3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
50 cL bottle. Pours almost golden dark brown with a little reddish hue. Diminished tan head. Roasted malt and corn aroma, vague chocolate like note. Flavour is medium sweet with a solid roasted malt base going into a distinct acidic touch. Nice lingering almost breadish finish yet it stays light acidic and dry. Nice one.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A Mes rate: 50cl bottle from Kris Wines.
Mid brown with a huge head that settled to nothing all to quickly. Nice enough colour though. German maltiness in the aroma but with a nice dryness to it and some yeast, fruit and a little treacle toffee. Flavour is more of the same with strong straw and hay notes giving it a little funk. Dry and earthy finish. Not a big scorer but rather enjoyable.
