3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Misty amber body and stable head. Biscuity malts, light roast even, plus some smooth sweetness. Tiny bit of diacetyl even, but in a good body enriching way. That makes for an excellent mouth feel with fruity hops really shines through and a great soft bitterness in the ending. I usually like these type of ales much better in cask form, as bottles theory rarely are enticing, but this did it very well for me! (50cl bottle from Beer City)
