2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle @ home. Clear orange color, medium to full sized decently lasting white head. Don’t get a lot of aroma. Taste is also pretty hard to describe imo: I only get malts, yeast, some herbs or spices, light to moderately sweet-bitter. Average to medium body and carbonation.

Quite bitter beer with an aroma of bread. Not too special, but for old times sake an interesting beer.

Bottle, caged and corked. Pours a light hazy, orange beer with a small white head that fades really quick. Aroma is of spicy yeast and not much special. Flavour is rather bland, medium bitter with a light sweetness. Quite boring.
