3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A balanced yet tasty brown ale. Far sweeter than many of its ilk, and harbors almost no bitterness. Nothing mind-blowing but it’s substantial and drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
resin, floral, citrus. very strong resin aroma that overpowers the caramel, roasty, toffee flavours of malt. amber, hazy, white to off white head, minimal head. the hops again overpower the malt, lots of resin, some tropical fruits. from the malt i could sense toffee, caramel, some raisins. medium body, creamy, slick feel, lively, long finish, ok bitterness. quite nice but the dry hop aromas stick out too much, could be more balanced.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
33cl bottle at the Underdog, Athens. Pours coppery brown, with small creamy diminishing off-white head. Medium body, oily texture, soft and silky mouthfeel, fair lacing, average carbonation. Rich aromas of dried fruits, like plums, raisins, toasted barley, hints of grapes, somehow winey. The soft bitter touch of citra hops adds some twisted sourness, and hints of lemon peel reveal as time goes by. Very complex, but also very balanced, not the average brown ale. Tasty, drinkable, enjoyable ale. Also a rare find in Greece. I loved it!

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Brown color, slightly hazy appearance. Thick and stable beige head. Beer was bit on the warmer side to let the aroma stand out. Wonderful aroma of burnt caramel, toffee, dried prunes and appricots. Palate is normal given its ABV. Hops contribute to complexity with aroma and taste. Very mild bitterness ending. Full complexity with low alcohol and plateau.
Original and enjoyed.
