3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.33l bottle. this is a cloudy one, light burgundy-brown in color and it has a small quickly sidesticking and light bubbly off-white top. I’m also noting some big dark sediments at the bottom of the glass. On the nose it’s quite fruity and a bit sweet. Sticky caramel - and lots of it with a light grassy hoppy thing in the background - also surrounded bu ripe strawberries and malt drops. The sweetness dominates. Quite nice I have to say. It’s right on average carbonated and the mouthfeel is light sticky-oily. Sticky sweet caramel in the flavor balanced by a strong hoppy bitterness. Some branches and dust also, and there is also a hint of alcohol. It has what you might call a green flavor. Not to over-complicated, fresh or exciting, but still tasty. 29.11.2012
