Swan Lake Miel Blanc Aroma and Taste

Swan Lake Miel Blanc poured out a golden amber colour with a small amount of frothy white head on tap, which faded fast. It had a strong nutty, biscuit like aroma. Once it had warmed up somewhat, there was a hint of honey and some oranges too.

The body to Swan Lake Miel Blanc had a slightly sour edge to it – not unpleasant mind. The biscuity body paired off well with the honey and oranges, making it a nice soothing beer to drink. However, the flavours never really developed nor got bolder, so after a while, Swan Lake Miel Blanc did seem samey.

Swan Lake Miel Blanc The Bottom Line

Swan Lake Miel Blanc is a nice, light beer. It won’t excite but it is worth trying.

Been drinking beer since longer than I can remember. You can find me in a bar, on the slopes, or doing DIY. I enjoy porters, imperial porters, golden ales, and amber / viennas.
