3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled (from AbM). Amber colour, mediumsized beige head, that leaves some lace. Aroma is floral notes along with a quite strong caramel and bready maltiness to it. Flavour is very nicely malty along with a quite strong floral and a bit citric hopping. Very pleasant, especially as it warms up a few degrees from being fridge cold.
