4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a clear dark amber with an off-white, almost creamy head. The head quickly disappears. Very little carbonation.
The hops aroma with a bready malt sweetness.
A good roasty bitterness that is quite long lasting with quite a bit of hop flavour.
Medium, almost creamy mouthfeel. A good amount of carbonation on the tongue.
The aroma and flavors become a LOT better as the beer is warming up towards room temp.
Overall a very drinkable beer that I would happily consume in large quantities!
500ml Bottle Poured. Thanks Esme for bringing this gift for me!
