3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light amber; huge fluffy head, disappearing. Quite hoppy nose - noble hops, but immediately overwhelmed by metaloxide, wet dog, meaty. Taste starts again like the nose: quite hoppy. Some sugar, and metallic flavour is confirmed. Palate is very neutral. Not very well-bodied. In the end, the hoppy bitterness stays around. Not really bad. I would have preferred it being a bit more affirmative in the hops idea.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A Sim rate (Bottle at the Kulminator): Very citric aroma but not overwhelmingly so with some soap too. Flavour is slightly spicy - perhaps corriander? The bottle expired in 2001 so maybe some of the flavour was lost in the years. Finish is particularly metalic and tartly alcoholic. Quite a decent beer. Appearence is gorgeously cloudy, with a nice thick initial head and decent lacing.
