4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
355ml bottle from The Wine Emporium. Big tongue numbing beer that shocks the palate with hops. Enjoyable though.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pine and pink grapefruit over a biscuity malt base. Yes, this one is both full of malt and of hops. Some almond partly mingling with a booziness - this spoils the whole picture a bit. The taste is sweetish, the finish warming with a surprisingly restrained bitterness. The mouthfeel is thisk and oily, yes, even fatty I would say. And this oiliness is a bit too much, as it seems to dampen the flavour. The aroma shows that both hops and malts have big potential in here but it never shows in the flavour due to the thick oiliness. Altogether it means that the beer disappoints.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fruity notes, orange, herbal traces and pine on the aroma.
The taste is fresh, with pine as the predominant note. The fruity touch is less than intense than the flavour one, predominating citrus above all of them. Bitter finish, with some apricot traces.

Fat malt backbone, jamy, some pine, corn, citric, sort of stale hoppiness, alcohol. Amber colour, medium off-white head, lacing. Big bite, mid-sweet, ABV evident, potent, but not that complex. Fullbodied, soft carbonation, bitter finish. Does the job.
