2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle at Griffin’s Steakhouse, Stockholm, Sweden. Has little to no aroma at all, a slight grassy note but not much. Taste is slightly bitter but very watery, more of everything would’ve been great. Drinkable and thirst quenching but boring as hell.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bitters just don’t hold up for commercial distribution, so get em local or brew em yourself. With that said the aroma is caramelized sugar sweetness with a stale bread smell. The favor is much the same with a lot of toffee flavor and the burton on trent body and saltiness you’d expect. A muted version of a great style not worth the money here in the states. Get your bitters fresh, young and tender.
