0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 1/20
Aroma: Medium wet rag?, earthy, (uncooked) octopus. Geranial. ink
Appearance: Dark gold, copper body. Small, tan head. Fair retention. Lacing.
Flavour: Medium earthy, off-hops, geranial. ink. Dry finish, light astringency.
Mouthfeel: Medium body. Medium carbonation. Light astringency.
Overall: I am not sure what the taste should be, but this is weird! Nothing points to the beer being off, but the plant matter/strange flavours makes this difficult to drink.
500 ml bottle, poured. Thanks Andre!
