pintbypint (3584) - Edmonton, Alberta, - JAN 15, 2013
750ml green bottle with a cap. Amber pour, hazy. Good foamy thick head at first pour, but dies down to a ring. Nose has slight farmhouse note, but moreso has a lemony citrus hop. Taste has brown bread like malts, touch of caramel. Finishes quite dry, hint of citrus hop that fades quickly. Lots of carboantion, and medium bodied, its dryness and carboantion akek it very drinkable and refreshing.

On tap at York River Landing. Delicious and simple. This showcases the malt profile -- some bread, cereal, and toast, as well as a nice light caramel sweetness -- with a slightly peppery yeast kick. Good and easy drinking.

24/IX/16 - on tap @ Borefts Bier Festival - BB: n/a (2016-1181) Thanks to the Belgian ratebeer crew for sharing today’s beers!

Clear amber beer, creamy off-white head, little stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: very malty, some caramel. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: bitter, some overripe fruits, unpleasant bitterness, chemical touch. Aftertaste: bit sourish, dirty bitterness, don’t like.

Hopverdju (1199) - BELGIUM - NOV 17, 2016
Donker amberkleurig bier met beige schuim. Geur: moutzoetig, karamel. Smaak: licht zoet, mout, kandij. Lichte koolzuurprikkel. Smaakt eigenlijk als een zoeter tafelbier.

bartlebier (3946) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - OCT 7, 2016
Tap I believe at Borefts 2016 - Dag 1. Bref: dry autumn leaf caramels and dried stonefruit frame a spicy sessioner between bière de garde, maltier saison and toasty English bitter. Earthy aromas and something like curry or curcuma abound in malt, hop and yeast profile. Will revisit in a saison tasting.

Mortlach (2335) - Rome, ITALY - APR 26, 2016
330ml bottle bought @Johnny’s Off License (Rome). Pours amber with a medium off-white head. Aroma is malty, caramel, brown sugar, light roasted notes and ripe fruit. Flavour is unbalanced, very sweet and malty. Medium body, light carbonation. Ok.

ZodiacM (1140) - NETHERLANDS - APR 10, 2016
Uit de fles geschonken. Bruin troebel bier. Aroma van mout en gist. Smaak van gebrande mout, caramel, licht bitter, beetje waterig. Niets bijzonders dus.
