2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from the Kuća Piva in Zagreb, shared with Pekko and heavy. Poured an amber body with a big white head. Sweet grainy malty nose. Bitter herbal taste, really not distinctive, and not too complex. Strong long bitter aftertaste. Another O’Hara’s that I just couldn’t bring myself to like (only the Celebration Stout wasn’t like that and I loved it). Meh. Will rerate though.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Clear golden color with a small white head. Fresh aroma of floral and grapefruity hops and some biscuity malt. Nice hoppy flavor with flowers, some fruitiness and some backing malt sweetness (biscuits and bread hints), finishes moderately bitter with some citrus. Medium-bodied with a rather strong carbonation. I’d like a bit more bitterness, and the over-carbonation is a bit annoying, but the hops aroma and flavor are nice and make for a good drinkable beer.
