My experience with Malta has been of the Goya non alcoholic variety. This is the original form that in German is called Malzbier. It seems fermentation is stopped at 2 percent producing "Young beer".

A huge brown head with a thick consistency and lots of retention. tons of lace all the way down. Beer is almost black with active carbonation and a clear but opaque hue. Smell is sweet with carmel and burnt sugar. Some floral hop bitterness knifes through. Taste is much like an imperial milk stout with a sweet coffee and toffee malt body, lactic sugariness and firm bitterness with touch of grapefruit skin. Sweet dinner rolls and coffee with caramel syrup. Feel is thickish with a syrupy coating of the tongue and good carbonation to break it up. Quite smooth. Very drinkable as my glass was empty way too fast. Delicious and the very low alcohol means it I can kill a several without worry. A great change up and a good mild beer.

After a long hard morning at the Floris pool in Curacao, I felt like a mid afternoon lunch of ham sandwich and this new found ale can hit the spot. And it works to perfection, even if sweet and raw tasting.

The malty-rich beer starts creamy and rich to the eye. Dark brown in color, the beer releases its sandy brown head and retains well with minimal lace.

Aromas of bock and stout register with the olfactories with the savory malt scent of nuts, toast, and light savory soy sauce. Other more robust roasty notes rise in the form of coffee and cocoa and give a stronger and more confident stride to the beer's scent.

Deliciously sweet with the taste of sorghum, lightly buttered toast, and peanut brittle- the maltier sweet taste of buckwheat invites the complementary taste of nutty coffee, light chocolate, and meaty richness. All work reasonably well while reigning in some subtle fruit prune notes.

Full bodied, or at least mostly so. The beer achieves much of its richness from the heavy textures of unresolved sugars. The semi-sweet taste translated directly to mouthfeel and satisfies the sweet tooth, thus capturing a long sweet aftertaste to close the beer.

The beer is a wonderful complement to those pepper encrusted slices of ham on the sandwich, but the unsupported malt sweetness makes this beer a one-and-done choice for me.
