3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: Clear amber color with a finger thick white that leaves a fine lacing.
Aroma: Caramel malty, light hoppy and fruity.
Palate: Medium body. Slightly sweet and a fine bitterness. Average carbonation.
Taste: Well balanced and nice malty, fruity and mild hoppy.
Overall impression: I do personally prefer Bitter from a bottle. A lot more fresh because a bit higher carbonation. This one was a perfect example. Sadly they did not have it on tap at my visit. So I could not compare.
Personal stats: Bottle @ source
