3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amber ale, misty, nice head. Very nice hop aroma, lightly floreal; some caramel too. In the mouth, the first impression is the hop, strong but not aggressive, aromatic; then some malt with light caramel, completely overwhelmed; finally the hop strikes back, aggressive, bitter. The palate is aromatic, strong and long, maybe too much bitter, but with an interesting hint of nuts and bitter orange.
