2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
En misstänkt infekterad flaska. Syrlig, fuktigt trä, kokta grönsaker, lite platt och med liten humlekaraktär. Ändå okej gräsig lite rå beska och en liten nelson-vibb. Får väl prova igen vad det lider.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Slightly hazy golden with a large white head.
I wonder if the beer was infected? The aroma was not pleasant, sour and stale. The taste was not much better. I did not finish the bottle.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 50 cl. Pours a hazy golden with an off-white head. Fairly fresh flowery hop aroma. Medium body, a lightly sweet malt profile which fairly quickly is balanced by a rather interesting hop profile containing both hay, flowers and citrus leaving a solid bitterness. Unfortunately it has an unfortunate dusty and earthy edge that deducts quite some. 100312
