2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Medium brown colour, very silky head. Very low carbonation. Some oakiness comes through in the aroma. The head is quite sour on the lips. The mild malty flavour is quickly washed away by a quite citric, mildly acidic flavour. Later, a warming aftertaste.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(bottle, 33cl) Hazy, amber colour with a medium-sized tanned foamy head. Moderately sweet and lemony fruity-sour aroma with light notes of cara-malt and yeasty spice. Sweet flavour with a tinge of sourness, medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Cara-malty taste with lemon-fruity and mildly spicy notes; sweet and slightly sour-fruity finish with a tinge of caramel. Okay but not overly impressive. 21.III.11
