3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
The beer flew trough the air like a fountain after opening the bottle, what a waste. The beer was quite warm, due to refrigerator malfunction. The beer has a dark amber color, almost brown. The thick layer of rough almond colored foam disappears quickly. The beer smells a little bit metaly. The beer has a little hoppy smell, which gives a tiny citrusy flavor. The smell is not that strong, but quite pleasant. The taste is nice. There is a decent amount of bitterness. The beer has a tiny roasted barley flavor, very nice. There is also a hoppy flavor, which causes a refreshing sensation. The beer is very nice, unfortunately it was not refrigerated.
