3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear copper-amber colour with brownish head, leaving textbook lace. Bready, freshly baked cake, eggbread, caramel malt. Much more bitter taste, quite dry, leafy flavours with hoptouch, and just a touch of (old) bread. Unfortunately there’s a distinct touch of diacetyl there too, responsible for near all the sweetness. Pity - would have rated much higher without. Retronasal again some bitterness - like horse chestnut flavour. Slick, well-filled, a tad too smooth. Pity about the diacetyl, otherwise good amber Vollbier.
