3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle @ THT January. Pours a clear golden beer with a small white head on top. Aroma of sweet tropical fruits, some pineapple and peach with some sugary notes. Flavor has some rum influences, basically it’s white rum with sugar influences and some beery notes. Not very complex and the barrel aging does not really add another layer to this beer. Quite ok, not much else.
