2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft at Adstra Gold Micro Brewery Singapore. Peppery aroma! Dark amber pour, light head and no lace. Pepper aroma, pepper taste! No hoppines at all and no bitterness as advertised. Quite awful really even though the brewer seems quite passionate! He did give me a mix of the IPA, Bok and Golden Ale later in the evening which was a whole lot better than the IPA on its own. I like the brewer, but he has much to learn!
