hki. Reddish amber, clear. Bit murky old papery malts on nose, autumny leafes, composty, märzeny nose. MEd bodied, smooth, lagery charactery, clean, autumny leafy flavour. Kinda like the flavour after all. The aroma wasn’t that nice, felt old, bit oxidated.Flavours better.
Draught @ Brewdog Helsinki.
Poured mahogany color with a thin white head.
Grainy malty, nutty aroma.
Bready malty, grainy flavors. Good drinkability. Crisp. Light.
KyotoLefty (10197) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 6, 2016
Bottle. Malty nose, caramel, chocolate, toasty and almost roasty. Close to a toasty Vienna. Pretty brown with orange and a low, fine head. Clear. Toasty flavor with some chewy caramel. Strangely toasty. Definitely unique for the style but tasty and very well made. Not traditional. MacNJ (80) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 30, 2016
This is my favorite fest beer, and if you are Jonesing it, the breweries often have it on tap year round. The nose has a hint of caramel and baked bread; the appearance is a nice, thin white head and a light brown hue. Poured nicely from a growler (I think it was only $8). The refreshing taste is very malty with a balanced bite on the end. Perfect brew for the start of fall. Cheers!
