0.5 l bottle. Orange-brown, tan head. Very fruity and hoppy aroma, with some of the malt winning through. Flavor is more to the hoppy side, with the malt almost providing balancce, but not quite. Some carmel in the flavor behind the sharp hops. Very light on the palate.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. The colour is brown-red, the liquid is clear. The foam is white and very thin, making the brew look a little sad.
The smell is loaded with a complex and rather tricky, chemical flavour of hops. I found notes of bitter lemons, bitter almonds and a touch of yeast.
The carbonation is rather mild giving it a nice, soft feel. The small bubbles make it more like a cask beer than a bottled brew.
The taste is dominated by the bitter and aroma hops, but the somewhat sweet malt gives it a good body and a balanced tasting experience. The aftertaste is a bitter one with a complex, dry taste.
This is a session beer that might need some time to get into, but it is worth it!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden amber, with a creamy head, giving off aromas of fruity malt and some hops. Dry and bitter, with spicy hops balancing some roasted malt and dark fruit flavors. Medium bodied, it fades to a lingering bitterness in the aftertaste. Although not exceptional, this is a pretty good and well-balanced bitter.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A hazy dark orange beer, very carbonized which gives a froathy light brown head. The aroma is sweet with notes of oranges and caramel. The flavor is very roasty and bisquity with notes of caramel, that gives it an OK sweetness, but it is very well balanced with a dry slighlty bitter and slightly woody end.

It wasn’t surprise, it was shock. Only 4.3% but lots of spices, fruits, chocolate and roasty notes. Thanks God, it could be easily found in supermarkets.
