2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Stockmann alcoholic beverages department (€ 3,80 + 0,08) in Tallinn, May 2014. Pours deep amber, hazy. Head is white and stays beautifully. Looks great! Aroma strikes at first as surprisingly boozy, although it doesn’t get much in the way of the overall caramelly and bittersweet character. Something weird in here too. Dry dirt? Metallic? Or is this indeed the reek of stale bureau/ocracy? But it’s really not that bad. Later as it warms, the distinctive Amarillo steps more into light, making it slightly more likable. Taste is intensely bitter, somewhat citrusy and fruity, dark honey-like sweet, caramelly, yeasty, grassy, also dirty and dusty. Medium body, bit less than medium carbonation. Dry bitter finish, long lasting. Love IPA’s but I’m really not a fan of this one. Too old school. Too malty. Disappointing really.

(Bottle): Pours a hazy copper colour, white head. Aroma of malt, bread, slight citrus notes. Flavour is much of the same. Very boring, dull and has a weird aftertaste. Not my thing.
