3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: Beautiful clear orange amber with short lasting white head
Aroma: Green apples, bread
Taste: Fruity and floral undertones. Finish with a bready bitterness
Palate: Light body. Flat with spicy undertones.
Overall: Very drinkable, although the bitter finish sticks with you long after the drink. Interesting, subtle fruit undertones makes this more complex than the body might make you believe.
