2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap @ Take One. Clear golden orange, white head. Aroma of pine, hops, some fruity sweetness. Flavour is quite harsh, pine/resin, grainy and pilsner-like. Not pleasant, rather unbalanced. The regular Brigand is one of my favourite beers, so this was a real disappointment. I admire the effort, but the execution is far from good.

Light to moderated sweet flavor with again a hint of bitterness. Light sweet fruity and mild floral finish.

On tap. Clear, golden orange body with a small and diminishing off-white head. Weak aroma of malt and citrus fruit. Flavor is light malty, some caramel and a certain bitterness. Not completely in balance, relatively boring and definitively no IPA.

Iím pretty sure this is a retired beer. One of the first IPAs iíve tasted but definitly not the best. It scored nice but not as high a some other IPAs. This one is not really hoppy enough for me, but still a good beer.
