2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Looks good. Not much aroma, some caramel maybe. Deep angular bitter taste. Fine without being exciting in any way. Insert sarky remark about executives and their ability to detect quality.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle. The copper body is topped by a thin but persistent white head. Aroma is light but can detect some spice. Taste is dark fruit, deep caramel and light floral hop flavours. Good balance and a decent palate lifted by moderate carbonation. Could certainly go another.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Amber with spiderwebs. Has a strong malt body thatís borderline cloying, borderline cardboard. Reminds me a bit of a cloying Scotch Ale. But the plums and apricots of the finish save it. While youíre drinking it, it feels astoundingly boring. But immediately afterwards itís nice and delicate. Strange. Props to the yeast, I guess.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
23/06 A 0.5 l bottle courtesy of Marko, thanks for sharing! It poured clear amber body with small head. Caramel and nuts aroma. Sweetish flavor, caramel and fruity malty, herbal hoppy and somewhat grainy, but still smooth. Medium bodied with long, again caramel and herbal finish. A decent bitter.
