3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle. Slightly cloudy, amber colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. The citrusy and fruity hoppy portion of the aroma is in conflict with the smoke malt background of the for the rest caramel malty basis - apples and ashes somehow; furthermore the smoky notes display a peaty bias, thereby carrying unpleasant hints of TCP and sticking-plaster. Taste is slightly sweet fruity, smoky and caramel malty, hints of baked apple; minimally bitter, tart-ish and citrusy hoppy overtones don’t fit in the grid exactly. Well...
