3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle. Hazy, orangey golden colour with average to huge, thick, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Jelly biscuit hop aroma, slightly grainy background, some gooseberry, more citrusy Cascade upcoming with time. Taste is minimally tart, dry, hoppy, "green-ish" lemon-lime-’chlorophyllic’, a grainy-bready basis flashes up in the middle part, afterwards the hop reigns again, not untinged from bitter and chalky hints. Neither in colour nor in taste on level with my expectations.
