3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear amber to orange colored. Low blond top. Smell of hay-ish hops and light caramel malts. Medium full. Taste is more fruity than malty. Quite modest, with a note of flowery, maybe soapy hops, and a light toasted/caramelly malt base. Short, bitterish ending. No flaws, not very interesting either. [Sampled at the brewery, 01.09.13]

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
500ml bottle at home. Clear amber pour, thin, quickly passing white head. Big bubbles. Aromas are malty, not much else, just malty biscuits. Taste has a little bitterness, but mostly just malty sweetness. Didn’t really like it.
