3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle (K CM, Kammpi)
Lovely citrussy friuty and almost floral aroma. Pale, but a little
hazy, and with a brief head. Initially a bit thin and watery, but
certainly with a pleasant hoppy bite. However, as you go down the
glass the hoppy finish builds up and build up until you get quite a
tingle with every sip. Malts are light, but balance the hops well, and
make this a very good blond ale. Anyone ticking this from less than a
whole pint is not giving it a proper chance, as these hops are great.
