3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sour coffee aroma with hoppy bitterness coming through, pleasant. Big thick foamy beige head. Surprisingly hoppy for a mild, lends a good character to the brew. Slightly grapefruity. Can’t really get the coffee / dark fruit / caramel but still nice. Good texture.
