2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
50 cl swingtop bottle.
unclear brown, small offwhite head that doesn’t last long.
dry hoppy, bitterhoppy, almost a little citrussy, very faintly sweet aroma. aroma is definetly very subtly flowery or fruity.
flavor is quite sweet, almonds, caramel, sort of like a sweet cake dissolved in water with some bitterhops to balance. drinkable, but not my favorite flavor.
strange fruity flavor might be from a mild infection, but probably just is how it is supposed to taste.

Bottle from utobeer had at home. Alround rating: Sweet gariny malts, touch of biscuity almond cake like maltyness, grassy and peppery hop is trying its best to balance but its defo on the sweetside. Decent stuff.

2.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy brown color. Thick white head. I can tell this will have some nice lacing. Smells of malt and maybe a little of nuts and bread. I might have a bad bottle because the smell is kind of offensive and foul. Taste has notes of metal, bread, butter, and nuts. Lacing was very strong. The look is amazing but the taste is a bit average.

UPDATED: OCT 30, 2009 Slightly hazy golden with a small white head. Nicely balanced aroma of malt, German hops and a little DMS. Sweetish malty flavour with just enough hop flavour. Soft and full mouthfeel
