2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
0.25 l bottle at the source, best before August 2016. Slightly hazy, golden amber with a medium large, frothy, slowly diminishing, white head. Sweetish, slightly spicy aroma of caramel, honey and clove. Sweetish, slightly spicy taste of caramel, honey and lots of clove, followed by a short, slightly bitter, rather yeasty-spicy finish. Thin to medium body, quite effervescent mouthfeel, average to lively carbonation. Calling this a Pilsener is a joke, tastes like a watered-down version of their tripel.
