Bernsteinfarben, wenig weißer Schaum. Tolles Hopfenaroma, leicht süßmalzig obendrein. Im Antrunk jedoch recht trocken, schmeckt getreidig, leicht brotig, um dann bitter auszuklingen. Etwas unausgewogen.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a slightly murky golden amber with one finger head with moderate lacing. Toasted malt, nuts. Very bitter with no sweetness at all. Earthy. Medium body with sticky mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Spruce and herbal hops. Long bitter finish. It’s pretty good, but one dimensional hop character.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Robust aroma is quite hoppy and has firm yeasty, fruity and woody tones. It pours a clear dark amber with a very thick, fluffy, and rather persistent wheat head. Well-rounded flavor has malty, hoppy, fruity and subtle yeasty and woody tones, quite satisfying. Mouthfeel, though, leaves a little to be desired, a bit thin and not too fizzy. Still, when the texture is the weakest point, that is hardly a drawback. Bark for this one!
