Daisen G Beer European Amber Aroma and Taste

Daisen G Beer European Amber poured out a dark reddish-brown colour with a plump white head on top that unfortunately collapsed in on itself to leave nothing but a few bubbles around the edge of the top of the beer. Daisen G Beer European Amber had a distinctly smokey, caramel aroma to it, along with an earthy, noble citrus hop aroma too. An interesting nose really on the beer – it wasn’t off-putting but it certainly was a little unusual to be smelling this concoction of aromas.

At an IBU of 40, I expected some bitterness to come through, but if there was, then it was either hiding behind the roasted, smokey, caramel flavours, or the flavours were just a bit shy to come through. Daisen G Beer European Amber was more malt forward than I thought for an American amber, so I’m guessing that’s why it is a European amber perhaps? The lingering smokiness stuck around right through into the aftertaste, along with a slight lemony sweetness to it. Byt that point, Daisen G Beer European Amber had become rather one dimensional and left me wanting for a proper American amber.

Daisen G Beer European Amber The Bottom Line

Daisen G Beer European Amber had an interesting profile to it, but it’s not something I’m in a hurry to try again.
