2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle @ home. Aroma is huge fruity esters, bubblegum, banana etc. Too much and a bit artificial. Flavour is again huge esters, thin body, no malt to back it up. Meh.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle 330 ml at home, poured into a tulip glass. ABV 5%
Pours a very deep orange colour on the body, one cold say light amber too. Big off-white head collapsing fast and leaving no lacing on the glass.
On the aroma malts and intense caramel and butter, light hazelnut as well.
Very sweet taste, full of malts and caramel, toffee. Becomes very light bitter on the aftertaste.
Thin body, average carbonation. Good dryness on the palate.
Overall nothing special, but drinkable enough.
