2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
hazy orange brown body, off white head. Aroma has sharp pungent yeast, vegetable and sweet malt aroma. But flavour is more than expected. Sone lemon and spicy mellow maltiness. Although it leaves bit unpleasant aftertaste there is much potent in this beer. Never thought that I say this but it needs alcohol like food needs salt. Some nice flavours but mixed in sweet blurry maltiness.
