2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
33cl bb10/2015, Maruhn. Good pale yellow pour, macropored. Near-floral beginning upon first whiff, then soon enough mainly cardboard box which has contained sand cake biscuits at some point. Turns hay dry, herbal extract bitter, then vegetal-bitter on second sipping. Maybe not quite the beer that will make you pray for another Mongolian horseback invasion, but a much more drinkable faceless international pale lager than expected.
