Songbird Maltina d’Epices Aroma and Taste

Songbird Maltina d’Epices poured out a ruby red brown colour with a large frothy slightly off-white head on top that collapsed quickly on itself. There was as strong malty backbone to the beer, with a mix of spices coming through the caramel body – star anise bringing a spicy kick, with some subtle coriander notes coming through too. Songbird Maltina d’Epices is not a beer for hop heads by any means.

The body was smooth and full of malty flavours – lots of caramel and spice coming through. Lots of star anise and coriander throughout. The cloves came through too once Songbird Maltina d’Epices had warmed up. The lingering spices left a warming sensation on the tongue during the aftertaste.
