3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sample from bottle, tasted a bit too warm. A golden pilsener, somewhat better hopped in both aroma and flavor than most of its industrial counterparts - but given the high price, I am inclined to rather spend that money on some of Fanø’s ales. Will re-rate if I can get a full bottle, though.
