3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dangerously delicate & refreshing for a beer of 6.5%. On the nose light spice & malt, & a pure gold in the glass. The palate is rounded with hints of perfume, spice & malt with a delicate sweetness. The finish is clean & fresh with a nice bitter dryness. The weight In the mid palate gives a slight sense of the strength, but the delicate style & fresh clean, dry finish makes this a great summer beer. Is it too expensive? probably
