1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle 350 ml from Bier-Bienne (CH). Golden beer, without foam, with a small sparkling with big bubbles. Malt flavors, toffy, alcohol feeling in spite of the low rates. The taste is soft, brown sugar, corn syrup and grain. A bit heavy, lack of pep, in spite of the prickle on the tongue. End short and slight bitter. A good example of lager of warm country.
