3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. This is how a beer should look like, light hazed, orange color with a medium sized, white head that leaves decent lacing and stays on for a long time. Aroma is oaky, yeasty and had touches of smoke. Very faint aroma’s of peat. Flavour is medium sweet with big herbal presences and a long light smoked aftertaste. Very nice, well balanced brew.
