3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle 35,5 cl. Darker copper in color with brownish medium lacing head. Notes of chocolate, roasted, toasty, nuts, syrup, caramel, earthy, spices. Pretty heavy malted, could use more hops. The balance of hops and malts seem wrong. Bit harsh.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
355ml bottle. Dark brown pour with lots of red in it. Moderate head. Aroma is west coast hops and dark malt. Taste is more like one of those aggressively hopped reds. Wife said it tasted sour, but I think that was just the grapefruit note in the hop mixed with the darker malt sweetness. Whatever it is, I enjoyed it even if she didn’t. More flavour than usual for a brown.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Roasty malt aroma ruins any chance of appreciating citra. Seems pointless. Bit of smoke, not entirely bad, but not going to finish.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled 2YX (Whatev that means)
Pours a nice cinnamon brown with some etched surface foam that is oat colored. Smells of toasted oats, some malt syrup, smacks cereal, and bit of cardboard. Smells sweet. Flavor is toasted and sweet oats, some cola, some bakin soda flavors. The body on this is surprisingly empty with carb and an off dry finish. I’m not impressed ewith this beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Bottle, 0.355 l - BBE 9/2015, from Alko, 20131129) The beer poured dark brown and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had malts, caramel, fruitiness and molasses. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, caramel, molasses, raisins and bitterness. Afteraste had caramel and bitterness. Weird brew. Tastes a bit like oxidised bitter even though this should be a quite fresh bottle.
