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

750 ml. bottle. Amber colour with a persistent head, lace and ring all over. Smell of honey, chocolate, caramel, ripened fruits and brandy. Medium to full body, it pass through your tongue very easily, but leaving an alcohol feeling. Taste is alcoholic, honeoy, fruits, caramel, flowers and some chocolate.
