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!

Bra beska, inte allt för kraftig (Medium). Utöver humlen tyckte jag det fanns en liten gnutta honung. Utseende mässing ett mästerverk, guldigt grumlig med en knopp som heter duga !

Sample on tap at Copenhagen Beer Celebration. Deep golden colour, head slightly off-white. Aroma of fruity hops / red fruits / blackcurrants, nice. Well balanced and pleasant flavour, distinctly hopped but not too much, sufficient malts. Would buy again.
