3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours hazy light orange from the bottle. The crown soon dissipates to fine lacing. The aroma is subdued and goes in the direction of ginger tonic. Taste is rich malt, honey, caramel, and slides into a warming, lightly bitter finish. Chewy and creamy with overall relatively low carbonation. Overall pleasant and consistent. Would pair well with most meaty dishes.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle @ Naiv / Frankfurt Germany --- Aroma of fruit and hops. Cloudy light amber, white head that drops to a thin cover, broken sheets of lace. Taste is caramel malt with yeast that quickly passes medium carbonation, then a bit of spice and maybe some hops on the way to a lingering semisweet malt finish. Good, not great
