Aroma mild hint of spice. Some heat, sweet bottom, phenolic base.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Birra dal colore giallo vivace. Maltata al naso, sorprendente in bocca. La genziana è presente ma non invadente. Retrogusto quasi fresco e poco amaro che resta in bocca per molto

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Growler. Gold with a modest white head that’s soon gone. Aroma of oranges, peaches, bitter herbs, licorice. Sweet with stone fruit, oranges, gentle herbal bitterness, pepper, licorice. A somewhat exotic golden ale that’s a bit oversweet for me.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
19-May-12 - Slowbeer on tap - Ginseng-ginger earthy citrus aroma. Cloudy deep amber colour, nice head and fluffy lacing. Starts with a lemonade flavour when cool, but opens to a lovely complex herbal sweet earthy apricot bitter finish and subtle ginseng like herbal aftertaste. Impressed with the crafting of this beer, along with the complexity of flavours.
