3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from lcbo, pours a big bubble head. Has real old school style with punchy yeast and a herbal almost medicinal dryness. Somewhere a pale cookie malt trying to poke through. Seems like a beer I would need many more of to understand?

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a clear deep amber colour with one finger of lasting head. Soapy lacing clinging to the side of the glass. On the nose I get some fruity aromas like citrus and grapes. Also bread and a whiff of caramel is present. Taste has a hoppy backbone with notes of plain crackers, grass, and black peppers which leads to a dry and spicy finish. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. It’s not my cup of tea...Too dry and spicy for a beer with low alcohol content.

Just an amazing Altbier.All others are judged by it’s standard.
On tap, the fruity Ale Yeast esters are more dominant.Other than that it’s the same.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home. From Wine Rack, West Byfleet. Sweet caramel and grass aroma. Dark Amber. Fluffy off-white head. Light sweetness through to a tangy bitterness that continues in to the long finish. Malt and citrus with a honey undercurrent. Light bodied. Impactful carbonation with a softness to the body. A dry element combines with the carbonation on the tongue. Decent if overly carbonated.
