3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Appearance- clear, amber, big white pillowy head which leaves loads of lacing. Lots of aroma- zesty, zingy, lime, lemon, floral hints, citrus. Taste- fruity, smooth, hint of bitterness, orange peel, bit of carbonation, hops. Bitterness lingers for a bit. Not bad, better smell than taste.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear, amber, with small dappled off-white head. Aroma has whiffs of caramel. A bit too much carbonation, leaving the finish astringent. Fuller-bodied than a typical ale.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours golden amber with not much head. Not much aroma, there’s just a hint of hops and a hint of something like sugar or caramel. Taste is mostly bitter, and the bitterness overwhelms what might else be there. As a result, the palate is a bit puckery. The overcarbonation from being bottled also doesn’t help.

50 cl. bottle @ home, gist from Rick. Pours amber with a thick off-white head. Has a distinct hop aroma reminding me of weed. Nice bitter and malty taste and a surprisingly full body given its ABV.
