3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap @ Bĺde &. Unclear dark orange body with a small. Lacing off-white head. Aroma has mild malt and medium citric fruity with some pine. Quite smooth malty flavor, some citric fruit and decent bitterness. Don’t know if this one is a bit old, but the flavor seems to be more malt based than hop driven, still not a bad beer. Smooth malt flavor and quite balanced even with not so much bitterness. Fine body and smooth aftertaste. Good choice with my dinner.

Creamy medium body, getting to the thick side. Lively carb. Lightly toasted caramel on the mid palate under tons of steady pleasant citrus and a bit of tropical fruit. Refreshing finish. Nice one.
