3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle (Alko Arkadia, Helsinki)
Fairly simple sweet exotic fruity hop aroma, some sticky crystal malt mashiness. Smooth palate, pleasant carbonation. Slightly floury malts, a little sweeter than I’d like, but that does help keep the alcohol in check. Spicy mandarin and orange peel spiciness. Some stale pepperiness in the finish. Arrives quickly , and leaves quite quickly too. Not an unpleasant encounter, but they really need to leave the floury mashiness behind, probably crystal malts.
