3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 0,3l. Golden/Amber. Grassy hops, malts, alcohol, and some diacetyl?. A bit of honey and apple can be distinguished when warmer. Sweet, a bit caramel, soft carbonation, and hop. A finish with hop and malt bitterness (bread/caramel) and sweetness. Nice and hoppy with some good dry caramel/bread-like malts. Pleasant, but ’super’? No.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
[Bottled at Monk’s Café, Stockholm] Clear golden, dense head. Buttery papery malt aroma. Malt sweet with generous amounts of bready malt and butter. On top of that there’s some grassy hops. An aromatic, very well balanced beer completely relying on it’s excellent malt character.

Clear light orangey golden body with a fairly lasting white head. Sweet aroma, peaches and malt. Mainly the malt characters seem to show first in the taste, body is fairly well rounded, hint of hops on the finish, couldn’t tell the alcohol was as high as it was. Enjoyable!

Bottled version. Not a bad beer at all, a little sweet perhaps. A bit of hops going on there. Enjoyable but nothing overly special.
