3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 330 ml at home, from a trade with Countbeers, thrown in as an extra, many thanks!
Pours a deep red coloured beer, with a crystal clear body. Tall off-white head, thick, with good retention, leaving thick lacing walls around the glass.
Aroma is still hoppy although this one is a couple years past its bbd, tropical fruits, some pineapple, mandarines, cookie dough, old paper,
Taste is sweet and very fruity, with some tropical fruits and the orange peel-mandarines of cascade hops.
Thin body, good soft carbonation. Dry palate.
This one has hold up very well, with most of its qualities intact. Enjoyable, tasteful and very drinkable.
