3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Dark tree sap pour, frothy receding head. Heavy spruce and malt aroma - quite forest like, keeping with the sap theme... Spice, touch of citrus, a bit rum-y. Prominent malt backing. Fairly plain, clean mouthfeel. Ambers have never been a favourite of mine, but this seems to hit the right notes for what you’d be aiming for.
