Also at my 20K in Jan last year. Was fascinated by the drinkability of this one so got another bottle. Almost clear reddish - amber beer, good cream colour head. Airy palate, softish too. Mild minerally carbonation. Smooth malts, fluffy creamy sweetness. A little caramel. Whisper of vanilla. Light red wine berry fruits. Some strawberry. Trace of spice. Smooth finish. It’s not a shouty beer this, but there is something about it that makes it so very drinkable.
Bottle split at Kenny 20K, thanks to the man of the moment, 15/01/16.
Orange amber with a thin off white covering.
Nose is sweet malts, light berry notes, booze tones, airy malt, toffee.
Taste comprises light spice, booze, grain, light caramel, really not a lot going down.
Medium + bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with a booze tickle.
Underwhelming stuff ... just no depth to justfy the ABV. fonefan (53724) - VestJylland, DENMARK - MAR 24, 2016
