3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Half Time. Pours dark copper with a slight fizzy beige head. Aroma is noble hop with some underlying lightly roast malt. Med minus body. Flavor is slightly sweet, has just a little grassiness, and has significant roast malt. There also seems to be some rather unique flavor - but maybe that’s part of the hop bill. Relatively light, fairly tasty. Head and shoulders above the typical pale lagers that seem to abound in the hotter climes.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
330ml bottle - Thanks Aresh!
On pouring, quite a bit of haminess, but in the glass it’s just a bland dark lager, probably only worth 3. Actually, only 2, as it’s a bit like minerally water. Looks a nice rich red, small off-white head. Taste is a horror, nasty minerals. Finish is bitter and minerally, drying. Actually this is pretty nasty, it’s just in the horror zone. I had hoped this would be a palate cleanser, but it’s horribly acidic!
