3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
It seemed to me to be a big muddy-russet-red coloured pint with vague aromas of amber resin and herbal spruce. Flavours similar with a chewy body and surprisingly coarse bitterness. That said, this is a beer that doesn’t suffer for lack of character.

Draft at Om’s, courtesy of staff, thanks! Clear amber color, small white head. Aroma of light pine. Taste is similar. Middle of the road.

The head is good, the body amber. It smells sweet, intensive hoparomatic, bit malty. The taste is malt- and hoparomatic, fruity, hoppy, more and more hoppy with the time, bit flowery in the aftertaste. Good 12/11/12/11/-/12
