Bottle. Pours a clear, deep amber, with a generous, foamy off-white head.
Fairly uninteresting flavor mainly of caramel malts, with alcohol and slightly metallic hops in the background.
Very faint malt & hop aroma.
Light body, soft carbonation, smooth mouthfeel.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml bottle. Brownish copper. Clear. Tall thick creamy white head that clings to the glass. Fresh cut grass aroma. Floral and grassy with a note of chestnuts. Soft texture. Nice and rich nutty flavours with a sweetish malt edge. There is also quite a lot of bitterness that lurks in the background, and it balances the sweetness nicely. I quite like this beer. Finishes dry with a bitterness that lingers.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Had two bottles, one room temperature and one cold. The one at room temperature was terrible, not worth anything. The cold one had a nice creamy mouthfeel and a bit of sweetness that made it pleasant. The flavor was mainly alcohol and malt. Not terrible if cold. It should be noted that as it warmed up, it started to taste bad.
