Enjoy by 01-29-15, 750 mL bottle

Look - Pours a clear golden honey with decent sized head. Less than average bubble distribution, good head retention, good clinging. 3.5 paws.

Smell - Light malt, a bit of steel and musty horse blanket. Slight nuances of honey and a faint hop aroma. 2 paws.

Taste - A honey sweet malt greets you up front, followed by a metallic minerality. An astringent hop bitterness is present throughout. The bitterness lingers on the tongue, along with the metallic taste, like the underside of a bottle cap. A distinct alcohol flavor is present as well. Slight bits of yeasty spiciness are detectable, but muddled by the metallic bitterness. 2 paws.

Feel - Crisp and effervescent, tingling the entire mouth. Goes down quite smooth. Not viscous at all. 3.5 paws.

Overall - It has been years since I have had this beer, and I remember liking it quite a bit. I now, however, feel that it is just not a good beer at all. As is the case with many beers with a number of years between samplings, I do not know if this is due to changes in quality of the actual beer, or just changes in my own palate. 2.75 paws.

Meow beer.

A: Golden body. Small diminishing off-white head.
S: A pongy, plasticy smell.
T: Very bready with lots of umami. An unpleasant bitter aftertaste but not too bad. Its fruity, syrupy and also vinous.
O: Not bad.

Beer #3 from France
Poured in small wine glass

A: thin head; clear, amber color; seems inert
S: thin aroma; malty, a bit of lager, much like a eurolager
T: sweet, strong malt and yeast presence; esters; a bit of banana and clove; not much hops; very good specimen for the genre; aggressive and complex
