber appearance. But for an amber ale, doesn’t really share its name. Has a rusty roasted malt aroma, with peppers and nutmeg. Flavours are roasted malts, Saaz hops, citrus, and spices are apparent. Hints of cinnamon and cloves. Slightly warming sensation and drying mouthfeel. Pretty good but prefer the brewery’s IPA output.

Tried it on tap at Montana’s after watching Guardian of the Galaxy vol.2. First Flying Monkeys I try, hopefully others will be better.

12fl oz bottle @Cimmeria, Oviedo. 15-04-2017.
BBD: not seen.
In short: metalic amber lager wannabe.
Did i like it: no way.
Pours little hazy amber with nice off white head. Moderate head retention, little lacing. DMS nose, caramel, malty, little fruity. Light to medium body, average carbonation, crispy texture. Taste is metalic, plain and straightforward, some malty, little bitterness. Lacks complexity, seems more like and industrial amber lager. Poor.

kaserov (741) - Oviedo, SPAIN - APR 14, 2017
Color dorado anaranjado, translúcido, con capa de espuma blanca de dos dedos de grosor (retención pobre). Carbonatación media tirando a mínima (dos o tres tubos de burbujas). Textura acuosa. Aroma a grano y caramelo. Sabor que sigue totalmente al aroma, sin matices interesantes. Final acuoso y regusto y postgusto inexistentes. Se acerca más a una Lager que a una Amber Ale, bajo mi punto de vista. Bebible pero flojita.

Solid Beverage. One off for me. Haven’t had too many products from this brewery.

355ml bottle from Systembolaget, Hornstull. Almost clear golden with a small white head, good lacing. Malty aroma, lots of bread, grains, burnt caramel and burnt sugar. Smooth sweet mouthfeel. The taste is malt-focused, bread, bread, bread and some biscuits. Sweet finish, almost no bitterness.
