3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Lightly hazym amber, minimal head. Distinct grapefruit aroma. Dry with clean, crisp mouthfeel. Bread and crystal malt rolled in layers of grapefruity hops. Short mid bitter finish. Simple concept, not much depth, but still tremendously well made, relaxed and likable.
